A minimum of $8000 a person for 4 nights... You know what kind of luxury vacation people could take for that amount money... Come on now. Absolute robbery. I could be eating lobster and sleeping on Egyptian cotton and still not rack up $2000 a day.

We recently stayed at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort and had an amazing vacation. We can’t say enough about the staff and Management of this resort. From the enthusiastic guides, to the excellent restaurant staff, housekeeping (yes they do your laundry daily), organizational staff and management, they exemplify 5 star service. While other high end hotels boast great service, this property’s employees are genuine and accommodating beyond expectations. The location is beautiful and serene. One can really check out of reality and decompress (no tv, newspapers, keys, money needed). Wifi is available in your tent which is handy but don’t use it if you really want to disconnect. There are so many activities and ways to relax you could easily stay a week without getting bored. Bradley was a wonderful host and the dogs on property enhanced the home-like feel. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning!

What a fantastic place this is. Its a perfect cocktail of one part picturesque campsite one part a luxury resort and one part family home. It starts with a magical seaplane ride which leads to a homely reception. Overall the service is top but standout accolades must go to the passionate, knowledgeable and friendly guides: Dan in particular was awesome. The friendly barman was also great. We did some amazing things: walking among 1,000 year trees, whale watching, paddle boarding, mountain biking, horse riding, fly fishing - we did it all. So many wonderful adventures to be had but for my 8 year old daughter the highlight was the opportunity to play with all the staff’s dogs who roam free adding to that family vibe. The breakfast was world class. Our only minor criticism was the lunch and dinner menus were somewhat limited and repetitive. Quality was excellent though.

Just returning from Clayoquot and still marveling at the level of service, the exquisite beauty and the sophistication of the food... luxury and adventure rolled into one. Our experience was memorable from the first minute with champagne and sparkling lemonade awaiting our arrival (post horse drawn carriage from the seaplane dock). The two general managers showed us the entire property and kept an attentive eye on us and all the guests throughout our stay. Their greatest achievement is in the staff they have assembled. The guides were incredibly enthusiastic, accommodating and caring. Each of them overjoyed to be there and knowledgeable about everything from bears to orcas to paddle-boarding and canyoning. The activities are endless with the flexibility to choose your own adventure at (nearly) a moment's notice. Canyoning, wildlife watching, hikes, horses, spa, archery... we did it all. Our entire experience was customized to us. Another true highlight was the food -- the pasty chef is amazing and the sheer selection of entrees at bkfst/lunch and dinner kept us constantly stuffed, but unable to turn away from the next delicacy. We enjoyed the small touches -- laundry done for you, cookies and desserts put out each afternoon, the staff setting up games for us while it rained and proactively offering the kids hot chocolate and an unbelievable amount of gear for any occasion..down to brand new archery gloves, paintball suits, beautiful Helly Hansen hiking boots, all in an array of sizes. We could not have been more impressed. Well done, Clayoquot!
