In the past, we have briefly covered the advantages of visiting Canada as part of the over-50 demographic, but even we weren’t aware of the resorts there that truly cater to our lot. Today, we thought we’d look at two of the best resorts Canada has to offer, both of which come complete with suitable activities, fully functioning spas and even games that you’re bound to enjoy
River Rock Casino Resort, Vancouver
Situated on the northwest coast of Canada, riverrock.com is perhaps the most lavish hotel of its kind in the entirety of Canada. Not only is there an onsite casino, but guests will also find a fully serviced spa, several dining options and a theatre to enjoy. Every one of the hotel’s 396 suites has complimentary Wi-Fi, an iPod dock and LCD televisions complete with cable, while other amenities include 24-hour room service, premium bedding and coffee or tea makers.
What really makes this resort a premium destination for over 50s though is that the minimum check-in age is 19 meaning that every activity and venue is tailored specifically for adults. This includes the Absolute Spa, made up of six treatment rooms that offer massages, facials, body wraps and much more. The spa is also home to a mud bath as well as a number of hydrotherapy and aromatherapy treatments.
However, the real pinnacle of the River Rock experience is the casino: there are seven types of poker including Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, in addition to a stunning 114 tables where you’ll find blackjack, baccarat, craps and roulette. There are also over 1,100 slots to choose from, including video poker and progressive jackpot options. Guests who may feel intimidated by the sheer range of casino games can try their hand online before checking into the hotel, as review sites like online-casinos-canada.ca have useful guides on variants of classic games and can help visitors find the most suitable online casino for their needs.
St. Eugene Golf Resort, Cranbrook
With a spa, golf course and casino to offer, steugene.ca is the epitome of luxury rural living. Not only do the 125 rooms offer brilliant views of mountains and glorious country landscapes, they also come fully equipped with free Wi-Fi, cable, fridges, coffee makers and even video game consoles on request.
Though there are a number of sporting activities on offer such as snowboarding, skiing and mountain biking, guests are more than welcome to relax with a simple game of golf on the resort’s onsite driving range and course. Alternatively, visitors can choose from 240 slot machines to play in the casino, which include E-Roulette, E-Blackjack and a number of other titles usually found at online sites like the ones reviewed by slot-machines.ca. Plus, there is also a full-serviced lottery centre as well as an off-track betting room.
Of course, for true relaxation guests will want to head to the Silver Water Spa. There, you’ll find holistic wellness, anti-aging and rejuvenation treatments including facials, body wraps and more. The resort even employs professional makeup artists so you can get a full makeover before heading out or to one of the two onsite restaurants.
There you have it: two absolutely incredible resorts that will cater to your every need. Let us know if you’ve ever visited one of these resorts, or if you have any other recommendations to add.
