VICTORIA — Condé Nast Traveler has released its list of top hotels by country based on surveys completed by more than 800,000 Condé Nast users, with three Vancouver Island properties being the most highly viewed hotels and resorts in Canada for 2021.
The Oak Bay Beach Hotel was ranked number-1 in Condé Nast’s Top 12 Hotels in Canada, and ranked 19th in Condé Nast’s list of best hotels in the world. The hotel is known for its Tudor-style architecture, ocean-side mineral pool and luxurious guestrooms.
“We’re ecstatic,” says Madone Pelan, general manager at Oak Bay Beach Hotel. “It’s, of course, something we’ve always aspired to reach, but it was certainly a nice surprise at the end of such a challenging summer.”
In addition, the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino, B.C. was ranked number two in Condé Nast’s Top 10 Resorts in Canada 2021 followed by the Brentwood Bay Resort & Spa at number seven.
“It’s the people that make the place, and this recognition means so much to our team who continually strive to create and enhance magical experiences for our guests over the past 25 years,” says Charles McDiarmid, owner of the Wickaninnish Inn.
