A perfect venue in the Okanagan offering exclusive use of the entire facility
Bottega was started by a Kelowna family business in 2011 with a vision to provide a modern boutique hotel and retreat centre promoting cultural development in a creative environment. Uniquely located in a working alpaca farm, guests can enjoy various wildlife while touring trails through orchards and vineyards. Bottega’s stunning views of the countryside are an experience in itself.
Bottega aims to provide you with a peaceful environment where you may enjoy its trails, sights, sounds, smell and feeling of contentment. It’s the perfect retreat venue to relax your mind and give you a better perspective on tomorrow. Bottega takes pride in giving guests a true taste of Kelowna.
COMMUNITY CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT
Community cultural development is another focus for Bottega. Community members collaborating to express identity, concerns, and aspirations through the arts and communications media. A process that simultaneously builds individual mastery and collective cultural capacity while contributing to positive social change. This definition from Arlene Goldbard, (New Creative Community: The Art of Cultural Development, 2006) reflects Bottega’s long term vision.
Bottega is committed to growing greener. We use eco-friendly products wherever possible, from serving utensils to cleaning products. In our sincerest efforts to serve our guests, we also wish to pursue initiatives that better serve the environment. We have instituted water-efficient shower heads, low-flow toilet valves, compact fluorescent lights where possible, and recycling receptacles. We do ask our guests to kindly participate in the water conservation efforts by reusing linens when possible.
Only a few miles away, an off-site 5 acre farm project was started called Little Church Organics Farm where Bottega has provided local and organic produce, sustaining organic agricultural practices.
“You have our eternal gratitude for being such impeccable hosts for our retreat. We could not have done it without your incredible team & there are no words to express how blessed we feel to have gotten to work with you.”

“The Okanagan Youth Dance Society has hosted their flagship fundraiser, ‘Dance Into Your Heart’, at Bo.ttega since 2012 and we couldn’t be happier with every aspect of the venue. The setting is beautiful – secluded but not out of reach – the facilities are warm and elegant, and the staff are accommodating beyond belief. They genuinely want to help you make your function the best it can be, and will go to extra measures when they see opportunities to enhance your event. It’s an amazing venue for a fundraiser and would be brilliant for a corporate team-building retreat, wedding, reunion… Wonderful spot.”
