I wanted to plan a romantic getaway for my boyfriend's birthday this year, and I'm so happy we stayed at Viamede.
I booked an Academy package, that included a shuttle ride to and from Union (took the hassle out of getting to and from), complimentary breakfasts, lunch and dinner vouchers, two night stay and a Photography workshop. It was a fantastic value.
Our room was much more than what we were expecting - - very large and clean, and the fireplace gave the evenings a perfect ambiance. We stayed during the off season, so there weren't as many seasonal activities. We really enjoyed the trails and boardgames. It was a really nice way to disconnect from city life.
We also dined at Mount Julian for a 7-dish tastings menu with wine pairings. This was by far the highlight of the stay, the food was fantastic and highlighted many local ingredients. The dining room itself had a lot of character.
Lastly, the staff we dealt with were very friendly and accommodating - - we had a bad habit of walking into the dining room 20 mins after the kitchen closed, but they happily reopened for us. A special shout out to Dani (who helped booked the package and greeted us when we arrived) and Ben (who served us at Mount Julian). It was a perfect weekend, and I know we will be staying here again.
