Just spent a weekend at the Spirit Ridge Resort. This was our third stay at the resort. The hotel is great for couples, families, groups. The amenities are great. There's a swimming pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna and small water slide for the pool. The rooms have full kitchens and a good size living room. The check-in/out was smooth and easy. The front desk gave us 4 room keys so we all had a key to the room to make it easy. The location is easy to find but not right in town. It's a little bit up the hill and off the main road but only a few minutes by car to get just about anywhere in Osoyoos. We didn't try the winery this time but did the tour previously and it was good.

My wife and I stayed at Spirit Ridge for 5 nights to attend a wedding over the last weekend in September. We booked a 1 bedroom and we were located in the” Lavender” building.
Check-in was nice and easy and all the info was explained to in a professional manner. I have been to the resort before so had a good lay of the land.
Room was nice and had a great view of the lake. We were on the 4th floor, the top level courtyard. We had a nice kitchen, living room, separate bedroom and large bathroom. Things felt a little cramped and I think a little too much furniture was in the room. The bed (king) was nice and comfy but perhaps they could have gone with just a headboard and not a footboard as the posts made it very cramped and hard to walk around. Bathroom was nice and big with separated tub and shower and was very clean. The kitchen was fully functional but was missing lots of the standard items they had listed on a sheet posted on the inside of a cupboard. Not an issue, quick call and someone came quickly with the item. The room was clean but I think it needed a deep clean and perhaps a little TLC as it was showing its age. We were a little surprised that our room was made up only once in 5 nights. We didn’t care too much about having our bed made every day but when paying a pretty penny, one should expect this service. We did have to call for towels and they were prompt to bring them.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t all that spectacular so the pool time, courtyard pool, was limited but we did hit the hot tub and it was enjoyable. Could have been a wee bit hotter one of the days but it was nice and large and had great powerful jets.
The café right by the pool was great for a quick snack and a cup of joe.
I went to the gym twice during our stay. I used the one closest to the main courtyard pool as there are 2 fitness facilities. Small but did the trick. 2 treadmills, 2 elliptical, fitness ball, mat, a universal machine and free weights up to 50lbs. Tough to do floor exercises when more than 3 people in the room. Water cooler and towels were plenty the first time but no towels the second time and water cooler was almost dry. I guess I was up earlier than the staff!
We visited the winery and did a tasting. The Nk’Mip wines are nice but haven’t heard from many that they are exceptional. My wife thought they were nice but not over the moon. We purchased a bottle of red, “Talon”.
We ate at the main restaurant “Mica”. We both had a simple pasta and were satisfied. Nice but also, not over the moon.
On one of the rainier days, we went to the Native Cultural Center and watched a live snake show in the theater. The young lady was great and was very knowledgeable. The rattler “Goliath” was the star of the show!
Hit the golf course, Sanora Dunes twice for 2-9 hole rounds. What an awesome little course. Some may call it an executive but because the fairways are pretty narrow, it plays pretty close to a full size difficulty. One par 5, shorter par 4s and regular par 3s. Course is very well maintained, even better than some of the much, much more $$$ tracks I have played lately! Look on their site for hole in ones, Pete from our group hit one on hole 8!
As mentioned, we were there for a wedding and the venues associated we attended were great! Unfortunately with the weather, the rooftop was cancelled and moved indoors. The reception was at the Conference Center and was perfect! We even had a meet and greet in the winery itself, right in the basement amongst all the vats and piping. Pretty neat!
I’m sure my review would have been slightly different if the weather cooperated more but I do think the resort needs to pull up its socks a wee bit. The rooms and hallways are showing age and there just isn’t that higher-end feeling with the staff and services. I rate the whole resort a 7/10, just barely a B-

We came to Spirit Ridge to attend a family wedding and enjoyed a very nice weekend. The hotel consists of various buildings so it can be somewhat confusing, but the staff provide you with maps to guide you. The restaurant deck includes a great view of the vineyards and the lake. The rooms are well equipped and include kitchens but their floor plans were confusing and we found the doors hit each other when you opened and closed them. The staff are friendly and the food was adequate. Our room had a view of the first fairway on the 9 hole golf course that is part of the resort...not the best view and dangerous to sit on the deck when they are teeing off!

We have stayed here twice now and really like this resort and this area of the Okanagan! We also like the wines they make here-in particular the 2008 Merlot if you can get your hands on any. Don't forget to indulge in a gustation and try to get on a wine tour.

Although the location is lovely, the amenities are good, and the rooms are nice, we were quite disappointed with the housekeeping. When we arrived in our room, there were bits of garbage on the floor and noticeable splatter on the walls and light switches. The bathtub was definitely grungy. On our second day, we returned to our room after the housekeeper had been in to tidy up. However, wet towels were left on the bathroom floor, and bed pillows were left on the bedroom floor (see photos). Not at all what one expects for a hotel which claims to be 4 + star hotel which charges accordingly.

I'm not a fan of the design of the property overall, due to the presence of a driveway/road which cuts right through, requiring you to walk across it or along it to get from your building to any other area such as the pool or the restaurant. It detracts from any "resort" feel, and makes you feel as though you're at a motel.

If you are looking for a higher end hotel in the area with the service to match, I would suggest going up the road a bit and staying at Burrowing Owl.

All the rooms have a fully equipped kitchen. There are 2 pools, 2 exercise rooms, 2 hot tubs. There is winery on the property that has many excellent wines with its own restaurant. There is also another excellent restaurant with a patio overlooking the pool, vineyard and Lake Osoyoos. There are great golf courses within a 15 minute drive including 2 courses right in Osoyoos. All the courses are very scenic and in fantastic shape. There are also several tremendous restaurants in the area such as Burrowing Owl and Miradoro at Tinhorn Creek. There are many excellent wineries just between Osoyoos and Oliver. We are returning for another visit next month. (October 2013)

The 4.5-star Spirit Ridge at Nk'Mip Resort celebrates its natural desert cultural landscape.Our accommodation is a 226-condominium 1, 2 & 3-bedroom style hotel nestled between Anarchist Mountain and Lake Osoyoos.

The Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre is a hub of information on the Okanagan people where you can immerse yourself in Aboriginal Events and cultural ceremonies. The Nk'Mip Cellars are an award-winning vineyard and winery, right on the Resort. They provide in depth tours and daily wine tastings. Just down the hill is the Nk'Mip RV Park and Campground, a year-round heated playground for an active Snowbird Community. In the summer, there is a Cantina on the Lake where you can take a water taxi across to town - or invite friends to you. The challenging 9-hole Sonora Dunes golf course has a clubhouse (opening year-round shortly) and Pro Shop. The view from the tee boxes envelop the backdrop of the rugged mountain, the Lake below and a beautiful scene of the Spirit Ridge adobe-style buildings dotted with wrought iron icons, native to the area. We have a full service spa on site Solterra Desert Spa who are open year-round, waiting to pamper locals and visitors alike. Our resort weddings are becoming legendary. Photo opportunities exist from every viewpoint with the spectacular vineyard stretching out like arms to the sun, up the hill. Meander between wild desert sage, catch a glimpse of a wild herd of horses, laze in one of our outdoor pools or hot tub and wonder, "why didn't I get here sooner".
