Port Okanagan Resort Hotel & Convention Centre Proposed for Okanagan Lake

Updated: Apr 2

Is Vernon ready for a major resort hotel on the northern shore of Okanagan Lake?


It would seem so.


Alberta-based Avillia Developments are proposing a project, known as Port Okanagan, that includes a waterfront resort hotel, convention centre, retail stores, residential and commercial structures.

The 7 hectare (approx) project would be built on Okanagan's lakeshore right next to Kin Beach.


Building height would be limited to 10 stories or less because of the close proximity of the Vernon Regional Airport, and there are still additional environmental assessments and community input before the proposed project could begin, but Vernon City officials like the idea.

Vernon Council unanimously approved the project in principle at Mondays (March 28th) regular Council meeting. A public open house could begin as early as April 2022.
