A Resort Where Mother Nature Would Stay
Here in the Okanagan, it’s easy to care about the environment—after all, when you’re surrounded by this much natural beauty, you can’t help but want to protect it. Summerland Waterfront Resort is committed to minimizing our carbon footprint and doing our part to preserve mother nature’s greatest gifts.
The most important part of our resort’s sustainability strategy is our state-of-the-art geothermal system. This system draws naturally occurring heat from the earth to regulate the hotel’s cooling and heating systems, which includes the heating of our year-round outdoor pool and hot tubs.
Other sustainability initiatives at Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa include a resort-wide recycling waste reduction program, energy conservation policies, and an optional linen reuse program for guests.
For our commitment to sustainability, Summerland Waterfront Resort has earned a four-key rating from the Hotel Association of Canada’s ‘Green Key’ program—one of only 20 hotels in British Columbia to receive this designation. We are also recognized as a platinum-level ‘Green Leader’ by TripAdvisor.
Besides doing our part for the planet as whole, we have a lot to protect right here at our resort. The SWR property is home to one of only five natural wetlands in the Okanagan, and the resort’s development was designed conserve and highlight this acre of wetland. Our boardwalk is a spot where guests can often get a first-hand look at the wetland wildlife including beavers, muskrats, turtles, ducks, rare birds, and plant life. Continuing with this positive approach, and through cooperation with local government, we have added interpretive signage to give guests insight into this precious eco-system.
We invite you to come visit us this fall, and experience the natural beauty of the Okanagan in an environmentally responsible way. Choose one of our Wine Tour Packages and treat yourself to an unforgettable vacation in one of BC’s most spectacular destinations.
