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
I took my wife to the Long Beach Lodge Resort for our anniversary. She had not been to the westcoast of Vancouver Island since she was a little girl. Thorougly enjoyed our stay and the dining experience was excellent. We stayed in an ocean front room and the view was tranquil and peaceful.
The endless display of majestic beauty is perfectly displayed from the front lounge of the lodge. The Reception and lounge staff treated us like returning family members even though we had never been here before. What a great feeling.
This was our first time visiting Tofino and it was amazing. Long Beach Lodge exceeded our expectations - it was by far the nicest place to stay. Had the best beach for walking and watching the surfers. The Great Room has wonderful food, lovely staff and amazing views of the beach, the ocean and the sunsets. I would definitely recommend this resort.
My partner and I spent 7 days at this beautiful natural ocean front resort. We had a room that looked out over the beach and the ocean view was spectacular. The resort had a very relaxed atmosphere and we spent our days walking the beaches and hiking the trails through the rainforest. The room was always a treat to return to. There was a fireplace and two cosy armchairs to sit and relax in as we watched the ocean waves. Peaceful and private. Every morning the restaurant made a different freshly homemade muffin which we enjoyed each day. Heaven!
