The unique architecture and artistic, Victorian zeitgeist of Niagara-on-the-Lake have shaped this destination into a true rival of the neighbouring tourism giant Niagara Falls. Boasting over 80 percent of Canada's wine production, the world famous Shaw Festival Theatre, and a library that houses the largest research collection on English Canada's origins, this unassuming cultural zenith rests quietly on the banks of the Niagara River. Here you'll find the White Oaks Resort and Spa, where tranquil gardens wrap around a polished interior of cream statues and marble staircases and insist upon a quiet elegance close to the lively glamour of Casino Niagara and Niagara Falls.
Pillow top mattresses and Egyptian cotton linens dress the beds at White Oaks - attire fitting of Ontario's first Five Star Hotel Resort as chosen by Canada Select. This elegance endures in the spa on site, where 17 rooms hold trained specialists ready to pamper in one of Ontario's largest spas. Try a couple reconnect treatment where you will soak in a petal filled milk bath and enjoy side by side massages in your private suite - the signature treatment of the Spa at White Oaks.
Once you have wine on your mind, the short drive to Peller Estates Winery is sure to sate your senses with its sprawling sage and violet vineyards that yield legendary ice wine. Lessons on pairings and a calendar full of exciting events are available, and many Peller Estates wines bear the coveted VQA seal, ensuring that the wine has been made exclusively from grapes grown in the designated viticultural areas of Ontario. This region's famous wine is also featured extensively at LIV - White Oaks Four Diamond, award-winning restaurant where you can enjoy pan-seared halibut or pecan crusted rack of lamb. Play Urban Cafe offers sophisticated dining in a casual atmosphere, and there is also a Starbucks kiosk located in the club lobby for a latte treat.
Ample athletic pursuits are available at White Oaks' fitness club for an additional cost, so come prepared to battle on the tennis or squash courts, or try a relaxing yoga class. The Royal Niagara Golf Club is nearby with 27 holes on a beautifully manicured course, and if left with any time to spare, a wander around the historic forts, grand mansions and fragrant gardens of this 19th Century town will not disappoint.
