The Destination
For thousands of years, the salmon-rich waters of Cowichan Bay—and the trout-rich river that feeds into it—have been the lifeblood of the area's inhabitants. But not until recently have these waters on the southern shores of Vancouver Island served recreational travelers. Thanks to a handful of boutique food vendors, like True Grain Bread and Hillary's Artisan Cheese, the town of Cowichan Bay became the continent's first Cittaslow community (an off-shoot of the Slow Food movement), and the thriving wildlife that prospers here has drawn nature lovers from around the world. And with a few nearby wineries, plus a handful of quaint shops selling locally produced goods, Cowichan Bay is more than just a fishing village.

The Digs
Overlooking the fishing boats bobbing in the harbor, the Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay make for an idyllic home base in this quiet little town. Fifty-six suites—each equipped with a master bedroom, a private bathroom, a kitchenette, and a comfortable living and dining area—all boast a beautiful ocean view.

Open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during winter, Terrain Kitchen, on the fifth floor of the hotel, serves breakfast and dinner with a focus on local and sustainable produce and seafood. Start with a cocktail and crab cakes, and move on to wild mushroom fettucini complemented by a glass of local wine. At some point during your stay, you'll want to settle into a massage or facial at the on-site Ocean Glo Wellness Spa, which uses organic and natural products in all of its body and beauty treatments. And on Monday and Wednesday, the hotel offers guests complimentary yoga classes.

  • "The great value comes from the staff, who are endlessly courteous, friendly, and professional. The hotel feels classy without coming across as pretentious. More value comes from the recent upgrades, but above all is the million-dollar view."
