The Perfect Victoria Romantic Getaway

With many options of activities and accommodations, we’re here to help you know just how to spend your Victoria romantic getaway.

Romance abounds in Victoria. And it’s easy to see why.

Every year couples come from all over the world to experience the beauty and extravagance that is Vancouver Island. When they visit Victoria, they feel the romance seep in their bones. It’s inevitable.

Victoria has easily received a spot on Canada’s top 10 most romantic cities year after year.

With many options of activities and accommodations, we’re here to help you know just how to spend your Victoria romantic getaway.

First things first: book a suite in the luxurious Chateau Victoria located in the heart of downtown, just a short walk from the harbour.

This hotel is perfect for romance.

Its lobby welcomes you with opulence as the doors open to a bright and welcoming reception. With comfortable seating, fireplaces for relaxing, it may be difficult to go to your suite.

But once you do, you just may not want to leave.

Chateau Victoria boasts several floors of suites for every price point. Choose from one or two bedrooms, but be sure to get one with a view of the city or ocean.

Each suite contains a large fridge, microwave and kitchenette area perfect for bringing a few food items to help you relax.

Enjoy the comfort of breakfast in bed, or stay in and order a charcuterie platter and a bottle of wine for the evening. Either way, you may never want to leave your suite.

Cozy up in front of your fireplace, lounge on your private balcony, soak in the jacuzzi tub, or just never leave your luxurious bed. It is seriously comfortable.

Ocean Kayaking Excursion

When you are ready to head out and explore, stop first at Ocean River Sports and rent a kayak for two. You can either go on a guided tour or head out for yourselves like we did and paddle the harbour waters just the two of you.

From here, you join the busyness of the harbour itself and see wildlife up close and personal.

It’s an experience like none other and the memories you make will last a lifetime.

Relax with a drink…

After a few hours paddling, return to Chateau Victoria and warm up your insides with a one-of-a-kind drink at Clive’s Cocktail Lounge. The servers and bartenders here specialize in creating award-winning drinks.

They pride themselves in staying at the forefront of global cocktail culture. Stick to your favourite or branch out and try something new.

The knowledgable staff here are fantastic at helping you make the perfect selection. It’s a great place to unwind from your exploring.

On day two, take a break from paddling and hop into a zodiac for a tour

See humpback and resident orca whales feed and play in the waters outside Victoria’s harbour. The wildness of whales is truly an experience like none other.

Every Prince Of Whales tour also includes a bit of instruction about the whales and their habitat and if you’re lucky, a sighting of sea lions, seals, and a myriad of island birds.

When you’re ready to eat, walk back to Chateau Victoria for a romantic dinner at the highest restaurant in the city.

Every table at Vista 18 offers stunning views of Victoria and the food here is wonderful. Because the dishes are continually changing and locally sourced whenever possible, there is always something new to try.

The chef creates innovative entrees, appetizers and desserts perfect for any taste. Come for the food; stay for the views.

Amenities: See all that Chateau Victoria has to offer.

Rooms & Suites: A room for every budget. We recommend splurging on a suite for a romantic getaway, especially during the colder island months.

Although we were special guests of Chateau Victoria our thoughts are our own as always. We genuinely loved everything about our Fall Victoria romantic getaway except the parking ticket we received while out kayaking…. but I did hear it goes towards beautifying the city with flowers so think of us in the Spring.
