Luxury Holidays At Wickaninnish Inn

For those in search of the quintessential luxury wilderness lodge, there really is only one place to stay - Wickaninnish Inn, set on Vancouver Island's rocky ocean coastline on Canada’s west coast. Weathered by a constant beating off the Pacific Ocean and backdropped by lush rainforest and a sweeping beach, the greatest allure of this splendid retreat is its temperament - the threat of a brewing storm, complemented by an atmospheric and turbulent coastline. In fact, the inn is a popular base for guests who wish to enjoy winter storm-watching in November - at other times of the year, however, the weather is very pleasant and benign, with warm and dry summers giving way to rainier weather into the autumn.

A wonderful feature of the inn is the expansive Pacific Ocean or Chesterman Beach views from every guest room and suite, as well as from the spa, restaurant and cafe, with binoculars provided to observe Grey Whales on the Pacific Ocean's choppy horizon during their migration in March. Most guests embark on various treks and walks while here, including complimentary nature hikes, while others prefer to admire the views from the full-service, award-winning Ancient Cedars Spa or while dining at The Pointe Restaurant over a platter of freshly caught seafood. You can be assured of excellent service at this Relais & Chateaux property, with the Les Clefs d'Or Concierge team ready to assist with the little details that will guarantee a memorable, relaxing stay.

Wildlife Encounters

On the doorstep of Tofino's spectacular wildlife, Wickaninnish Inn offers a luxurious base from which to discover the Pacific Rim's range of awe-inspiring landscapes and seascapes - easily explored across a variety of nature trails that set off from the Inn. Between May and October, encounter - alongside a trained expert - the striking Vancouver Island Black Bear as it comes out of hibernation, on a safe and breathtaking bear-watching tour. No Tofino experience is complete without taking to the open Pacific on a whale-watching tour; encounter sea lions, seals, sea otters and a variety of seabirds, alongside the stars of the show: striking Grey and Humpback whales.

Luxury Beach

Making the most of its spectacular position on the edge of the North Pacific, The Wickaninnish Inn offers direct access to picturesque Chesterman Beach, as well as panoramic ocean or beach views from every guest room. Breathe in the fresh sea air as you stroll across the golden sand, cycle along the stunning coast, spot striking bird species, or, if conditions permit, take to the waves on your surfboard.

Spa Breaks

Nestled amongst the centuries-old rainforest, Ancient Cedars Spa looks across fabulous Pacific Ocean scenery and delivers a full menu of rejuvenating spa treatments, including organic skincare and Aveda haircare. Guests can enjoy various beauty treatments, including manicures and pedicures, as well as nutrient-infused spa remedies using natural ingredients, such as hand-harvested seaweed collected from Vancouver Island. There's also Rainforest Haven, a beautiful yoga studio where guests can enjoy semi-private daily yoga classes (charges apply).
