Welcome to The Cove Lakeside Resort
Retreat To Our Luxury Okanagan Lake Resort
Whether it’s your first time experiencing The Cove Lakeside Resort or you’re returning to the place that holds countless vacation memories, you’ll find this gem among Kelowna hotels and resorts to be the quintessential lakeside retreat. It’s quiet and relaxing here on the shores of Okanagan Lake with 100 spacious, private residence suites tucked among beautiful gardens. It’s a place that feels completely removed from the modern world yet we’re just a short drive from the shops and restaurants of downtown Kelowna.
The essence of The Cove Lakeside Resort and Spa is rustic luxury in an exhilarating setting. In fact, the tranquility of our surroundings soothes the spirit while an array of resort-style amenities makes it easy to do as much or as little as you like. You might follow a massage or a body treatment at the Spa at The Cove with a glass of local Okanagan wine on your private balcony or patio. Spend the day lounging by the main outdoor pool or splash with the kiddies in the adjacent pool and waterslide (Pools are open seasonally. Duration of operation may vary due to weather conditions). Head to LakeSurf Okanagan at the seasonal marina for your pick of “water toys,” including sport boats, pontoon boats, waverunners, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and more. From basketball, tennis and a fitness room onsite to championship golf, world-class skiing, wineries and other fun activities nearby, there’s something for everyone.
While many resorts in Kelowna are known for their recreational opportunities, unparalleled guest service and boutique-style hospitality are what set The Cove Lakeside Resort apart as a truly special place. There is always something new to discover, no matter the season. Whether you’re visiting the Okanagan for a family vacation, a romantic getaway, a wedding celebration or a corporate gathering, you’ll feel truly at home away from it all.

A lovely and refreshing break!
We recently enjoyed a most pleasant stay at The Cove. We were impressed by the COVID-19 protocols in place. While services were reduced we appreciated the fact that the hotel had made guest safety a top priority. Our one bedroom suite was beautiful. It was comfortable and well-appointed. The view........ spectacular! We enjoyed walks along the lake and into the adjacent park which is full of nut trees. Recommended for anyone wanting a quiet escape.
This is our new happy place. It is a beautiful property on the lake, dog friendly, the front desk staff are awesome. Close to great wineries. We would love to live here and return every chance we get for vacations.
Jewel on the Lake
The Cove is quickly becoming my favourite Kelowna retreat. The staff is very friendly, and the views spectacular. I can't wait to get back again! Much more reasonably prices than others and with comparable facilities.
Mary Poppins perfect in every way
The Cove is a hidden treasure in the Okanagan. The accommodations are perfectly located on the lake with views from almost every room. The Cove is an intimate property but it offers large, multi-room suites with patios and well-equipped kitchens; great for vacations with friends and family. And anything you'd want to do, hiking, biking, boating, mani's, pedi's or a hot-stone massage - it's all on-site. We will definitely be back!
Fully Enjoyed Our Stay
We visit often and have always been well received and enjoyed the various unit types and locations. One of our favourite treats is viewing the wide selection of dogs in the lobby and out for a walk with their owners.
