About Tigh Na Mara

Rustic charm and cozy comfort go hand in hand at Tigh Na Mara Seaside Resort, located oceanfront in 22 acres of forest, with sweeping views and great beaches for swimming or contemplative walks after yoga. 

Yoga & Wellness 

Cozy log cabins in the forrest 

Sleep in a rustic, two-bedroom cottage surrounded by trees, warmed by a wood burning fireplace just a few steps away from the ocean.

Three people per roomy 2-bedroom cabin  — twin-share room + queen/single room —  and great kitchen and cozy atmosphere

This is a retreat for anyone who loves to wear sweatpants, wool socks and who just likes to chillax with new and old 

friends in a beautiful setting with some AWESOME yoga too.

Parksville has the warmest ocean in Canada, so if you're up for it, you might want to take a dip. Or enjoy the hotel's indoor pool and hot tub and sauna in the pool house.

If you feel like treating yourself, you're in luck! Tigh Na Mara's Grotto Spa is voted #1 in the country. 

Just call in advance to book your spot. (Spa services and grotto not included in the retreat.)

Sandy beaches for miles and miles...

There's so many beautiful parks nearby. 

Plan a hike to some old-growth forests or just explore the long stretches of sandy beach.

Try to be as unscheduled as you can.

Fall is a great time to renew, reboot and connect to nature.
