Le Bonne Entente
Le Bonne Entente, in Quebec City’s business district, is a resort-style spa hotel. Just 10 kilometres from downtown with access via the hotel’s shuttle service, it feels like a world away from the city. Set in 11 acres of landscaped gardens, outdoor facilities include a heated pool and hot tub with poolside refreshments. Discover the sanctuary of the back court, with comfortable hammocks and outdoor lounge beds, then revive in the gym or take advantage of preferential entry at La Tempête, the golf club next door.
When it’s time to relax, head to the Amerispa for a Shellac mani-pedi, facial or body treatment. Try the Water Garden Body Wrap, which is a soothing cocktail of bamboo, lotus and water lily, or the Grapefruit Granita Exfoliation, with its nourishing blend of shea butter, sugar, grapefruit and eucalyptus essential oils. The Rain Massage combines a muscle rub with the gentle sensation of warm, sprinkling rain, aimed at balancing the nervous system as well as relaxing tense muscles.
You’ll find luxurious beds with pillow-top mattresses in all guest rooms. The château-style “Cocooning” rooms, with a Jacuzzi tub and king-size bed, suit a romantic getaway. The “Espace Terzo” options are ideal for a group weekend vacation, with two double beds and a TV mirror in the spacious bathroom. Expect gastronomic delights in the hotel restaurants. On the brunch menu, you’ll find dishes like classic eggs benedict, lobster salad and signature grilled cheese with Italian tomato confit, noyan cheese, and rosemary ham.
