How can we convey the magic of Clayoquot Wilderness Resort? We want to encourage all those who are considering a trip to this one-of-a-kind resort – it is a must! From the moment the seaplane circles over the clear waters of Bedwell Sound, you know you have been transported to an otherworldly place. After the warmest, most personal greeting you can imagine (complete with champagne cocktails and welcoming hor d’oeuvres), you spend the next few days in a veritable paradise. Every vacation has its standout moments, but what about a vacation where EVERY moment is exceptional? Each trip/activity is carefully planned so that each person in your group is happy and challenged to “get out of their comfort zone”. In our group, we had active and eager ten-year olds who scaled mountains (planned exclusively for our boys), kayaked, water skied, surfed and went rock climbing; a timid grandmother who went horseback riding for the first time in her life, tried her hand at archery and hiked “the wild side”; exhausted parents who relaxed in the spa, enjoyed drinks by the fire and reveled in the joy of their family. We all had the privilege of seeing bears, otters, orcas, bald eagles, porpoises, anemones, sea stars – all in their natural environments: unforgettable memories.
But the heart of Clayoquot is not just in the spectacular surroundings and outstanding adventures – as the other reviewers have mentioned, it is the people who push the resort into the stratosphere of vacation experiences. Each and every guide was friendly, knowledgeable, PATIENT and encouraging. At every meal, we were greeted by the warmest smiles and the most helpful wait staff (thank you Johnnie and Sienna!); our grandmother was particular in her food choices, but the kitchen staff accommodated her every request with a smile – their only wish is that the guests enjoy their food….and enjoy we did! The resort serves top-notch food – we live in New York and have access to some of the best food in the world – and the meals here rival the top restaurants in the country. Using locally sourced, absolutely fresh ingredients, Chef Ryan and his staff never overwhelm their food with fancy preparations, but somehow highlight and transform them into gourmet experiences. We cannot thank them enough for all the care! Each dinner is complemented by a careful selection of BC wines – all chosen by the extremely knowledgeable, friendly and delightful sommelier, Tereza; she entertained all of our questions and made sure the wines highlighted the food. She took such care and time with us – we will never forget her wonderful smile and warmth.
To John, Adele and Kathy – thanks to your careful and detailed planning, we had the trip of a lifetime, knowing that the utmost care was being taken to preserve that beautiful area. We thank you for dedicating yourselves to CWR – for the three generations in our family, you allowed us to enjoy the natural beauty, and also have once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
