OSOYOOS CORPORATE EVENT VENUES Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort & Spa, Walnut Beach Resort and the Watermark Beach Resort are natural choices for corporate meeting groups in the area.

The Nk'Mip Cellars, located onsite, is North America's first Aboriginal owned and operated winery and features award-winning chardonnays and red varietals. The seasonal outdoor restaurant is open from May through October and features Aboriginal-inspired dishes. The Walnut Beach Resort features a secluded private beach, an expansive pool deck and designer hotel suites to cater to groups looking for the perfect spot to host a retreat. The Vistas conference centre can host meetings for up to 150 people. Just steps from the Watermark Beach Resort lies the downtown heart of Osoyoos. Caf├ęs, shops, boutiques and restaurants begin where the resort ends. Onsite, the Watermark has 3,000 sq. ft. of event space that can accommodate up to 200 people.

Thanks to the city's extended seasons and arid climate, golfing, vineyard tours, water sports and outdoor pursuits such as hiking and fishing are all part of the laid-back Osoyoos lifestyle. The South Okanagan is home to the highest concentration of vineyards and wineries in Cana- da, composed of five distinct areas: Summerland, Naramata Bench, Okanagan Falls, Oliver and Osoyoos. Stellar vineyards include: Moon Curser Vineyards, Young & Wyse Collection, Adega on 45th Estate Winery and La Stella Winery. Osoyoos is a beautiful, natural quilt of rolling acres of fruit trees, vineyards and glimpses of sparkling lakes. Home to Canada's only desert (it's actually the northernmost tip of the Arizona's Sonoran Desert), this section of the valley features short winters and a temperate climate.
