Affectionately known as the Wick Inn, this resort is a nature lover’s paradise.
It’s hard to think of a more spectacular setting than that of Tofino’s ‘Wick Inn’. Sitting on the rocky west coast of the Esowista Peninsula on the edge of the Pacific, it overlooks the often beautifully-deserted Chesterman Beach and is almost completely surrounded by the forest. It feels as if you’re perched at the edge of the world. As you would expect, the Inn really makes the most of its surroundings. There are the floor-to-ceiling windows in many of the public spaces and each room, including the Beach Deluxe Rooms and two-storey Chesterman Beach Lofts, has a truly awe-inspiring view from the private balcony – even the bathrooms have a window on to the beautiful outdoor world.
This stunning stretch of coast Tofino is at its busiest during the summer months; however, winter storm watching is a serious business here and the Wick is the front-row seat. Get yourself a hot chocolate, get cosy by your room’s fireplace and watch as rollers crash over the rocks. This is mother nature at her wildest.
The Point Restaurant is a delightful space which has 240-degree of the Pacific Ocean. The menu is focused on West Coast dishes – think sea food and succlenet meat dishes – created with fresh and locally-sourced produce. Make sure you save a bit of space following your main course as the dessert menu here is very well thought of.
