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. We spent... More

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

My wife decided that she preferred a trip to the Northwest rather than a trip to the Caribbean for our 30th wedding anniversary. After a little research on the Relais and Chateaux website, I narrowed the destination down to Sonora Resort and the Wickanish Inn. Ended up booking 2 nights at the Wick and 3 nights at Sonora. From the... More

We flew over in a helicopter, first time for me. It was a great way to start a very beautiful vacation. This is a all inclusive resort. We shared a house with three other couples. We had the master suite, it was massive, huge closets and bathroom. What a surprise that we got such a nice room. The scenery was... More

My husband surprised me with 4 day weekend away at Sonora Resort in July. We took a seaplane from Seattle to Sonora Island Resort, were greeted at the dock and taken inside for an overview of the resort and a snack. Our room was large with a lovely view over the water. I went to yoga every morning and my... More

My husband and I stayed at Sonora to celebrate our 50th Birthdays and our 10th wedding anniversary. I wanted so much to see grizzly bears in their own habitat.
