Alive with activity, the rooftops of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler have become home to a rather unusual guest – almost a million of them in fact. Surrounded by mountains and forests that capture Whistler’s natural beauty, these rooftop hives create a vibrant backdrop for these honeybees and their new home.

The arrival of summer has brought the chance for new life, new ideas, and a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the planet. It’s no secret how rapid and concerning the decline of the honeybee population has been in recent years, and the far-reaching impact the dwindling numbers of these essential pollinators is having on the environment. With that in mind, the mountainside Resort is doing its part to boost the bee population and celebrate sustainable living and tourism by installing new hives for each of the sixteen rooftop bee colonies. Pioneering the program, Sabrina Offers, Director of Residences, states, “This initiative is one of various measures we’re taking on property to ensure we’re committing ourselves towards a more sustainable future – for our environment, for the local community, and for our guests.”

The Resort will be buzzing every Friday from 4:00 to 5:30 pm with Meet Our Resident Queen Bee, allowing guests to join the expert apiarist for a demonstration, giving them the occasion to learn more about the initiative. Launching on July 8, 2024 is the private Beekeeping Experience, allowing guests to immerse themselves with this educational two-hour session where they learn about the importance of global bee health and follow along through in-depth analysis and real time hive monitoring. Guests may take a trip to the hives, located on the rooftop of the Private Residences, and watch the Hotel’s good-tempered new occupants go about their daily business – making honey. Suited up to handle the bees under the guidance of the apiarist, memories are made sweet and golden, and packed to take home with a jar of their very own honey.

On The Menu

The bees have been busy earning their keep, with the freshly harvested (and known for its truly delicious taste), house-made organic honey incorporated into multiple, mouthwatering offerings. Braidwood Tavern’s breakfast menu sees honey drizzled atop the Greek Yoghurt Bowl, with honeycomb adding the most delightful addition to start the day. For the dinner menu, the Spot Prawn Tartare incorporates a mountain honey and chives dressing, alongside Transmountanus caviar and wild herbs. The Lemon – Honey Mousse ends a meal on the sweetest note, with raspberry crémeux and shortbread accompanied by honey gel, lemon curd and honeycomb tuile.

Blue Santorini, the Grecian addition from Tales of the Med Cocktail Menu, combines honey in with Tres Generaciones Blanco Tequila, Cointreau, passion fruit puree, and sea salt foam.
