Majestic mountains, sparkling ocean, rainforests and beautiful foliage make this city a nature-lover’s paradise. Combine this with urban adventures, indigenous heritage and multicultural cuisine, and you have a destination that will keep you coming back for more.
Immerse Yourself in an Outdoor Wonderland
With quick and easy access to Whistler, the Canadian Rockies, Victoria and endless year-round water and land sports, Vancouver is your gateway to natural adventure.
Just a short walk from Shangri-La is one of North America’s largest urban green spaces, the spectacular Stanley Park. Here you'll find nature-hugging trails, family-friendly attractions and tasty places to eat.
Head further north to cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge and explore the protected wetlands of the Maplewood Flats Conservation Area. Beachgoers will find solace at Kitsilano Beach with its sun, sand and one of the world's largest outdoor saltwater pools.
Embark on an Ice Cave Heli Adventure
Discover the wonders of Whistler’s ice caves with a private helicopter ride to and from the hotel, where you'll be greeted by a personal guide to take you through the aqua blue labyrinth of the ice chambers before leading you to the safe heart of the ice caps for a specially curated five-course menu. A photographer will also be on hand to capture every single moment of this unforgettable journey.
Once back at the hotel, you'll enjoy a relaxing two-and-a-half hour treatment at Chi, The Spa and take part in an exclusive mixology lesson featuring a 12,000 year-old glacier ice collected from your recent adventure.
Unleash Your Inner-Foodie
Abandon your diet and dive right into North America's best Asian cuisine, from multi-course Chinese feasts to Vietnamese banh mi sandwich joints and the best sushi outside of Japan.
Hop on the ferry to Granville Island Public Market where you'll discover strawberries straight from Fraser Valley, Okanagan cherries, fresh Coho salmon and live Dungeness crabs for sale alongside a variety of restaurants where you can sample the local cuisine.
Over at Shangri-La, discover what the cuisine of Italy's Friuli region has in common with British Columbia at Carlino. Here you'll find freshly-made pasta and an ever-changing menu that highlights locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients.
Relax with a West Coast Wellness Escape
After a long day of urban exploration or hiking through nature, there's no better place to unwind and soothe your sore muscles than Chi, The Spa.
Named one of the best spas in the country and Canada's Best Hotel Spa by World Spa Awards, Chi, The Spa proudly offers treatments that are inspired by British Columbia's indigenous well-being traditions. It's also the only spa in Vancouver where you can purchase the small production French skincare line CODAGE Paris.
