Thinking of getting out of Kelowna for a weekend? The team at Quincy Vrecko and Associates share their 3 favourite weekend getaways.
Kelowna is a beautiful city full of stunning views, fantastic dining, and endless activities. That being said, sometimes you just need a relaxing weekend escape to recharge. If you’re ready to experience a new space here are our top three destinations for weekend getaways from Kelowna. Just a short drive or flight away!
A short drive north to Vernon takes you to the stunning property of Sparkling Hill. This one of a kind property is one of North America’s world-class health and wellness spas, considered an oasis for relaxation, pampering and healing. Guest rooms are filled with crystal accents and feature floor to ceiling windows as well as a crystal shaped two-person soaker tubs.
The Sparkling Hill spa boasts 7 themed steam rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, hydrotherapy and multiple areas for relaxation. After a full day or pampering you can refuel at the stunning Peak Fine Restaurant featuring farm to table dining with tasty menus that change seasonally. For an extra treat the sommelier will pair each course with the perfect local or international wine.
This is one of the weekend getaways that is close to home but will allow you to escape even just for a night.
The Douglas at Parq Vancouver
Our weekend getaways take a little further west. The Douglas hotel is located inside Parq Vancouver in downtown Vancouver’s entertainment district and perfect for a weekend getaway. The hotel features beautifully appointed rooms with lush linens and original artwork. Or splash out in luxury for one of three individually curated luxury bi-level suites with stunning views.
A short stroll through Parq Vancouver takes you to the Spa by JW and The Glamoury for some luxurious pampering. Spa treatments are custom tailored to Calm, Indulge, Invigorate and Renew. Or head to the Glamoury and treat yourself to a blow out.
Finally be sure to head up to the 6th floor rooftop and dine at The Victor a classic North American steak and local seafood experience. Sip expertly paired wine or premium cutting edge cocktails while looking out over False Creek.
Finally, the last of the weekend getaways skip over to Vancouver Island. Multiple daily flights with Pacific Coastal take you from YLW to Tofino through Vancouver. Tofino’s Wickaninnish Inn is one of the most favourite luxury weekend getaways for Tracey and Quincy Vrecko. The “Wick” sits perched on the west coast of Vancouver Island and beautifully combines elegance and natural beauty. The spacious guest rooms feature ocean of beach views and are designed with attention to detail and a connection to nature.
Get pampered at the Ancient Cedars Spa and take a short drive to the Wolf in the Fog restaurant for an exquisite meal in stunning surroundings. The Wolf features a delicious menu inspired by the oceans, forests and shoreline of the local area. Try the oysters!
