Canada, with endless forests, teal lakes and towering peaks, is known for its natural beauty. Immerse yourself in the picturesque Rocky Mountains, tour Niagara Falls, feel like you’re at the edge of the world on Vancouver Island or explore Banff National Park. You could rent a vacation home, but to maximize your time why not stay at a resort, where everything is taken care of for you? Here are our top picks of the best resorts in Canada.

Just off the Vancouver coast, on pretty Pender Island, Poets Cove is a hidden oasis with 22 lodge rooms, 15 cottages and nine villas peppered along the waterfront. Opt for one of the cottages or villas for private hot tubs, wood-burning fireplaces and grand views. When you’re not sampling the best of Gulf Island cuisine at the on-site restaurants, a visit to the eucalyptus steam cave at Susurrus Spa should be top of your list.

After a day spent swimming in the outdoor pool and being thoroughly pampered at the spa, be sure to save space for one of the waffles at the Arbutus Room – try the carrot cake waffle-donut with mascarpone whip, pineapple and caramel sauce.
