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
Over all a great ski & stay experience - the room was lovely and well appointed, we had excellent service at the restaurant, and the staff we met were all very accommodating, helpful and happy - always a sign of a good operation. Only downside was the sauna took a little too long to heat up, but the steam room was a good second option.
We arrived very late doe to flight delays. Night reception a bit disinterested and not wanting to answer basic questions. We were very tired and asked about best route to Baldy Ski Resort and she did not know? We had purchased a stay and ski package.??
We were given a 2 bedroom unit, only booked a one, so extra space not needed. Used it to store luggage. Room was warm, clean and comfortable great bed very comfy.
Restaurant interesting, we arrived at 7.30 to an empty restaurant to be advised the Sunday 3 course special had sold out, not sure to who, but the meal was spectacular when did order it. A big plus,.
All in all a good stay.
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.
