Canada’s Most Opulent Suites
Fogo Island Inn – Flat Earth Suite | Fogo Island, NL
Perched upon a four-hundred-million-year-old rock formed by ice, fire, and sea – this 1,100-square foot two-story corner suite looks out over the swells of the North Atlantic Ocean. Depending on the season watch for bobbing icebergs or breaching humpback whales. Tucked away in a separate loft are the sleeping quarters complete with a soaker tub and wood stove, ensuring you stay cozy during all seven (yes, seven!) of Fogo Island’s unique seasons.
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise – Belvedere Suite | Lake Louise, AB
This lavish two-level suite is located in the penthouse of the majestic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Yes, you read that right. It’s a penthouse in a castle. While that itself is enough to wow the most discerning traveler, it gets better. The two balconies boast picture-perfect views of Lake Louise, while the spiral staircase leads to a secluded bedroom with a luxurious ensuite. There’s a reason this suite is so popular for weddings and honeymoons, it simply doesn’t get more romantic than this.
Sonora Resort – Sea Lion Pointe | Sonora Island, BC
Sitting on its own peninsula, Sea Lion Pointe rests on the resort’s farthest corner. This four-bedroom villa comes equipped with four Subaru Foresters, a baby grand piano, and rooftop hot tub (along with outdoor hot tubs for each room). Oh, did we mention the home theater and fully equipped wet bar? This Relais & Chateaux resort is a wilderness paradise, one which you will never want to leave.
Ritz Carlton Montreal – Royal Suite | Montreal, QC
Fit for a queen indeed, this 4,700-square foot suite features three bedrooms, two sitting rooms, and eight bathrooms.

With heated marble floors, a walk-in closet and intuitive motion sensor technology operating the light switches, this extravagant suite holds the title of largest hotel room in Quebec.
Fairmont Pacific Rim – Chairman’s Suite | Vancouver, BC
Affectionately dubbed the “Rock Star Suite”, this 2,250-square foot two-story residence is pure unadulterated luxury. Equipped with a private elevator, butler’s pantry, two living room areas and a full kitchen, you will want for nothing during your stay.

Relax in your soaker tub or admire the 8ft Swarovski crystal chandelier adorning the living room. Inspired by a Balinese Villa, this suite is modern, light-filled and utterly over the top.
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge – Outlook Cabin | Jasper, AB
Nicknamed ‘The Royal Retreat’, this regal 6,000 square-foot cabin has hosted everyone from King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth II.
