When you want to drink in the majestic beauty of Whistler, few would argue that one of the best places to do so is from the comfort of a luxury suite at Canada's only AAA Five Diamond property.

Raise your glass, then, for an escape on the rocks you won't soon forget at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler.

You call the shots when you stay for one night ($399) or two ($799) in a strikingly lavish executive suite, with a separate living area, balcony and private fireplace. Garnished with a spa and pool just downstairs, everything you could ever want is at your service.

Guests say, "The staff and rooms and service were perfection — the on-call Benz with driver to whip us around the village made us feel so free to come and go."

Gaze at the intoxicating landscape from the privacy of your suite, and soak in the luxuriously deep tub after a long day of anything from fishing and rafting to golfing and wine tasting.

Host of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the alabaster summits of Whistler Blackcomb are beauteous sights — and an exhilarating downhill trip. Use your two included summer sightseeing lift passes via the Peak 2 Peak Gondola to imbibe the awe-inspiring twin peaks and traverse the 18 hiking and biking trails.

"The... village has enough shops, restaurants, nightlife, and other activities to fill a vacation without ever hitting the slopes," says Fodor's. "In summer, the pace relaxes as the focus shifts to cycling, hiking, golfing and boating, though heli-skiers will still find snow."

Stir things up when you use your included $50 credit to Sidecut restaurant, named one of Canada's top ten new restaurants by Where magazine. Dine on infrared-grilled cuts of tenderloin over a glass of boutique British Columbian wine. The posh dining experience at the resort is impeccable, accompanied by first-class service and rustic, modern décor.

"Sidecut is truly Whistler's premier restaurant," rave OpenTable diners. "I was treated like a king and enjoyed a culinary experience of exquisite ingredients, rubs and cuts of meat."

With such class and refinement laid at your feet, just be sure to order up before it's last call.
