Poet’s Cove Resort & Spa

Known as the place “Where Inspiration Lives”, Poet’s Cove Resort & Spa is situated in a secluded cove on British Columbia’s Pender Island. The picturesque location is matched only by quality of the accommodations and onsite amenities, which include a top-ranked marina, three onsite restaurants, a full-service spa and three types of accommodations: villas, cottages and lodge rooms. Recipient of numerous awards and recognition from travel publications, Poet’s Cove is especially renowned as a wedding destination, offering one of the province’s most beautiful settings for the occasion.

A Spectacular Setting

The secluded island location and pristine wilderness setting make Poet’s Cove Resort & Spa one of BC’s most distinctive and peaceful destinations. Surrounded by the rolling farmland, lakes, woods and marine parks of Pender Island in the Southern Gulf Islands, the resort is far from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet easily accessible from both Vancouver and Victoria. Although the resort operates primarily as a summer destination, it is open all year round, and equally suited to a cozy winter getaway.

A Top BC Wedding Destination

Whether it’s a grand reception in our Seaglass Ballroom or an intimate ceremony on the beach, Poet’s Cove Resort & Spa is here to help bring your wedding vision to life. Our elegant wedding facilities, first-class onsite catering, professional wedding staff and gorgeous backdrop make our resort one of BC’s top wedding destinations all year round.

Relax and Rejuvenate

At the onsite Surrus Spa, your needs come first. The spa professionals at Surrus offer a range of services including specialty massage, waxing & tinting, body treatments, manicure & pedicure, skin care, and bridal packages. The spa’s 3500 sq. ft. oasis also includes a steam cave and hot tub along with a range of top quality spa products for purchase.

Outstanding Cuisine

Serving cuisine inspired by the resort’s Gulf Islands location, with ingredients sourced from local, West Coast farms, our onsite Aurora Restaurant offers a first-class dining experience with seasonal menus and an exceptional wine list. Our resort also offers casual waterfront dining at Syren’s Bistro & Lounge and coffee and snacks at Moorings Café.
