Kelowna hotel hot tubs

Soaking in a hot tub is a great way to relax when staying at Kelowna hotels and resorts.

Travelling is always an exciting experience, but a long journey can sometimes leave you feeling a little on the tired side. Fortunately, if you’ve booked your stay at one of the Kelowna hotels and resorts in the area, there are ways you can unwind after a travel day.

Whether you’re on the road for business or pleasure, and whether you’re arriving by plane or by car, it’s nice to know you can find ways to relax and restore your sense of well being.


1. Pamper Yourself

Spa treatments are becoming more and more common at Kelowna hotels and resorts, and certain ones offer an exceptional level of service. For instance, the Wellness Spa, located onsite at BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites, offers a number of choices for beauty and spa treatments, delivered by highly trained specialists.

Some of the options include:

  • Facials and skincare
  • Massage
  • Waxing
  • Spa treatments
  • Hand and feet
  • Tinting

Many of these treatments help rejuvenate and stimulate the systems of the body. It’s just the thing to relieve those sore, tired muscles after a long day of travelling.

2. Work up a Sweat

After being cooped up all day inside your car, or in the cramped confines of an airplane, it can feel great to get your heart rate going and loosen up your body with a quick workout.

The majority of Kelowna hotels and resorts have fitness centres. Depending on the space available, they can feature an assortment of equipment, including:

  • Treadmills
  • Elliptical trainers
  • Recumbent bicycles
  • Free weights
  • Multi-trainers


3. Go for a Soak

One of the easiest (and most enjoyable) ways to recuperate your body is with a soothing soak in a hot tub. You can practically feel the tension in your muscles melt away. The Best Western Kelowna features a pair of outdoor hot tubs, which are especially fun in winter.

If you’re looking for a gentle pick-me-up, try alternating between the hot tub and a swimming pool. It’s a refreshing experience, and it also helps increase blood circulation.


4. Savour a Meal

Whether you’re in a car or a plane, the food options while commuting tend to be quite limited. Not wanting to waste time, drivers typically settle for snacks and fast food when they fill up for gas. And airplane food is, well, it’s airplane food (there’s not much else to say about it).

Sometimes all it takes is a nice meal and a heartwarming glass of wine to pacify a weary soul. Take advantage of your accommodation's restaurants and pubs, or check out the area for some good eats.


5. Curl up and Watch a Show

If any of the above options seem like too much work, you can always pick up the remote, dive under the covers and catch up on your favourite TV shows.
