It’s called the most beautiful and charming of British Columbia’s Gulf Islands, and one visit to this idyllic spot between Vancouver and Victoria will show you why. Salt Spring Island is breathtaking, immaculate and peaceful. You will want to stay forever. Alas, you may only have one night. If so, you will want to spend it at the Hastings House Country House Hotel, one of the west coast’s most luxurious properties.
Hastings House is located on 22 splendid acres on Ganges Harbour, Salt Spring Island’s main traffic point, where BC Ferries sailings come and go several times a day. At Hastings House, guests enjoy one of 18 eclectic guest rooms or suites and some excellent cuisine, as well as a spa and serene grounds.
This summer, the resort features a Salt Spring Escape package that costs $870 per night per couple, with a minimum two-night stay (which works out to $1,740 per couple minimum).
