Prestige Oceanfront Resort

Sooke, British Columbia View map

About

Prestige Oceanfront Resort is a hotel wedding venue located in Sooke, British Columbia. This oceanside setting boasts a range of features that make it attractive to couples planning their big day. Set in a breath-taking location, the elegance of the building is matched by the views it offers. Suitable for both intimate and extravagant occasions, it can host your journey from the engagement party right through to the ceremony and reception.

Facilities and Capacity

The happy couples can say “I do” under the gazebo. Joined by their loved ones, a sheltered event can take place, led by a chosen celebrant. With space for dozens of guests, everyone can enjoy the romance of the moment as they look out across Sooke Harbour. After the confetti has been sprinkled and applause has rung out, the newlyweds can make their way back down the aisle. Alternatively, an indoor site can be arranged for those who would like to exchange vows away from the elements. This is an ideal option on days when the weather is unsuitable. After the wedding party has departed, photos can be indulged in at the gazebo or around the rest of the beautiful grounds. A short stroll away, a courtyard area is available, complete with lounge furniture and space to relax. This would be ideal for those who would like to appreciate a cocktail in the open air as they await the beginning of the reception revelries. A terrace, lined with palm trees, awaits the pre-dinner festivities.

When the time comes for the all-important meal, the 5,000 square-foot Grand Ballroom makes for a fitting location to savour some delicious cuisine, adult beverages, and likable company. Here, up to 325 people can be accommodated, so it is suitable for hosting an occasion to match this venue’s sprawling size. The ballroom is suitably lit with overhead fixtures, making it warm and inviting. When arranged with round tables and chairs, it is fitting for toasts, speeches, and fine dining.

Services Offered

A variety of features are available for clients to enjoy at Prestige Oceanfront Resort. Event rentals can be provided such as furniture, a dance floor, and audio equipment. For those seeking adventure and activity, whale-watching, fishing, and kayaking can all be enjoyed here. More relaxing engagements include spa treatments and relaxing swims. Accommodation is also available. Many of these tastefully designed, comfortable rooms offer views of the water and provide somewhere relaxing to sleep. Few will be able to deny themselves a chance to experience The Pacific Penthouse—ideal for the married pair. Diverse and delicious cuisine may also be served with adult beverages such as Champagne, beer, wine, and more.

    Perfection!!!!!

    We recently hosted our daughter's wedding at Prestige Oceanfront in Sooke and are still smiling! Couldn't of been better! The setting is ideal and the location superb. Our seventy-eight guests from across Canada and the US just loved the hotel and exploring the gorgeous sea-side town of Sooke. The staff of the hotel just couldn't do enough for everyone to ensure their stay there was enjoyable. Just loved the girls who served the canapés to our guests during the cocktail reception and were amazed with how the serving staff coordinated the plated dinner. Everything was not just delicious but also hot. The events coordinator, Nichola, went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding went smoothly! She was SO great to work with and will always remember her friendly demeanour and helpful assistance! Can recommend the Prestige without hesitation and look forward to staying there again!

    Fantastic venue

    We were completely happy with our choice to hold our wedding at this venue. From the start, Nichola was a great help. She was very personable and took a genuine interest in the wedding and ensuring that the day was successful. Couples were invited to an event early in the year to see the venue decorated for a wedding and with some of the hotels preferred vendors. This was also an opportunity to fine tune the menu and drinks to be served at our wedding. Contact with Nichola was easy and she was always available to answer any questions and the front desk staff were also extremely easy to deal with in terms of booking rooms for guests and amending them as necessary. The morning of the wedding was wet and the hotel was fully prepared to relocate the ceremony to an inside space but recommended that we stick with the outdoors space and we are so glad that we did. The weather cleared over the course of the morning and it was blue sky and sun by the time the ceremony came around. The reception in the ballroom looked amazing and was the perfect space for the size of our wedding (65 guests). We opted for the buffet meal and everyone has commented on how great the food was. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were comfy and the hotel provided a discounted rate for wedding guests. Overall our experience with this venue was excellent and would have not concerns recommending to other couples.

    Absoloutley beautiful venue. Extremely accommodating. Amazing customer service. Great food. Beautiful rooms. Beautiful backdrop for wedding photos. Great venue for a winter wedding because where they do their indoor ceremony is perfect. The wedding coordinator Nichola Warner was extremely helpful and professional. My New Year's Eve wedding was so stress free and went off without a hitch! We will be back every year!

    The best and most efficient vendor we’ve booked so far.

    The venue was amazing! It was love at first sight, and the event coordinator at the venue was very accommodating. They even gave us a room for free for an overnight stay, since we traveled a long distance to see the venue. The pricing was great for such a lovely place.

    Absolutely amazing

    Nichola was so wonderful to work with. She put up with my endless questions and kept me calm when I thought that I was late. The venue is stunning. We knew that this would be our venue when we first seen it. The food was delicious and displayed beautifully. The staff are all wonderful and bent over backwards to make sure that we were happy. We love love love the Prestige!!

    August wedding

    We recently got married at the Sooke Prestige hotel this August. Highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a picturesque wedding with ocean views. Its wonderful that guests can stay in one location and that ceremony/reception can take place there. The one downside is that all food/alcohol must come from the hotel, however having said that, the quality was well worth it. I had a wedding planner and also was in touch with coordinator from the hotel. Everything went very smoothly and was even able to have an outdoor wedding under the gazebo when the weather decided to rain during the ceremony. Overall was a great wedding day

    Excellent wedding experience with Nicky and The Prestige Sooke

    My husband and I have nothing but great things to say about our experience planning our wedding with Nicky and The Prestige Oceanfront Resort Sooke. Nicky's communication was always excellent and very prompt, and the planning process was straightforward and stress-free. We wanted a "one-stop" wedding, and that is what we received. We received many compliments from guests about the food at our wedding, and of course the beautiful venue. I would highly recommend The Prestige Sooke to anyone looking to plan a wedding in the Victoria-area.

    Excellent value and service at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort

    The Prestige Oceanfront Resort was a wonderful place to hold my daughter's recent wedding reception. Nichola Houle did a fine job helping us plan all the details including the food, beverages, decorations, guest accommodations and timelines. All was done professionally and customized to suit our budget. The venue is beautiful and the setting on the Sooke Harbour made for amazing pictures and a very pleasant stay for our out of town guests. Overall excellent value and service.

    We would get divorced just so we could get married here again!

    From the very beginning we had a great experience with this resort. Emails and phone calls were always dealt with quickly and professionally. The price was perfect for our budget. We enjoyed the complementary bridal tasting. Our guests felt welcomed on the day of our wedding.

    We can honestly say our wedding went off without a hitch! The ceremony started right on time. The cocktail hour was served immediately afterwards. The reception started on time and the food and open bar were not delayed which kept our guests content. All of our guests flew in from Ontario and they were so pleased that everything was done in one place and they did not have to worry about driving from one place to the next for a separate ceremony and reception.

    At the end of the night everyone was ecstatic with how amazing our wedding was and the staff dealt with all the clean up, tear down and even packed up my center pieces for me which I picked up the next day.

    They were even able to accommodate a brunch for our guests the next morning and the food was spectacular! Everyone left the resort happy and full.

    Everyone we came into contact with in regards to the staff were absolutely amazing.

    WE LOVE PRESTIGE OCEANFRONT RESORT!!!

    We won't get a divorce in order to remarry here but definitely thinking of vow renewals in 10 years :)

    Thank you for making our wedding day PERFECT :)
