This is a beautiful resort, inside and out - it is a bit out of the way (45+ minutes from Kelowna, 25 minutes from Vernon) but adjacent to Predator Ridge Golf Course & great for a long weekend getaway, etc. There are beautiful crystals everywhere, the small details were amazing. We were lucky enough to have one of the few corner suites, that allowed us almost a 180 degree view of the lake and the mountains (& golf course) and was very clean and in good condition. The spa was fantastic, beautiful surroundings, very organized - excellent Global Massage from Dean! Many unique & unusual amenities, such as a cold sauna, tea room, serenity room, etc. Would advise that you book spa appointment well ahead of arriving, as we would probably have had a 2nd service, but it was booked up.
The service was over all very good, Front Desk employees in particular were excellent, very helpful & friendly with check in, suggestions, golf club check, etc. The employees were in general very friendly and efficient, with only 1 or 2 exceptions. A suggestion might be more clear signage for 1st time guests pulling up as to where to pull in, as we didn't realize at first that we were supposed to drive through the stanchions, and the bellperson/valet seemed a bit disturbed that we didn't do it properly...
The food in the restaurant was quite good, and the menu changed every day, which was nice, as there aren't a lot of options nearby except for Predator Ridge, unless you drive for over 20 minutes to Vernon (one way). Breakfast buffet was excellent, included in the room price and great selection as well as service. Dinner service was good but very leisurely, both times we had dinner in the dining room it took about 2 hours, even with only two courses, but again the small touches such as amuse bouche and the treats with coffee were great.
We will definitely recommend this resort to friends & family, especially for a relaxing weekend getaway, anniversaries, etc.
