Located within the small town of Tofino, we strongly believe in the continuous contribution to the stewardship of our community, both as a respected establishment and as individual members. We sponsor many local events, and our team members can put paid hours towards volunteering efforts. Our internal committees — Sustainability, Staff, Health & Safety —allow the team to reach beyond their immediate roles and directly impact and influence how we operate on and off the property.

Working at an award-winning Relais & Châteaux property affords our team members world-class training and brand recognition within the service industry. Our people are able to move within the Relais & Châteaux family to amazing properties throughout the world as they progress in their careers.
