Wickaninnish Inn, a Relais & Châteaux property, 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 75 rooms and suites offer ocean or beach views, a gas fireplace, a soaker tub, and an individual balcony. The sole resort on Chesterman Beach, the Inn is home to refined West Coast cuisine at the Pointe Restaurant and naturally-inspired treatments at its intimate Ancient Cedars Spa. The Wickaninnish Inn was voted 2014’s top resort in Canada by Travel + Leisure magazine.
