“Spectacular Stay! I returned to the Bay of Many Coves after 13 years and it was as wonderful as I remembered. It’s one of those places, if you are lucky enough to stay there, you think, I want to come back some day.”

“Fantastic secluded location! From the moment we got off the water taxi at Bay of Many Coves we knew we’d found somewhere special. The staff greeted us by name and then took us on a tour of this secluded slice of paradise! The staff are the real gems of the place though. Nothing was too much trouble and they seemed to know what we wanted before we asked.”

“My wife and I stayed here on 2 separate trips. The resort was beautiful, quiet and offered excellent food and services. The restaurant offered a gourmet tasting menu which changed every night. Rianne and her staff were super helpful and offered prompt and attentive services. We really cannot think of anything negative to say on both trips, other than the fact that Steve the Cat was elusive and difficult to find in our recent trip!”

“Spectacular Experience- Every day was glorious. Each meal was incredible. Best beef dish I've ever had. It's a real treat to take the boat taxis back and forth from/to trail heads and lodge. Nice to relax in hot tub overlooking Sound after treks. The staff makes the experience very special. Highly recommend.”

“An awesome resort- The staff was very friendly and attentive. Rianne and Chloe helped make our stay special. The cuisine was outstanding along with the service. A great place to relax and decompress on busy trip to New Zealand and Australia.
