The Delta Grand Okanagan Resort and Conference Centre is in the midst of getting a new, and pricey, facelift.

A $9.4 Million lobby renovation is underway and includes the creation of a new destination restaurant and wine bar that will showcase our location in the Heart of Wine Country!  Designers Mackay Wong are creating a 263 seat restaurant and wine bar, which will draw inspiration direct from local farmers and producers in the Okanagan Valley, showcase local wineries, craft distilleries and breweries and feature a stunning outdoor patio overlooking the spectacular Lake Okanagan.

“This highly anticipated renovation will assist in repositioning our resort on the global stage, and elevate our position as the premiere waterfront resort and conference centre in Canada.” said Daniel Bibby, General Manager.  “Our Executive Chef Iain Rennie and his talented culinary team are very excited to launch a new concept that highlights the bounty and creativity of the Okanagan Valley”.

Award winning and locally based Edgecombe Builders are leading the construction project. The redesigned lobby will open in March with the restaurant and wine bar opening towards the end of May.
