Even constantly jetsetting travel advisors need downtime with their families. And when they do, Resort to Laura Madrid looks no further than Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, where she spent time with her family.
“Clayoquotis perfect for a family like ours, that loves the idea of a luxurious outpost with so much to do, but also lots of time for camp-fire chats, hot tub time overlooking the bay, or cozy five-course dinners when they want it,” says Laura.
“Kids are treated exceptionally well, and are welcome to belly up to the bar and order whatever they would like to eat directly from Chef Ryan (also known to entertain them with some fantastic magic tricks or witty jokes). Each night, guests are encouraged to choose their next-day’s activities, which somehow the small team manages to personalize: does your daughter want to go riding; father and son deep-water fish; and mom wants to hike up to Penny Falls? No problem. All guests are assigned a staff member to escort them. Even the tented spa and hot tubs are a treat and every adult has one massage included.
“As for dining – breakfast might be crab, caramelized onion and avocado eggs benedict; lunch, a spicy fish taco stuffed with shrimp, scallops and fish; and dinner, a five-course tasting menu of barbecued salmon, pork ribs, tuna tartar, duck confit, roasted sable fish. And all of the wine pairings are local from British Columbia.
“So many of my clients travel far and wide to have a remote luxury experience in the wild,” Laura continues. ” For those short on time or who want such an experience closer to home, Clayoquotis a must and will most certainly elevate your senses and your expectations.”
