We stayed here for a long weekend, looking for relaxation in a place with a view. We ended up getting much much more. The rooms were beautifully appointed, and we loved that each lodge had two hot tubs for the guests in the building. We also enjoyed the hikes, the spa, the golf simulator, table tennis and the adventure trips.... More

We had the most magical stay at a resort that I have ever had. Your facilities are top notch but what sets you apart is your staff. They are efficient, friendly without being pretentious, and very skilled.

This place exceeded all expectations by 10. I came for fishing with my guide friend. When we checked in I thought I was coming to the Fairmont the service was that good. Only better. The price we paid included all good, whatever we wanted, all alcohol and all use of all the amenities. The room was large with two queens... More

This is an expensive proposition, but very worth the expense. The Resort is tucked away on an idyllic shoreline in the Discovery Islands, and somehow delivers the very best that any traveller could want. Beautiful lodge-style accommodations, a spa/fitness/pool area to rival any five star location, gourmet food (with new daily tasting menus - all included in the resort price),... More

We celebrated our 10-year anniversary last week at Sonora and were so impressed with everything - we can't wait to get back! The staff were so attentive and friendly, the food was delicious, and the natural beauty of the area was so rare and refreshing. We spent hours in their outdoor hot tubs (30 on site), caught an awesome 12... More

I had the pleasure of a business meeting / fishing trip this week and cannot say enough about it. It was by far the best place I'd ever stayed. Service was unbelievable as was the meals, and resort itself. There was not one single thing I saw that they could have improved on. Do yourself a favour and stay here!

A beautiful resort in a spectacular setting. We had a great time fishing, relaxing, and eating! The staff are wonderful and the chef's tasting menus rival anything we've had in fine dining restaurants in Vancouver. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a truly memorable travel experience.

Your experience begins with your trip to Sonora either by floatplane, heli or boat. The scenery is not only stunning but pristine, we even spotted seals in the harbour (Campbell River) where we took our water taxi to get to the Resort. This was a pre-scouting trip for a group that we would be servicing later this year. We had... More

From the moment we were greeted warmly by the pilot at the helicopter terminal in Vancouver we knew this place would be special. The journey began with an amazing 45 minute flight over the BC gulf islands to the resort. The sight seeing is out of this world! The staff at the resort were amazingly helpful and courteous.

My husband and I joined two friends from Chicago in early September to fish and relax. The resort is quietly elegant, with a relaxed, serene charm. The staff is outstanding and they did accommodate every request, even those only thought, not expressed. They were very helpful when the uphill return to our room was a challenge. The food was lovely,... More
