Clayoquot Wilderness Resort – Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Remote. Refined. Remarkable.

The winter will soon give way to spring rains, flowers, and sunny days. This is great for many, but those who love layering, and enjoying the snow, will miss winter. If you are the latter, then consider heading a bit north to Canada. Today we are talking about Vancouver Island. This beautiful island lies off the Pacific Coast and hosts Clayoquot Wilderness Resort.

Clayoquot is a 600 acre resort built for nature lovers who want to unwind, unplug, and reconnect to the things that matter most. This all-tent resort is backed by the Relais & Chateaux Hotel chain to ensure luxury. Named for the Native people who settled here 2000 years ago, they proudly share Clayoquot’s history.

The accommodations at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort are all luxury tents in 5 styles. They have hardwood floors, and permanent bath room structures, and the sleeping areas are tented and guaranteed to keep you warm and safe. In the Waterfront Ensuite Tents, you can witness the tides come in, then digress, see the rising sun, and enjoy natural inlet views.

For some units, like the Hillside, and Rainforest tents, there are even heated floors, double sinks, private outdoor showers, and queen sized daybeds to bask in the nature. They are large enough for a romantic time for two, or for an entire family to relax, eat, and experience the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort.

Speaking of food, there are three places to fill your belly. Enjoy your favorite meals and libations from before dawn until after midnight at The Cookhouse. Ivanhoe Glass Lounge is the best for refreshing cocktails, and nature watching. You can see bears, heron birds, otters, and seals while you relax fireside with your favorite drinks. For a more refined dining experience, Lounge and Dining Tents like the bistro, outdoor lounge, and family dining tents give you upscale meals in the wilderness.

The experiences at the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort include water, land, and air activities. Water lovers can go kayaking, watch whales, or go fishing. The landlubber in you might enjoy archery, hiking, biking, paintball, and rock climbing while those who desire wings can explore Vancouver Island and beyond by helicopter. If the green side of you wants to help preserve nature, you can also help cleanup efforts, or donate to Clayoquot cleanup.

Finally, get back to your center with spa and wellness options. Forest bathing, meditation, organic foods and more help you balance. You can choose from a generous selection of massage treatments, or soak away the day in wood heated saunas. The Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is described as remote, refined, and remarkable.
