WICKANINNISH INN RECOGNIZED WITH CONDÉ NAST TRAVELER’S 2018 READERS’ CHOICE AWARD: “#1 RESORT IN CANADA”
(Tofino, British Columbia) Oct. 9, 2018 – Condé Nast Traveler today announced the results of its 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards with the Wickaninnish Inn recognized as the # 1 RESORT in CANADA.
“We are thrilled and honoured to be acknowledged as one of the best hotels in the world, and the top resort in Canada, among such esteemed company,” said Charles McDiarmid, Managing Director at the Wickaninnish Inn. “We are proud of every award we receive, but this one feels more personal because the recognition comes directly from our guests. There’s much for our team to be proud of.”
Nearly half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted a recording-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences to provide a full snapshot of where and how we travel today.
Released online today, the 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards provides an impressive list of illustrious locations and outstanding resorts in a variety of categories.
This is the third time the Wickaninnish Inn has received Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Award, taking the number one spot in both 2013 and 2014, and the second award from Condé Nast this year. In January 2018, the Wickaninnish Inn was given the Gold List Award which highlights the editors’ favourite hotels from the best across the globe.
A notable addition to the Wickaninnish Inn since last winning the top resort in Canada award is the creation of Howard’s Wine Cellar. The first of its kind on the West Coast, this temperature-controlled space divided by floor-to-ceiling glass has transformed the Inn’s ability to showcase its impressive wine selection, which offers hundreds of exceptional labels curated from regional vineyards and from wine producers around the world. The Wickaninnish Inn also shared the celebrated cuisine of The Pointe Restaurant with the release of their first cookbook in 2018 The Wickaninnish Cookbook: Rustic Elegance on Nature’s Edge.
The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.”
The 2018 Readers' Choice Awards are published exclusively on Condé Nast Traveler's website and celebrated in the November issue on newsstands nationwide on October 16.
