A Weekend Getaway at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

I had the pleasure of staying at the luxury resort Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Jasper, Alberta, courtesy of Booking.com.

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is located in Jasper National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 700-acre property is situated on Lac Beauvert and hosts Canada’s #1 Stanley Thompson Golf Course, which I didn’t get a chance to play on my rainy weekend. This would also be the perfect place to stay during the winter! There’s ice skating, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing right outside your cabin door.

This resort has lakeside cabins, 8-plexes, and only a few rooms within the main hotel building. It’s a bit of a walk from my suite to the main building. You can drive or call the concierge, who will send someone to pick you up and transport you around the property.

Rooms

It was a rainy weekend during my stay, but I couldn’t have asked for a better suite—in a newly renovated 8-plex—with a wood-burning fireplace to curl up next to and a deep bathtub to soak in after exploring the property! I think this suite is larger than my own condo. The king-sized bed was also the most comfortable bed I’ve stayed at in many years!

Dining

This resort offers a few dining options. I had tea and an appetizer of chicken wings in The Emerald Lounge by a cozy fireplace. For dinner, I chose to stay inside and enjoy my suite, so I ordered room service—delicious French Onion Soup and a refreshing Watermelon, Feta, and Prawn salad.

Activities

My stay wasn’t long enough to enjoy kayaking, canoeing, or swimming, and the weather wasn’t on my side for basking in the sun by the outdoor pool, either! During my next stay, I would love to experience the spa and take advantage of more of what the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge offers.

On my drive to Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, I stopped at Columbia Icefield and experienced walking on Athabasca Glacier and venturing out onto the glass-bottomed skywalk, courtesy of Pursuit Collection! Two “must-do” activities near Jasper! The other adventure I did on this trip was a Maligne Lake Cruise to see Spirit Island. It was foggy, rainy, and smoky, so these make for interesting photos!
