Summer as it should be in Osoyoos, BC

Finding just the place to spend your vacation is getting more complicated with border delays and too many choices. More and more Zoomers are discovering why Walnut Beach Resort on the sandy shore of Lake Osoyoos in the Okanagan region of British Columbia is quickly becoming known as the best resort in the Okanagan and a great choice for summer vacations with the whole family.

Once known for orchards and caravans, the Okanagan region has evolved into a year round hot spot with over 45 sophisticated wineries, brand new resorts offering designer suites, memorable restaurants, and of course year-round golf. It is one of the few places in the world where you can spend your morning exploring world renowned vineyards, and the afternoon taking a dip in Canada’s warmest lake.

Perhaps the best choice for a summer vacation is Walnut Beach Resort. The resort specifically caters to the family audience with large suites featuring a gourmet’s dream kitchen, making it easy for you to bring your extended family for a getaway that everyone will enjoy. Designer suites include a kitchen right out of a magazine that will inspire the chef in one of you to create a feast paired with local wines. They also encourage local events and plenty of poolside fun with one of the most spectacular pools in the region, overlooking both the lake and the mountains. Special early booking savings of up to 20% make summer vacations surprisingly affordable.

“We’ve only been open for 2 years, but already we see repeat clientele – each year bringing a few more family to join them,” explains Don Brogan, General Manager, Walnut Beach Resort. “It’s not everyday that a new luxury resort offers families such an affordable price” explains Brogan. When asked what resort guests have to say at the end of their stay, he smiled and replied “when it finally hits them that they must go home, they quickly reserve the same dates for next year, and then swap email addresses with the other guests who have become friends during their stay”.

Its magnificent locale, private sandy beach and unique ability to offer seasonally inspired outdoor activities make this property a must-visit. I found the resort’s 112 designer suites exceeded even my expectations, complete with classic tile floor, top-thread-count linens and flat screen TVs. The three-story building is set on a meticulously landscaped property that wraps around a half acre courtyard featuring relaxing hot tubs, a refreshing pool and the extensive Sun Arbour Pool Deck, ideal for soaking up rays year round in the destination that gets the most hours of sun in Canada.

Another reason the destination is such a hit for family gatherings is the ease of access. Direct flights from most major Canadian destinations will bring you to either Penticton or Kelowna without the hassle of US Customs. A short picturesque drive brings you to Lake Osoyoos.

If you go, be sure to ask about upgrading to a suite with a fireplace and pack comfortable shoes to explore the Okanagan region. Call your family and start a new tradition by reserving your place in Canada’s warmest climate!
