Fodor's Review

Just a block from the ferry and local shops, this inviting waterfront retreat on Sturdies Bay, which has both a nice restaurant and great spa, is an ideal spot for a car-free vacation. A yoga suite overlooking a meditation garden, seaside massages, and a mineral flotation bath are among the serenity-inducing highlights. The one-bedroom suites have full kitchens and covered sea-view balconies with jetted tubs, outdoor fireplaces, and barbecue grills. Rooms have hidden massage tables that fold away out of sight. The oceanfront restaurant serves fine locally sourced fare; summer brings al fresco dining and wood-fired pizzas on a Tuscan-style patio. Blackberry vinotherapy massages, wild B.C. seaweed scrubs, vanilla chai latte couples massages, and blueberry-smoothie wraps are among the spa's innovative treatments. Step into the lobby to see the Kunamokst Mural, made up of nearly 200 individual paintings by local and international artists. Smart cars are available on site for exploring the island.
