A wonderful Algonquin Park destination is the luxurious Couples Resort. This year-round property, billed as Canada’s only 5 Star couple’s resort is, as the name implies, all about romance and carries a strict no children policy. Couples come just to relax, reconnect and spend time away from their regular routines while enjoying outdoor adventures (plus, perhaps, a few indoor adventures, too).
This former fishing lodge also offers personalized five-course gourmet dining, served in a tastefully decorated dining room (crystal and silver service, no casual wear) or in your room. And with saunas, walk-in steam rooms and in-room Jacuzzi tubs (each in front of a wood-burning fireplace) there’s little wonder many guests don’t venture much further than the hot tub on their private screened-in deck.
Accommodations include a mix of luxurious suites, some as large as 1400 sq ft, as well as cabins with king beds, marble bathrooms, bidets and double steam showerheads. And when guests aren’t being romantic, they have access to an endless list of nature and sports activities including canoeing and nature hiking in summer, and dog sledding and snowshoeing in winter.
