About the Wickaninnish Inn

The Wickaninnish Inn offers direct access to Chesterman Beach, and ocean or beach views from every guest room. We also have 75 deluxe guest rooms and suites (with gas fireplace), and a 720 sq. ft. meeting/banquet room (accommodating up to 60 people). The Pointe Restaurant seats 75 and our full-service Ancient Cedars Spa is a destination spa offering extensive body and esthetic treatments.

The Wickaninnish Inn story begins way back in 1955, and is closely tied to the modern-day history of Tofino and the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, and of course to the popular draw of Tofino winter storm watching.
