We arrived early June 2007.

This is really an amazing place! After driving in during a long rain storm (unusual for the desert location!), we were really pleased to find a wonderful modern resort.

The complex, consisting of hotel, restaurant, pool, newly opened spa, winery, golf course and desert/heritage centre, were all open. There was some construction to create a new car park, but no percievable noise or construction problems at all.

We booked a corner suite, and were absolutely amazed! The suite must have been brand new, everything was new and immaculate. We were overwhelmed - gorgeous kitchenette, living room, wrap-around balcony, master bedroom, lovely bathroom and even your own personal outdoor hot-tub. I was so amazed that I double-checked the rate per night! I thought I must have mis-read the cost of the whole trip as being per night, since I believe that's what this would have cost in the UK!
Amazing value.

The whole complex is very new, and set amongst the vineyards which guests can walk around as they wish.
The restaurant is also superb - the best meal of our 14 days in Canada.
My mother also thought the new spa was first-rate.

I would love to visit again - this is a superb, superb resort, in such an interesting area of Canada.
I do hope the rates keep low, and I'll definitely return!

GOOD: Beautiful room. Full kitchen with all appliances (cups, plates, utencils, pots etc... we didn't need to buy anything to cook with other than the food). Fireplace in the living room and bedroom. T.V. in the bedroom and living room. Very clean, very new. Very well laid out. Staff were very kind and friendly. Gym was not too bad as far as hotel gyms go. Hotel restarant was very nice. Great soaker tub on the wrap around patio overlooking the vineyard. We even loved the tour of their own vineyard and winery and thought that the guide was very informative and we learned a lot. Really no complaints.

BAD: Nothing! Even if I tried to come up with a negative, it would be so trivial and not worth mentioning.

CONCLUSION: We would absolutely stay there again. Well worth the money for what you're getting. No hesitation in recommending this place.

`This place is in the midst of low and mid range motels and medicre restaurants ` - The reviewer below made this comment but I'm confused as to what they mean as Spirit Ridge is away from the tourist area and on a hill, basically by itself, above the city.
Exceptional quality - and the rate for the condo was well below what I thought it was worth. I would pay more. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend this place based on our stay and the 4 stars are well deserved. Osoyoos is a `desert gem` and worth a visit also. Be sure to stay at Spirit Ridge.

This place is in the midst of low and mid range motels and medicre restaurants - and is simply one of the best places in BC.

The construction quality is superb - granite, beautifully finished, supremely comfortable beds, very nice living room - very high end. Also, great views. Nice touch was the wine rack filled with vineyard specialties - and not even at marked up prices. Newly opened, and still partly under construction - but the construction mess some reviewers mentioned is no longer toublesome.

Beautifully located pool. Friendly staff. Native museum and winery onsite - excellent.

But, the best part of all is the restaurant. When our group ate there the first night, we really couldn't believe how good it was. Every item was unusual, creative and delicious. It compres to the best restaurants in the country. We then ate there every night of our stay, with several different people, and we were continually surprised at how good it was.

A real gem.

My wife and I drove all the way from Manitoba to stay in Osoyoos for 7 days.

We arrived around midnight and had difficulty finding the actual resort, but after driving around for about 20 minutes found out how to get there.

I had informed them previously that I would be arriving late, and they said they would arrange for the person on security to give me the key.

We arrived around 1 AM and we were shown our room, and the security guard was very kind and showed us how to use everything in the home as well.

EXCELLENT beds, the furniture is high quality (not cheap hotel furniture). Loved the fireplace, full kitchen, washer & dryer, bathrooms were absolutely excellent. View we had was absolutely amazing (you can see our view over the vineyard and the town from my picture). And the deck was wonderful as well.

Construction was going on although never was an issue for us.
Spa and pool weren't finished, so all I can comment on those things. For the price we paid, I really couldn't have asked for more though.

Reception staff was good, although slow...

I wouldn't think twice about going again...

Five of us rented a two-bedroom villa at Spirit Ridge the first week in September '06. It was absolutely perfect. We made some fabulous dinners in the amply furnished kitchen and then dined on the patio overlooking the vineyard and the lake, washing down our meals with wines purchased that day at nearby wineries. Because of the temperatures, we were able to easily sit outside until well past midnight, just relaxing, chatting and drinking yet more wine. When we were there, neither the lodge nor the pool were finished and the grounds still had some landscaping to be done but that didn't take away one bit from the enjoyment we got out of staying there. We also very much enjoyed the desert cultural centre on the grounds. I can't recommend this place enough and we will definitely be back again. Spirit Ridge is truly magical.

  • Liked — The incredible views and the beds were extremely comfortable.
  • Disliked — Nothing negative at all.
  • Tips/Secrets — Splurge on a villa.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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". Experience Nk'Mip hospitality at it's best! ... more   less
