Tofino, Vancouver Island
Suspended on a rugged bluff, Wickaninnish Inn is hugged by the dramatic Pacific, old-growth forests, and Chesterman Beach. It makes for show stopping views – with every room looking out over the wild ocean or wind-sculpted sands. They even give you binoculars for surfer-spotting as you cosy up around your room’s fireplace, with its carved mantelpiece by local artist Henry Nolla. Natural driftwood, cedar, fir, and stone feature throughout the inn – from the lobby, with its gripping views of Chesterman Beach through 20 foot high windows, to The Pointe Restaurant, where the 240 degree views of the pounding Pacific surf, Pacific Northwest menu, and renowned wine collection all vie for top billing. Returning from whale watching, beach walks, or sea kayaking, you can relax over hot chocolate at Driftwood Café, cocktails at On the Rocks, or yoga at Ancient Cedars Spa.
