Visited the resort for a couple of special birthdays. We're very impressed with the units - each had 2 couples staying together so having two bathrooms was really nice. The whole resort is very well maintained. The spa went the extra mile and brought in another girl so that all four of us ladies could have a facial done at the same time. The guys golfed and enjoyed the course. Talons was wonderful, a little pricey but food was great. Of course the winery has some of our favourite wines so that was a plus. Overall we had a wonderful time and would definitely go there again and would highly recommend it for a destination get-away

It's a lovely resort, but definitely not child friendly. When we arrived we were told of the restaurants that were open, but very few of them actually were. The golf course restaurant served burgers and hot dogs, but when we tried to eat supper we were told it stopped serving food at 3 pm. We then tried the Marketplace. It was also closed with no posted hours of service. After driving for 8 hours we had to go into town to eat supper and buy food for the following days. This was categorically unacceptable.

There was one restaurant we could have eaten at (Talons, I think) but we were told told to make a reservation. That does not sound child friendly but I can't say that for sure since we didn't eat there.

A lovely resort that is very comfortable, but buy food before you get there!

Stayed here with another couple in a 2 bedroom suite overlooking the golf course. The rooms were very well maintained and had a well equipped kitchen. We also very much enjoyed the use of an electric BBQ on the balcony. There is also a BBQ on the top of each building with a rooftop patio that we used one night as well. The roof top patios are a great place to relax with a group.
Pool area was clean, easy to get chairs and the water slide was great for kids.
The golf course is nice, and more of a workout then you expect as it is built into a mountain and you don't even realize how much you've climbed until your at the 18th hole.
The vineyards are lovely to walk through and the winery has some good wines to try, however there are many other wineries in the area as well and we tried many during our stay.
Staff were all friendly and helpful.

Hello Becky
Thank you so much for posting this incredible review of your stay at Spirit Ridge.
Spring is a pretty amazing time to see the colorful orchards and vineyards in Osoyoos & Oliver.
It certainly sounds like you were able to enjoy the many activities that the area offers including golf, recreation and wine tastings to name just a few.
We hope to have you back with us sometime soon.
Be sure to ask about our special return guest rate when making your booking.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite over-looking the first hole of Sonora Dunes golf course. The suite was well-appointed with a fully equipped kitchen, living room deck/balcony, washer & dryer, separate shower & tub and king sized bed. The room was immaculate, and cleaned each day of our 3 day stay. The décor is tasteful, but very dark colors (Had to have the lights on during the day!) The exercise room and pool area was close-by, clean and well-equipped with ellipticals, treadmills, free weights and a few weight machines. As this was a bit off-season, it was quiet and not crowded at all. There are two pool areas with hot tubs and exercise rooms, a mini-store. Also on site is the N'KMip winery, a spa, restaurants, and a tasting room. There is also a native interpretive centre which we did not visit. Staff are friendly and helpful. The location is great with many other wineries, nearby. It is close to Osoyoos and nearby restaurants and stores and other services.

We stayed there in December 2013. The room was quite big with a lovely living room, an open kitchen with dining table, a bedroom with a big washroom. The kitchen was well equipped so we made dinner and breakfast there. There were a big supermarket nearby with fresh meat and vegetables. There was a balcony with BBQ stove but it's too cold to cook outside. Our balcony was facing the swimming pool and the vineyards. It was a very nice vineyard scene covered with snow. The winery next to the reception had quite some nice wines. The staff were nice. We originally planned to stay for 1 night only but the apartment was so nice that we stayed 1 more night. There are parking lots so you could drive there.

We love Spirit Ridge's ambiance and the relaxation we get from just a few days at the resort. The views, the quiet rooms, the comfortable beds, the full kitchen that allows us to dine in and enjoy our Nk'Mip wines.....it's all bliss :)

My wife and I decided to visit here for our wedding anniversary weekend. We spent Easter long weekend at resort, it is out standing. Room we stayed was very clean and spacious, we we even kept our bikes in the room. The patio has very nice view and BBQ, so we could cook own meal one night. The restaurant in resort is outstanding, we had best meal for our dinner and Easter Sunday branch. No one will be disappointed to eat here.

Over all, this is the best weekend gat away for us.
