Clayoquot Wilderness Resorts and Spa, located in the fragile Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve in one of the best intact examples of temperate rainforest left on earth, was founded in 1997 by The Genovese Family Trust. The resorts have grown into a golden triangle of adventure which begins and ends in the tiny village of Tofino on the western-most edge of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Clayoquot Wilderness Resorts and Spa promises discriminating travelers two world-renowned ultra-luxurious eco-resorts, otherworldly coastal cuisine, super natural adventure, and some of the most breathtakingly beautiful wilderness frontier left on the planet.Designated in 1999, by Unesco Programme on Man and the Biosphere, the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve was deemed a habitat so important to the biodiversity of the planet that the world community recognizes it as such and creates a cooperative reserve to protect and sustain it. The spirit of the Biosphere Reserve governs resort operations and forms the backbone of all policies and sustainable development. The Trust is committed to exist in Clayoquot Sound in an entirely sensitive and environmentally sustainable manner. Inspired by late 19th century Great Camps, the Wilderness Outpost at Bedwell River promises a delicious irony of indulgent luxury and remote, untamed wilderness. The quintessential marriage of soft adventure and soft beds- of childhood wishes and grown-up dreams come true. An enclave of 16 great white canvas guest and suite tents, plus dining tents, spa tents, and lounge tents offers visitors a taste of how the fortunate spent their summers "roughing it" some one hundred years ago. At a glance- a remote outpost, but up close- an ultra-luxurious, 21st-century-eco-safari style wilderness playground. The heart of the Outpost at Bedwell River is a new ranch-style log cookhouse, with its towering double-sided fieldstone fireplace, outdoor lounge and showpiece open-kitchen. Five-star food and beverage service, world-class amenities, sumptuous interiors, and super natural adventure, leave nothing wanting, no detail undone.

Directions to Hotel
If you are arriving from mainland USA or Canada, driving to Tofino will involve a B.C. or Washington State ferry ride to Nanaimo or Victoria. Call ahead for schedules and fares. Either way, point your vehicle in the direction of Port Alberni, then follow the signs through to Tofino. There is only one way in and/or out of Tofino and that is via Campbell Avenue. Stay on Campbell, turn right on 4th Street, left on Main Street, then drive about one and one-half blocks more, watching for the entrance to Method Marine and the Clayoquot Wilderness Resorts and Spa office on the right-hand side (ocean side) of the street.
