Now, let's talk about those pools. Nestled on the shores of the Salish Sea, the Oak Bay Beach Hotel boasts not one, not two, but three heated outdoor pools offering panoramic oceanfront views that will leave you breathless—no matter the season.

Open daily, the pools are the ultimate relaxation spot, complete with water and towel service, plush lounge chairs with your name on them, and even a eucalyptus-infused sauna for that extra touch of zen.
