    We stayed at the Cove for a yoga retreat and can't say enough about the Cove. It had all we wanted - a luxury spa, hot tub, two bedrooms, a lovely view of the lake and all the things you want in an upscale condo.

    The Cove has everything you could possibly want, and is close to so many activities! Most other rental properties don't have a restaurant on site with room service available, a spa, boat rentals, and I highly recommend

  • Amazing place to have our wedding!

    I was married at The Cove on June 28th 2018, it was an amazing place to have our wedding! From the beginning, the coordinator we talked to, Terry was very efficient, he always made sure to get back to me right away with any question or request. On the day of our wedding, everything went smoothly and as planned. Our bridal party stayed in 2 rooms the night before the wedding and the rooms were fantastic! Lots of space to get ready for your wedding or finish up last minute prep. We had 4 of us girls, a makeup artisit and hair dresser and family coming in and out of the room and there was plenty of space. The staff were amazing, they called our room to make sure everything was good and also held doors for us while I entered the garden to be married and I heard many words of congratulations from staff as well. The food was out of this world, local and so fresh! All our guests were raving about the food the next day and about the whole experience! I would recommend The Cove to anyone looking for a great venue where you can have your ceremony, reception and a place for your guests to stay!

  • Great accommodation with everything you would want

    Spent the weekend in a two bedroom lake view suit. Very impressed with the service and the facilities. Check in was fast and friendly,we were given a suite on the the top floor. The room was more than expected with everything one could imagine including in suite laundry... the suite itself was well laid out with tons of room including an office and a loft. The resort has a great restaurant [Bonfire Restaurant] which we visited for breakfast both days and dinner on one night. A full service spa, lots of outdoor facilities (we did not use because it is winter) and a hot tub also are available. Overall a great experience from check in to check out. This well seasoned traveler is happy to recommend The Cove to anyone planing a stay in the Okanagan, you won’t be dissapointed

  • Family vacation trip

    Amazing pool and water slide for kids! Very family friendly environment. We got a nice lake view with our garden view room. Our room is tidy and clean. The second bedroom is big enough to fit in the crib for our baby. We will definitely stay there again next time.

  • Best location in West Kelowna!

    The Cove has everything you could possibly want, and is close to so many activities! Most other rental properties don't have a restaurant on site with room service available, a spa, boat rentals, and I highly recommend you request a lakefront unit to take advantage of the beautiful views!

  • Amazing place next to lake, best views

    This west Kelowna suite hotel is a piece of paradise in the Okanagan valley next to the lake.
    Very modern and worth every penny. The views are stunning. The walking path in front takes you to the Gellaty family nut farm or left to the beach. 
    Rent a boat or a paddle board right out front. The gentlemen running the water sports is very nice. [LakeSurf Okanagan]
    The pool and slide kept the kids entertained. The pool is heated and very nice. 
    BBQ are located next to pool and easy to use. At night fire pit next to waterfront made a nice group meeting place.

    Restaurant is middle of the row. Very nice serving staff but food is average. 
    I would highly recommend The cove

  • Hidden gem

    This is truly a hidden gem. Recently one of our staff mentioned we should try this hotel as we were coming in to West Kelowna for some meetings. As soon as we saw the rooms, we couldnt believe it - full condo suites ! The value is fantastic ! Having said that, one may think just because its good value that it makes it an excellent choice - no. The thoughtful touches the staff add to this place makes the difference. From the welcome card and voicemail they left us when we arrived, to the staff recognizing you as you return to the hotel. This staff understands how to make you welcome and at home. The Bonfire restaurant is amazing. The food is simply amazing ! I have never had a bad meal here, ever. The staff really are super helpful, and understand how to serve without being too bothersome, as Ive found in other restaurants. The head Chef here has really created a menu and culinary team that will prove to be the place to go to for breakfast , lunch or dinner lakeside.

    They have hot tub, outdoor pool and gym here as well. If you have a boat, no problem. They have a marina you could dock your boat.

    This spot is truly a gem. I highly recommend this property to everyone

  • What an Amazing place

    Had the opportunity to visit the Cove and this place is amazing. The rooms are spectacular and nicely laid out. So roomy and well decorated. This truly is a home away from home. Love their garden program where you can get fresh vegetables from their garden in your kitchen upon arrival. The location is great with incredible views. peaceful and quiet on Okanagan lake. They have a great restaurant and marina which makes this a place where you don't have to leave if you don't want to. You can just come and relax and soak up everything that the Okanagan has to offer. They even have a movie room and spa so what more do you need. Would definitely recommend this resort to family and friends as it is truly a vacation to stay at the Cove

  • Great spot with great staff

    Great location as the wineries are very close. Will be back again soon. Front desk staff were outstanding.

    Excellent resort! Extremely clean and the staff is so friendly. The pool is very clean and well maintained. The waterslide is perfect for kids of all ages. We were here for a week and we never had issues finding a spot at the pool or beach. The beach is also clean and well maintained. We booked massages and they were great for relaxation if you are looking for something more you may want to go elsewhere. The spa was very relaxing and the staff and masseuses were wonderful.

    Erin
  • A Summer Fave

    We love this place. Have been coming every summer for maybe 9 years (sometimes multiple times a summer). With kids you can not beat it. They love the slide, beach, pools. Full kitchen and laundry, great patios with views. We requested a specific room to be close to our friends and they accommodated our request. Beds are very comfortable. Close to great wineries and everything you may need. Marina is right there to rent a boat or seeds or paddle boards. Can't wait to go back.

  • Excellent family vacation!

    The Cove Lakeside Resort was an amazing vacation for our family. We rarely get away and this place was beautiful and very inviting. It is rare that we can find a place for our family of 5 that is so spacious. Tons of amenities, right on the water and the kids loved the pool. Super friendly staff and if we needed something we had it in 10 minutes to our room. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!

  • Beautiful Hotel in a Beautiful Location!

    Loved everything! The room, location, food, and staff were all perfect. The two bedroom suite we stayed in was so much better than the pictures showed it as. It was spacious and well laid out and had everything we needed. Our 4 year old loved the pool and water slide (as did we). The food in their restaurant was a little pricey but it was so good it was well worth it. The staff is absolutely fantastic. Very friendly and happy to help whenever we needed it. Would highly recommend!

  • West Kelowna Perfect Staycation

    This resort has it all! Beach, Spa, Marina with rentals, Restaurant, Nice Rooms. Great Location. A real Hidden Gem. Great Breakfasts Brunch's and Dinners . You can pull up your boat and the staff will help tie it up then head in for a bite and a sip. Highly recommended.

  • Our Go-To Spot

    We came to the Cove for our wedding anniversary and a birthday celebration for the week in April. The location of this resort is beautiful. Right on the lake, close to the boardwalk to walk the lakeshore road with our dog, walk the adjoining nut tree orchard, far enough away from town to be quiet, yet minutes away by car. Close to some of the major winery's. The resort is spotless, beautiful suites, and the staff in all areas that we came across so friendly and helpful. It will be our "Go to" spot when we head to the Okanagan Valley! As well one very large "PLUS" in our books, it is pet friendly! Yeah, our dog came with us on our anniversary week.

  • Beautiful and Contemporary

    In April my brother and sister and I traveled to Kelowna to spend a long weekend at the Cove for my sisters birthday celebration. The accommodations were beautiful, contemporary and fresh, nestled in the most incredible private spot on the lake. The grounds meandering paths lead past the pool to the waters edge and beyond to the historical nut farm which provided such a great backdrop for photos. We had most of our evening meals right there in the dining room with the incredible staff even creating a special birthday dessert! Daytime excursions found us travelling only minutes in each direction to visit wineries, shopping, the casino and the suspension bridges. We had a fabulous time and hope to make this a yearly event!
