February | March 2018 | Ignitemag.ca | 21 Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge JASPER, ALBERTA Rustic elegance—that's the 103-year-old Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, which just complet- ed a three-year, $16-million restoration. Teeing Off: So in harmony with its surroundings is this classic Stanley Thompson design that the golf course appears to have been more discov- ered than designed. Mountain views abound, including the signature ninth, a downhill par-3 entitled Cleopatra. Meet & Greet: Up to 600 can be accommodated, although mountain, lake and golf course views can be a tad distracting during meetings. Don't Miss This: There's no shortage of winter and summer distractions, but the experience of sitting in the heated outdoor pool as neon-green fingers of Northern Lights wave in the deep dark night is unparalleled. fairmont.com/jasper Fairmont Scott sdale Princess SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA Planted amid the serene Sonoran Desert, the AAA Five Diamond Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is renowned for its four top-ranked restaurants and one of the best tequila bars in the country. Teeing Off: With two recently renovated championship courses, TPC Scottsdale is home to the most insane event in pro golf, the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Meet & Greet: The largest meetings facility in the entire Fairmont portfolio, with a whopping 150,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art event space. Don't Miss This: One of the best spas in the US offers aerial yoga and a waterfall grotto, but try Desert Wolf Tours' thrilling ATV adventure, which includes learning to safely operate an M4 semi- automatic rifle and Glock 17 handgun. fairmont.com/scottsdale Slieve Donard Resor t & Spa NEWCASTLE, NORTHERN IRELAND Nestled at the foot of the Mourne Mountains, with an adjacent windswept beach on the Irish Sea, there are views aplenty at the luxurious, Victorian-styled resort. Teeing Off: You can walk out the back door of the hotel to world premier course, Royal County Down, a heavenly meeting of sea, mountains and duneland. Meet & Greet: Nine conference and banquet suites include the new Centenary Centre, and there's nothing like dining fireside at the enchanting Percy French restaurant and bar. Don't Miss This: It's worth a walk through the town of Newcastle and to Tollymore Forest Park, but it's hard to resist Winterfell Tours' visit to several Game of Thrones locations nearby. hastingshotels.com/slieve-donard-resort-and-spa/ Slieve Donard Resort & Spa Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Fairmont Scottsdale Princess good to know
