British Columbia’s Okanagan valley, home of Sun Peaks Resort is one of the BC interiors best kept secrets.
Warm in summer and a serious rival for Whistler in the colder months, it has something happening at any time of year. To share the beauty and attraction of Okanagan with visitors, the Sun Peaks resort village was built.
Designed to be a ski resort in winter and a meadow playground in summer, the resort has something for everyone, at any time of year.
As well as snow and ski holidays, this resort is the ideal destination for anyone who is in need of a little pampering: The area offers spas that cover the spectrum of beauty, relaxation and sports massage treatments.
Massage, facials, pre-wedding packages and well-qualified experts to make you over from head to toe are on hand in the main Sun Peaks Spa, located almost literally on your doorstep, in the Kookaburra Lodge.
Because this part of the world is so well known as being a winter playground, the summer is a good time to visit to take advantage of the off-peak peace, as well as the off-peak prices. Spa packages can include accommodations, breakfast and spa days for far less than the usual winter holiday packages (which are already much better value than British Columbia’s better known ski resorts).
Sun Peaks Spa, for instance, offer their clients a Hot Stone massage (forty-five minutes) and a Hot Foot soak and nail polish application for less than sixty dollars in the summer months. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon while the kids are involved in one of the many summer activities, or when you come off the slopes in winter.
