Reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century, Clayoquot is anything but a rustic, woodsy escape. Instead, its safari-like tents and interior Victorian-era decor hark back to a simpler time. The resort, surrounded by one of the last untouched rain forests on Earth, is accessible only by seaplane or a 30-minute boat ride from the closest town, Tofino. The Luxury Waterfront Ensuite Tent has a warming stove (you’ll appreciate this in the early mornings), heated bathroom floors, an outdoor cedar shower, old-world vintage oil lamps and antique silver decor. Proximity to the Bedwell River lends itself to lake activities like boating, kayaking, paddleboarding and swimming. If indoor activities suit you better, the Ivanhoe Lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows where you can view otter, seals and other wildlife as you admire the Bedwell River and the surrounding landscape.
Top suite: Luxury Waterfront Ensuite Tent from $5,700 per person for three nights
Flying high: Design your own helicopter adventure with a private guide to kayak, hike or discover untouched beaches. You can also fly out a private chef to cook dinner on Vargas Island Beach before flying home, happy and full.
