We came here for a mini honeymoon and stayed three nights. We wanted a romantic, peaceful and restful retreat and found just that Taku. The resort is about an 8 minute drive from the ferry. It just so happened that the owners were there and they personally greeted and welcomed us to the resort. We stayed in one of the... More

We have been going to Taku for six years and every visit has been thoroughly enjoyable. Apart from the absolutely breathtaking environment itself, the "family feel" of this resort is well worth recognizing. When creating Taku, the owners had a true vision of being able to share this spot with others who enjoy the relaxed beauty of the area. The... More

We had a wonderful time during our visit and could not have asked for anything more. I can easily say everyone on the resort team was friendly, helpful, and welcoming at all times. Kudos to the crew! Stayed 2 weeks for a family vacation. There were 3 of us, one was a 12yo. Brought along a 18' fishing boat. We... More

Dear Elaine Your review is greatly appreciated. That's exciting we had a visitor from a town that is possibly the furthest canadian town from us.

Quadra Island is very laid back and casual and Taku has nice rooms and setting. However our room is infested with big black ants- everywhere. A definite bummer. What is worse is the lack of attention to this problem and no apology. I guess we are suppose to go with the flow. I still recommend this as a destination but... More

Dear Guest, We are extremely sorry for not meeting your expectations. Although our suites are located right in nature an experience like yours seldom happens. By now you have hopefully received a personal note from our general manager again expressing how sorry we are about not handling the situation better. We did take action as soon as you notified us...

We rested at Taku for two nights in the way to our sea kayaking vacation with Spirit of the West.

We love Heriot Bay and have stayed several times at the Heriot Bay marina. When we moored there in 2013, there were so many logs in the marina at high tide in the middle of the night, that I was awakened by them knocking against our boat. So this year, we decided to dock at Taku and we're very glad... More

Hello first time guests to Taku, We're so glad you decided to try our marina this year. Since we rebuilt our marina in 2007, we've continued to make adjustments to ensure it is a very secure and safe place to moore. It also helps that Rebecca Spit Provincial Park makes a great shelter from wind and is a beautiful backdrop.... More

Great to have you back again Walt & Pam! I agree, exploring the surrounding islands is spectacular, especially with all of the wild life flying and swimming around. Shortly after your visit we had a few sightings of a pod of 8 orcas. Thank you for your "Awesome" review, Lynden and the Taku crew appreciated it. We look forward to... More

I have visited Taku Resort twice now (previously in August 2013) and both times it has been amazing. The resort is situated in a quiet corner of Heriot Bay with spectacular ocean views. We were also treated to a variety of wildlife sightings including bald eagles, deer, starfish, seals, and even a family of orca whales! Taku has a wide... More

Hello Christa Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You really timed your stay right if you were able to see a family of orcas! It's a somewhat rare magical experience. Paddle boarding looks more tricky than it really is, doesn't it? It's the perfect way to explore Quadra by water. We're so pleased that you've enjoyed... More
