Sonora Resort, the Ultimate Weekend Getaway from Vancouver

Posted by Ashley Honigman · Mar 11 · in British Columbia · about Luxury

Let me introduce you to Sonora Resort, an award winning Relais & Chateaux and Virtuoso property; where pure luxury wilderness meets adventure.

This is pure raw beauty nestled along the Pacific Coast of BC.

A 50 minute helicopter transfer from Vancouver is the ideal way to arrive at the property….Ah yes, I can get used to this!

Let me tell you, flying over the BC coastal islands is in itself worth the trip; the scenery is breathtaking, stunning in fact, and I can’t imagine a better way to start your vacation.   

Sonora is; unique in the world because of its breathtaking location in the Discovery Islands and its customer-centered approach to hospitality. 

Guests have the opportunity to see an abundance of wildlife in their natural habitat surrounding the island including Grizzly Bears and killer whales – while enjoying luxurious amenities, comfort and gourmet cuisine.   By the way, this is one of the best places in the world to see Grizzlies fishing salmon from the river; it is an experience not to miss if you are in the area from August to October.    

Some highlights include; eco & cultural tours, an interactive golf simulator, a complimentary onsite movie theatre you can rent - includes popcorn and full beverage service, archery facility, pre-packed picnic items, fish packing services, and friendly onsite dogs you can borrow while hiking in the area. 

A short distance away is a beautiful lake where you can rent kayaks and enjoy a nice swim.    

For those looking for a little R& R, escape to Sonora’s Resorts Island Currents Spa with six treatment rooms, hydrotherapy tub and outdoor hot and cold mineral pools. 

For romance travelers – this is the perfect retreat for an intimate Destination Wedding, Elopement or Honeymoon.  There is also a special 3 Night Romance Package  for those looking for a quick getaway from Vancouver (see details below).
