Naturally Pacific Resort: Vancouver Island’s Best Kept Secret Opening May 2024

Naturally Pacific Resort is set to open its doors in May 2024, offering guests a premier hospitality experience, just moments away from the heart of Campbell River.

Locally and independently owned, Naturally Pacific Resort will welcome those seeking an escape, redefining adventure with genuine service and casual elegance, paired with a wealth of experiences on its doorstep.

“We couldn’t be more excited to unveil Naturally Pacific Resort”, says Owner and Managing Director Amanda Mailman. “Paying homage to my family’s deep Campbell River roots, we are proud to share what we hope will become an iconic Vancouver Island destination resort with our community, and warmly welcome travelers from across the world to enjoy the natural beauty on our doorstep.”

Designed in collaboration with Vancouver-based CHIL Interior Design, Naturally Pacific Resort has 100 guest rooms and suites, with interiors radiating tranquility and sophistication, drawing inspiration from the natural contours of the surrounding forests, shorelines and the elegant topographical lines of the golf course. Pets are welcome with dog washing stations on the third floor and plush co-branded Yeti dog beds for furry guests.

The resort is home to many exceptional facilities, including Carve Kitchen & Meatery, Immersion Spa & Wellness and an indoor pool with floor-to-ceiling windows. Outdoor fire pits with plush seating areas, a sun-drenched pool deck and a hot tub complete the resort, all surrounded by the emerald fairways of Campbell River Golf Club.

Signature restaurant, Carve Kitchen & Meatery, presents a modern interpretation of a classic North American steakhouse. Led by Executive Chef Ryan Watson, the menu is inspired by Vancouver Island farms and fields, supporting local producers wherever possible. Together with talented on-site horticulturalists, the kitchen team is helping to grow a 10,000-square-foot garden, located on the resort, to produce vegetables and herbs to enhance dishes, along with a small apiary, producing honey for cocktails and dressings. The restaurant’s interior design reflects the natural beauty of its surroundings. Elegant natural curves and organic textures create a welcoming atmosphere, while intimate banquette seating ensures a cozy and comfortable dining experience. On the patio, guests can gather around a locally hand-carved, live-edge harvest table, perfect for group celebrations and gatherings.

Immersion Spa & Wellness, located off the hotel’s lobby, offers guests the opportunity to unwind in a custom mineral pool and refresh in Italian-made water therapy showers. The spa provides a range of treatments, from pampering pedicures to Signature Treatment Rituals that blend ancient techniques and aromatic blends to restore balance to mind, body and energy systems.

Adjacent to the resort, Campbell River Golf Club is one of Vancouver Island’s oldest and most renowned golf courses. The 18-hole, par-71 resort-style course was rebuilt from tee to green, with the addition of Velocity Driving Range. This immersive virtual golf experience uses cutting-edge technology from Toptracer – the first in Western Canada to do so – appealing to both beginners and seasoned golfers alike. Social hotspot Velocity Lounge offers innovative cocktails and a menu of shareable dishes perfect for a casual evening with friends, a neighbouring retail store is also available offering a range of lifestyle brands.

Nestled between the picturesque shores of the Salish Sea and the foothills of Strathcona Provincial Park, Campbell River is a destination known for its natural beauty, located on Vancouver Island’s sheltered east coast, the area offers a wide range of activities year-round. From exploring the world under the waves in the famed Discovery Passage to savoring the community’s delicious, artisan culinary offerings like Freyja: A Croissant Story and Shelter Point Distillery, Campbell River has something for everyone. Visitors can enjoy strolling on the endless golden sands of  Saratoga Beach or mountain biking on the many trails at the five Provincial Parks nearby.

With its grand opening just around the corner, Naturally Pacific Resort is poised to redefine adventure and provide an unparalleled hospitality experience in Campbell River. Guests can look forward to immersing themselves in the area’s natural beauty while enjoying the resort’s exceptional facilities and warm, genuine service.
