Find out why travellers love staying at hotels in Kelowna during the winter season.

Now that a light coat of snow has dusted the trees and created a winter wonderland scene, the excitement of the upcoming holiday season is in the air. Hot chocolate, comfy winter clothing, twinkling Christmas lights, and cozy hotel rooms are just a few of our favourite things. If you’re coming to the Okanagan to catch up with family or friends, you may want to consider staying at one of the many hotels in Kelowna after going through the list we’ve compiled.


1. Hot Tubs and Hot Pools

When the weather outside is frightful, hot tubs and pools are so delightful! When you stay at a Kelowna hotel, you can take advantage of outdoor hot tubs and indoor heated pools. No matter what the temperature is outside, you can rest assured that the temperature in either of these two soak-worthy spots will be hot enough to warm up frozen fingers and toes.


2. Warm and Cozy Hotel Rooms

After a day of exploring in the frigid, winter air, it’s important to have a warm and inviting space to return to. With extra pillows and down-filled comforters, some hotels in Kelowna know exactly how to warm you up. Because of the built-in personal thermostats, you can have your room as warm (or as cool) as you’d like it. For extra warmth and comfort, think about booking a jetted tub suite. If you don’t feel like heading outside to soak in a hot tub, you can sit in your own private tub, sipping local Kelowna wine and taking in the views of the city. There’s no better way to warm up and unwind than in the comfort of your own space.


3. Cool Winter Activities

Kelowna is home to Big White, a world-class ski hill. You can ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or sled. Pick your own adventure, and enjoy the bright sun, the crisp air, and the beautiful scenery.

If you’re not interested in travelling up to the skill hill, head over to Stuart Park in downtown Kelowna. Located right next to Okanagan Lake, you can take in stunning views while working on your ice skating techniques. Don’t know how to skate? Come down anyway. With Christmas trees and a glowing polar bear, the festive feel will bring a smile to your face and warm up your insides.


4. Enticing Entertainment

If spending time in the great outdoors during the winter months isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry. Kelowna is home to a plethora of cool indoor entertainment venues. Head over to Prospera Place and watch the Kelowna Rockets crush their competitors. Wander over to Orchard Park Shopping Centre and get your Christmas shopping out the way. Or take the family over to the H2O Centre and spend the afternoon reliving water activities you thought you could only do during the summer. Whatever you’re in the mood for, there’s a venue for that.


5. Free Breakfast!

Spoil yourself every morning during your stay at hotels in Kelowna with a free breakfast.  Not only will you be served an amazing breakfast, you won’t have to do any dishes! Now you can really sit back, relax, and enjoy the winter season in Kelowna.
