December 28, 2017

Winter Kelowna Staycation

Plan your winter getaway at a Kelowna hotel that offers spa services such as a relaxing massage.

Christmas tends to be the time of year where we overextend our bodies, minds and budgets. Many of us feel burned out this time of year. Whether it’s wrapping up work projects or presents or dealing with the revolving door of visitors or the cooking of massive feasts, we all deserve a vacation from the holidays.

Don’t have the funds to spend a week at some Mexican or Vegas resort? Why not stay close to home by booking into your favourite Kelowna hotel for a winter staycation.

Staying close to home has many benefits. Here are 3 reasons why:


1. You don’t have to lift a finger

Yes, you heard it here. When you book into one of the hotels Kelowna recommends, you can sit back and relax. Imagine not having to cook or clean; all your needs are catered to. To make the most of your staycation, look for hotels that offer:

  • Full housekeeping services
  • Complimentary hot breakfast
  • Room service
  • Pub or restaurant on premises


2. You can make it a spa-cation

Do you miss sleeping through the night? Want those tense muscles to melt away? Looking for hotels in Kelowna with spa jetted tubs is one way to relax from Christmastime stress. It’s also not a bad idea to find a hotel that offers spa packages, where you can book a massage or other kind of relaxation treatment as part of your winter getaway. The benefits of massage include:

  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Reduces muscular tension
  • Causes the body to instantly relax
  • Relieves pain from headaches


3. You can join in on the festivities

While some residents are looking for a getaway from the everyday, some may prefer to stay put in their Kelowna hotel suites while others may be looking for fun things to do. Luckily, Kelowna is a perfect outdoors and indoors winter destination. The city offers a number of attractions and events at this time of year. For outdoor experiences, why not consider:

  • Ice skating at Stuart Park on Kelowna’s waterfront
  • Alpine skiing at Big White Ski Resort
  • Cross-country skiing at Telemark Nordic Club 
  • Snowshoeing at the Kettle Valley Railway Trail

For indoor fun:

  • Taste a local beverage at one of Kelowna’s many craft microbreweries/cideries/wineries
  • See the latest exhibition at the Kelowna Art Gallery
  • Watch a flick at the Landmark Cinemas
  • Catch a show at the Kelowna Community Theatre
  • Shop at Orchard Park Mall
