Luxury Tent Getaway: Rock Water Secret Cove Resort
When the glamping trend gained popularity, I couldn’t have been happier. Being able to experience the remote wilderness no longer means having to give up the amenities of luxury travel. Whether it’s a yurt, a cabin, or a “tenthouse suite” – I’m in! Canada tends to be my country of choice for this type of thing (it is one of my top 3 favorite countries in the world 1.Croatia, 2.Canada, and 3. Iceland – so far). Needless to say, I was ecstatic when I found Rock Water Secret Cove Resort on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. It was truly my kind of place. I was able to feed my craving for a rustic wilderness tent adventure, while having all of the comforts of home: a wonderful rain shower, a cozy bed, electricity, robes and slippers, a fireplace, and even WiFi. I could also order meals to be served on my scenic private patio and had a bathtub with a view! Not exactly roughing it, but it is still a tent!
My visit to Rock Water Resort was with my husband and we found it to be quite a tranquil and romantic spot. The resort offers cabins, tenthouses, and hotel rooms. I recommend the tenthouses, which are nestled in the trees on a hillside overlooking the ocean. They are a bit removed from the main lobby and restaurant so you can ensure a peaceful and private experience- with every amenity you will ever need.
Rock Water Secret Cove Resort offers some unique and exciting adventures. Kayaking, hiking, and fishing are among the many fun ways to spend the day. Thormanby Island, which has sandy beaches and a marine park, is just a short water taxi ride from the resort. Yoga classes and spa treatments are offered either overlooking the ocean in the Spa Without Walls or on your private patio.
The evenings were wonderfully relaxing. After reading quietly and watching the sunset, we settled into our cozy warm tent with our fireplace roaring. We poured ourselves a glass of wine, and in the tent found a game box with chess, backgammon, and cards. All bundled up, we set up on our patio with some candles and had a good old-fashioned game night. My favorite! This was followed by a tasty meal delivered to our tent. Dining with a view is also available at the resort’s fantastic seaside restaurant.
