This was a 1 week trip rescheduled post the new management (we visited in July 2017, there's no option to choose this far back in the review,so full disclosure)

It's an incredible place but the best bits for us were
1) Seamless and professional organization from arrival to depar

Dear Joanna W, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review, it really means the world to our team, and to hear what you specifically found wonderful is extremely helpful to us. The comment about "communal but private" balance is great to hear. The dynamic of each set of our guests is unique and we are conscious of creating the experience they envisioned for their trip. Anything we can do to accommodate that is our number one priority. And thank you for mentioning our flexibility - this is a vacation after all, and we always want our guests to feel relaxed and able to enjoy the resort at their own pace. Again, thank you for this review, and I hope we will see you back in the Bedwell soon! Sincerely, Rosalyn Young Marketing Manager

The most amazing place - truly remote and peaceful but with the most luxurious surroundings and gourmet food - amazing guides and staff encouraging you to do as little or as much as you desire/ the spa alone was worth the trip - truly unique

Dear kaymurrant, We are truly grateful for your most positive review, and what a great photo of your tent! Thank you for sharing that along with your wonderful words. I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and in particular how much you loved the Healing Grounds Spa. Our therapists are phenomenal and the setting is truly unique. I hope you left feeling rested and rejuvenated, and with a little Clayoquot magic in your heart :-) It was a pleasure to host you. Wishing you happy travels and I hope we welcome you back again soon! Sincerely, Rosalyn Young Marketing and Guest Relations Manager

Lots of activities, many challenging. Setting beyond compare. Peaceful and attractive "tent" accommodations. Skilled, attentive, and friendly service across the board. Excellent crew of fit and amiable guides.

But I sense an identity crisis with recent change in management. Is t

Dear TPO1165, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review. Your constructive and candid feedback is important to us, as we know our guests are well-traveled, thus we take it seriously and always utilize it to review and improve our guest experience. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our adventure offerings, the wilderness setting, the tented accommodation and that you received excellent service across the board. The wonderful paradox of the resort, and one that we pride ourselves on, is the fact that we offer elegant Relais & Châteaux class cuisine and service in such a rugged and remote setting. The combination of rusticity and luxury is exactly what makes the resort unique. Again, thank you for your valuable feedback. We’re happy that you enjoyed the resort! Happy travels! Sincerely, Rosalyn Young Marketing and Guest Relations Manager

One could go on for pages lauding the endless attributes of this unique resort. The setting is incredible, nestled between the mountains in a pristine intersection of the sound and the river. The accommodations are similarly unique and luxurious while at the same time in keepin

Dear Greg K, What a glowing review! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. In my opinion, this is the best kind of review we could ask for, and I couldn't agree more, that that "the aura of this magical place is heightened exponentially by the individuals who work there." What a wonderful compliment to our team of staff, and I will be sure to share your words with them. I'm so thrilled you had an incredible stay with us. Clayoquot truly is a magical place, and it sounds like you took full advantage of all we have to offer. I'm glad you were able to dine privately as a family in one of our dining tents! That is such a memorable experience. Again, thank you on behalf of the Wild Team. Enjoy the rest of your summer! Sincerely, Rosalyn Young Marketing and Guest Relations Manager

My wife and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at Clayoquot in July and loved every minute of it. To be fair, our stay had the advantages of great weather and a really fun roster of fellow guests - but even without those bonuses, this place is really something special.

The scenery is o

Dear Chuck G, On behalf of the Wild team, thank you so much for taking the time to submit this wonderful review. Your sentiment about wanting to keep the resort a secret is something we hear often from our guests, and I think it only speaks to how truly unique and special this property is. I am happy to hear that you experienced the Wild Side excursion and had the opportunity to explore the area via helicopter with Dug! He is a legend! Our heli-tours are by far one of the best ways to take in Clayoquot Sound. I hope you and your wife were able able to slow down and soak in some special quiet moments for your anniversary as well, maybe at the Healing Grounds Spa or taking in the view in the Ivanhoe Lounge. The beautiful thing about Clayoquot, is that you can design your days to be as relaxed or as adventurous as you like. Thank you again for sharing your review with us. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the future! Sincerely, Rosalyn Young Marketing and Guest Relations Manager

"Worth it to splurge on the en-suite tent."
"The waterfront tents are epic. The cocktails at the bar are definitely worth an evening."
"Deluxe en suite river view tents"
"You get your cabin - all the same"
"I would stay in tents on the water next time. A bit further walk, but a nice view. Our tent was on the creek, and it was sublime."
