There’s a reason we keep returning to BC’s southern town, Osoyoos, it has a lot to do with the world-class resorts, amazing restaurants, and family-fun activities. Here’s a look at an Osoyoos getaway that’s perfect for your family.
Spirit Ridge at Nk’Mip Resort is a retreat like no other in the Okanagan and once you stand on your suite’s balcony, facing the Cascade mountains as they glow with the golden hues of the sunset, you’ll know it to be true.
Spirit Ridge provides you with condos, suites, or villas and a variety of views to favor, such as Osoyoos Lake or Anarchist Mountain. Each type of stay allows you to enjoy access to the outdoor heated pool, hot tub and steam room area, fire cauldron, rooftop observation deck, beach shuttle, and cardio studio.
The onsite restaurant, The Bear The Fish The Root The Berry, is a bucket list-worthy experience with a menu that takes inspiration from the Indigenous roots of the Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation.
Centered around the four food chiefs, items like Sage Basted Elk Loin and The “Burnt” Quail, will have your mouth watering to try something new. Don’t forget to start with Bannock, this elevated dish is great for sharing and comes with various delicious spreads for dipping.
