Kwa’lilas Hotel - A North Island First in Luxury Accommodation

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.

Relax | Rejuvenate | Reconnect

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.
