Welcome to the Tuwanek Hotel and At the Waters Edge Spa

This luxurious waterfront destination is located on the picturesque Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.  Imagine a majestic 40 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. Then a short leisurely scenic drive which features nature interspersed with ocean views.  Situated slightly north of Sechelt, the Tuwanek Hotel is set within a quaint rural landscape reminiscent of an era when life was simpler.  Whether you seek romance, an elegant environment, the opportunity to commune with nature, just yearn for breathtaking scenery to nurture waning spirits or relax at the spa… this jewel awaits treasure hunters of all kinds!

The Tuwanek Hotel is more like an old world, rustic Inn than a hotel.  West-Coast style shingled siding compliments stained maroon planks and cream colour trim.  In summer months, a blooming and fragrant English style garden greets guests.  The Inn sits right at the ocean’s edge on a historical piece of property, now attractively terraced. Stunning views and points of interest catch the eye from every direction.  Owner, Donna Patrick is a delight in presenting guests with a casual relaxed environment.  People “Come as Guests and Return as Friends.”  

Luxurious Amenities include spacious, themed celebrity styled suites reminiscent of the old classic movies. Each imaginative suite is individually and appropriately named for its distinct, sophisticated style.  The African Queen, Casablanca and Sunset Beach Suite are each tastefully decorated with king and queen size canopied beds, fireplaces and claw foot tubs.   The ambiance is dreamy, romantic, yet still appeals to both genders.  Suites spill over onto private verandas.  Each are picture perfect for soaking up the serene setting and ocean views.  Sunsets are simply dazzling and a spectacular vision to behold.

A movie theatre, games room and a small business centre is also located within The Club Room.  Of significance, a full hot two course hot breakfast is included with hotel accommodations, and served in suite.
