We spent 3 nights at CWR. It was wonderful. This is luxurious glamping at its best. A very special treat. Spectacular location, incredible getaway. Staff friendly and attentive, food amazing, activities exciting. And wildlife too. Loved it.

My wife arranged a spectacular 80th birthday long weekend with eight of our family at this outstanding wilderness resort. On a sunny Thursday afternoon our seaplane descended between the jagged mountain peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park to the beautifully sited resort at the end of Bedwell Sound. In the stunning Canadian wilderness we enjoyed accommodation,spa, food and drink usually only...

We booked 7 nights at Clayoquot, and that was the cleverest thing we've done! Clayoquot is simply brilliant! But what made our experience there unique and memorable was the fact we stayed for more than the usual 3-4 nights. So we were able to truly enjoy this place and get to know the staff, who is simply marvelous. Every member...

My family and I spent a week at Clayoquot. Since then, I've been remembering those old ads for the Queen Mary - a woman standing with her mop, cleaning house, and thinking "Once I was served coffee from a silver service." The guides, the chefs, the spa, the wait staff-- all behaved as if I were a friend they had...

You arrive here by seaplane ,weather permitting. I must admit to feeling rather nervous on arrival as we were staying for seven days. I was concerned that we would get bored or be thrust too closely together with other guests which has happened on a previous holiday. I needn't have worried. All bar one of the activities that we chose...

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...

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.
