Experience Tofino

Tin Wis resort is owned and operated by Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation. Tla-o-qui-aht Nation (TFN) – pronounced klaw-oh-kwee-awt, occupies Meares Island, Tofino, Long Beach and stretches as far as Sutton Pass. This beautiful region is home to incredible cultural influence and an indigenous community of skilled fisherman, master carvers, talented artists, and culturally refined and skilled singers and dancers.

We continue to work together with Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation and Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks to maintain cultural integrity, build a strong community and continue economic development through collaboration and partnership.

We encourage all visitors to Tofino to take the ʔiisaak pledge by visiting the Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks website here.

Great location with phenomenal views of the Pacific Ocean

“Our third floor room offered a fantastic view of Mackenzie Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The cold, clear weather we had offered stunning sunsets every evening. The beach was moments away.

great views, great service

“Tin Wis looks over Mackenzie Beach just outside Tofino and every room has a window wall facing the ocean. With the sliding door open, the sound of the waves at night is hypnotic; and the afternoon sun and sunset make sitting on the small patio a transcendent experience, even in late October. The Long Beach area is a hiker’s dream and, after a day walking the beaches and trails, Tin Wis is a welcoming and elegant destination.”
