Ontario’s New Beach Motel has a dreamy rooftop bar and rooms with blue water views (PHOTOS)

This beautiful new vacation spot in Ontario will make you feel like you’re on vacation in the tropics. The Beach Motel is a boutique hotel located in the quaint town of Southampton, about a three-hour drive from Toronto. The venue just opened on March 3 and offers a year-round escape to serenity.

The motel was started by local couple Samantha and Dane Buttenaar, who always wanted to create the ultimate holiday destination that they felt was missing from the Southampton experience. After discovering an old motel for sale on a walk, the couple decided to make their dreams come true and The Beach Motel was born.

Boasting 17 suites, a spa, lounge and rooftop bar, the venue combines luxury service with a laid-back, laid-back tone. With stunning dune-filled beaches just steps away, this is the perfect place to spend your summer days. Many elements of the design were inspired by the couple’s travels, and you’ll find soft tones and minimalist decor, as well as artwork that brings in some of the local culture.

The SandBar is considered “one of the most exciting pieces of equipment”. The rooftop patio overlooks the charming city and features a fireplace, two fire bowls, and chic furniture with Cali vibes. The menu, created by chef Cary McLellan, includes local dishes that can be enjoyed on the rooftop or in the lobby. Although the service is only offered to customers during the busiest seasons, a weekly dinner will soon be launched and the public will also be able to enjoy it.

The courtyard is another unique attribute, and during the summer months you can watch a movie from your balcony and even have popcorn delivered right to your door.
