This is a delightfully modern hotel that has a real sense of place thanks to its locally-inspired design.

Port Hardy is the gateway to the inlets and islands of the Broughton archipelago and British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest. You’ll need a comfortable base to head out on your multiple-night wildlife-seeking adventures and the Kwa'Lilas Hotel, which translates to ‘a place to sleep’, is just that. Although it’s a wonderfully modern hotel, there’s a real focus on the region’s ancient First Nations culture. The onsite restaurant Ha’me’ has a menu full of dishes inspired by the Aboriginal tastes and flavours and elders share their stories over a drink at the hotel’s bar, Nax’id.
