Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year and in 2015, Valentine’s Day will fall on a Saturday. This is a relatively rare occurrence; the last time Valentine’s Day was on a Saturday was in 2009 and it won’t happen again until 2026! This means that it’s the perfect time for a romantic getaway in the South Okanagan and a chance to go above and beyond for your valentine. Luckily for you, Watermark Beach Resort in Osoyoos has the perfect plan for your Valentine’s Day getaway this year.
Begin your getaway with the Romantic Escape Package starting at just $299 + tax*. The package includes accommodation in one of our luxurious condo-style resort suites and you will receive sparkling wine and an amenity on arrival. A romantic getaway wouldn’t be complete without a bit of a sleep-in, so you will also receive a complimentary late checkout to 1 PM on Sunday.
As part of the Romantic Escape Package, guests will receive a $100 credit for our renowned Wine & Tapas Bar. Chef Adair sources the ingredients for his tapas-style dishes from local growers whenever possible, adding to the authentic, South Okanagan, farm to table experience. We also have one of the most extensive wine lists in the valley, allowing us to showcase an array of Okanagan wines, from rieslings through to rich cabernet franc and renowned pinot noirs.
As a special treat for our guests, we will be extending our special Okanagan Wine & Dine menu. These menu options allow guests to enjoy a decadent 3-course meal, designed for sharing, for $25 or $35.
If a 3-course romantic dinner for two is more your style, you will be thrilled with the scrumptious menu that Chef Adair has planned just for Valentine’s Day! This truly is an experience and an evening that you won’t soon forget!

Curl up in bed and watch a movie on your 42-inch television, whip up a late-night snack in the kitchen, or plug in the iPhone and waltz around your suite like Fred and Ginger. And don’t forget to pack your swimsuit! We have two outdoor hot tubs, so you can relax under the Okanagan skies with your valentine after a beautiful stroll along Lake Osoyoos.
If you want to take your romantic Valentine’s Day getaway even further, we highly recommend scheduling some wine tours and tastings. Located in Osoyoos, Watermark Beach Resort is just a short drive from some of the most renowned Canadian wineries. Many of our neighbouring wineries are happy to open their doors for scheduled appointments in the winter months, and the quieter season means that you will have the undivided attention of your host and you may even be speaking with winery owner or winemaker!

Watermark is a 2-hour drive from Kelowna, where direct flights are available from Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Seattle, and there is a daily express shuttle between Kelowna and Osoyoos. All you need to do is get here, and we will take care of the rest!
