The Destination
Remote and rugged, where old-growth forest meets the Pacific Ocean, the town of Ucluelet has only within the last 15 years attracted travelers to its breathtaking spot on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Just minutes from Pacific Rim National Park, this town of less than 2,000 residents is the decidedly quiet and less popular sister of Tofino, which sits 30 minutes north. But while it's retained much of its fishing-village heritage over the years, Ucluelet has seen an uptick in stylish boutique hotels and seasonal farm-to-fork restaurants in recent years, giving more than just outdoor enthusiasts a good reason to make the four-drive from Victoria.

The Digs
To one side of Black Rock Oceanfront Resort, a low-slung fog lingers amid an impossibly fertile temperate rain forest. On the other side, undulating tide pools are punctuated by the hotel's namesake craggy black rocks. The resort, a 2012 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice winner, blends seamlessly with its surroundings, with floor-to-ceiling windows that seem to let the outside in, and blacks, grays, and creams adorning the smooth lines of the resort's sleek modern furnishings. Each of 133 suites is equipped with a state-of-the-art kitchen, a fireplace, a balcony, and a TV with DVD player, and bathrooms feature heated floors, rain showers, and soaker tubs.

The Diversions
When you aren't reveling in the plush amenities of your room, head for Pacific Rim National Park Reserve - Long Beach Unit just six miles up the coast. Crisscrossing the park are 23 miles of beach and hiking trails, where you'll encounter moss-covered bridges and boardwalks, an authentic totem pole erected by the Ucluelet First Nation, and old-growth stands of red cedar and western hemlock.

It's all enough to leave you famished, which is where the on-site Fetch Restaurant and Float Lounge come in. Serving three meals a day, Fetch focuses on fresh Pacific Northwest cuisine, which is often made with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Float, with its double-sided fireplace, offers the perfect place for a nightcap and a small plate before an evening soak in the on-site hot tub.

Before you leave, head for the on-site Drift Spa, which makes use of the natural surroundings—think all-natural wild seaweed and rain-forest botanicals—in its variety of soothing treatments. It's the perfect way to bid farewell to this all-things-nature retreat on the edge of the continent.
