THE WILDLIFE ISN’T AT YOUR BECK AND CALL, BUT WE CERTAINLY ARE. Enjoy outstanding seasonal menus featuring local ingredients. In fact, our Executive Chef often forages the nearby wilderness for seasonal delicacies like ripe berries and wild mushrooms. The dishes we serve tell incredible stories about the Pacific West Coast through flavours, textures, and colours. Of course, you can choose to accompany each bite with a sip of something wonderful from the well-stocked cellar. Chat with the sommelier about which wines will pair beautifully to take your gastronomic experience to new heights. This Relais & Châteaux resort is truly something to call home about – and yes, international phone calls are complimentary.
