Poets Cove Pender Island Retreat 2 nights

Poets Cove Pender Island Retreat


At Poets Cove Resort & Spa, you'll find well-appointed guest rooms with fireplaces, deep soaker tubs and breezy private balconies with views of Bedwell Harbour. The Aurora Restaurant offers West Coast cuisine made with fresh local ingredients. The resort’s Susurrus Spa offers luxury treatments, a eucalyptus steam cave beneath a waterfall, and an oceanview hot tub. Enjoy the glass-enclosed fitness centre, along with an outdoor pool, tennis courts and more. 

Pender Island is set in the Gulf of Georgia, just north of the American San Juan Islands. It has the best of the great outdoors and indoors – from beaches, wildlife, forests, mountains and splendid views to second hand shops, fairs, crafts, restaurants and wineries. You can enjoy the water and outdoor activities in the summer, revel in the tranquility of a forest walk followed by curling up in front of the fire in the winter, and luxuriate in world-class amenities year-round.


Here's what our customers had to say about Poets Cove Pender Island Retreat...

We enjoyed the trip to Pender Island. Poets Cove is beautiful, our rooms were comfortable and the staff very attentive. The ferry service was excellent.

Deborah S.

  Poets Cove is a lovely place for a relaxing break from everyday routines, with a worthwhile selection of amenities, even in January.
