The Haven is dedicated to helping people build richer relationships with themselves and others. With a centre on the small, local community of Gabriola Island in BC Canada, their not-for-profit educational organization offers transformational learning experiences in group settings. For over 30 years, The Haven has developed innovative approaches to teaching and learning, challenging thousands to define and shape their lives.
As well as welcoming people to partake in over  programs, The Haven extends an invitation to private guests who are looking for a different type of retreat experience. At The Haven you'll find a calm and natural environment in which to unwind, yet you won't be pampered-in other words, they promise not to put a chocolate on your pillow.
With rooms by quiet coastline waters and rustic cabins tucked away among the trees, you may feel far from the hustle and bustle of city life, even though The Haven is just 20 minutes by ferry from downtown Nanaimo. Their facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, hot tub, gym, children's play area, and games room. Guests can also book a massage or other bodywork.
The Haven invites you to take a walk on beachfront trails, soak in a tub overlooking the water, or just get away to catch up on some reading.
