Escape From The OfficeAnd Enjoy The 'Sip, Savor And Swing' Meeting Package At The New Watermark Beach Resort
With spring upon us, there’s no better time than now to move the boardroom outside and take advantage of early season rates. Set in Osoyoos, the heart of Canada’s premiere winemaking region, from now through the end of June, the new Watermark Beach Resort is inviting guests to come and experience the ‘Sip, Savour and Swing’ meeting package.

The two-night package includes accommodation in a One-Bedroom Lakeside Suite, round of golf at the Osoyoos Golf & Country Club, evening reception, lunch and dinner in the Watermark Wine Bar, complimentary meeting space, and a three-hour Okanagan Wine Tour. The ‘Sip, Savour and Swing’ package, bringing together the best the Okanagan has to offer, is priced at $700 CAD per person. Hailed as the “hottest destination in Canada,” Osoyoos is a mecca for golf enthusiasts and oenophiles. Sculpted in the environs of a desert mountainside, Osoyoos Golf & Country Club rewards golfers with precision shot making and captivating views of Osoyoos and its surrounding orchards, vineyards, and, of course, Osoyoos Lake. After a challenging day on the links, guests are treated to a Wine Tasting Tour of the South Okanagan. Alternating itineraries include visits to the Black Sage Bench, Golden Mile and Cawston Valley regions with an opportunity to taste award winning wines from wineries such as Burrowing Owl, Hester Creek and Nk’Mip Cellars, North America’s first Aboriginal owned and operated wintery.

The new 153 suite Watermark Beach Resort consists of a main building and 30 beachfront townhomes. Each of the Penthouse, Studio, One-, Two- and Three-bedroom Suites offer all the comforts and conveniences of home, including stainless steel kitchen appliances, deep soaking tubs, flat-screen televisions in the master bedrooms and living areas, and private balconies with breathtaking views of the lake or desert landscape. Sure to please meeting planners, the Resort hosts 3,000 sq. ft. of meeting space able to accommodate up to 220 for conferences, celebrations or special events. The hotel’s complement of amenities include a yoga studio, fitness facility, steam room, hot tubs, seasonal outdoor pool, and the Watermark Wine Bar serving up the finest and freshest the local producers have to offer.

Located 396 kilometres (246 miles) from Vancouver or 457 kilometers (284 miles) from Seattle and accessible via either Kelowna International Airport or Penticton Airport, Osoyoos boasts Canada’s driest climate with the lowest rainfall and highest temperatures in the country. Best known for the multitude of wineries and orchards that dot the region, Osoyoos also offers a wide range of activities from fishing, horseback riding and water sports to golf, cultural experiences, hiking and fine dining.
