We have stayed at some wonderful places over the years and this ranks with the best of them. Obviously, you get what you pay for (if you are lucky) and this is not cheap or particularly easy to get to but it is well worth the effort. The Relais & Chateaux designation insures your investment. Photographing eagles from your balcony, walking the beach, or a visit into Tofino were all highlights as was the Pointe Restaurant. Renting a car on Victoria Island was not as much fun and getting a flat tire on the twisty mountain road on the way back to the airport and driving 50 miles on the temporary spare still didn't diminish the trip. The only place in North America that I have liked as well was Triple Creek Ranch in Montana.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Wickaninnish Inn, a Relais & Chateaux property since 1997, overlooks the Pacific Ocean from a rocky point on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast, near the eclectic town of Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park. Two contemporary cedar buildings, set against a backdrop of ancient rainforest, boast an extensive local art collection (complemented by the neighbouring wood carving shed), and all rooms and suites offer ocean or beach views, gas fireplace, soaker tub and individual balcony. Uncompromising service, including a Clefs d’Or Concierge team, is a standard. The sole resort on Chesterman Beach, Tofino’s longest at 2.5km/1.5mi, the Inn is home to refined West Coast cuisine at The Pointe Restaurant and naturally-inspired treatments at its intimate Ancient Cedars Spa. Tofino’s McDiarmid family welcomes you to this locally owned, world renowned sanctuary offering Rustic Elegance on Nature’s Edge. ... more less
