Honeymoon Week: Canada

Continuing right along with Honeymoon Week, we’re heading to British Columbia, Canada for another featured spot.

Rock Water Secret Cove Resort

Rockwater Resort
Rock Water Secret Cove Resort sits along the Sunshine Coast in Halfmoon Bay. The hotel has 4 different room types: Tenthouse suites, Oceanside Cabins, Ocean View Rooms and Poolside Rooms. The area is calm enough that you can simply sit back and relax or you can do fun activities like golfing, swimming, kayaking, or sailing.

  • Tenthouse Suites are private and include a scenic hydrotherapy tub, rain forest shower, fireplace, and radiant floor heating. It also has a private veranda with ocean views.
  • Oceanside cabins are original hunting cabins that have been refurbished for ultimate relaxation.
  • There’s yoga, hiking, biking and shuttle service to Thornmanby Island
  • The spa here takes you to the “Spa Without Walls” in the summer, where you’ll get massages with outside ocean breezes and the sound of rolling waves.
  • From October through mid-May, spa treatments are inside the Winter Spa Tent, with a roaring fireplace in the background.
  • Hotel features an outdoor heated pool
  • The on-site restaurant features fine dining and many locally produced foods

Details

  • Location: Head north of Vancouver on the 99, take the Horseshoe Bay Ferry to the 101 and head to Halfmoon Bay. If you prefer to fly instead of drive, there’s an option for that as well.
  • Best for: Couples seeking to incorporate a destination wedding into their honeymoon, lovers of the outdoors. You can even bring family members or pets in some cabin or lodge rooms. Vancouver BC Travel Guide lists this as a welcoming place for gay couples.
  • Not For: People who dislike the outdoors.
  • Notable: You’ll want to convert your money to Canadian currency but don’t worry, as of right now the exchange rates are nearly identical. Ask for tents other than 59 or 60 if you are seeking privacy on your honeymoon.
  • Budget: Mid-range. You can expect to pay close to $3000 for a week in the treetop tents and less for other rooms. That $3000 includes a rental car and airfare for two from LAX and is just an estimate.
  • Time to Visit: The summer here is peak season, with beaches and parks open. April through September will be the best times to visit, with longer days, warmer nights and more activities nearby. Rates increase June 10 for the high season and go down again on September 11 so the best bang for your buck would be April 1-June 10 or September 11-October 9.
  • Time to Avoid: Winter can be wet, cold and dreary in this area. Fall too can bring about lots of rain, especially after October. Days are also shorter here in Canada in the winter months so plan accordingly.
