Expert Review

Near Tofino on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, this compound of luxurious tents and its lineup of outdoor activities offers a flawless mix of sumptuous safari style and soft adventure. Located in the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere on the banks of the Bedwell River, the eco-resort comprises 20 canvas-tented rooms and suites with touches like wooden floors, Adirondack-style beds, remote-controlled propane wood stoves, and even heirloom china. An adjacent private cedar bathhouse comes with a shower, sink, and toilet, with off-site generators providing hot water and electricity.

The entire complex - tents, lounge, and spa - is connected by cedar boardwalks set beneath the forested canopy. Even cooler than the primo tents are the range of rough country pursuits, from bear- and whale-watching to fishing and horseback riding. After a day in the wild, guests return to the opulent enclave for a four-course gourmet meal by acclaimed Chef Timothy May, and for relaxation at the riverfront spa compound's wood-fired cedar hot tubs and seawater baths. Rate includes all meals, activities, and airfare from Vancouver. 2008 Smart Luxury Award winner
