Tulalip Resort – A Taste of Luxury

Tulalip Resort Casino is an oasis of luxury that is an easy drive from Vancouver, Birch Bay, Bellingham and Seattle. Tulalip Resort has it all: gorgeous hotel rooms; an abundance of excellent restaurantsTspa, a relaxing sanctuary for native-inspired spa treatments; entertainment venues; and a Vegas-style casino. No wonder why Tulalip Resort is considered one of the most premier destinations in Washington state.

We recently had an opportunity for a 24-hour visit at the hotel, in one of the stunning, newly renovated 360 guest rooms. These rooms were beautiful in the past, but now they are magnificent, luxurious and spacious. The king-size bed is so comfortable that we slept very well at Tulalip Resort!

The rooms also feature all kinds of additions such as refrigerators, Smart TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi, LED reading lamps (independent and integrated), no-fog mirrors, plush carpeting, easier-to-use temperature controls, gorgeous art and styling touches that pay tribute to the Tulalip Tribes.

Beautifully crafted paintings and accents are everywhere, above the bed, in a throw cover on the bed, over the desk, on room dividers, on walls throughout the room and in the hallways. Even the bathrooms are roomy, with two sinks, a vanity table and a large shower featuring pretty red tiles. The artwork and the entire room are highlighted with my favorite color combination of reds, blacks and whites.
















A bottle of Côte Bonneville wine was on display in our room, reminding us of our wonderful visit during Taste of Tulalip 2015. The incredible commemorative bottle and plate were created by Mike Gobin, a talented Tulalip artist and master woodcarver whom we had the pleasure to meet at Taste. The unique blend of wine was crafted by the event’s 2015 honorary winemaker, Kerry Shiels of Côte Bonneville, and Tulalip‘s talented sommelier, Tom Thompson. With grapes sourced from DuBrul Vineyard, this stellar wine blends 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Everywhere we looked, we saw an inspiring expression of Tulalip life and history. The Tulalip Tribes are Coast Salish, a culture of which I am familiar after working for Musqueam, Squamish and Tswassen First Nations in my home province of British Columbia. When we stayed at Tulalip Resort, I was deeply reminded of my intense respect and admiration for the proud heritage and skills of the Coast Salish people.
