Victoria + Vancouver Island

Hotels in Victoria + Vancouver Island

A 22-acre resort situated on Rathtrevor Beach (which extends north into a provincial park), Tigh-Na-Mara's name means "house by the sea" in Gaelic. The 192 rooms, suites, and cabins are all log constructions with wireless Internet; many also have fireplaces and waterfront views.

“Roughing it” at Clayoquot should appeal to even the most dedicated sybarite. A floatplane brings guests from Vancouver to a secluded compound hugging a spruce- and cedar-shaded shore.

The crown jewel of the Cowichan food scene, thanks to proprietor and chef Mara Jernigan, who also leads a terrific Saturday cooking class.

A 46-guest-room resort with en suite soaking tubs and fireplaces and a 110-slip marina.

To reach the wilderness resort that defines the word “glamping” (or glamorous camping), guests fly in by floatplane and then travel on by horse and wagon to the camp. Twenty white, luxury tents are set in the backwoods of Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

For panoramas of the rocky shore and snowcapped mountains, reserve one of the three rooms at this inn,  set atop a 400-foot bluff.

Located in Central Vancouver Island, just three kilometers from the coastal village of Tofino, Middle Beach Lodge sits on 40 acres of private West Coast oceanfront. The property has two lodges, 20 self-contained cabins, and nearly one mile of private beach.

Waterfront white clapboard inn known for its food, much of which is sourced from the on-site garden. 

This property has closed.

The Wickaninnish Inn, set on a remote, pine forest–ringed promontory, is best enjoyed during fierce weather—the more ferocious, the better. In the 75 rooms, duvet-covered beds and deep soaking tubs sit beside ample windows that look out on the churning ocean and rain-lashed coast.

Ivy-covered, British-inspired 1908 hotel (don't miss the traditional afternoon tea with scones and finger sandwiches) facing the Inner Harbour; one of Victoria's best addresses.

Long Beach Lodge Resort sits along eight acres of Vancouver Island's West Coast. The Cox Bay beachfront property has 41 lodge rooms, each with handcrafted Douglas fir furniture, an oversized soaking tub, slate floors, and local artwork on the walls.
