If you’ve not yet been to British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, you’re in for a treat.
I popped up to Kelowna yesterday for a Friday night catch up with the gals. Where better to get together than at our old haunt, Hotel Eldorado?
After a scenic drive up from the coast, I checked into the El, and then we were utterly spoiled with great service from Kate, Chris and more.
With gorgeous end-of-September weather, we started outdoors and eventually made our way to the indoor lounge.
This boutique waterfront property has retained its character while adding elements such as the gorgeous copper ceilings you’ll see here.
I didn’t spend the entire afternoon and evening soaking up wine and the El’s famous Crantinis, however. Before meeting up with the gals, I was given a tour of the property and some of the renewal. How would you like to soak your cares away in this lakeview tub?
I’m off now to enjoy some Okanagan sunshine, but will soon publish more on my stay at the Hotel Eldorado. In the interim, I’ll leave you with a some glimpses of the expansive rooftop views I woke up to this morning.
All was quiet when I took these shots at sunrise today …
… but it won’t stay that way long, as there’ll be an afternoon wedding under this pergola today. What a gorgeous setting in which to start a new life together!
