To accommodate those who want to escape the madness of everyday life, Pan Pacific is offering a value-added Spa or Dine Getaway Package. The offer starts at only CAD$199 (or USD$190) per night for accommodations and a CAD$100 credit towards spa treatments at Vital Spirit Spa or dinner for two at one of a selection of destination restaurants. (Note: Guests are essentially paying CAD$99 per room night). So, it’s all a question of choice. Not only do guests have the option to choose where they apply their CAD$100 credit, but they can also choose between one of Pan Pacific’s two award-winning properties, namely the Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre that anchors the world-class, pedestrian Whistler Village or the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside, which is nestled at the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.

For the very best value, Pan Pacific Whistler offers the Advance Purchase Offer, whereby guests receive 20% off the best available rates for pre-paid reservations booked a minimum 14 days out. These unbelievable rates, start from only CAD$112 (or USD$107) for a Valley View Studio Suite at Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside. However, other suite options are available for both of Pan Pacific’s two properties, including One- and Two-Bedroom Suites and Penthouse Suites.

For those in a “family way,” or for small groups of friends, Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside provides complimentary use of the 7th floor, 650-sq. ft. Pacific Suite as a gathering place where the guests can enjoy living-room style accommodations for socializing, so their guest rooms remain private. Available for pre-arranged use to groups who book a minimum 10 room nights, the “gathering place” is available from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and features a large TV and DVD for movie watching, fireplace, vaulted ceilings, beautiful views and comfy couches.
