Four Seasons Resort Whistler Unveils Renovation

Canada, Whistler, British Columbia. September 23, 2019

Nestled at the base of Whistler Blackcomb ski resort, framed by evergreen forests, Four Seasons Resort Whistler presents a newly-updated take on the classic mountain lodge. Inspired by this remarkable setting, the modern renovations embrace the spirit of discovery ever-present at Four Seasons Whistler. Backing each design choice is the dedication to creating a truly one-of-a-kind experience, one that exceeds all expectations. Each new feature and offering is a fresh opportunity to disconnect from the everyday and reconnect with the extraordinary-along the way, creating a mountain of memories.

After renovations that began in the spring of 2019, the resort debuts the property's 273 rooms and suites in anticipation of the 2019/2020 ski season. Nodding to the mountain's globetrotting guests, Four Seasons Resort Whistler blends modern interiors with alpine style, to offer a truly memorable experience at one of Canada's most iconic destinations.

Led by Vancouver-based studio DIALOG, the refurbished rooms and suites pay close attention to the unique placement of Whistler-a secluded retreat, just an hour and a half away from the international destination of Vancouver. With this in mind, the design team expanded on the concept of retreat inside the Resort's guest accommodations, combining urban-minded design elements with that of the classic lodge style, elevating conceptions of après-ski style. The resulting interiors pay homage to the nostalgia of winter chalets, while looking forward to new memories to be made.

Inside, the sweeping updates include all new furnishings, fixtures and bespoke additions in guest rooms and suites. Clean, mid century-inspired furnishings are featured prominently. Sleek, iron frame leather chairs and ashwood credenzas are contrasted with warm, raw-edged coffee tables. Foregoing more traditional bed frames, beds are complemented with plush wallcovering in a rustic, yet refined woven textile.

Adding to the stylish renovations, Four Seasons Whistler introduces its custom Interior & Tonic experience in every guest room. Partnering with the Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery, introduces a gin made exclusively for Four Seasons Whistler guests. The bar set-complete with local company Bittered Sling Lillooet Bitters and sparkling tonic-is curated by award-winning Vancouver Mixologist Lauren Mote and allows guests to après in-room with a handmade Gin + Tonic. The mountain magic: the botanical gin transforms colour once the tonic and bitters are added.

The meticulous refurbishment amplifies the stunning mountain views by creating snapshot-ready moments throughout. Each room at Four Seasons Whistler features a balcony where guests can seize every moment of the outdoors. Inside, the view is highlighted with expansive windows opening up to forest-lined mountain vistas, a view which can be taken in perched on the window seats in each room. This stunning setting is luxuriated through unfussy details such as floating brass bedside light fixtures and sculptural ceiling light features, allowing the grandeur of the mountains to be centre stage. Modern granite fireplaces in every room at Four Seasons Whistler mean guests can cozy-up fireside long after the sun goes down.

The pursuit of adventure at Four Seasons Resort Whistler is articulated through the distinctly modern revamp. By giving guests time and space to relax, connect, explore, share passions, Four Seasons Whistler is able to create new opportunities for adventure and memory making. After all, where better to embark on a new journey than on top of a mountain?

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
