discovering your authentic self



Reserve your accommodation here

While you are visiting us at Elements & Insights, we invite you to extend your stay and more fully experience the Esquimalt Lagoon — migratory bird sanctuary, historic First Nations site and home to some of the most magnificent urban forest in North America!

Our location offers endless opportunities for relaxation, exploration and enjoyment. You can take in the nearby beach with views of both Mount Baker and the majestic Olympic Mountains, feed the ducks and swans at the lagoon, or delight in a leisurely stroll along old-growth forest walking trails. If you're a history buff, you may be interested in visiting nearby Fort Rodd Hill / Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites and museums. The lighthouse, for example, dates from 1860, and was built by the British back before Vancouver Island was even a part of Canada. And, of course, there is historic Hatley Castle and gardens. Nestled on the adjoining grounds of Royal Roads University, it was designed by renowned architect Samuel Maclure and built for James Dunsmuir in 1908. During the outbreak of World War II, it was actually considered as a possible residence for the Royal Family! All this, and you still haven't even left the lagoon area.

The list of activities are nearly endless with most amenities and attractions, including downtown Victoria's Inner Harbour, all within a 20 min drive.
