Painted Boat Re­sort Spa and Ma­rina is a vi­brant, coastal chic re­sort lo­cated on Bri­tish Columbia’s Sun­shine Coast.

Of­fer­ing ca­su­ally el­e­gant and spa­cious two bed­room/two bath vil­las - each with a cap­ti­vat­ing wa­ter view from an over­sized pa­tio or deck - guests take plea­sure year-round from well­ness treat­ments in the spa, to a myr­iad of lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing hik­ing, moun­tain bik­ing and kayak­ing right out the front door of the prop­erty. Cre­ative, lo­cally sourced cui­sine is en­joyed at the wa­ter­front restau­rant from early April to late October each year.

Pen­der Har­bour

A funky col­lec­tive of neigh­bor­hoods in­clud­ing Madeira Park (Painted Boat Re­sort’s lo­ca­tion), Gar­den Bay, Klein­dale, Irvines Land­ing and Daniel Point to name a few, Pen­der Har­bour is one of the Sun­shine Coast’s most sought out des­ti­na­tions. Show­cas­ing an eclec­tic ar­ray of ameni­ties from artists’ stu­dios and mu­se­ums, to an­nual in­ter­na­tional jazz and blues fes­ti­vals, and out­door ad­ven­ture trea­sured the world over; this area has long been a draw for boaters. At Painted Boat Re­sort, the knowl­edge­able and of­ten lo­cal, Guest Ser­vices team loves to help de­sign on shore pro­grams for their guests.

Painted Boat Re­sort’s Ma­rina

Painted Boat’s fully-pro­tected deep­wa­ter ma­rina is safe from the worst storms, with the wharf of­fer­ing des­ig­nated moor­age slips rang­ing from 20 to 60 feet for a to­tal of 300 feet of short-term moor­age. The per­fect place to drop an­chor for the day, or bet­ter still, an overnight stay for a day or two - just be sure to make reser­va­tions as space is al­ways in de­mand and sub­ject to avail­abil­ity.

For guests din­ing at the restau­rant or with an ap­point­ment at the spa, day moor-

age is com­pli­men­tary. For guests stay­ing in one of the gor­geous con­tem­po­rary vil­las, the moor­age rate is $1.25 per foot plus GST.

The ma­rina does not pro­vide pub­lic ser­vices such as wash­rooms, show­ers or garbage dis­posal to its ma­rina vis­i­tors, how­ever re­sort features such as the in­fin­ity pool, fit­ness fa­cil­ity, and Spa Gar­den are avail­able for an ad­di­tional daily charge. Ma­rina guests are most wel­come to dine at the restau­rant, or in­dulge in ser­vices at the spa with reser­va­tions, which are sub­ject to avail­abil­ity.
