Spend some time at Long Beach Lodge Resort, Tofino, Canada

Ranked #60 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.

“You can surf right outside your front door and the sunsets from your jacuzzi are mind-blowing.” Craig Tansley

This remote lodge sits on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast. Surf (and surfers) tumble in all day – it’s mesmerising.

You can hike, kayak or zipline through the Kennedy River Canyon. Wildlife watching is incredible (there are bears!). Inside is cosy with a huge stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling ocean views.

The cuisine suits the surroundings: fresh seafood and foraged produce.

Size 41 lodge rooms and 20 cottages

Hotels.com genuine guest score 4.5/5
