Our hotel in Kelowna provides the perfect home base for a date night with your loved one.

While February tends to be the time of year when we dole out chocolates and flowers to those we care about, there are other ways to celebrate love in Kelowna. Ranked at 7 in the top 20 romantic cities in Canada in Amazon’s annual list of Most Romantic Cities, Kelowna has a number of couple-friendly attractions and activities. Why not book a Romance Package at the Comfort Suites hotel in Kelowna and get ready to spread your love around town with these 5 perfect date ideas:

1. Snowshoe up Knox Mountain

Knox Mountain, located just minutes away from our Kelowna hotel, has a number of trails ideal for both novice and experienced snowshoers. Enjoy some peace and tranquillity with your loved one while taking in spectacular views of the valley, Okanagan Lake and the surrounding mountains. For those couples staying at Kelowna pet-friendly hotels such as the Comfort Suites, please note that dogs must be kept on a leash when visiting Knox Mountain Park.

2. Spice Things up with a Dance Class

If you and your partner have ever wanted to learn the sensual dance of the tango or the rhythmic dance of the cha-cha, Kelowna’s Latinesque Ballroom and Latin Dance Studio is the place to visit. The studio offers one-hour private dance lessons in all manner of Latin and ballroom dance techniques. All you need is your dancing shoes.

3. Hold Hands while Ice Skating

Located on Kelowna’s lakefront downtown, the outdoor ice rink at Stuart Park offers a magical place to skate with your loved one. Skate rentals are available, and you can warm up by the fire afterwards before heading back to relax at your hotel in Kelowna with a pool and hot tub.

4. Let out Your Inner Viking

If you and your Thor are into Norwegian lore, then you may want to seek out one of Kelowna’s more unique establishments. Located on Bernard Street downtown, Munnin’s Post is influenced by Vikingesque design and culture and offers food, drink and entertainment to match. Sip on an Asgardian Oasis, a mixture of rum, banana liqueur, pineapple juice and soda, while playing a game of chess or listen to live music from metal to jazz. Movies are also screened on Wednesday nights.

5. Set off on an Okanagan Wine Tour

Kelowna is at the centre of more than 80 wineries that offer everything from boutique-style tasting rooms to full-service dining. The Comfort Suites offers one of the best Kelowna hotel deals around with our wine tour packages, which offer accommodations in one of our well-appointed suites along with a guided tour of some of the region’s best wineries, led by one of our wine tour operators.

The Comfort Suites is a Choice hotel in Kelowna recognized for its hospitality, clean and modern suites, amenities and location on Highway 97 near Kelowna International Airport. Included is our complimentary hot breakfast buffet, indoor swimming pool with waterslide and hot tub, 24-hour fitness centre, and business and meeting facilities.
