The lovely cabanas are inspired by the eco-resort accommodations of Costa Rica. As such, they ooze luxury through their comfort and simplicity. Each is finely crafted from locally milled western red cedar and Douglas fir. As a result, you’ll smell the sweet scent of these local woods the moment you lift up the cabana’s elegant white curtain.

In the morning the sunlight will spill onto the wood detailing and fill your room with a brilliant golden glow. As fresh forests smells fill the air, the waves will gently crash on the coastline and bring you deep into the beauty of a new day.

Moreover, the artfully structured resort places each cabana in a strategic position on the island, so you’ll have the most awe-inspiring views possible.

Of course, Desolation Sound is also a very popular kayak and boating destination. As such, you should take the opportunity to kayak around the breathtaking shore of the island.

You may also enjoy paddle boarding, snorkeling, hiking, and sunbathing. Moonless nights are also perfect for observing the phenomenon of bioluminescence in the waters. This takes place when millions of minuscule phosphorescent plankton dance beneath the waves like tiny fireflies. Indeed, it is a truly magical and remarkable sight.

Captain George Vancouver first sailed in the area’s waters in 1792. Upon seeing the mysterious seascape so remote and forbidding, he named the isolated region Desolation Sound.
