The Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino, Canada
Perched on a promontory beneath sounds of crashing waves, The Wickaninnish Inn, a member of the exclusive Relais & Chateaux portfolio of properties, is located on the rugged west coast of picturesque Vancouver Island. With just 75 rooms and a wonderfully remote location, the inn truly allows its guests to temporarily retreat, leaving stress and obligation far behind. Remarkable guest rooms feature gas fireplaces and balconies overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Sequester yourself behind closed doors and enjoy comforts and conveniences - from the private bar and beverage station to the library of tomes and selected music.
The Pointe Restaurant, offering all-day dining, exceeds expectations with its panoramic seascape views, innovative Pacific Northwest menu, organic approach to the culinary arts, and award-winning wine list. On the Rocks Bar & Lounge has a lodge-like feel with its crackling fireplace and clubby chairs positioned to make the most of conversation. A selection of regional wines, classic ports, and single-malt scotches rounds out its alluring appeal.

Reviews for The Wickaninnish Inn
We spent four nights in the Frank Island Suite- possibly the nicest suite in Canada and second only to the Skyloft and Mansion at the MGM in Las Vegas. A spacious , windowed luxury suite with a balcony open directly to a superb beach , this refuge has everything including boots for the beach, rain suits , HBC blankets for balcony dreaming, and all the usual amenities including a superb coffee press. Pop up TV's , CD and DVD players and a gas fireplace complete an inviting bedroom and cozy living room and the bathroom is luxurious with a view of the beach from the shower! Service is at the Tier One concierge level and room service from the Pointe Restaurant excellent. The environs outside are unique with miles of beach (clean and hard sand) to explore, pathways through rain forest to walk and quiet rest areas with comfortable chairs to spend meditative time with the background soothing sounds of waves breaking around you. This is a typical Chateau and Relais experience with a European feel for service and privacy in an uniquely Canadian location.. and my new favourite hotel.

What can we say, magical..... We stayed in the Pointe building and could have sat in our room watching the surf all day long. However we did have to try the restaurant as well and that was just as good.

The friendly staff that remembered our names, the well appointed casually comfortable room with details (such as binoculars and rain gear) that enhanced the location experience and the balcony view of crashing waves meeting the rain forest all contributed to a memorable experience. The restaurant setting is impressive but our appetizers and main courses were disappointing.

We visited Wickaninnish Inn for an anniversary weekend. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the service and experience were excellent. The room was spacious and a gorgeous view, a large soaker tub, fireplace and tons of amenities (beach blankets, rain coats, a backpack to borrow etc). The beds were very comfortable, luxurious bedding and big huge soft fluffy towels. The rooms (and the rest of the hotel) was spotless and well kept. Every staff member we encountered was courteous and helpful. We each had a spa treatment which was great and enjoyed meals at the resort, all of which were excellent. Although the weather wasn't ideal it was beautiful and relaxing. We are already looking forward to returning for another visit!

We stayed for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. The greeting from the staff was warm, welcome and sincere. Our room 106 was amazing. Spacious, a very deep bath to relax in and and unwind after a long drive and it has a view out to the ocean. The bed was a king and so comfortable. It is a bit out of town but we would definitely stay here again.
