Azuridge Estate Hotel was built in 1997 as a 13 acre private oasis in the gorgeous foothills west of Calgary but was converted to a hotel in 2012. The location is quite secluded and peaceful; it’s the perfect place to take in the fresh air and majestic views while still enjoying all the comforts of home, and more. Built across from the Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club, the estate is popular with golfers (with complimentary golfing available during a stay at Azuridge), hikers, skiers (both alpine and cross country), and those wanting to take part in the world class equestrian events at nearby Spruce Meadows. The facility offers 13 comfortable suites, gorgeous manicured outdoor spaces, a wedding planner, butler service, and several outstanding dining options.
Executive Chef Yoshi Chubachi oversees main dining at the Opal Restaurant (including a personalized Chef’s Table experience), as well as dining the three Azuridge patios and the ‘Overnight Menu’. While the dining experience in the Opal restaurant is…opulent, the patios are much more casual and relaxed. Each has a slightly different menu, but all have stunning views of the estate and surrounding forests.
This summer, the Gazebo Patio menu features ‘Burgers ‘n’ Beer Nights’ on weekday evenings from 6-10 pm. For $35 per person you order a choice of five burgers (Brant Lake Wagyu, local lamb, chicken, salmon, and portobello mushroom), two sides (truffle mac ‘n’ cheese, Caesar salad, Fruit Salad, or the artisan baby mixed salad), and beer. Sit back , enjoy the view, and listen to the tunes from the on site DJ. If dancing isn’t your thing, there are assorted lawn games to play on the well manicured lawns.
