One of the truly great experiences everyone has to try at least once. To be able to stay at this stunning destination and be treated like royalty by some of the happiest and engaging staff I've ever met was very special. We were there in September and had some awesome wildlife experiences. Bears smashing salmon, orcas chasing seals, bald eagles,...

From the moment you arrive, you're treated like family. Within a day, all the staff knew our names, our food & wine preferences and what we liked to do. Special meals were prepared for us and the staff were very attentive - we were really treated like royalty! The food was fantastic as were the rooms, views, fishing and spa!...

I've been meaning to write this since coming back from our wonderful holiday in beautiful British Columbia at the beginning of September, but life takes over and I've only just got round to it.

Came for a few days at the beginning of October to do the Bear Tours and enjoy the beautiful BC scenery. I really can't speak highly enough about this resort. The service was absolutely fantastic. The resort itself is modern, nicely decorated and truly set in the most amazing location possible. From the time we arrived via sea plane we...

I would firstly take little notice of Wendy from Nebraska's review as she is clearly very difficult to please. We also visited in September (end of season) and the staff were a delight. Totally focused on us from the minute we arrived to moment we left. Nothing was left to chance. The location is completely stunning and so exclusive. The...
