If you are looking for a great relaxing get-away weekend we can highly recommend the Tuwanek Hotel. My husband and I keep going back since we discovered this place last summer.

It's one of the few places we can really sleep ... the bed is great and we can leave the windows open and not hear traffic or sirens! It's quiet.

They have two large old movie-themed rooms, though our personal favourite is "the African Queen" because it has the most amazing over-sized shower with sprayers that's just wonderful.

The owners, Chris and Krista, always go out of their way to make sure we enjoy the facilities ... including the game and movie room downstairs. The breakfasts are delivered to the room every morning at the time we request, and the sunset from the balcony of the room is spectacular. (I usually bring a really nice bottle of wine to enjoy while watching the tide slowing come in.)

I had a fabulous pedicure at the on-site spa and my husband also indulged in the hot tub and had a massage. So, all in all, a truly relaxing weekend.

At the end of our a 5 day stay at one of the cottages at the Tuwanek hotel we did not want to leave. The location is absolutely beautiful - quiet and peaceful, and not overrun by tourists. The At the Water's Edge Spa at the hotel offered a hot stone massage that was absolutely heavenly. The hosts, Chris and Krista, are super friendly and very helpful. This is the best place to both enjoy the great outdoors (we kayaked, swam, and mountain biked) and be pampered by a first class hotel. The location is remote enough that you feel you have "gotten away from it all"; but, the drive and ferry ride from Vancouver is less than 2 hours so very convenient. It's well worth the trip if you are looking for a quiet and luxurious place to rejuvenate your spirit.

Where do you start. This is the most beautiful place we have stayed at. We spent a week in the Casablanca room and it was fabulous, breakfast in the mornings served to your room was fantastic. The view from our room was worth the price alone but all the extras are what make it all that much better. Thay have a on site spa and my wife is still in heaven. Kayaks, billards room, movie room, hot tub are only a few of the creature comforts. I have done alot of traveling over the years and this is the first time I have written a review for any Hotel/Motel/BB and it will be my last because I have found heaven. To our host Krista and Chris we want to thank you so much for your hospitality and kindness, everyting you suggested was well worth doing. If you need some time to relax and get back to what really matters this is the place for you.

This is a definite must for a romantic get away. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous and over 600 sq. ft. of luxury, including a canopy over the bed, wood fireplace - you can't beat the crackling of a real fire, extremely large en-suite with a large walk-in shower with jets all around you! In the morning we enjoyed a gourmet breakfast brought to our room where you can enjoy it on your own private deck overlooking the ocean, all while remaining in your housecoat! We were also lucky that at the time we were there there was also a school of dolphins swimming in the bay! There are also a number of activities you can choose if you so wish or you can just lounge all day. We rented kayaks right at the hotel and they were brought down for us by our host, Chris. We also enjoyed a hike in the lush forest, also a great place for mountain bikers. In the evening we had a game of pool in the club room and watch a movie all by ourselves in their deluxe surround sound theatre!
We will definitely return with our children next time and perhaps rent out their tree house which is great for families. Our boys love the ocean - combing the beach and diving down and collecting the biggest starfish I have ever seen from dark purple to orange - just amazing! You will definitely enjoy your stay!
