“Loved the spa house”
Reviewed January 11, 2009

I didn't stay at the hotel, but I did drive up to their spa - twice!
The owners were very friendly & welcoming - they truly care about each person's experience. Sharon (in the spa) was the same - a beautiful warm soul who really pays attention to your needs.
I had a massage and a facial - loved all the products they used.
I will definitely go back on my next trip to Sechelt and have recommended this place to many of my friends - its in a beautiful peaceful location.
And, for people who are busy - the ability to book appts on the website is fantastic.

Tuwanek Hotel takes care of evedrything. Attention to detail and personal service was 10/10. The 'spa house' made me feel pampered and spoiled, Sharon is amazing. I wish everyone had a chance to go here.

I've been back many times to the spa. I send as many people there to bask in the great service and experience.

My husband and I booked 3 nights at the Tuwanek Hotel for a romantic getaway and we were not disappointed! The accommodations are beautiful with many "small touches" that did not go unnoticed. Krista and Chris are the perfect hosts - they are always around if you need anything and offered many suggestions on things to do and places to go. Krista's breakfasts were amazing and were served in our room each morning.

We took advantage of the beautiful spa and received wonderful treatments from Sharon. It was the perfect way to spend our first day. Sharon was able to get both of us into "holiday mode" with her pampering!

We were somewhat concerned when we booked our holiday that we would not find things to do with it being the "off season". With the spa, movie theatre and games room at the hotel and all of the beautiful hiking trails nearby we did not have anything to worry about. Our time at the Tuwanek Hotel was over before we were ready to leave!

The Tuwanek Hotel was the perfect place for a relaxing vacation because Krista and Chris make sure that everything is taken care of. I wish that we could have stayed longer and I am already looking forward to returning as soon as possible.

We booked for 4 days but wished we knew how wonderful this spot was - we could have stayed so much longer. The location is perfect and Chris and Krista have thought of everything. This is not your standard B&B - this is a first class hotel.

We spent several afternoons in the Water's Edge Spa at the hotel. Sharon is a perfect for for the experience that the hosts have created. You must treat yourself to some time in this private spa.

This is a luxurious spot and we would encourage all to try it out.

We visited the Tuwanek Hotel for a weekend getaway last September. Their website hooked us with views of the inviting rooms and scenic location, but the true experience can only be appreciated by staying with these gracious hosts.

Krista cooked up a beautiful breakfast each morning that we enjoyed on our private balcony overlooking the inlet. We had a wonderful massage at the on site spa, then relaxed in bed watching old movies. Complete relaxation!

Chris and Krista feel like old friends and I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone.

We'll be back.

The experience at Tuwanek was absoluely first class. Not only have we been back several times and will continue to visit, we loved the beds so much that they helped us buy are own! Now we can enjoy the same comfort of Tuwanek right in our own home. I would highly recommend checking it out!

This our second trip to the Tuwanek Hotel and this trip was for one week and we brought our daughted along to enjoy the experience. The facilities and the Hosts are first class. The location is best described as a world all of it own with beauty and tranquility. There is alot of activities to do in the local area and one of the best locations to retreat to for relaxation.
The spa on site is a first class facility with a massuse that is very professional and experience in her craft, Looking forward to our next trip. The facility also has a dog that is so dear and theraputic that we miss her already and look forward to spending time with Lexie on our next trip.

Best Regards till next visit
