September 23, 2016

September 22, 2016, VICTORIA, B.C. – The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa, Victoria, owned by Ecoasis Developments LLP, announced it has completed an extensive renovation resulting in the transformation of its 156 guestrooms and 72 suites. The refurbishment at The Westin Bear Mountain comes in advance of a busy month as the resort plays host to the 2016 Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship in late September.

The makeover brings a new look to all guestrooms and suites with new furniture including tables, chairs, desk, lamps and pull-out sofa beds. Guestrooms feature new wall finishing throughout the bedroom, living area and bathrooms. The redesigned bathrooms include a Heavenly Mirror providing optimal light. Headboards for the world-renowned Westin Heavenly® Bed have been updated with built in reading lights. As part of the redesign, technology in the room was upgraded to include bedside USB charging stations, as well as new clock radios with iPhone 5 charging ports. Fully renovated corridors are designed to guide guests more easily.

“We are extremely proud to debut our refreshed guest rooms at The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa,” said Denise Palmer, General Manager. “We are continually working to update and improve the guest experience at the resort to provide world-class accommodation for our guests. Our timing couldn’t be better with the upcoming PGA TOUR Champions event which will bring new worldwide focus to the resort and Vancouver Island.”

This September, The Westin Bear Mountain will play host to the 2016 Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship. This is an official event on PGA Champions TOUR featuring the world’s premier golfers aged 50 and older competing for a US$ 2.5 million purse. The event will be held on the Mountain Course, one of two 18 hole Nicklaus Design golf courses at the resort. The tournament featuring PGA players such as Vijay Singh and Colin Montgomerie will take place September 19-25, 2016.

After the professionals leave there will still be plenty of time for golf at The Westin Bear Mountain. The comfortable climate makes it an ideal setting for golf all winter long. Guests can experience either of the Nicklaus Design golf courses when booking the Stay & Play package. As a part of the offer, guests will enjoy one-night of accommodation, one round of golf for two on the Valley Course or Mountain Course (the Mountain Course is available for an additional $50 plus taxes per person). The offer is available based on double occupancy and availability at the time of booking. To book, please visit:

The resort has partnerships with Cycling Canada and Golf Canada and is the high performance training centre for the Canadian National Mountain Bike Team.
