The Delta Lodge at Kananaskis village is a jewel within the Kananaskis valley. If you're looking to avoid the hustle and bustle of Banff, Canmore or Calgary (or just had enough of the tourist scene), the Delta Lodge offers comfortable accommodations within a majestic, pristine natural setting.
First, Kananaskis Village is a misnomer. The "Village" is the Delta Lodge complete with on-site shops, several restaurants ranging from a cafe to casual pub-style to fine dining. There is an outdoors rental shop and post office on site. Don't expect off-site bistro's, cafes, shops, etc. The closest you'll get to those options is Canmore, some 50 minutes away. However, as a "wilderness" retreat with four-star amenities/activities, the Delta Lodge fits the bill. The Lodge has an excellent indoor pool, weight/cardio room, indoor/outdoor whirlpool, steam room, dry sauna and health spa. Activities range from hiking the multiple trails (novice to extreme, depending on your fitness level), mountain biking (same applies), mountain climbing, canoeing/kayaking and a magnificent pro golf course five minutes away. For those looking to experience the true backcountry, saddle up a horse at the Boundary Ranch for the day or sign up for a 2-5 day excursion. The Boundary Ranch is only 10 minutes from the Delta Lodge and has an on-site restaurant (an alternative to the on-site restaurants at the lodge).
Back to the Delta Lodge. The staff were friendly, courteous and accommodating. No matter who you encountered, they acknowledged your presence with a smile and cordial greeting. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The two comfortable queen beds made for a good sleep. The room was showing some "wear and tear" but this is understandable given the Lodge has been around for a while. Depending on your stay and the weather (24 C - 28 C during our stay), air conditioning is a must especially on the third floor (not all rooms have air). Did dine at the Bighorn Lounge and Woody's Pub. Both served pub-style food. I give the edge to Woody's (very good) over Bighorn (fair, did not meet our expectations). We dined at Grappa's our final night. Everyone had an excellent meal and the wine selection complimented the menu. Expect to spend $$$ - $$$$.
The Delta Lodge is a pet friendly place and very popular with dog owners. Also great place to see different breeds. However, if you are pet free and want accommodations to reflect that, the Lodge has pet free rooms/floors.
Overall, the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis gets "Two Thumbs Up" for service, accommodations, on/off-site activities and amenities all nestled within a pristine, majestic mountain/valley setting. Sit back and mellow or hit the trails till you drop, its all there.
