Spotlight on Walnut Beach Resort, Osoyoos
This fun, family resort sits on the shores of warm Osoyoos Lake and offers beautiful accommodations and great amenities for everyone to enjoy!
Pack the sunscreen and a good book: it’s time to let the Okanagan recharge your batteries.
Imagine sipping a glass of British Columbia Pinot Grigio while watching the milky-white clouds in an otherwise blue sky. Toddlers giggle as they splash in the pool. The late-afternoon sunlight shimmers against the cool water while bathing you in glorious warmth.
Family vacations are full of moments that are simple yet unforgettable, especially in a place like this. Walnut Beach Resort is an upscale beach hotel that is peaceful and family focused – a well suited place for your brood to enjoy themselves in comfort.
Your energetic little ones will find a beach to explore, a pool to jump into and plenty of other children to play with. Adventure-seeking teens can rent jet skis and explore the warmest lake in Canada. For the grownups, there’s a full-service spa, an elegant wine bar, nearby golf courses and some of the best wineries in British Columbia within a short drive.
Choose from a “Red” or “White” suite and enjoy the conveniences of being able to cook in your private kitchen or al fresco on the communal barbeques poolside. Also, the location is within close proximity to many of the Okanagan’s best agri-tourism attractions.
Roam through dozens of nearby vineyards or simply relax by the lake or pool. Rest and relaxation come easy at the Walnut Beach Resort.
1. SUITES WITH THE QUALITIES OF FINE WINE
Relax in these cool suites along a hot stretch of shoreline.
The units at Walnut Beach are wine-themed, a playful nod to the excellent viticulture that the Okanagan region has to offer. Each of the different types of suites are named after a different type of wine, which gives you a sense of the thought and creativity that went into their design.
The one bedroom suites are the “Whites”, with simple and elegant décor in light neutral tones and pale wood accents – such as in the sleekly-designed Chardonnay Studio Suite. The “Reds” are the two bedroom suites, offering a “full bodied” experience and indulgent details such as designer countertops and high thread count linens.
For example, the Merlot Two Bedroom Suite is one of the most luxurious units in the hotel with a large balcony overlooking the lake and ensuite bathrooms in both bedrooms. Enjoy gazing out over the tranquil expanse of blue water from your balcony.
Whether you are in the mood for Red or White, each room is equipped with a fully functioning kitchen with pots and pans, a stove, dishes, a refrigerator, dishwasher and a microwave. Gather the family around to watch a movie on your large flat-screen television or chill out with your favourite tunes on the MP3 player. The designers of the suites thought ahead to everything that you might need during your stay, including a coffee maker, a hair dryer, an ironing board and even complimentary cribs and infant beds to make things easier for parents of little ones.
For an even more exquisite experience, take a look at the Vinters and Sommelier Penthouse Suites. These accommodations offer a spacious terrace and oversized corner bedrooms with stunning views in every direction. They have plenty of stylish space to entertain, so you can enjoy an Osoyoos trip with the full extended family.
2. FAMILY FUN AND POOLSIDE PAMPERING
The water is warm, so go ahead and jump right in.
The main attraction at Walnut Beach Resort is, of course, the beautiful Lake Osoyoos. The water-side lawn chairs and umbrellas on the hotel’s private beach and dock create a relaxing place to lounge. Walnut Beach Resort also has a heated swimming pool and two Jacuzzis.
The swimming pool is a popular spot where families can relax and have a cold drink while watching the children frolic in the water. And because the resort is positioned with southern-facing exposure, you will be bathed in warm rays for most of the day. The views of the sun going down over the lake from the deck are especially gorgeous.
The resort also has a spa, Secret Oasis, which offers a number of high quality treatments including hot stone massage, Swedish massages and aromatherapy. There is a tapas and wine bar onsite, or you can use your private kitchen or the communal barbeques to prepare your own meals.
3. AMPLE OKANAGAN ATTRACTIONS NEARBY
Sun-drenched Osoyoos is ripe with opportunities to have a great time.
Walnut Beach Resort has its own private beach, so you can wade or swim in the incredibly soothing waters. Lake Osoyoos is the warmest lake in Canada and this resort is very popular with water sports enthusiasts. Float mats, paddle boards, jet skis and power boats are available for rent on the private beach at the resort.
Walnut Beach Resort is only a short distance away from several popular Osoyoos attractions, including Haynes Point Provincial Park, Pioneer Walkway and Rattlesnake Canyon. It is also conveniently positioned close to Nk’Mip Cellars and Anarchist Mountain Lookout.
Agri-tourism is also another popular activity for guests. Stroll through an apple orchard, pick a basket of juicy strawberries, learn about honeybee farming or watch how local syrups and jams are made.
There are also five championship golf courses all within a 30-minute drive, including Sonora Dunes Golf Course only 2 kilometres away and Osoyoos Golf and Country Club 4 kilometres away. Golf is a major passion in this region, due to the beauty of the courses set within the rugged landscapes and the unusually long playing season from March to November.
Walnut Beach Resort is also a perfect jumping off point for wine tours of the Thompson Okanagan region, where you will find more than 45 of the best wineries in British Columbia. Talk to the concierge about organizing a leisurely afternoon of wine tasting on a tour through these lush vineyards. You’ll also be staying on a designated pick up point on the “OK Wine Shuttle,” which is a service that connects the hotels of Osoyoos to selected wineries on a hop-on hop-off route.
In the winter, the snowy mountains of the South Okanagan region have excellent light-champagne powder, great weather and incredible terrain. Mount Baldy is only 40 minutes away from Walnut Beach Resort and offers an annual snowfall of over 20 feet.
