Travel+Leisure Magazine has named Ancient Cedars Spa at the Wickaninnish Inn, in Tofino, B.C., the top hotel spa in the world and the best hotel spa in the Continental U.S. and Canada. In the same poll, the readers voted the inn the fifth-best hotel in the Continental U.S. and Canada, making it the magazine’s top-ranked Canadian property.
“Knowing that the travel-savvy readers of T+L Magazine have singled out the Inn and our Ancient Cedars Spa is very inspiring for our team,” says Charles McDiarmid, the Inn’s managing director.
The magazine’s readers were asked to comment on four aspects of each spa visited: ambiance, treatments, service and value. The Wickaninnish offers guests 75 rooms and suites, each with its own fireplace, soaker bathtub, private balcony and views of the Pacific Ocean.
