Nita Lake Lodge named #4 Top Resort in Canada in the Condé Nast Traveler 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards

Whistler’s best boutique hotel recognized by leading travel authority for the fourth consecutive year

Condé Nast Traveler announced the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards earlier today, recognizing Nita Lake Lodge as the #4 Top Resort in Canada, with a score of 97.83/100.

“Following this exceptionally challenging year we are incredibly honoured to retain our place on the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards list of Top Resorts in Canada”, says Carly Scholz, General Manager of Nita Lake Lodge. “Moving up two spots from #6 in 2019 goes a long way to recognize our team’s outstanding efforts this year, as we’ve recalibrated much of our operations to ensure our guests’ health, wellbeing and peace of mind.”

According to Condé Nast Traveler editors: “Comfort is paramount here: double-soaker tubs, basalt-rock fireplaces, and heated floors offer an intimate counterpoint to sporty Whistler. The only lakeside property, it’s a short jaunt from Creekside lifts. Though the area lacks not for activities, the spa provides above-average athleticism in its offerings and the Lodge’s cuisine is worth staying in for.”

As B.C. residents look to plan local and authentic travel adventures, Nita Lake Lodge’s retreat-style allure shines. Tucked away from the bustle of Whistler Village on the shores of a glacier-fed lake, Nita Lake Lodge offers all guests spacious suites with lakeside or mountain views, stone fireplaces and well-equipped kitchenettes in every room and complimentary high speed WIFI, the perfect “Work From Here” base this fall or winter, with easy access to Whistler Blackcomb’s wide open spaces once the work day is done.

The Whistler Mountain Retreat package offers a 20% saving for B.C. residents and the chance to embrace the destination’s mix of culinary, arts, mountain culture and outdoor adventures, from Whistler Craft Beer Month and Friday Wine Walks throughout October to Cornucopia Food & Drink Festival in November where Whistler’s culinary community will gather safely to offer small winemaker dinners, educational seminars and more.

As winter approaches, British Columbians can embrace having one of North America’s leading mountain meccas in their backyard. Guests who have the ability to shift their weekends can enjoy quieter mid-week stays, with fewer on the mountain, endless fresh tracks, and plenty of other powder play including scenic snowshoe and fat bikes. Nita Lake Lodge’s B.C. Resident’s Winter Special offers savings of up to 35% for winter bookings.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. For the 33rd edition of the awards, readers across the globe voted for their favourite travel experiences at a time when almost no one was travelling. The brands that were recognized were the ones that readers remembered fondly and still held a connection with, helping them get through many months without travel. The full list of winners can be found here.

The 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler‘s website at and celebrated in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler US and UK print editions.
