Fairmont's Luxe Jasper Park Lodge Gets The Bachelor Boost (But Here's How To Stay Nearby For Less)

With its snow-capped mountain views and lush surrounding forests, it's no surprise that Alberta's iconic Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge would serve as the perfect backdrop for an episode of "The Bachelor." Let's be honest: few things say "You're the one" better than a secluded getaway (and hot tub) in one of Canada's most picturesque, sought after destinations.

With a sprawling 700 acres nestled along the shores of Lac Beauvert in Jasper National Park, the luxury resort (operating since 1922) has seen its fair share of celebrities and royalty — from Marilyn Monroe to Queen Elizabeth II. Plus, with more than six thousand reviews on TripAdvisor and dozens of awards heralding it as the best place to stay in Alberta, getting the official "Bachelor treatment" will only add to its legendary status. In fact, the mountain retreat has already started to get some of the Bachelor buzz. Google searches for Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge are already up 3,150%, and queries for Jasper, Canada have risen by over 1,400%.

This phenomenon isn't new — after all, media has long influenced travel trends. Take shows like The White Lotus, which led to a 30% spike in out-of-season bookings for Sicily, or Love Is Blind S6, which drove Google searches for the Dominican Republic and Punta Cana up 700% and 300%, respectively. Commonly referred to as "set-jetting", it even earned itself a spot on Expedia's 2023 Travel Trends Report, with 66% of travelers admitting to being inspired to visit "... a destination after seeing it featured in a show or movie." And there's no doubt travelers are feeling inspired — Google saw a staggering 5,000% increase for "where is the Bachelor this week" in just the first day after the episode aired.

Planning your stay at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

When it comes to living in luxury, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge knows how to deliver. With everything from king suites starting from $330 to private 3-bedroom cabins for around $790 a night, the resort caters to both couples and families looking to get away from it all to soak up some much-needed peace and quiet in nature. 

Don't want to just sit still during your stay? You're in luck! With an on-site fitness center, outdoor running trails, access to Marmot Basin for a dose of skiing, and one of Canada's top-rated golf courses, you'll find plenty of ways to keep busy (and moving) during your visit.

Alternatively, if your budget is looking a little tight, there are plenty of other options that'll still impress and won't make a huge dent in your wallet. From the affordable Maligne Lodge (starting at $94 per night) to the popular Jasper Inn Suites ( $166), the Chateau Jasper ($132), and the Mount Robson Inn ($125), Jasper is brimming with hotels, inns, and small lodges that still boast the same breathtaking views — for a much smaller price tag.

More tips to upgrade your experience

Along with its accommodation and wellness offerings, the resort also has a wide variety of experiences and packages that'll be sure to elevate your stay. Some of these include: their signature "Jasper Romance Package" (which includes nightly accommodation, daily breakfast, in-room bathrobes, and a prosecco welcome gift); the "Jasper Ski for Free" add-on, (which provides two adult ski lift tickets alongside accommodation); and even a family-friendly "Easter Weekend" package that combines accommodation and access to a fun-filled bunny-themed weekend for everyone to enjoy.

Outside of the resort, exploring the best of Jasper National Park is an adventure of its own. From visiting Athabasca Falls and Maligne Canyon to exploring the depths of the Columbia IceField (with tours starting from $226), you'll be sure to capture the essence of Jasper's natural beauty. Alternatively, if you're traveling with the little ones, the popular Jasper Evening Wildlife Tour ($65) is a great way to get up close and personal with the park's wild inhabitants — all from inside the safety of a comfortable tour bus. If you're planning your own Jasper, Canada getaway, however, you may want to book fast — searches for Alberta, Canada flights are already up 110%.
