Chase & Embrace the Storm

Sure, winter in Tofino may bring short days, dark skies, and seemingly relentless winds. But it also brings an unbelievable freshness to the air, exhilaration to the skin, and impressively wild entertainment for the eyes.

We've had an incredible storm season thus far. The west facing beaches of Cox Bay collect the building swells pushed in from the North Pacific Ocean. Giant waves crash against the rocky shoreline, thrusting bursts of salt water and sea foam into the air to be carried effortlessly down-shore by the sweeping winds.

Every storm is unique and to experience one in person is as though you're treating the senses to a spa day. Ocean water is packed with nutrients and minerals and a visit to the sea can have many physical and mental health benefits. The white noise of crashing waves has been proven to aid with sleep, helping you truly recharge during your holiday!

Rather stay inside? Perched on the high-tide line, our water-view rooms or the Great Room dining hall offers the perfect vantage point for guests who want a dry place to take in the show. There is nothing cozier than basking in the warm glow of the Lodge on a cold day.

Book a sea-side getaway and catch the best in winter storm watching from the comfort of your room or steps from your private rainforest cabin.

*We recommend always using extra caution during storm season. High tides and surging seas pose higher risk for shoreline spectators. Observe and obey local beach warnings and potential closure signs that may be posted at trail heads during high-risk periods.

"Incredible dinner"
Well, this was easily one of the best value meals/experiences we’ve had in years. Outstanding food, perfectly pitched service, and the sunset alone was worth the bill. We were celebrating something special and staff could not have been lovelier. Truly grateful for a hands down fantastic evening.
"'Amazing' only begins to describe it"
My wife and I stayed for three nights, and it was everything we could have imagined and more. The food was delicious (we enjoyed two dinners and a breakfast in the Great Room), the friendly, accommodating, and cheerful staff made us feel comfortable and at home, the location is unmatched (stepping out our patio door and directly onto the beach never got old,) and the overall vibe of the lodge -- luxurious but unpretentious – was truly something to experience. We travelled with our six month-old daughter -- our first trip with her -- and any reservations we had about doing this were quickly alleviated when we arrived and checked in and saw there was a pack-and-play ready for her in our room. We also travelled with our dog; a water/ food bowl, treats, and a towel in case of rain (it didn't) were waiting for him. I'm happy to say we all slept well every night, in the incredibly comfortable king-size bed! Thank you for everything LBL--this was an experience we won't forget!
"Beyond Excellent!"
