Spirit Ridge Resort, Osoyoos, BC - Unbound Collection - Review

Searched the forum for this property, and it looks like no thread exists yet. Mods - if I missed it, please move this to the appropriate place!

We had planned a road trip through Western Canada, and were intrigued by the Spirit Ridge Resort. It also went down a category this year (4 to 3), so we booked a 2 night stay on points for two adults and two kids in the standard one bedroom suite.

This is an all-suite (or all condo/villa) property, with the standard rooms being one bedroom condo units. The rooms are arranged in several two story villas (several units per villa) as well as 3-4 story buildings, centered around the family pool area with a water slide and a large hot tub. There's an adults only pool as well below the main restaurant terrace. The resort is somewhat reminiscent of the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort in NM or Hyatt Residence Club Resort in Sedona with its adobe inspired style. Anarchist Mountain is just behind the property, and the resort is surrounded by vineyards, and has a tasting room onsite (sorry, didn't partake).

As a globalist, we were upgraded to a one bedroom villa unit with a very large patio. The patio had a soaking tub (not a hot tub), a set of outdoor furniture for 4, and a grill. The unit was large, with two bathrooms, full kitchen, and dining/living room combo. Breakfast vouchers were provided for the full service restaurant on property - only a la carte breakfast was available; there is no buffet. In general, it seemed they do not get a lot of globalists - staff were confused as to the status benefits, and inconsistent in applying them.

There's a private beach on Osoyoos Lake, but it's nothing special - a small swimmable area with some seaweed past the first few feet, a beachfront restaurant, and a watersports outlet with boats and equipment for rent (it's not integrated into the room charge system - bring money with you). There's a golf cart that shuttles people back and forth, but the wait can be pretty long.

The actual town of Osoyoos is small and somewhat quaint - nothing special, but the landscape, vineyards, and farms give the area a very "Tuscan" feel. There are dozens of wineries and fruit stands in the immediate vicinity, as well as a neat natural oddity called Spotted Lake - google it!

Not sure I would make Spirit Ridge a primary destination, but it makes a great place to stop for a few days if driving between Vancouver and Calgary.
