Visitors to Ucluelet with a taste for high-end living can now stay cosy and comfortable in the lap of modern luxury. Way Point Resort has completed construction on the final five of its lavish lodges.These one and two bedroom accommodations nestled at the southern tip of Vancouver Island were consciously designed with guests in mind. Each lodge features upscale amenities such as breath-taking ocean views, open-concept kitchens, cosy fireplaces, private decks and direct beach access. And each interior’s design pays homage to Ucluelet First Nations culture and craftsmanship with unique house posts carved by resident artist Clifford George that lend each lodge its name (Eagle, Otter, Sea Lion, Salmon, Gray Whale, Raven, Thunderbird, Killer Whale and Harmony).
Wya Point’s lodges are also eco-friendly, as the resort is entirely “off the grid” and meet all Platinum LEED certifications with environmentally conscious touches such as low-flush toilets and low-wattage LED lights. All the timber was also harvested locally from traditional territory from western red cedar and was expertly carved by local craftsman.
The one and two bedroom lodges can accommodate two to six guests comfortably, each with square footage ranging from 650 to 2,100 square feet. Some additional resort perks include in-room executive chef services upon request, in-room massages and stand-up paddle board lessons just steps outside each lodge’s door.
