The Digby Pines Resort in Nova Scotia

Stay in style at Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa

I feel a little transported back to the 1929s. I almost expected Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, the star couple from The Great Gatsby, to turn the corner as we drove up the wide driveway to the Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa in the town of the same name in Nova Scotia last September. The large luxury hotel appears stately in the midst of its spacious and well-kept gardens, and it has a bit of the flair of the "Roaring Twenties" with their lightness of being. Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer" keeps ringing in my ears. Somehow this all fits here. And actually this is no wonder, since the luxury hotel was built in XNUMX in the style of a Norman chateau. In those days, wealthy families would spend their entire summer vacations in fashionable resorts like this one, and that spirit still pervades the hotel today.

The Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa - the grand hotel of luxury hotels in Nova Scotia

Today, the Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa is owned by the Province of Nova Scotia, which does a wonderful job of maintaining the hotel's atmosphere while making sure that a modern visitor feels comfortable there. In the imposing entrance hall you are greeted by a large lobby with many comfortable wing chairs, which are placed in cozy seating groups on the polished wooden parquet floor in front of the backdrop of white columns with Corinthian capitals - a perfect place to relax after an active day in the fresh air relax with a chat with friends.

The rooms of the luxury hotel are functional, but not overly decorated. Here you can tell a little the age of the hotel, but everything is available, what you need for a pleasant stay, only the furniture looks a bit antiquated.

Large dishes are served three times a day in the Churchill's Room: in the morning there is a sumptuous breakfast buffet with a large selection. Fresh Nova Scotia cuisine with a French touch is served for lunch and dinner. You should reserve your table early because the restaurant is popular with guests, and rightly so, as we think. The Nova Scotia-style meatloaf and the Digby scallops, fresh clams that are caught here just off the coast that we ordered on our evening at the Digby Pines Resort, left nothing to be desired. Neither is the service, which was very attentive and courteous, but not intrusive. A successful dinner in a dignified environment.

Relaxing stay at Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa on Annapolis Bay

The only thing we regretted during our stay at this luxury hotel was that we had not planned a longer stay here. With the extensive spa and wellness facilities in the in-house spa, the beautifully landscaped gardens and the hiking and walking trails in the area you can plan well a multi-day relaxing holiday. There are tennis courts, croquet, shuffleboard or outdoor chess, and there is a fully equipped fitness center where you can have enough of your appetite for dinner. Also golf lovers will feel comfortable here, because the resort has a golf course with 18 hole.

The nicest part of the whole complex is the pool, which is located between the hotel and the Annapolis Bay and in the afternoon you can swim its laps. On hot days, I can hardly imagine anything more relaxing than to cool off in its deep blue water again and again and let it dry on one of the comfortable loungers from the sun. Even in September, this is still possible, as the pool is protected by a glass front from the winds that can blow in from Annapolis Bay.

My conclusion about this hotel: a wonderful place to relax for a few days. You should treat yourself to this time on a tour of Nova Scotia.
