U.S. News Review

Overlooking an untamed strip of Pacific coast on Vancouver Island (about 195 miles northwest of Victoria), The Wickaninnish Inn is a bit of Relais & Châteaux luxury amid the pines. Guests adore this hotel's rugged setting and isolated locale. All 75 guestrooms boast ocean views, and include balconies, fireplaces, soaker tubs and heated flooring in the bathrooms. Some suites feature kitchens, but guests can dine on-site at The Pointe Restaurant (though some diners say its locally-sourced fare is overrated). On the other hand, On The Rocks Bar and Lounge is a nice place to warm up with a hot toddy during winter, and the Driftwood Café serves up casual, tapas-style meals and sandwiches. For a bit of relaxation, hotel guests suggest heading to Ancient Cedars Spa, which offers treatments like West Coast Sacred Sea body wraps and hot stone facials.
