Walnut Beach Resort

Osoyoos, Rural British Columbia

The hotel

The hottest spot in Canada is home to one of its hottest lakeside hotels — the super-luxe Walnut Beach Resort. Along the private sands of Palapa Beach, which are washed by the waters of Lake Osoyoos, this design-conscious hotel looks out over the lake from its Sun Arbour Pool Terrace to its Vista Point Grill’s al fresco dining patio. Around the hotel, you’ve got glorious golf courses, family fun at Rattlesnake Canyon amusement and water park, snowsports in the distant mountains, and cultural centres and museums — but back at Walnut Beach Resort, it’s all about the water, whether you’re swimming in the lakefront pool, soaking in the two hot tubs, heading out for water sports from the hotel’s dock, or just dining with a lake view after cooking up a storm at the barbecue area, with its stainless steel grills.

The resort had good Covid restrictions and procedures in place, but were still able to provide excellent resort atmosphere and accommodate our needs. We had a great time and enjoyed the pool and hot tubs during our stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating and our suite was spacious and had everything we needed.

It was a fun place to choose, on the water, clean pool & hot tub. We were able to relax with one full kitchen and brought two meals with us to prep in the room It was a great time and wish that Covid wasn't as issue.

We have stayed at a number hotels in this area and this resort is the best. It truly feels like an exotic resort but is family friendly. The pool and hot tubs are well maintained as well as the beach. Food at the restaurant was delicious and well priced. We have already booked for next year

We enjoyed our 6 week stay at Walnut Beach. The staff was very courteous and friendly and the view is simply amazing. The pool and hot tubs were busy especially during covid but soon hopefully that will be behind us and everyone can enjoy these amenities without social distancing.
