In total, British Columbia dominated the category, with eight resorts placing in the top 20.
“There are amazing resorts throughout Canada and British Columbia in particular, so it is very exciting to us that the discerning readers have acknowledged Long Beach Lodge Resort for a second consecutive year,” said Tim Hackett, owner of Long Beach Lodge Resort. “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to a great guest experience.”
Long Beach Lodge Resort is located in Cox Bay, located just 7 km south of Tofino in an area known for world-class surfing and storm watching. The property includes eight-acres of beachfront property, 41 lodge rooms and 20 cottages, a full-service dining room and lounge called The Great Room, and the new Surf Club at Long Beach Lodge Resort – the only full service surf centre located in a luxury resort on the west coast of North America and providing guests with a fully equipped place to change, shower, decompress, and even warm up in a private hot tub and sauna following their time out on the waves.
“As we enter the winter months, Long Beach Lodge Resort is prepared to welcome both seasoned and novice surfers,” says Hackett. “The new Surf Club Centre is our take on the Tofino spa experience; our focus is on ensuring guests have the best possible surf experience whether they want one-on-one time with instructors, or just enjoy the pre and post rituals.”
