What a wonderful weekend getaway it was for my hubs and myself a few weeks back in Victoria, BC! Truly a romantic couple’s retreat on Vancouver Island at one of the most beautiful resorts, I’m so excited to share our experience with you guys. That weekend my hubs and I woke up early on Friday morning and drove to the ferry port outside of Seattle to sail off to our destination. It was such a fun experience sailing away from Seattle back to our country for a getaway. Even though I’ve visited Vancouver Island many times, it will always be one of my favorite destinations to visit in Canada. Victoria in particular is one of the most beautiful places, and I always seem to get my holiday vacation fix when I’m visiting there.
We had the pleasure of staying at The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa for two nights and loved everything about it! Offering both the spa and golf experience, my hubs and I felt the immediate sense of paradise when we arrived. I especially enjoyed our couples massage treatment at Sante Spa Victoria. Talk about creating that romantic couple’s retreat experience when getting to share the experience side by side with him! Let me tell you, when a resort has one of the best spas located within the hotel, this takes the experience to a new level.
I love when resorts offer exciting events for guests to be apart of. The Friday evening of arrival, we went to the Friday Night Flights wine tasting event held in The Cellar. This takes place in their cellar downstairs below the hotel property itself, it felt like we were literally in the wine cellar of a winery. This made for a great way to ease into the weekend while sipping some of their unique sparking wines.
It was a weekend filled with great memories, and I’d highly recommend vacationing here the next chance you get. Hope you enjoy hearing more about our getaway below, friends! Thanks for reading.

In my opinion, the best way to kick off any weekend is with a wine tasting!
The menu at the resort’s restaurant called Bella had so many great options. It was so nice to experience fresh and local ingredients during our stay.
My hubs spent most of Saturday morning golfing. A magnificent and scenic course, he absolutely loved his first round of the season.
We spent our Saturday evening at the spa. Our private couples massage took place in the most romantic and cozy room with a fireplace. We sipped mimosas while enjoying a foot scrub and purifying foot bath. Then we enjoyed a relaxing full body-massage beside each other. Mind you, I practically fell asleep in pure bliss, where at one point I almost forgot he was there too.
We left the fireplace on during our massage, it was so cozy!
After the massages, we lounged at the therapeutic mineral pool and sipped tea while soaking in the breathtaking views.
The final morning before checking out of the resort, we ordered breakfast in bed to soak in one more final relaxing moment.
Sailing back home to Seattle!
A very special thanks to The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa and Sante Spa Victoria for partnering with us for this post!
