Glamping at its best! Our family stayed in the gorgeous, ensuite tents with heated bathroom floors. Everything was perfect. The gourmet food was amazing from breakfast to dinner. Can't wait to return. I hope they continue to add more activities and hone their attentiveness to details.

I had the opportunity to spend four days at this beautiful resort with the family I work for (I’m a Nanny), which was one of [if not] the best vacation experience we’ve ever had! The 360 degree views of open wilderness, the luxurious tent accommodations, and the plethora of activities was awesome, but ultimately, it was the incredible staff and... More

What an incredibly amazing experience!! The only way to get there, is by water plane. You land on a river in de middle of nowhere, as far as u can see there are only trees, mountains and just beautiful nature. they provide a very warm welcome where the entire staff introduces themselves and the activities they are responisble for.

I cannot speak to the reviews from 2015, but our visit in June of 2016 under new manager Sarah was fantastic. The natural beauty of the place cannot be adequately described here. The sleeping tents, dining facilities and grounds were better than any of the many Glamping resorts my family and I have visited, and we have been to some... More

This luxury destination has a keen focus on delivering personalized service, excellent food, and well organized activities with friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. When combined with the scenery, luxury tents and activities, this is the best choice for luxury Glamping on Vancouver Island. The new executive chef, pastry chef, and resort manager are a wonderful complement to seasoned guides, sommelier,... More

It has been several years since we were there but the food,accommodations and everything there is just the best. Activities are well planned with something to interest everyone. It is just an unusual trip that you should experience. It is expensive but well worth the price. From the reports i heard it has just gotten better.

I don't normally write reviews but decided to jump on the bandwagon recently. Clayoquot has been on the back of my mind and I wasn't going to write about our stay in September last year but feel people need to know what this resort is really like. We were really looking forward to our 3 night stay in Clayoquot but... More

Some issues could be related to an abrupt change in management while we were there--but generally this experience was not up to the level of other, much less expensive Relais & Chateau wilderness resorts in Chile we visited during the past year. The tents were nice but nothing to get excited about (though I did love the outdoor shower), the... More

This was my second visit to Clayoquot. The first was 6 years ago. It is nothing like I remember. The staff was tired and irritable (there were exceptions which I will mention). The new management seemed confused and unresponsive. We were told that they had fired the previous managers and blamed them for the fact that things were running so... More

Dear Mariedory23, thank you so much for expressing your opinion about your recent stay at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort. I am always grateful to receive heartfelt opinions that can only help us improve the customer experience.
