Gateway to the wonders of Vancouver Island’s wild west coast, Wickaninnish Inn stands spectacularly on a rocky outcrop between the rainforest and the ocean.
First opened in 1996, Wickaninnish Inn has a well-earned reputation for its warm hospitality, elegant accommodation and enticing menu of outdoor experiences. Guests are perfectly positioned for exploring the Pacific Rim National Park and Clayoquot Sound, with everything from bear watching excursions to sea kayaking and insightful cultural tours on the menu. After, you can retreat to the serene spa where treatments draw on indigenous ingredients.
Made up of two neighbouring buildings beautifully constructed from natural wood, glass and stone, the property lies just steps from the beach with stunning seascapes at every turn. The handiwork of local artisans features heavily throughout, and you can even see the process first-hand in the onsite carving shed. As well as a crackling fireplace and giant soaking tub, every room has picture windows overlooking the wild Pacific coastline - ideal for storm watching between November and March. Another highlight is the award-winning Pointe Restaurant where you’ll find regional cuisine complemented by a 240-degree view of the ocean.
