The adventure starts with our arrival as it's not easy to get to this island. We arrived via helicopter and were met by friendly, fabulous staff who escorted us to check-in while our bags were delivered to our room. After introductions, a snack and cocktail we went to our room. Very spacious, great views and of course binoculars to view...

Don't even think about money here. This was built by and belongs to a billionaire and you are treated as he would be. The rates include 3 meals unlimited top-chef dining in a casual atmosphere. The property is beautifully landscaped, a la Butchard Gardens. We were there for a week and didn't have enough time to cover all the activities...

Sent my daughter and new son-in-law on their honeymoon here at the end of July. They just loved it! Gorgeous scenery, great food and they really enjoyed the excursions. They took a sea plane in from Seattle which they said was awesome. Hopefully my husband and I will be able to try this resort out some time!

Sonora is a truly magical place that doesn't dissapoint. From the greeting at the heli terminal to the dock staff at the resort, every person makes you feel special. We fished with Ed and Kyle, and both guides were excellent. Kyle was to guide us fly fishing at the Phillips River and due to the amount of rain, the river...

Can't say enough good things! Travelled August 2016, family trip with 2 adult (19 and 21) children. Booking was easy, and they were very helpful in suggesting and pre booking activities.

A first class wilderness and fishing resort. It was very high end but done simply and very low key. Stunning property and it seems that all of the rooms have amazing views and amenities.
