Overview

Gourmet cuisine, professional staff and unique lodging
It is difficult to get here

Exclusiveness, luxury and gorgeous backcountry surroundings are just a couple of advantages to staying at this remote compound in Clayoquot Sound on the western coast of Vancouver Island. Accessible only by sea plane or boat from nearby Tofino, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort introduces "glamping" (or glamorous camping) to travelers across the globe. Unwind in one of 25 upscale tents, several of which include en-suite bathrooms with heated floors and indoor/outdoor showers. All accommodations include single Adirondack-style, queen-size and king-size beds. Prices for this lodge, though steep, are all-inclusive (excluding spa treatments). Coastal cuisine from the Cascadia region is on the menu at the resort's restaurant. Recent visitors offer glowing reviews not only for the resort's gastronomy, but also for its accommodations, service and activities. If you're looking to unwind, consider scheduling a treatment at the Healing Grounds Spa. And if you're in the mood for adventure, you'll find an abundance of outdoor pursuits like hiking, fishing, archery and wildlife-watching.
