The Wickaninnish Inn: The Ultimate Business Retreat


A tropical beach destination has nothing on The Wickaninnish Inn when it comes to providing a setting conducive to both productivity and rejuvenation. Nestled in a thicket off the coast of Vancouver Island, the Inn’s spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean, delectable local cuisine, rustic boardroom room, and elegant accommodations make it perfect for business meetings and team events. Whether it’s relaxing by the fireplace, falling asleep to ocean waves, or walking on the Inn’s private beach, the untamed beauty of Tofino offers a selection of ways your company can balance both work and play:

Group Fun At The Hot Spring Cave

While Tofino offers an array of outdoor adventures, nothing comes close to topping the Hot Springs Cave in Maquinna Provincial Marine Park. After Vancouver's finest chefs whip your team up a gourmet backpack lunch, enjoy a one-hour boat ride to the springs through waters teeming with marine wildlife such as whales and sea lions. Following the scenic boat ride, an easy thirty-minute trek along the cedar boardwalk delivers you straight to the geothermal hot springs, complete with a waterfall and five interconnected pools at a temperature of 50° C or 122° F. Return to Tofino to warm up by the fireplace on a thrilling 20-minute seaplane flight. Don’t forget your bathing suit!

Indulge In Indigenous Spa Treatments

Treat yourself and your colleagues to an extensive selection of body and esthetic spa treatments at the award-winning Ancient Cedars Spa. Enjoy a side-by-side massage in the Cedar Sanctuary, relax in the eucalyptus cave-style steam room,  or loosen up the knots from a bumpy boat ride in a semi-private Hatha yoga session. Techniques and ingredients unique to the West Coast’s indigenous people make for a unique spa experience that transforms both body, soul, and mind. Try the Hishuk Ish Tsawalk Awakening Treatment which harnesses the elements of fire, water, earth, and air to cleanse, awaken, and relax the body.

Gourmet Cuisine With Spectacular Views

Soak in the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean whilst nibbling on some of the finest cuisine Vancouver Island has to offer at The Pointe Restaurant.  Environmentally-sustainable dishes created by Executive Chef Warren Barr are comprised of organic and locally sourced game, produce, and seafood from the surrounding waters. Pair your meal with one of the restaurant’s extensive selection of B.C. and Pacific Northwest wines or high-quality crafted local beer.
