I have had the pleasure to stay at Sonora Resort last week and I cannot find the words that would be worthy. The location, the amenities, the accommodations, the activities, the food , and I have to single out the staff ! They truly ADD to the overall experience. It is not a cheap trip but worth every penny.

Get a front row seat to one of coastal BC's most abundant and active areas for wildlife of all kinds. The resort is top drawer for its staff, facilities and variety of activities. Staff are particularly friendly, engaging and knowledgeable about the area and its natural wonders. Stayed five nights and there was never a dull moment.

We stayed at Sonora Resort for 7 nights the first week of September. The location is breathtaking. The rooms are well-appointed and the common areas are beautifully decorated and maintained. My one complaint about this property is a general theme of “details.” As anyone who has been a guest at a Relais and Chateaux property is aware, the experience is... More

The adventure starts with our arrival as it's not easy to get to this island. We arrived via helicopter and were met by friendly, fabulous staff who escorted us to check-in while our bags were delivered to our room. After introductions, a snack and cocktail we went to our room. Very spacious, great views and of course binoculars to view... More

Don't even think about money here. This was built by and belongs to a billionaire and you are treated as he would be. The rates include 3 meals unlimited top-chef dining in a casual atmosphere. The property is beautifully landscaped, a la Butchard Gardens. We were there for a week and didn't have enough time to cover all the activities... More

Sent my daughter and new son-in-law on their honeymoon here at the end of July. They just loved it! Gorgeous scenery, great food and they really enjoyed the excursions. They took a sea plane in from Seattle which they said was awesome. Hopefully my husband and I will be able to try this resort out some time!

Sonora is a truly magical place that doesn't dissapoint. From the greeting at the heli terminal to the dock staff at the resort, every person makes you feel special. We fished with Ed and Kyle, and both guides were excellent. Kyle was to guide us fly fishing at the Phillips River and due to the amount of rain, the river... More

If you can , you must experience Sonora ...a stunningly beautiful setting, with wild nature all around and the service and staff so helpful...we were made to feel special but without too much fuss...our highlight was the grizzly bear tour with First Nation guides who were excellent and we were lucky enough to see many bears in their natural habitat...
