Heard of Sooke? This seaside town on Vancouver Island may not be the Victoria area’s most famous – yet – but it’s certainly one of its most charming. Hosting an annual Fine Arts Festival and boasting proximity to the Olympic Mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and pretty French Beach, it’s a fantastic base for all manner of outdoor adventures: everything from surfing to cycling to scuba diving to zip-lining. And Prestige Oceanfront Resort, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, is a perfect base within Sooke.
The beautiful resort sits directly on the Pacific Ocean and makes getting to the best adventuring spots a breeze. (Sooke Potholes Provincial Park, another popular sight, is just a 15-minute drive.) It’s also set up so that if you’re ever feeling lazy, you’ll still have lots to do. Stay in, and discover a pool, a hot tub, a 24-hour fitness center and a marina. Finish off your day at Vault sports bar or West Coast Grill, itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, to relish carefully prepared dishes and local wines – along with the satisfaction of having discovered one of British Columbia’s best-kept secrets.

West Coast Grill is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner that dishes up breakfasts, lunches and dinners of fresh, carefully prepared dishes, like West Coast chowder and citrus-miso halibut. It features a thoughtfully curated wine menu. You may also elect to visit Vault, the new sports bar (opening April 1).
Discover ocean views and lovely therapies at Le Sooke Spa. Stop by for a massage, facial, body treatment or beauty service: Waxes, manis, pedis and makeup applications are just a few of your choices. Continue your wellness experience at the fitness center, open 24 hours a day.
Set on the seaside, Sooke is a first-class outdoor-adventure destination, with the Olympic Mountains, beaches, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and even rainforest terrain. Zip lining, kayaking, hiking, surfing and seasonal whale-watching are some of the many popular pastimes in this Vancouver Island resort town, also known for its annual fine-arts show. Downtown Victoria is roughly 20 miles away, for more culture and spectacular scenery, and if you stick around, there are a pool, hot tub and marina at the waterfront resort.
How to Get There
To start off we purchased our stay at a silent auction and looking forward to the stay. We’d just gotten married 10 days previous and because of our business it was a one night getaway. Jokingly it was our short honeymoon/ Jacob at the front desk was very professional and helpful throughout and giving directions to local things to do. One of which was Zip Lining which we did the next day. Our accommodation was terrific and our walk to Whiffin Spit was amazing. We had dinner at the hotel food and service great and live music was a treat. We do a fair bit of traveling and must say this hotel rates high on our list in so many categories. Will definitely revisit and will highly recommend to our friends.
While Sooke was further away then I expected the hotel was in a great setting and the food quality, combined with attentive staff made it worth the drive. The BW vs. Prestige hotels was a bit confusing but it gave me the option to choose which loyalty program I wanted to support
The building is breath taking, very clean, and very friendly staff. The room was nice, nothing super special, except for the shower which was huge with 2 shower heads.
However, we were really looking forward to spending most of our time relaxing in their fire pits, pool, and hot tub. The fire pits weren't working, the pool was really cold, the only thing working fine was the hot tub. The pool area needs a lot of work too. I think for what you pay, you should at least have all the ameinites working alright.
Great place to stay in Sooke. Room was spacious well furnished, comfortable. Staff was excellent. We used this as a base to ride the Galloping Goose trail. We had good meals in The Vault and the West Coast Grill and would recommend both. Everyone was very helpful.
The lobby and grounds are reminiscent of an opulent era and are beautiful. Having said that, the natural setting is relatively undeveloped and has it's own beach, to my amazement. Our room had 14 foot ceilings and the bed was fantastic. This has the best of both worlds, luxury amidst natural pristine beauty on oceanfront with wilderness nearby. By wilderness I mean (seriously) being stalked by a cougar for 30 minutes on a popular well groomed and utilized trail nearby. That was very scary and so we were thankful for the beautiful hotel grounds to hang out on after that.
