The Unique Experience
Fogo Island Inn Canada – 4.5 Stars
You will likely never stay in a hotel quite like The Fogo Island Inn.
The Fogo Island Inn was designed by Newfoundland-born, Norway-based architect Todd Saunders, and is perched on stilts along the vast and beautiful North Atlantic coastline.
The design is so intricate that all suites have floor-to-ceiling views of both the sea and sky and are sound proofed so that the only noise you hear will be the ocean waves outside.
The hotel also has it’s very own 37 seat cinema as well as a library, gym and two rooftop hot tubs for you to relax and view the ocean during the day and stargaze at night.
