“Great amenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

We stayed at Spirit Ridge for two nights while attending a wedding. Our 2 bedroom suite came with lots of amenities including free Wi-Fi, full kitchen, generous living room and access to all of the resorts services. These include swimming pools, hot tubs, bicycles and exercise room. The resort is well run with friendly staff. The Nk'Amip Winery and tasting room with full service restaurant add to the overall resort feeling. Golf is available at a fee and is 9 holes so is played twice from different tees for 18. We didn't paly it but our friends did and said it was a challenging with narrow fairways which is typical of resort courses. We had a golfer looking for his ball bedside our deck, he found it and we were busy kidding him at the same time.
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend Spirit Ridge, this is our second time at the resort and enjoyed both visits. We only had breakfast which was nothing special since we were touring wineries and taking advantage of the kitchen facilities to cook our own gourmet meals.

This was our second trip here. Summer is the time to go. It's gorgeous and the rooms are mini condos with laundry and high end decor! This weekend was my daughter's wedding. Myself and many guests were not impressed with the overall poor service.

Housekeeping service was poor or not at all for many of the guests. The wedding deck and reception floors were dirty with ants piling on food remnants. The garbages had not been emptied and we had to do it. No one ever came with more garbage bags to the Lavender roof top so we had to improvise. This helped with the wasps. Elevators were super slow. The chairs would've been set up facing the wrong way had I not been there. The event coordinator was not available until after 11am and even then no one ever came up to the rooftop ceremony deck to offer assistance.

There were weeds coming up through the tiles and the planters were disgraceful and heavy to move. The umbrella shading for the head table were ugly blue/white Corona brand. There was no one around to talk to during the set up of either area and the set up completion time was only one hour before guests were to arrive leaving us frantically trying to finish but not in time.

Food service was poor. Only 2 servers for 84 guests. The entire place seemed understaffed. Do not eat the breakfast there on weekends. it's a pitiful buffet. Also the same at WaterMark. Go to Smitty's. They catered to vegetarians. Weekday breakfasts at SR are excellent but pricey.

The views, the pools and the grounds are amazing! But for a supposed 5 star resort the service did not match. Bring your epi pen. Tonnes of wasps/bees. I got stung.

I found this resort not to be conducive to weddings and more of an after thought so prepare to adapt!

We stayed at Spirit Ridge for 4 nights in June. The resort is beautiful and the rooms were great. We shared a 2 bedroom suite with some friends for half of our stay. It was very spacious with 2 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, nice sized kitchen & living room. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite our last night, and we were very impressed with the room.

The pools at the resort are very nice. There is a family friendly pool which can get kind of busy, and there was a quiet pool which was nice for relaxing.

The winery at the resort is awesome! We went for wine tastings and then had lunch on the patio. The views were amazing and the food was excellent.

I had a massage at the spa one morning, and it was one of the best I have ever had!

Overall a great time!

Once again we picked Spirit Ridge Resort for our annual family summer vacation pilgrimage and play time in mid-July 2013. The Resort once again did not let us down for entertainment and value. We booked in spring at the discounted rate for our rooms which makes it much more affordable. Room cleanliness was the only deficiency that we encountered at the Resort and was corrected after mentioned. Ironically it’s a shame that the pool, waterslide and hot tubs are so nice on the resort as for the third year in a row we did not even touch the "warmest lake in Canada". It's a shame really, but so much easier going to a pool with kids. The adults got to enjoy themselves by meandering to an endless list of wineries throughout the day and kids staying at the resort pool with poolside food and drink service..... great to be a kid! Make sure you pick want poolside service they get..... not the OTHER way around or it turns into a run-a-way! Employees were very accommodating with this service and we signed purchases to room in advance. Kids loved the horseback riding that is at the entrance of the resort. Went across border to Oroville and a Mexican meal at Trino's...... unfortunately it was Tuesday..... why do I say this? We did not know that Trino's is CLOSED Tuesdays?? We got directed to another Mexican restaurant in 20 miles further south on Hwy #97 to the town of Tonasket WA called Rancho Chico. The amazing traditional interior , food and service was amazing! Great margaritas, endless menu of food possibilities (maybe too much choice) and a tequila shot finish with the proprietor! We always enjoy our time in Osoyoos at the Spirit Ridge Resort.....next time, we hope, it will be longer!

As each room of the resort is essentially a time share (individually owned), the quality and up-keep will differ for each room.

I found the cleanliness to be questionable. This includes a dirty mildewish shower curtain, old coffee grinds and dog hair in the coffee machine, and pubic hair attached (waist high) to the wall near the bathroom sink.

Although the rooms are large, the overall quality for a $200+ a night stay is questionable.

If you are looking for a place to spend some time with your family, this is the spot. We attended a wedding at Spirit Ridge for 3 nights with our two young daughters. I was blown away by the size of the rooms. We had a 2 bedroom facing the pool. It essentially was the size of a standard apartment - simply lovely to have the space with the kids. I did not feel like we were in a hotel ....we we in an apartment condo which was exceptionally comfortable. This is a good spot to spend with extended family and friends as well.

Perched on the hillside overlooking the lake and city of Osoyoos, this resort has it all. The rooms are very well maintained and the desert colours are warm and relaxing. Reception staff remember your name and are very attentive. Having beach access as well as the options of the family pool or the quiet pool is unprecedented in the area. Make sure to dine at Mica and try the "Pork and Beans" entree, which is outstanding. Can't wait to go back!

The 4.5-star Spirit Ridge at Nk'Mip Resort celebrates its natural desert cultural landscape.Our accommodation is a 226-condominium 1, 2 & 3-bedroom style hotel nestled between Anarchist Mountain and Lake Osoyoos. Situated on Osoyoos Indian Band land, we celebrate our resort partner's amenities and destination attractions. The Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre is a hub of information on the Okanagan people where you can immerse yourself in Aboriginal Events and cultural ceremonies. The Nk'Mip Cellars are an award-winning vineyard and winery, right on the Resort. They provide in depth tours and daily wine tastings. Just down the hill is the Nk'Mip RV Park and Campground, a year-round heated playground for an active Snowbird Community. In the summer, there is a Cantina on the Lake where you can take a water taxi across to town - or invite friends to you. The challenging 9-hole Sonora Dunes golf course has a clubhouse (opening year-round shortly) and Pro Shop. The view from the tee boxes envelop the backdrop of the rugged mountain, the Lake below and a beautiful scene of the Spirit Ridge adobe-style buildings dotted with wrought iron icons, native to the area. We have a full service spa on site Solterra Desert Spa who are open year-round, waiting to pamper locals and visitors alike. Our resort weddings are becoming legendary. Photo opportunities exist from every viewpoint with the spectacular vineyard stretching out like arms to the sun, up the hill. Meander between wild desert sage, catch a glimpse of a wild herd of horses, laze in one of our outdoor pools or hot tub and wonder, "why didn't I get here sooner".
