Situated in Tofino, on Vancouver Island's rugged west coast, the Wickaninnish Inn, a member of Relais & Chateaux, is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean with an old growth temperate forest as a backdrop. 

The Inn is a year-round destination for surfers, hikers, sea kayakers and other outdoor enthusiasts from around the world. It's also known as the spot where winter storm watching originated, an adventure where guests can witness the natural drama of 25-foot waves crashing against the shore and rocks. The Pointe Restaurant offers 240 degree views of the scene along with fresh, innovative, refined west coast cuisine prepared by the talented culinary team of chefs Warren Barr and David Sider.

"We are thrilled and honored with this latest recognition by the readers of Travel + Leisure," said Charles McDiarmid, Managing Director.
