Tofino is as far west as you can get in Canada & if you want to see this spectacular setting in style, you'll pick the Wick.
Granted it's roughly an hour flight or a 5 hour drive from Victoria, but once you get here, you'll understand "the bother".
The setting is on a spectacular beach & rocky coastline with lush rain forests, eagles & beginning surfers. The hotel is both kid & dog friendly. But you'll see more couples of various ages, all here to unwind.
We booked an end room on the second floor with an ocean view, king bed. This came with luxurious amenities like a fireplace, great linens, a jetted tub with an ocean view, tv that recedes Into a cabinet when not in use, even loaner binoculars.
The hotel offers bicycles to loan for free, as well as a car, but for that you have to possess a Canadian passport. Taxi service is available which you'll want. As the price points for meals at the hotel as exorbitant, though the setting is spectacular.
