You’ve probably already read the Best Western Kelowna Hotel’s blogs regarding all things green, so you know that we have a huge passion for sustainability and showing the Earth lots ‘o’ love. We’ve gone ahead and taken care of so many environmentally-friendly details for our guests, you may not even notice them when staying here. That’s ok, that’s how it should be! Being green is a natural way of life for our staff and every traveler should have a seamless stay from start to finish, without lacking anything just to travel green.
With travel restrictions making it next to impossible to always bring your fave shampoo and other beautifying products along for the trip, we’ve gone ahead and provide each of our guests with the opportunity to pamper themselves AND the Earth when staying at our hotel in Kelowna! In addition to low-flow shower heads, each guest bathroom offers a collection of goodies courtesy of PAYA Organics. A spa-inspired luxurious brand, the collection is made with certified organic ingredients and delivered in modern, sustainable packaging. The best little 3 ounce bottles that you will ever bring home from vacation, if they don’t get used up during your trip first!
After you’ve given your skin (and the planet) something to glow about, grab one of our luxurious bath towels and wrap yourself in goodness…green goodness! Our Kelowna hotel has chosen appliances that use minimal water in the wash cycle and then spin at 230 “G” force to extract more water and therefore save drying time. What does that mean? To name a few: Reduced air pollution, reduced energy usage, cost savings and most importantly, longer lasting quality linens and towels for our guests.
Now that you’re all green, clean and cozy, there’s only one thing to do to complete your sense of bliss and contentment: Make some tea! Every guestroom in our Kelowna hotel is stocked with a selection of MOTEAS for you to indulge in. Not only is the tea Organic Certified and Certified Fair Trade (and delicious), the bag itself is 100% biodegradable! Relax on your patio or balcony overlooking our 1 acre of green space while you drink it all in. Bliss complete.
The next time you stay at our hotel in Kelowna, check out all the little details we’ve taken care of that you may have overlooked before and enjoy! We like pampering our guests and the environment – you both deserve it!
