The morning sunshine streams through your large balcony windows as you listen to birds singing in the pine forests outside.

The only lakefront hotel in Whistler, this tranquil resort is an escape from the busy touristic atmosphere of the mountain village.

The retreat is within easy reach of Whistler Village, yet it still feels a world away from the chattering crowds of tourists.
What is your style of mountain getaway? If you are seeking a rejuvenating break, the spa offers relaxing treatments including exfoliation, steam baths, herbal oils, soothing massages as well as rooftop hot tubs where you can soak while admiring the view. For those craving an adrenaline rush, the ski lifts at Creekside are right next door and the hotel offers free use of kayaks, canoes and bikes. Planning a family holiday? Cribs and babysitting services are available, plus the expansive family suites means you’ll never be starved for space.
Surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains, lake and forest, this lodge offers a high standard of service, cuisine, comfort and style.


Play hard in the rugged wilderness, and then relax in mountain comfort.
The luxurious suites at the Nita Lake Lodge are filled with posh amenities like basalt-rock fireplaces and balconies with gorgeous views. Stretch out on the king-sized bed or soak up the lake, forest or mountain views while sipping a glass of British Columbia wine.
The décor here is elegant and understated, emphasizing the contrast between dark-wood trim and clean-white linens. Plenty of natural fabrics, plush rugs and cozy blankets keep you warm and comfortable even in the depths of winter. There’s ample room to move, with soaring ceilings and exposed beams – yet the vibe is intimate and comforting.
Mod cons are certainly not lacking: each suite is equipped with a 40-inch LCD television, iPod docking station and kitchenette.
The bathrooms have a spa-like feel, with muted colours and atmospheric lighting. Glass-enclosed rain showers and deep soaker tubs make this space really worth lingering in.
Larger private villas and areas for entertaining are available at the resort, offering plenty of room for families or groups. If you stay at the Rainforest Suite, you can ask one of the chefs to prepare a meal right within your suite.


Pamper your body and taste-buds, while you rest your city-worn eyes on the craggy silhouettes of mountain peaks. The facilities at Nita Lake Lodge are inspired by nature, offering a true escape within the Canadian wilderness.
Soak up the sun on the patio or jump in the plunge pool surrounded by green conifers. Breathe deep and align your chakras at a yoga session, or get your blood pumping with a workout on the modern equipment at the fitness centre. Nourish yourself with fresh-pressed juice or homemade treats at Fix Café, or sigh in satisfaction as you sink into the outdoor hot tub or enter the eucalyptus steam room.
The Aura Restaurant at Nita Lake Lodge is a destination in itself, offering sophisticated bistro cuisine made from local ingredients by Chef Paul Moran – a rising culinary star who comes to Whistler after working at the Michelin-starred Pujol in Mexico City. Moran tantalizes patrons with his vegetable-forward recipes that use fresh produce from the Pemberton Valley.
Try the three-course menu and get a taste of the sumptuous ricotta gnocchi made with black trumpet mushrooms, amaretto, sage, almond butter, and dried black olive. Or sample the sticky-and-savoury cooked beef ribs with Oka-cheese mashed potatoes. It’s the perfect meal to warm your belly after a chilly day on the slopes.
Afterwards, settle in at the Cure Lounge and relive the excitement of your mountain explorations over a creative cocktail or a glass of local wine. In the winter, gather around the giant fireplace to warm up while swapping ski stories; in the summer, lounge on the lakeside patio for drinks beneath the sun.


The relaxing Nita Lake Lodge feels miles away from anywhere. But you don’t have to wander far to experience something incredible.
The lodge sits right on the shores of Nita Lake, offering soothing views of this expanse of cool, clear water. Its location provides just the right balance – far enough away from the town for peace and quiet, but close enough to be convenient.
Ski-enthusiasts will not have to go far to fulfil their need for powder: Nita Lake Lodge is within easy reach of the lifts and amenities of Whistler Creekside. This is the original base of Whistler Mountain and the site of the first gondola. As well as offering skiing, Whistler Creekside also boasts shopping, services, dining and much more – all within a pedestrian-friendly setting.
The hotel has a small plunge pool, but you could also take a refreshing dip in Nita Lake – the perfect way to cool off on a scorching summer day. You can also walk along the trails to several other lakes in the area, including Alpha Lake and Alta Lake, within 10 minutes. The Valley Trail is right outside the lodge: this paved, scenic path is ideal for walking, biking and jogging.
Guests will have free use of kayaks, bikes, paddle boards and canoes – so head into the great outdoors and start exploring.
Nita Lake Lodge also offers a convenient on-demand shuttle to the town of Whistler, making it quick and convenient to head out for lunch or shopping without having to worry about the hassles of parking. There are also trails that connect the hotel to Whistler Village as well.
So if you’re searching for accommodations that provide an authentic wilderness experience, while still providing easy access to Whistler amenities, you should take a close look at the Nita Lake Lodge.
