Looking for your next fabulous escape? Azuridge is the perfect place to spend an evening or a weekend, and in just under 40 minutes you can leave behind the all the craziness of downtown Calgary for the rugged scenery of the foothills and some of the best hospitality you can find.
Located in Priddis, Azuridge is a boutique resort with 13 guest suites, each offering a splendid view of evergreens and blue skies as far as the eye can see. While this resort is popular for weddings and conferences, it’s also very ideal for getting away to recharge your batteries. As you drive through the gates and around the impressive driveway, you’ll be stunned by the beautiful architecture that was inspired by structures built during the early days of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The stone and timber give the space a rustic appeal and the floor to ceiling windows allow you to take in the natural beauty that we sometimes forget is so close to home.
If you can stay for the entire weekend, then you have no shortage of notable activities to enjoy nearby. In the winter months you can snowshoe or cross country ski around the grounds or head to one of the many ski hills in the area. In the warmer months, you have Spruce Meadows equestrian facility and the town of Bragg Creek to explore. For the golfer, you have four courses close by, and for guests who are just looking for a day in the sun, you are only 35 kilometres from the picturesque Elbow Falls, a great place to go for a hike or a picnic.
If you’re not in the mood to go very far, you can take advantage of the in-room spa services offered daily. Each suite takes its namesake from a gemstone and as a little tip; if you’re into taking luxurious baths then you’ll want to request the Amethyst or Peridot Suite with the claw foot bathtubs or you can also request the Jacuzzi tubs in the Hematite and Citrine suites.
Azuridge is equipped with a games room, gym, cocktail bar, dining room and several impressive fireplaces that you can enjoy with a book from the library or a nice glass of scotch. Beyond the amazing scenery and hospitality, one of the other main draws to staying here is the food. The culinary team prepares the most creative dishes that you’ll have the pleasure of enjoying at the chef’s table. Chef Yoshi combines his love of French and Asian fare to produce some of the best fusion food you’ll find in the province. One taste of Yoshi’s duck confit with kirsch-poached cherries or stone-grilled Alberta Wagyu beef tenderloin and you’ll understand what all the fuss is about. So much love and attention goes into each dish at Azure Ridge, so don’t be surprised if certain items come served on a handcarved block of ice, like the sorbet that’s served as a palate cleanser between courses.
