Recently Executive Chef Ryan and his Senior Sous Chef Kaelhub hosted a gourmet evening with Chef Warren from our neighbouring Relais & Châteaux property, The Wickanninish Inn, at theRelais & Châteaux Maison in New York City. With food from our coastal waters, and wine from our Okanagan valley, the Chefs wined and dined 50 guests and media throughout the evening.

Guests of both resorts were invited to the Maison, located close to Central Park, to celebrate not only their favourite province in Canada but their favourite resorts on the west coast!

Back to School Hideaway

Great wildlife viewing

While the weather is still breathtaking out here in the temperate rainforest, September has been known to be a quieter month for us at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort. With all the kids back in school, we find this is the perfect time to reconnect with that someone special for a quiet getaway to the wilderness.

Take normally great September weather and a pinch of amazing wildlife viewing with a dash of luxury and you have got yourself a trip worth having!

Give us a shout at 1-888-333-5404 or email to book your September
