This striking Tuscan-style resort, painted in vivid reds and ochres, sits on a sandy swimming beach directly on Okanagan Lake. All the water sports are here, from windsurfing to parasailing to waterskiing, as well as a tennis court, a putting green, and children's playground. Accommodation choices include rooms and suites—all with balconies—in the main building and two- and three-bedroom villas. The villas are especially handsome, with full kitchens, gas fireplaces, terra-cotta tiles, high ceilings, and patios. The Smack Dab restaurant is a winner, serving a great selection of craft brews on tap as well as Pacific Northwest cuisine inside and on its big lakeside patio.
