Kwa'lilas Hotel -A north island first in luxury accommodation

Relax | Rejuvenate | Reconnect

KEDC redeveloped and launched the Kwa’lilas Hotel in the spring of 2017. It’s the region’s premier First Nations-owned, operated, and themed four-star destination hotel, offering high-end amenities and services for North Island visitors and residents.

The Kwa’lilas Hotel (meaning a ‘place to sleep’ in the local Kwak̓wala language) features a curated selection of authentic local Indigenous art, celebrating local traditions, stories, and culture. Hotel guests can also choose to participate in a selection of eco-adventure tours and cultural experiences guided by community members and local guides.

Immerse yourself in all the beauty tourism in Vancouver Island’s North Region has to offer and experience the rich culture and history of the Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw People that’s prominently displayed throughout the hotel and in our gallery.

Enjoy an early morning coffee at the Kwa’lilas Cafe or relax and unwind in one of the two on-site restaurants while relishing an amazing selection of drinks and our delicious freshly curated dishes, inspired by local ingredients and First Nations flavors.
