Canada's highest ranked resort is right here in our own backyard

Oct 11 2018, 7:53 pm

We interrupt your regular international Daily Hive Mapped programming for this important reminder: sometimes the best gems of the world are right here in our own backyard!

Condé Nast Traveler has released its 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards including the Top Resorts in Canada, and guess which resort snagged the #1 spot? The one and only Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino!

The ranking system comes from nearly half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers, who have rated their travel experiences to provide us with these wanderlust-guiding lists in a variety of categories.

With a stunning natural landscape, West Coast *cough* best coast *cough* ambience, award-winning spa, and cozy AF guestrooms, Wickaninnish Inn definitely has a top spot in our bucket list. It’s a perfect spot to sip some wine with an oceanfront view no matter what time of year.

“We are thrilled and honoured to be acknowledged as one of the best hotels in the world, and the top resort in Canada, among such esteemed company,” said Charles McDiarmid, Managing Director at the Wickaninnish Inn. “We are proud of every award we receive, but this one feels more personal because the recognition comes directly from our guests. There’s much for our team to be proud of.”
