Where to stay in Victoria, British Columbia: The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe

The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe is an excellent choice for families and an equally good choice for couples on a romantic getaway.  Although romance can't be forced, the conditions are right at Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe: the  view, the simple elegance, privacy,  quiet, and delicious food.  All positioned close to Victoria's many charming restaurants and bars and a quaint town full of history and surprises.

Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort has a spectacular waterfront location overlooking Victoria Harbour. The resort features sophisticated design in modern rooms. For the savvy traveller seeking a hotel that has everything, Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort is an excellent choice.

 



Located right across the bridge from downtown,  Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort is an impressive facility with two tennis courts, a squash court, an indoor heated salt water swimming pool with a great view of the water, a small, well-equipped gym, a warm up room, and a sauna. The resort even has its own dock.



The plaza in front of the hotel is a great place to grab a bench and kick back in the winter sun, as  boats move to and fro from the ocean.  Joggers and walkers will love the paths on Songhees Walkway that lead off from the plaza and wend their way along the water, affording breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the Olympic Mountains,  passing through Lime Bay Park, Bernard Park, and continuing for miles to Head Street at West Bay Marine Village. Nearly forty kilometres of bike trails branch out through Victoria and the surrounding area and are readily accessible only a block.



An easy walk from downtown, the hotel also offers a shuttle bus service that will drop you off and pick you up, although the walk is short.      

The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort spa is well worth a visit.  Treatments include hot stone massage, body wraps, and all aesthetic services.  It's a place for pure pampering. 

Karl Schneider, whose 3,000 hours of medical massage training can be felt as soon as his hands touch your back, knows how to persuade the most stressed out neck and shoulder muscles to relax and let go.  He works with surgical precision.  If you travel to the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe for a romantic weekend, consider booking a couples massage to help you wind down and enhance your enjoyment of each other and your weekend away.  

In addition to the usual manicures, massages, etc, the spa also arranges activities for guests like golf, whale watching, when the conditions are right, and shopping.

The Lure restaurant offers a menu with something for everyone.  The local halibut with delicate vegetables was an excellent choice.  The lights of Victoria glitter and are reflected in the water through the windows of the restaurant, as the waiter offers up an excellent list of wines.

 Service is great.  The staff are friendly and eager to help. 

Watching teams of rowers digging their paddles into the water, seated at the window of  a room on the sixth floor, eye to eye with a seagull,  enjoying a dramatic sunset over the legislature from the plaza in front of the hotel: these are just a few  memories to take away from The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe.

The Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe is an excellent choice for families and an equally good choice for couples on a romantic getaway.  Although romance can't be forced, the conditions are right at Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe: the  view, the simple elegance, privacy,  quiet, and delicious food.  All positioned close to Victoria's many charming restaurants and bars and a quaint town full of history and surprises.
