There is also the Absolute Spa offering a whole range of treatments to effectively combat jetlag – perfect for those who want to be on top form right from the word ‘go’! Dining is also a treat at the Fairmont with the award-winning Globe at YVR Restaurant not to be missed. The only restaurant in Richmond to specialise in Pacific Northwest Cuisine, dishes incorporate fresh local ingredients accompanied by fine wines from British Columbia’s famous Okanagan Valley. What’s more, children 5 and under eat FREE in the restaurant with children between 6 and 12 half price! The Jetside Bar is also very popular and make sure you indulge in afternoon tea, a great tradition at the Fairmont with specially-blended teas and a delicious variety of house-made cakes and pastries.
