Rockwater Secret Cove Resort
Rockwater Secret Cove Resort
Project Type: Real Estate Development
A perfect combination of physical beauty and mindful development, Rockwater touches the soul of all who visit.
A former fishing lodge, the resort was re-launched as Rockwater Secret Cove Resort in 2005. Rockwater offers a natural setting that is serene, simple, personal and comfortable. It is a place for guests to reconnect with themselves, their partners, and nature.
The Sunshine Coast has become a prime location for recreational property. Mild winters, moderate summers and year-round recreational pursuits make it a sought-after resort and recreational destination. Second only to Victoria airport , the Sunshine Coast has the most hours of sunshine of any coastal location in southern B.C.
One of the most important criteria for any resort is ease of access. Because of its popularity, the Sunshine is well serviced by scheduled ferries and daily seaplanes. Rockwater is 30 minutes from Vancouver’s International Airport by scheduled daily seaplanes and only 2 hours by ferry and car from Vancouver.
Due to its shape, the 8 acre site enjoys a disproportionately large shoreline, over 1,500 feet of beautiful rocky coast. It is a totally secluded and serene setting with no visible neighbours and no highway noise. Its own private cove is enclosed by two peninsulas. The east peninsula, where the tenthouses are located, is a pristine home to 1,200 year old trees and beds of rare reindeer lichen.

In addition to its indoor massage and treatment rooms, Rockwater offers guests a unique opportunity to delight all of the senses by enjoying a massage in one of the open, but private, water side cabanas. Waves lapping against rocks make the Spa Without Walls a favourite of clients.
