“Five Star Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

We stayed at Nita Lake Resort for two nights in mid-February. This was our third stay at Nita Lake, and it remains our first choice for Whistler accomodations for its location, its spacious high-end rooms, and its exceptional staff.

The location at Creekside is very good for skiiing, and is about a 8 minute drive to the village. Fortunately the resort offers a free shuttle that runs very regularly for both drop off and pick up, so its very convenient to get in and out of the village. I know that some prefer to be right in the village, but we personally find Creekside, and particularly Nita Lake, to be far more peaceful and scenic. Nita Lake itself, of which many rooms have a view, is very nice. There's a great walking trail around it as well. Still it's only a 3-5 minute walk to the Creekside lift as well as a number of restaurants, bars, and liquor stores.

The resort is gorgeous and seems almost new. I've stayed in both 1 bedroom rooms as well as studios. They've all been large, bright, well appointed, with high ceilings and high-end finishing. Most importantly, they feel very "Whistler" in their chalet styling. The whole resort really does. Prior to Nita Lake we stayed largely at the Chateau Whistler (Fairmont) and Westin, and while both are nice, they simply don't have the charm of Nita Lake, and the rooms simlpy aren't in the same league, certainly at the studio/1 bedroom level.

Lastly, the staff at Nita Lake are uniformly excellent. They're accomodating, friendly, and professional. Pretty much what you should expect at any high-end resort. On our last stay Lola in particular was incredibly helpful, remembered our names (even our dog's, who I should mention was treated like a little king), helped us with our rooms, and on and on.

The Aura restaurant is probably the best under the radar secret in Whistler. I'm not going to say it puts Araxi and Bearfoot to shame, but it certainly compares favourably and at a much better value. The bar/louge is also top notch, I'm not a big caesar fan but everyone I've been up there with has said its the best they've ever had.

In short, Nita Lake is 5 stars across the board.

Its a very laid back chilled out atmosphere- if youre looking for a Four Seasons ski resort, head into town. This is quiet, pristine and somewhat disconnected property on a beautiful lake. WHile its not in town, we were driven to/from town in a lovely Lexus jeep upon request.

We ate dinner on our private terrace, we hiked the nearby trails which lead straight onto the property, we enjoyed the incredible spa. Just a wonderful relaxed time spent in the mountains.

This was our first stay at Nita Lake and first trip to Whistler. Our experience at the lodge helped compensate for the lack of the fluffy white stuff. It's rare that my expectations are exceeded, but Nita Lake is a gem. So much so that's it's the kind of find you hesitate posting on Tripadvisor for fear that by next year it will be difficult to get a room and the prices will be raised. But, there's probably little impact my one review will add, so I join the others in singing high praises. The aesthetic is soothing, the staff warm, the rooms beautiful, the lake view wonderful. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on our next trip.

Our room on the third floor facing the beautiful frozen lake was absolutely perfect. The room itself was so very well laid out. Very ample storage space for all the gear needed during a ski holiday. Loved the heated stone bathroom floor ! Naturally, no skies allowed in the rooms but the ski locker room at the base of Creekside was perfect.
The staff at the front desk did an outstanding job of making sure we were well looked after. The shuttle service folks were right there whenever we wantet to go to a resturant or to start the ski day at Whistler Village.
