Escape to the sky

Our Mountainside Resort

Inspired by Lake Como, the Villa Eyrie Resort is carved into the mountainside of Vancouver Island’s Malahat Summit. Known for its elevated setting and soaring views of our wild West Coast, our resort overlooks the Saanich Inlet with eagles overhead and sea underfoot.

Offering luxury accommodations and service in the skies, we are here to elevate your escape. Experience Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit’s world-class, adrenaline-pumping tracks, tee off at our links or taste-test the island’s grapes. Whatever your pleasure, we’re here to please.

Island owned with local roots

Our Beginnings

The GAIN Group represents brands that need no introduction, from MINI and Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz to Porsche. Extending their expertise, GAIN broke new ground with the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, a world-class motorsport playground.

In an effort to accommodate the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit’s international members, as well as welcome non-members to experience the tracks, GAIN invested in its first venture outside the automotive realm: the Aerie Resort.

With $2 million invested in its renovation, the new Villa Eyrie Resort honours the eminence of the original retreat with refurbished interiors and elevated service. From West Coast contemporary rooms to our one-touch concierge, we’re taking your Vancouver Island escape to new heights.

Canada’s all-season motorsport playground

The Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit

Set in the foothills of Mount Prevost in Vancouver Island’s Cowichan Valley, the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit is the country’s first all-season circuit, where guests can experience the thrill of performance driving within the safety and support of impeccable engineering and qualified professionals.

Hold on tight, and experience the circuit through a series of different driving programs.
