(Tofino, BC) October 5, 2021 – Celebrating 25 years on Nature’s Edge, the Wickaninnish Inn is once again recognized by leading travel magazine Reader’s Polls: Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards and Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards. Readers of Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler collectively vote the Wickaninnish Inn as their favourite resort hotel in Canada.

Fellow Relais & Chateaux property, Manoir Hovey is rated number one in Canada for the Travel + Leisure list and Fairmont Whistler is the number one resort in Canada for the Condé Nast Traveler list. The Wickaninnish Inn is the unanimous choice on both lists as the number two resort in Canada. The Inn was also rated Travel + Leisure #80 in top 100 resorts worldwide, one of only two Canadian properties to make the top 100, the other being Manoir Hovey in Quebec.

The Wickaninnish Team is delighted and honoured to share company among the Relais & Châteaux properties selected in Travel & Leisure’s Top 10 Resorts in Canada: Manoir Hovey and the Post Hotel & Spa. For Condé Nast Traveler readers, the Wickaninnish Inn is the only Relais & Chateaux resort property on the top 10 list of resorts in Canada.

Consistently ranking in Canada’s top-tier by the readers of both magazines for the past twenty years has earned the Inn Condé Nast Traveler’s coveted Platinum Circle and Travel + Leisure’s Hall of Fame list. To be included in the Platinum Circle a property must be on Condé Nast Traveler Gold List for five years running. Inclusion in the Hall of Fame list requires a property to make the top tier a minimum of 10 years in a row. The Wickaninnish Inn remains the only hotel in Canada on the Hall of Fame list.

The ongoing recognition from the readers of these prestigious publications is even more appreciated by the Wickaninnish Team as they are celebrating the Inn’s 25th Anniversary, not to mention it has been challenging times for the entire hospitality industry due to the pandemic.

Managing Director/Owner, Charles McDiarmid notes “It’s the people that make the place and this recognition means so much to our team who continually strive to create and enhance magical experiences for all our guests over the past 25 years. We stand on the shoulders of everyone who has come before us and yet even after 25 years, we are continually working to be better today than we were yesterday and better tomorrow than we are today.”

“Achieving the highest standards of service requires an ongoing commitment to growing, adapting and improving our amenities and service offerings for our guests while also continuing our longstanding commitment to sustainable hospitality and focusing on the essence of place when making all decisions.”
