Wickaninnish Inn, a Relais & Chateaux property since 1997, 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 rooms and suites offer ocean or beach views, gas fireplace, soaker tub and individual balcony. Uncompromising service, including a Clefs d’Or Concierge team, is a standard. The sole resort on Chesterman Beach, Tofino’s longest at 2.5km/1.5mi, the Inn is home to refined West Coast cuisine at The Pointe Restaurant and naturally-inspired treatments at its intimate Ancient Cedars Spa. Tofino’s McDiarmid family welcomes you to this locally owned, world renowned sanctuary offering Rustic Elegance on Nature’s Edge.

I came for lunch and to enjoy the amazing storm surge Tuesday, November 17th at the Pointe Restaurant. The food was delicious and all the service staff unpretentious yet professional. Unfortunately I had an anaphylactic allergic reaction to something in the meal (something completely new to me). Sorin the maître d’ immediately came to my rescue and even had an epi-pen to help reverse my symptoms. The ambulance services were contacted immediately, and then out of now where Claire, a member of the Marketing Team at Wikkaninish, took me into a private area to monitor my vitals until passing me off to the ambulance team. Sorin and Claire went above and beyond to make me feel safe and compassionately cared for. The Wikkaninish management team should be commended for hiring and training such authentically caring staff.

Returned from a 4 night stay at this terrific Relais and Chateux property on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Wonderful. Our room was in the Pointe Building with an ocean view, but couldn’t really see much of the beach. The other building is better for that. Tofino is great for Storm Watching, walking in the Rain forest photography and beach walking. Pacific Rim National Park is great. Service at the Inn is top notch. Meals are not cheap and maybe not what one would expect at a 5 star resort. For a low key reasonable lunch try Wilderness Cafe across the street (very low key but great chowders). There is also a huge lineup at a taco stand there. 1909 restaurant also very good.

We had the BEST time here at the Wickaninnish Inn. We loved everything about our stay here at the Wick. The property is absolutely beautiful, tons of areas to see the beaches and access down to the beaches. The rooms are super clean and super comfortable. The spa and the restaurants are both a must do here. I can't wait to come back here again as soon as we're able to.

We stayed for 3 nights and had the best time. From the amazing views, to the luxurious linens, to the memorable customer experience, I could not have asked for a better stay. Our only wish is we could’ve stayed longer!
