While many people look to Vancouver Island for winter getaways, the Sunshine Coast offers a more accessible year-round alternative, boasting the same natural beauty as the island without the long trip. In fact, in just a few short hours you could be lounging in your own villa or even enjoying a specialized spa treatment or two…

If you book at Painted Boat Resort, Spa & Marina.

Situated in the small, friendly village of Madeira Park in Pender Harbour, Painted Boat Resort offers Vancouverites that “millions of miles away” feeling, without the travel time. That’s because, in addition to the resort’s onsite amenities, which includes a spa, spa garden, restaurant, marina with canoe and paddleboard rentals, pool and hot tub, Painted Boat Resort, Spa & Marina is located close to everything the Sunshine Coast has to offer.

Known for its exquisite scenery, the region boasts excellent dining, hiking, kayaking, boating and artists tours (to name a few), some of which are located right at Painted Boat Resort’s doorstep. You can view more of what you can see, do and enjoy during your visit HERE.

Something you must do, however, is pay a visit to The SPA at Painted Boat and/or The SPA Serenity Garden, which offer a full menu of luxury spa treatments, each of which utilizes products infused with mineral-rich seaweed and salts. Harvested from the ocean, each product is designed to elevate your mood and strengthen your immune system. A team of trained professionals, including Registered Massage Therapists, provide personalized services with an emphasis on stress relief and overall holistic wellness. Be sure to book your treatment ahead of time, as Painted Boat’s excellent RMT’s get reserved weeks in advance.

Once finished at the spa, relax back in your spacious waterfront villa. All villas at Painted Boat boast views of the Madeira Park lagoons and range from 1160 to 1760 sq ft. Each villa features a patio, personal barbecue, kitchen with granite countertops, and upscale Canadian designed furnishings. Of course, you may not be spending much time cooking in your room…

That’s because no weekend away is complete without some incredible dining! The Lagoon Restaurant at Painted Boat features an elegant menu of West Coast-inspired fare prepared by Executive Chef Frédéric Haute-Labourdette. The restaurant offers panoramic harbour views and complimentary moorage to those wanting to ‘dock n’ dine’ after an afternoon on the water. Painted Boat also offers venues for meetings, corporate sales, and executive, management and team-building retreats. These venues are serviced by the Lagoon Restaurant team, who will create special wedding and catering menus for any event, diet, or appetite. 

Whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway or a quick reprieve from the city, Painted Boat Resort, Spa and Marina on the Sunshine Coast is a quick and easy destination for those hoping to enjoy what truly makes B.C. awesome, just a few hours from home.
