Ben Samann, Owner and General Manager, could be described as a bit of a dynamo. With an education in hotel management and a storied family history of entrepreneurialism and restaurant and hotel ownership, it’s no wonder he ended up at Viamede Resort.

His passion for the hotel business is obvious, with an unwavering focus on incredible guest experiences and delivering the best food in the region. Ben purchased Viamede in late 2010 at the young age of 27 and has been making grand changes and wrangling fluffy resort dogs ever since. His favourite words are “golden retriever” and “fun”, and most things at Viamede Resort involve both.

When asked why he chose Viamede over all other available properties in Canada, his response was simply, “The land. This is paradise—no other place comes close.”
