Plan Your Perfect Girls Getaway

Time to relax, reflect and have fun.

We’ve known for a long time that Osoyoos, women and travel are a perfect match. Spas, wine, golf, great restaurants, and pampered relaxation are just a few of the reasons why the appeal of stealing away for quality time with your best friends has lasting staying power. And there’s no better place than here, in Canada’s only official desert. Spend time with your girlfriends at one of our lakeside resorts; let your hair down and then up again at a spa after a massage and skin toning. Hang out on the beach, play a round of golf or take a lesson, go for a horseback ride through the desert hills, try Yoga, and just have fun. So, if your New Year’s resolution was to spend more time with the girls in 2015, you’ll soon discover that we’re the best place to bring those times at a girl’s getaway.
