Looking for a Wine Getaway?
Think West Kelowna
Known as the ‘Napa of the North,’ the Okanagan Valley is an immensely popular destination for travellers seeking the wine tour experience. While cities like Oliver, Osoyoos and Naramata have been longstanding favourites, our hotel in West Kelowna wants visitors to know that the city boasts many world-class wineries that are waiting to be discovered.
West Kelowna has many internationally acclaimed estate wineries that you’re probably already familiar with, such as:
It also features some smaller boutique wineries that are impressive in their own right, including:
Booking Hotels and Okanagan Wine Tours Together
One of the easiest ways to experience a wine tour is to book one as part of your accommodation. Many hotels in West Kelowna offer packages that include guided tours of some of the area’s top wineries.
These packages are particularly useful if you’re unfamiliar with the area, or you don’t want to spend a lot of time researching the surrounding wineries. Also, guests are picked up and dropped off right from the hotel, meaning you never have to argue over who gets to be the designated driver.
Soak up the Countryside from Your West Kelowna Hotel
When you’re not out sampling Rieslings, merlots and cab sav’s, you can always kick back at your hotel and simply admire panoramic views of the countryside and nearby Okanagan Lake.
Make It a Romantic Getaway
The idyllic setting of the Okanagan Valley makes it the perfect place for lovers in search of a romantic weekend together. Mix in some chocolate, an Okanagan wine tour and a private Jacuzzi and you have the makings of a truly memorable getaway.
Golf and Wine Are the Perfect Pairing
Next to wine, if there’s one thing the Okanagan is renowned for, it’s golf…and skiing, hiking, fishing, boating…OK, we’re known for a lot, but let’s stick with golf.
For a town of its size (West Kelowna has a population of just over 32,000), we are blessed to have a trio of world-class golf courses right in our backyard, including:
The latter is just across the street from our hotel!
If you take the William R. Bennett Bridge to Kelowna (about a 15-minute drive), you’ll find a dozen more courses for your enjoyment. You could easily spend your time in West Kelowna flitting between golf courses and wineries. It’s a good thing our hotel has comfy pillow-top beds because you’ll need some time to relax with such a hectic schedule.
