July 24, 2017 – Manoir Hovey, a five-star luxury resort in the Quebec countryside, has been ranked among the best hotels in the world by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine.

The romantic Relais & Châteaux resort on the shores of Lake Massawippi appears as one of only three Canadian hotels on the list of Top Hotels in the World. The year-round destination also was named the #2 resort in Canada. The winners were recently announced as part of Travel + Leisure’s2017 World’s Best Awards.

“I’m very proud of our entire team and thankful to our guests and the readers of Travel + Leisure for their support,” said Jason Stafford, Manoir Hovey’s managing director.

This year has seen a string of honors and new experiences at the picturesque resort. Travelers can enjoy an immersive activity that includes an overnight stay at a local farm and breeder. They can also feast on new flavors in the renovated Tap Room Pub, which introduced a new bistro menu, as well as a seasonal Sugar Shack concept featuring flavors of maple, as well as birch syrup made from tapping Manoir Hovey trees.

Chef Francis Wolf’s innovative cuisine continues to earn him accolades. He was named Young Talent of the Year 2017 by Gault & Millau in the organization’s first gastronomic guide focusing on Quebec. A part of the Manoir Hovey team since 2002, his bold, terroir-driven cuisine features flavors of the season, from wild mushrooms and other foraged edibles in the summer to free-range poultry and fowl in the fall.

In other news, Manoir Hovey will join the prestigious American Express Fine Resorts & Hotels collection beginning in 2018, which is exclusively for American Express Platinum card holders.

The Manoir Hovey experience includes “snowga” (yoga in the snow) and other unique ways to unwind and make memories in a timeless lakeside setting. An on-site teepee provides a touch of elegant whimsy and is an ideal spot for relaxing with a drink and reliving the adventures of the day. Also offered at Manoir Hovey are kayaking, ice fishing, foraging, tennis and more.
