Survey ranks Vancouver Island resort as second best in Canada


For the past eighteen months, we have all been dreaming of vacation. 

Hotel robes, all you can eat breakfast and trips to the spa fill our dreams as we hope to one day make those wishes a reality. 

With restrictions easing across the country,  including inter-provincial travel, Canadians may be looking to finally take an extravagant holiday, one they haven’t been able to take in almost two years.

If you aren’t sure where to go, Travel and Leisure has released the top 10 resort hotels in Canada, based on a survey for their World’s Best categories.

Each year, Travel and Leisure asks their readers to share their opinions on top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, spas, airlines and more. 

Hotels are rated on their facilities, location, service, food and overall value and awarded a score based on the results. 

This year, six of the ten resorts recognized in the survey were located in Western Canada, with three each found in British Columbia and Alberta. 

Tofino’s own Wickaninnish Inn was voted second amongst Canadian voters, scoring a 97.0 in the survey. 

The Inn is located on the rocky edge of Chesterman’s Beach’s northern cape. The highly regarded Inn sits only a few minutes south of Tofino and is central to explore Pacific Rim National Park and Clayoquot Sound. 

The Wickaninnish Inn includes accommodations, a fine dining restaurant, an award winning spa and more.
