I stayed at Nectar in January 2020 and what a lovely getaway this was. We went during a bit of a snowstorm, so it was more difficult to get to (definitely needed a car that could drive in the snow) but the added blanket of snow made the property even more breathtakingly beautiful.

Since it was below 0, we could not use the outdoor showers as the pipes would freeze. Actually our indoor shower clogged because of the frozen pipes so we ended up using the shared showers, but Andrea was so accommodating and was even working in our room trying to clear the blockage.

We also couldn't practice in the dome because of the weather, but the lodge so easily converted to a warm space for us to do our morning meditation and yoga practice with the breathtaking backdrop of snow following among the trees. Andrea did a wonderful job of tailoring the practice to our group and all our skill levels.

The breakfast was delicious - we probably had less options because there were not many of us staying at the time (we stayed during the week). On our last day, it was snowing pretty heavily so the chef could not come in and Sat prepared our breakfast.

The cottages...wow. We stayed in the Jade Cottage and everything is so beautifully designed. It had everything we needed (mini fridge, TV, hair dryer, etc.) for a short stay and even with the cold weather we felt so cozy in our cottage.

I also loved the fact there were multiple hikes around the property. It was a privilege to be able to walk through BC nature like it was our own private backyard.

I cannot imagine the amount of work to build (literally) a community like this and am so grateful that this is not too far from my home in Vancouver. I cannot wait to come back!

Nectar on Bowen Island has everything you need to feel truly relaxed. I stayed for two nights during the winter in the Jade Cottage. The cottage was comfortable and spacious with a cool, modern and relaxed vibe. The Onyx Lodge is a gorgeous light filled communal space that's perfect for chilling out. The yoga dome is such a treat to practice in and the classes and teachers were great. I loved how a short hike directly from the property could take you to trails that accessed both sides of the island as well as a nearby lake. The vegan breakfast option was hearty and delicious! Andrea and Sat are wonderful hosts and they have created a beautiful retreat in an amazing location that is peaceful and welcoming.

A place you come to restore, grow, and relax. From the accommodations (absolutely stunning) to the location (an island filled wildlife--orcas included), the staff (extremely kind and generous), and everything that makes Nectar Yoga, we could have not asked for a greater place to call home for a few days. Looking forward to coming back. Highly recommended.

Nectar Yoga is a truly special place, as are the beautiful couple (Andrea and Sat) who created it. From the moment you arrive, you can feel a calm and warmth surround you...and it only gets better the longer you stay! Andrea's yoga classes are excellent, and you'll notice the care that has gone into every detail of the property and your visit. I can't recommend Nectar enough! Andrea has also created some fantastic online offerings...the Yin Deep Dive is DELISH!

I have visited Nectar Yoga Retreat for the first time with my friend, I am sure I will come back again! We stayed in a Jade Cottage and the accommodations were amazing and super comfortable. Everything is super clean and you can find everything you need for the stay in a Cottage. Yoga classes were great! And meditations are superb! I also want to add that breakfast was very good, which only contributed to the perfect begging of the day after the meditation and yoga practice.
I would honestly say that this is a perfect place if you need your mind ( and body) to relax and refresh. Andrea is a wonderful host and she is doing an amazing job =) This place will make you feel welcome at all times. The energy of this place is super friendly and peaceful. Thanks to Andrea and all the wonderful people who made our stay so perfect and relaxing! I will definitely come back =)

Nectar was such a wonderful and relaxing experience. You can tell that the couple running it really put their heart and soul into every detail and that makes the energy of the place special. The quality of yoga is superb and diverse, with walking and seated meditations included. The facilities are very clean and neat at all times.

The breakfast provided was fresh and nourishing, served to all guests at the same time for some community building. The downside is they only provide one meal, so you have to venture out into the town for lunch and dinner with is a pro and a con. Not many healthy options.

I recommend getting a massage. 10/10!

Nectar Yoga is a hidden gem, nestled in the heart of Pender Island. A place to relax, reflect and refocus on ones self. Your worries melt away as Nectar Yoga has everything you need during your time on the island. Rain or shine your time spent here will me memorable.

The architecture complements and respects it’s surrounding. The thoughtfulness to create a space that doesn’t harm its borrowed land is amazing. There are eco solutions, systems and natural ingredients all throughout this retreat. The lodge is a beautiful welcoming space with lots of comfortable outdoor seating! The A Frames are so cozy and Bright. Waking up to the sound of rain was the perfect way to start the morning with a good book waiting to be read.

Andrea is a talented yoga instructor, and wonderful host. The Dom is a perfect space to continue your practice and take in the beautiful lush foliage it’s surrounded by.

I hope to come back again to wash off the cities bustle with another nourishing stay. It would be perfect for a solo getaway, girls trip or surprise gift. A small event here would be amazing! I could only imagine how beautiful a wedding would look like in this setting.

We stayed in the "Jade Deluxe Cottage" and the cottage itself was beautiful! It was clean, spacious for two (probably up to four during non-pandemic times), beautifully decorated and situated on the grounds of a tranquil oasis. Andrea, Sarah and Katherine helped make our stay grounding with their kindness, nourishing breakfasts and awesome yoga/meditation sessions. We felt safe and free to explore Bowen Island or hide away in the Onyx lodge (communal space)/cottage to read, journal, and share a birthday memory. With Nectar being a short distance away from the Vancouver, it's a great getaway for people wanting to gather with friends or have alone time. The setting is perfect for connecting within oneself and nature again. It was recommended by a friend (Debbie) who had such an enjoyable time Thank you!

Nectar Yoga Retreat site is a well managed, carefully designed location allowing anyone to ground and reset. Personal needs are taken into consideration and there is a true sense you are valued when there.
Accommodation provided is varied with attention to detail and natural surroundings. The outdoor showers were an asset! It is easy to immerse yourself in quiet solitude or yoga and meditation sessions. I had the pleasure of being there five days which fully allowed the benefit that Nectar can offer.
The varied activities and retreats offered easily meet the needs of someone who wants an escape and cnance to recharge.
I am so impressed with Nectar and will return.

A much needed relaxing retreat! Andrea has put so much thought and intention to create this beautiful space, a peaceful nook in the forest. I loved that you had a view of the forest while practicing yoga in the yoga dome. Each cabin is placed so it feels private and secluded. The cabins are thoughtfully designed and clean, the outdoor shower is a nice touch. My husband and I were celebrating a special day, the staff were caring and thoughtful to make the day even better! It was a memorable stay and will be back
