VALCARTIER, Que. — Valcartier Vacation Village recently announced the addition of a four-star hotel and indoor waterpark representing an investment of $65 million and scheduled to open in December 2016.
The five-storey hotel will offer 153 suites, made up of 123 regular suites — including a king bed in a closed room and a large retractable bed in the living room — accommodating up to four people; 23 family suites with two closed rooms; two luxury suites with a closed room, living room, patio and private spa; and five luxury family suites with two closed rooms, a patio and a private spa. The property will house a dormitory that can accommodate groups of up to 60 people in five separate rooms.
In addition, the hotel's mezzanine will be home to a 10,600-square-foot entertainment room offering a large arcade with multiple games and private rooms for children's birthday parties and other group activities; a lounge-style sports bar and restaurant; and gift shop and convenience store.
On the first floor, there will be a 6,000-square-foot spa featuring eight treatment rooms (two double rooms), a steam bath and a Finnish sauna; one hot tub and three ice baths; and an indoor pool with adjoining outdoor pool.
“The idea behind our tourism and recreation complex was born out of a desire to provide an optimal entertainment and accommodation experience to our vacationers, particularly families,” said Ginette Robert, vice-president, sales and marketing. “We anticipate welcoming people from all over Quebec and are also already working with travel agencies and tour operators in Canada, the U.S. and Europe.”
The first of its kind in Quebec, Valcartier Vacation Village's indoor waterpark will cover more than 102,000 square feet and will appeal to families, catering to both kids and adults.
With its Polynesian theme, the 102,450-square-foot indoor waterpark’s amenities include a 4,000-square-foot wave pool; more than 14 slides, with five standing 50 ft.; family pool with water games; multi-activity adventure river; double surf wave; 12 private cabanas; patio restaurant with private rooms for groups.
Opened in 1963, about 20 minutes from Quebec City, Valcartier Vacation Village is a top economic driver in Quebec's tourism and recreation industry.
