A Room With All The Amenities
When you drive up to Oak Bay Beach Hotel, you will be greeted by the friendliest staff waiting to welcome you and help with your bags. Check in will be an absolute breeze. There is lovely infused water in the lobby while you get everything organized and you will be escorted to your room in no time.
Once inside you will be greeted with amazing views no matter which direction your windows and patio are facing. We highly recommend booking an ocean view room though as we saw a few stunning sunsets and sunrises. It was also lovely being able to look out onto the heated pool area and spa.
We also have to mention that we love a beautiful bathroom. The giant soaker tub with a view out the window definitely got us in a relaxing mood.
During our stay at Oak Bay we enjoyed an amazing dinner at Faro. Their Menu is an amazing combination of Italian favourites and they will take you right back to memories of Italy.
We started with the Tuna Crudo and Melon & Prosciutto. Next up was Pizza! It was so hard to choose, but we went with The Whole Beast + Hawaiian and boy oh boy were we in for a treat. Both Pizzas were mouth watering and super tasty. Thin crust and cooked to perfection, we planned it well with two pizzas to have left overs back in the room with our view of the sunset.
While enjoying dinner we also sipped on great beers and tasty cocktails. One that stood out was the Spicy Paloma. It was super refreshing and just the right amount of kick.
Unfortunately after having the most amazing dinner, there just wasn’t enough room for dessert. If there was room though, we would have absolutely tried the Baked Lemon Tarts.
We have to say that the pools here at Oak Bay Beach Hotel are definitely the highlight of the property. With two outstanding hot tubs that light up with the night sky and a large heated pool that looks out onto the ocean, you aren’t going to want to leave this oasis. The pool deck has a large assortment of lounge chairs and gas fire pit to relax around. Enjoy a great list of cocktails and beers while you watch the boats float by, read a book, listen to the ocean waves, or enjoy the sun set off in the distance. You are sure to be relaxed here.
If this all isn’t enough of a reason to book your stay at The Oak Bay Beach Hotel, than we don’t know what is. We could also remind you that there is an amazing spa located right next to their amazing pool. There are also so many great gems on the island to explore so why not make this your home base to check a few of them out. Visit our British Columbia page to add amazing #datenight ideas to your list!
