Timing Is Everything: Versante Hotel is Now Open!

Take a Tour of Richmond, BC’s First Luxury Boutique Hotel

The date we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! Versante Hotel—Richmond’s first luxury boutique property—officially opens today. Just minutes from Vancouver Airport but far from your typical airport hotel, Versante’s intricate design and lavish amenities have been curated to provide our guests with visceral, memorable experiences.

From the moment you enter the lobby, you know you’re somewhere special. Whether it’s the custom pink metallic reception pod, the handcrafted chinoiserie rug by Andy Dixon, or the floor-to-ceiling charcoal sculpture by Marie Khouri, the hotel is a showcase for innovative design and local artistry. Take the grand marble staircase to the mezzanine, where pink pastel unisex washrooms are festooned with bronze lion’s head door knockers and night market-inspired red lanterns. Or pass through a teal custom millwork portal to the guest elevators.

Arriving in one of our 100 guestrooms and suites, you’ll see that no details have been spared. Designed by Vancouver-based CHIL Interior Design, guestrooms come in five bold décor schemes, each evoking a distinct personality. At first, you’ll be drawn to the stunning, ethereal wallcovering of koi fish, a symbol of strength and perseverance in Chinese culture. Step through the sliding doors into the bathroom, and you’ll find a double sink vanity, arched backlit mirrors, a rainforest shower and, in most rooms, a freestanding soaker tub with a view window. View Smart technology allows you to customize window tinting to allow in as much or as little light as you desire.

Here are just a few of the amenities you’ll find in every guestroom:

  • A dedicated mobile app, with contactless service, check-in and room controls
  • Dyson Supersonic hair dryers
  • Red Flower vegan bath amenities scented in Wanderlust
  • TEALEAVES tea products, Nespresso coffee and a fully-stocked mini bar
  • MIRROR™ workout technology in select suites

Next, step outside your guestroom to experience our state-of-the-art, 24-hour fitness studio. Equipped with Peloton bikes, Life Fitness cardio equipment, free weights and other sweat-inducing essentials, the fitness centre will help you stay in tip-top shape during your travels. Keen to take it outside? Visit our rooftop terrace, complete with a saltwater pool, jacuzzi and impressive views of our coastal surroundings. Take to the local trails or pedal your way to Richmond’s urban attractions with our complimentary bike rentals, or kick things up a notch with an e-bike (available at an additional charge).
