Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast is ideal for adventurers and lovers of seclusion, and this 41-room, 20-cottage lodge offers lashings of both. Rooms are more cozy than design-minded but most have spectacular ocean views (cottages are a luxe step up, with fireplaces and outdoor hot tubs.) The Great Room is the hub of the resort, a cavernous yet cozy space with Oriental rugs, a stone fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows framing gorgeous views of Cox Bay Beach. It’s also where guests can nosh on a Pacific Northwest menu heavy on locally-sourced comfort dishes like Clayoquot Sound crab cakes, seafood chowder, and sablefish with Asian greens and udon noodles.
In the Area
How often do you get to learn how to surf without even leaving your hotel? The resort’s unique Surf Club Adventure Center offers instruction in both surfing (Cox Bay Beach) and standup paddle boarding (MacKenzie Beach.) Take a float plane flight over stunning Tofino with Tofino Air, where you’ll be privy to a dizzyingly wonderful landscape of rain forests, ocean, lakes, and glaciers. If terra firma’s more your trip, take a bike tour around the island’s West Coast–Tofino’s Tof Cycles can deliver your rental wheels right to the resort.
How to Get There
We spent two relaxing nights at the Lodge, welcomed with fresh cookies and chocolate treats upon check-in. Our corner room had a partial ocean-view, with windows on 3 sides and a cozy sitting area with gas fireplace. We ate all our meals in the Great Room and enjoyed chatting with the friendly staff. The breakfasts are large & filling ... enough to keep you going most of the day! Thanks for the complimentary small bottle of wine in our room & sparkling wine at dinner to mark our 35th ... a lovely touch to a special get-away.
I recently visited the resort to celebrate my birthday! From the second I arrived my experience was so wonderful!
Huge thank you to Trevor who had a bottle of wine along with a birthday card waiting for me in my room upon arrival!
The restaurant has great food and the cocktail list is AMAZING!!! Big shout out to Sam and Aaron who both bartend. Great service, excellent drinks and they both know how to make your evening exceptional!
I would like to thank every single person working at the resort for making my birthday so special and memorable!
A must go for sure!
Go for the stunning view of Cox Bay and enjoy a well executed latte while you wait 40 minutes for your breakfast and you’re the only guest in the dining room.
On the flip side, it’s kinda worth the wait (have the bennies) and the staff are super lovely and accommodating.
