Resorts are fantastic for a step-up from your classic motels and hotels. There are plenty all over Vancouver Island ranging from affordable three-stars, all the way to five-star, west coast luxury. Typically, the resorts on Vancouver Island offer incredible, ocean views and perks like private balconies, hot tubs and even spa facilities. Depending on where you’ve chosen, you may even get to choose between lodge-type rooms, rainforest cabins, or beachfront suites!
Besides the added comforts, resorts are great because they often have very comfortable common spaces that allow for a more social experience than a hotel. Onsite dining is also a bonus and seafood is a must while on the coast! Want to plan an adventure? Plenty of Vancouver Island’s resorts offer rentals for things like surfing, kayaking, or SUP boarding. They also often offer their own tours, or can arrange for things like fishing trips, or whale watching! If you’re worried about the cost, a visit in the off season can often mean half price rates. While the coast can get quite rainy and stormy, it also means you’ll take full advantage of your beautiful suite, condo or cabin by cozying up indoors to watch the waves and the rain.
