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
Took a trip with the grandchildren and this place was perfect. The town is on the quiet side, but the resort is on the beach and has a pool that the children loved. Though spring had just started, the water was comfortable.
Spent 9 days at the Watermark and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The condo was beautifully appointed and had all the items necessary, including robes, to just relax and enjoy. Waking up to the lakeview was wonderful and the heated pool was great. Even though the temperature was in the 50's, the water was perfect and I utilized the pool every day. Front desk personnel, Kelly, was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. She immediately assisted me in obtaining a kayak to use around the lake and was always willing to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Went on a wine tasting tour of multiple wineries and all were very different and fun to learn and visit.
We stayed two nights in this superb resort. It is a modern resort that is located on the beach front. Secure car parking is under the resort. The reception staff were engaging and extremely helpful. They immediately made us feel like valued customers and that nothing was too much trouble.
Our room overlooked the lake and provided us with an unbelievable amount of space. There was a large and well equipped kitchen, a separate dining area, a spacious and comfortable sitting area, large bathroom and large balcony with an additional table and chairs. The bed was comfortable and the shower amazing.
The restaurant only caters for diner but it is possible to pre order breakfast to prepare yourself in your room. You have to order before a set time the night before. Breakfast was good and we were disappointed on the second night of our stay because this facility was not available due to a lack of kitchen staff.
The resort is spotlessly clean, all furnishing and decoration is of a very high quality. It was such an amazing stay and we asked if we could extend our stay but it was not possible.
I have no difficulty in recommending this resort. I just have to find the right reason to return!!
