A cross between a condo development and a resort, this lakefront retreat in the popular Okanagan Valley offers a huge array of diversions, from full-day culinary excursions to wake boarding, along with pools, a full service spa, and fitness center. Suites and beachfront villas are large and self-contained, with full kitchens and indoor/outdoor dining areas. At the Wine Bar and Patio, tuck into treats like the charcuterie plate filled with meats and cheeses from local suppliers paired with acclaimed wines from the Okanagan Valley. Chill out at the Illumination Spa, which offers everything from Chakra massages to reflexology.
In the Area
Take advantage of the resort’s “Signature Experience,” a guided farm tour via a vintage 1952 Mercury truck through Canada’s only pocket desert, visiting organic fields and vineyards. You’ll visit the country market and wine shop at Covert Farms in the valley’s south before heading back to the Wine Bar and Patio where local wines are paired with farm-fresh dishes. Explore Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country, a group of 31 grape growers and wine makers in the Okanagan Valley. If hitting the fairway is a priority, head to Sonora Dunes golf course, overlooking Nk’mip Winery and the shores of Osoyoos Lake.
How to Get There
Spent a few days at this hotel/resort late summer/early fall this year and enjoyed the ambiance of a waterfront location combined with small town appeal and friendly service. Lobby is a bit crowded and navigating through parking lot etc is a challenge ,Plan to return every year.
Friendly and professional staff. Excellent location. We were given a one bedroom suite complete with a full kitchen. The suite was very clean and extremely comfortable. We would definitely recommend the resort.
No WiFi and No TV - staff not able to resolve and no discount was offered. Disappointing as I have stayed there in the past and service was better. The staff was friendly but not trained or skilled at fixing the issues.
My daughter and I were on a road trip and stopped at the Watermark without a reservation. The front desk staff (Kelly) was friendly and welcoming and had us checked in within minutes. We had a corner, 2 BR suite overlooking Osoyoos Lake and the mountains. The view was breath-taking, the weather was comfortable for that time of year and we enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing night in this charming little town. There`s a Boston Pizza on the premises which is very convenient, and a liqour store across the street with a great selection of local wines. There`s also a walking path along the lake for a casual stroll.
This is a top notch accommodation.you may choose i,2 bedroom or studio suites,lake view or city view.there is a large heated pool,a small hot pool and a hot tub out doors-there is a well equipped gym and spa-lots of secure underground parking-one fine dining room featuring tapas all produced locally in the south Okanagan and Similkameen valleys.also an attached Boston Pizza accessable from the second floor and street level-many excellent wineries within a short drive .the world famous "golden mile"vineyards within 10 kilometers-the Watermark is just a great facility.
