Iconic Wickaninnish Inn Renovations Now Complete
(Tofino, BC) It is with great pleasure that the award-winning Wickaninnish Inn announces the completion of a $2.5 million upgrade to this iconic Tofino property.
Working with input from guests who provided feedback on two prototype rooms, and under the guidance of BBA Design Consultants of Vancouver, the new design of the Pointe guest rooms was well informed and carefully considered. The final result is a no-expense spared upgrade to an already stunning Inn.
The 45 Pointe Building guestrooms were upgraded from top to bottom to include heated bathroom floors, new LED TVs, completely new bathrooms with Grohe fixtures, recycled wood finishes, slate entrances and balconies and more efficient fireplaces. Refurbished and upgraded furniture, new linens and artwork are also among the many enhancements. The Pointe guest rooms now feature all of the same five diamond standards as the Inn’s Wickaninnish-at-the-Beach building guestrooms and suites, as well as the welcoming elegance guests have come to expect from the Inn.
This comprehensive revamping of guest rooms in the original Pointe building began at the same time the Beach Building, The Pointe Restaurant and the Ancient Cedars Spa were undergoing their annual refreshment. Part of this renewal also included the addition of other new elements, including the new Steam Cave at the Ancient Cedars Spa.
The Wickaninnish Inn invites guests to experience “Rustic Elegance on Nature’s Edge” in their newly enhanced Pointe Building guestrooms this spring. Of course all the spectacular views remain exactly the same, just framed with a little more wood, stone and glass.
