Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge
Remote, refined, remarkable
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Some 30 minutes by boat from Tofino, British Columbia Canada or 20 miles as the eagle flies, rests this premier eco-safari destination. Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is open annually from mid May to the end of September only and offers all-inclusive adventures of 3, 4 or 7 nights. Inspired by late 19th century Great Camps, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort promises the perfect pairing of soft adventure and soft beds - a delicious blend of childhood wishes and grown-up dreams. Situated at the mouth of the Bedwell River, where it spills into a nine-mile-long fjord, an enclave of 20 great white canvas guest tents, massage and treatment tents, dinning tents, lounge tents and a massive timber cookhouse peek out shyly from the dense bush. Clayoquot Wilderness Resort offers a discreet paradox of individual pampering and remote, untamed wilderness.
Restaurants & Bars
Soul Food - In the Cookhouse kitchen, well is defined by local, sustainable, seasonal, clean and beautiful – prepared with love and passion by an extraordinary team of Relais & Chateaux class artisan chefs. Cuisine is fine, luxurious, storied and comforting – rooted in sustainable, locally grown, foraged and harvested ingredients sourced almost entirely from Clayoquot Sound and Vancouver Island, and delivered daily to the resort by boat.
Ivanhoe Lounge - This adult-oriented space rests at the very edge of the estuary, at the point where the Bedwell River spills into the salty Pacific at Bedwell Sound.
