Villa Eyrie Resort - view of Villa AquilaVilla Eyrie Resort is the first hotel in British Columbia to join the prestigious group; only 5% of applicants meet the rigorous standards.

According to Villa Eyrie’s General Manager, Alexander Fischer-Jean, the Resort is a perfect fit for the collection. “Our guests appreciate staying in a breathtaking setting in the heart of Lower Vancouver Island. What sets us apart, though, are our exclusive experiences for our guests including access to a members-only motorsports track, fishing on an untouched river via a local partnership and a myriad of exceptional hiking trails within a very short drive.”

Canadian ambassador for SLH, Larry Mogelonsky, states “Villa Eyrie Resort is the first and only hotel in British Columbia and Canada’s second, next to Trout Point Lodge, to be accepted. We chose it not only because of its location and scenery, but because of its dedication to service. We now offer a quintessential Canadian experience to guests from across North America, Europe and beyond.”
