Travel Nav

Enveloped in lush forest atop a cascading 268ft waterfall, today’s escape is to an iconic, distinctly Northwest retreat.

See for yourself: a one-night stay for two, Sunday to Thursday ($166) or Friday night ($225) at the Salish Lodge & Spa, plus a $25 breakfast credit, a $50 spa voucher and 20% off additional nights.

Bid farewell to work and settle in high above the Snoqualmie Falls, half an hour outside of Seattle, where the cosy confines of your deluxe room — wood-burning fireplace, oversize two-person whirlpool tub, 320-thread-count sheets and plush pillows — await your arrival.

"The bathtub in the room was wonderful and the wood-burning fireplace was so relaxing," says one TripAdvisee. Says another, "This place is just so warm, cozy, and luxurious. I felt the weight lift off my shoulders as soon as I entered the front door."

Lest you be tempted to snuggle up all day and take in the marvellous view of the grounds from your window, do not forget that adventure beckons just outside. In summer, play a round of golf at the Tournament Players Course at Snoqualmie Ridge, or discover the region on a hiking, mountain biking or fly fishing trip.

Before your muscles start to grumble, schedule an appointment for a signature Tranquillity massage or Salish Signature Rosemary and Mint Body Scrub, replete with natural minerals from the Pacific Northwest, at the resort's luxurious and award-wining spa.

Tuck into a lavish meal at the Dining Room, which OpenTable diners give 4.5 stars for its exquisite cuisine (think locally sourced, seasonal ingredients) and breathtaking views, not to mention its extensive wine list, winner of Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence every year since 1980.

If you cannot bear the thought of leaving (we don’t blame you), book an extra night for 20% off. With the world laid out before you, it will not be hard to fill the extra hours with fun.
