Wickaninnish Inn Voted Best Canadian Resort in Condé Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Awards
Tofino, British Columbia (October 22, 2014). The Wickaninnish Inn was named the #1 resort in Canada, as announced this week in the 2014 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.
The “Wick” provides a casual, elegant setting for experiencing the wild, natural beauty of the remote west coast of Vancouver Island. Situated on Chesterman Beach in Tofino, a quaint surfing community, it is surrounded by views of the Pacific Ocean and has a temperate rainforest as a backdrop. The area’s wild beaches, passing whales, bear watching, and numerous hiking trails within Pacific Rim National Park make it a year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts, culinary travelers, spa lovers and even eloping couples from around the world.
The Inn is also famous for originating the concept of winter storm watching, where guests experience the natural drama of 25-foot waves crashing against the shore onto Chesterman Beach. And diners witness the scene from their table at The Pointe Restaurant, with its 240-degree views, while enjoying fresh, innovative regional cuisine prepared by the talented culinary team of chefs Warren Barr and David Sider. The Inn’s Ancient Cedars Spa provides a well-deserved retreat into relaxation after an exciting day in the elements.
“We are thrilled to learn about this latest honor by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler,” said Charles McDiarmid, Managing Director. “It’s gratifying to know that our guests appreciate the level of commitment by our excellent staff, and we delight in providing the best possible experiences for visitors to our resort.”
