Outdoor winter fun, spa pleasures and Fireside Pub enhance an Ontario
GRAVENHURST, ON, Dec. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Famous as a must-play for golfers
from spring through fall, new management has transformed Muskoka's
Taboo Resort into a year-round retreat and is launching its first
winter season in a decade with holiday promotions that would turn even
"When you've got a location like this, 1,000 acres of majestic white
pines, mature red oaks and granite outcroppings along pristine Lake
Muskoka, you want to share its beauty in every season," said new
General Manager Yannis Paravalos, who brings many years of experience
managing resorts in Europe, the Caribbean and North America. "That's
why we have worked to create outdoor recreation and indoor relaxation
that is unparalleled in a natural setting this close to downtown
Checking in, guests will find that about half of Taboo's 85 rooms have
been redesigned by the award-winning Cecconi Simone to create
comfortable and harmonious settings for families and couples. The
spacious rooms are warm and inviting for a cold winter's night, with
gas fireplaces, deep soaking tubs and a breathtaking view of Lake
After a day enjoying diverse recreational activities including
cross-country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, a skating pond and
snowmobiling - or instead of them - guests can let themselves be
pampered in Taboo's new 5,000 square-foot spa.
Inside the Resort's elegant Elements Restaurant, headed by Executive
Chef Andrew Dymond, is a Culinary Theatre where the Chefs are the show
at the horseshoe-shaped dining counter where they prepare a 6 course
meal right before your eyes. It has been complemented by the new
Fireside Pub where guests can enjoy informal dining and cozy activities
such as pool, shuffle board and darts.
To introduce the unique pleasures of Taboo in winter, the resort is
offering its Discover Taboo package -- overnight accommodations for two
and a $50 credit for resort spa services or food and beverage - for
$185 per couple.
The resort is also offering a Taboo New Year's Eve, including overnight
accommodation for two, Fireside Pub buffet dinner or four-course dinner
in Elements Restaurant, with live entertainment, dancing, champagne
toast and a buffet breakfast to refuel in the morning. That package is
$345 per couple for the Fireside Pub dinner, and $395 per couple for
the Elements Restaurant dinner.
"For the last 10 years Taboo has focused mostly on our golfing guests
and warm weather activities, but in Canada we know that many people
believe in embracing snowy activities and with our new winter
amenities, we have something for everyone in the family," said Mr.
Paravalos. "We also have the good fortune to have these amenities in
one of the most beautiful settings in Ontario."
