Welcome to Poets Cove, the premier luxury resort in the Southern Gulf Islands. Part of the uniquely West Coast Gulf Island archipelago, Poets Cove on Pender Island is the perfect escape. Just a short ferry, boat or seaplane ride away from Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle, our small island oasis set in the secluded Bedwell Harbour bay feels a million miles away.

Pamper yourself with a specialty treatment at our onsite Susurrus Spa, enjoy outdoor activities on the sparkling water from our private marina, or simply relax in your private cottage, villa or lodge accommodations for a rejuvenating west coast island experience. It’s never to soon to reserve your place in paradise.


  • “We were traveling through the Gulf Islands in late August and my girlfriend and I decided to book in for a 2 night stay at Poets Cove. We were blown away with the amazing views and facilities as soon as we arrived. The Villa we rented was beautiful and it was one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in.”

  • “I’m reviewing this resort on behalf of my elderly parents, ages 88 and 89, who enjoyed a wonderful weekend there recently. Here is what they told me: ‘Everything was just perfect for us. The staff treated us so well and looked after our every need. They were so attentive and kind. Our room was spacious, clean and lovely, with our own balcony overlooking the waterfront.’

  • “The venue was stunning, [I’m] still getting praises from our guests about the location and the resort’s grounds and amenities. I can’t speak enough about the consistent effort put forth from the staff to keep all our guest happy…My wife planned our wedding down to the last detail, they made it happen.”

  • “Our family gathered from across the country and thoroughly enjoyed a long week end wedding at Poet’s cove. Our 3 bedroom villa with 4 washrooms and full kitchen was great for a big family. The setting was magnificent over looking the water and next to a water fall.”

  • “Attended a wedding here and stayed in the resort. Beautiful venue, scenic, and relaxing - couldn't have picked a better place for a wedding. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the view of the cove was stunning.”
