High-end luxury meets pristine west coast wilderness. Intimately stylish, and only accessible by air or sea. A rich reward for a job well done, or a retreat to brainstorm new direction, this secluded paradise allows for meetings that are highly focused and positively unforgettable. Pristine natural surroundings are paired with top-rate, fully equipped modern meeting spaces and gourmet cuisine spotlighting the bounty of the west coast land and water. Between business sessions delegates experience the best of the west: whale-watching, salmon fishing, guided eco-excursions. The challenge isn’t how to entertain your group – it will be how to get them to leave.

Planning Essentials

Get a Good Night's Rest:

When not exploring the outdoors, guests can retreat to well-appointed rooms, multi-room suites and private villas, including the stunning Sea Lion Pointe, a 10,000 square-foot private lodge with five suites, library, billiards room and more. Accommodations live up to the reputation of the Relais and Châteaux properties chosen for their truly unique character.

Stretch your budget in Canada:

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.
