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 private beach and pool are a nice addition and while the rooms are looking a bit worn, having in room laundry and full kitchen make it easy to spend multiple days here economically. Price in shoulder was more than expected but being away from the downtown core of Osoyoos is worth the extra dollars. Read less

Great to have bedroom separate. Bed very comfortable. Quiet location (mountain view) with a slice of lake view. Small patio was nice. Kitchen fairly well equipped . Too bad smoke from the south prevented us from using the lake and pool facilities . Maybe on our next trip we can use more of what Walnut Beach Resort has to offer.

for the price that I paid, expected much more for the room. hallways were filthy, furniture looked used and beat up. for 700.00 a night was looking forward to a better experience. staff at the front desk were friendly and the hotel itself seems like its in a good location. it could be so much more with a little more attention to detail.

The resort’s location and amenities as well as the staff made this vacation a wonderful experience. Our studio room was perfect for our stay and I would highly recommend Walnut Beach Resort for your next vacation.
