Why We Love This Hotel

- The Sunshine Coast "has an independent, island-like mentality" (Lonely Planet)

- In addition to an on-site spa and restaurant which overlook the marina, the resort has a seasonal infinity pool and offers kayak and paddleboard rentals
On the Sunshine Coast, “the province's most celebrated year-round recreation center” where “the scenery is spectacular” (Frommer’s), Painted Boat Resort offers a waterfront retreat within easy reach of Vancouver day-trippers. Teeming with outdoor adventure, the area's temperate climate allows for all-season hiking, horseback riding, golfing and fishing.
Nestled in the small town of Madeira Park and perched over Pender Harbour, guests will appreciate surprisingly spacious villas with expansive water views from private decks -- boasting their own barbecues. In addition to pleasant finishes like stone fireplaces and soaker tubs, villas also come equipped with full kitchens, separate living and dining areas, and free Wi-Fi.
The on-site spa is a garden oasis; opt for the Spa Garden treatment and gain access to the plunge pool, hot tub with waterfall, dry sauna, and glacial shower. All guests can enjoy a seasonal infinity pool and fitness centre.
The resort's Lagoon Restaurant overlooks the marina and focuses on serving fresh ingredients from the coastal region. The resort is also equipped to provide outdoor activity with kayak and paddleboard rentals on-site.
