The way we travel has changed, and that’s OK. While long-haul flights and far-flung vacations may not be in the cards for some time, we’re taking this time to explore closer-to-home destinations that are every bit as fabulous and fun. Case in point: Kelowna, where The Cove Lakeside Resort, located only four hours from Vancouver by car, offers British Columbians a luxurious retreat. Here are five reasons why. —Vita Daily
home away from home. Dreaming of tranquil garden surroundings, sweeping Okanagan Lake views and warm, contemporary luxury accommodations? These elements come together beautifully at The Cove Lakeside Resort to create the most unique and inviting accommodations in the Kelowna area. The 100 one-, two- and three-bedroom condo-style suites boast spacious floor plans that range from 700 square feet to 2,400 square feet, with fully equipped five-piece gourmet kitchens with wine fridges, plus upscale furnishings, living and dining areas and expansive balconies or terraces, all non-smoking and with complimentary parking and Wi-Fi (some suites are even dog friendly). The ambiance is warm, inviting and home-inspired—perfect for relaxing after a day of adventure in the Okanagan.
adventure awaits. If you hadn’t heard it before, Kelowna and the surrounding area provide ample opportunities to get out and explore, in all seasons! Go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing at Telemark Nordic Club or sip your way through wine country via the Westside Wine Trail (winter bonus: the “slow” season means more time in the tasting rooms). There’s also plenty of nearby hiking, plus world-class skiing at three resorts within an hour-and-a-half drive from The Cove Lakeside Resort.
on-site spa. Find your happy place at one of the most tranquil and scenic spa resort getaways in the Okanagan. The Spa at The Cove is a sanctuary within a sanctuary; inspired by views of Okanagan Lake and the lush Gellatly Gardens, it is a place for relaxation, replenishment and rejuvenation in a setting of natural splendor. The warm, intimate ambiance and breathtaking views bring a sense of peace that’s the perfect start or finish to a day of outdoor activity. Let the professional Aveda Spa staff tailor a personalized program of massages, hydrotherapy rituals, body treatments, beauty services and facials designed to soothe your mind, restore your body and reinvigorate your spirit.
covid-19 protocols. Situated in a secluded, private location along the shores of Okanagan Lake, the health, safety and security of team members, guests and the community is a top priority at The Cove Lakeside Resort. A “Book with Confidence” Cove Cares Commitment has been designed to enhance safety and to minimize risk for visitors and team members. It ensures that the hygiene and sanitation practices of the resort meet or exceed regulatory requirements and recommendations. This commitment also includes new cleanliness protocols that meet or exceed the resort’s already rigorous standards.
