Plump prawns tumble with wok-stirred veggies, all nestled by golden-brown noodles shaped into a perfect bowl. This is Mekong Restaurant's specialty, the seafood noodle nest. For more than 26 years, the eatery has crafted Szechuan cuisine, tempting diners with its complex flavours so they don't have to eat dinner and dessert at the same time.
Capri Valley Lanes features 16, fully-computerized 5-pin bowling lanes open for friendly competition, league play, and everybody's favorite: laser bowl. The latter gives bowlers opportunity to practice their hooks amidst light shows and thumping music, while those seeking a party all their own can head to a private party room that accommodates up to 70. Best of all, the entire facility is licensed, so bowlers don't have to leave their drinks at the bar or sneak it into their cleverly-disguised pin flask.
Members at Curves, a fitness centre designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Circuit coaches are always nearby to help manage participants’ machine manoeuvring and muscle making. The hydraulic machines use the exerciser's own body weight and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities and decreases the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean bodies perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like they can.

Finding the right eyeglasses can be a challenge. You not only have to find frames that fit your face, but also your personality. Cheryl, a licensed optician at Clear Vision Optical, loves to help clients do just that. After taking into account the person's face shape, hair and eye color, and super power, she pulls eyewear from brands such as Vogue, Guess, and Ray-Ban.
When resort guests want vacations from their vacations, the quadrilateral Beyond Wrapture Mind and Body Care transports them out of the country. The four spas have no airports, however—instead, they’ve simply named and modelled their spaces after coveted destinations. Both the Coast Capri Hotel and Big White Ski Resort embrace a meditative asian theme. Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa’s Manhattan room and Central Park pedicure stations evoke New York chic, whereas Lake Okanagan Resort Spa pairs its shoreline views with Moroccan-inspired baths and palatial treatment areas.
Despite their distinct designs, the spas share a common aim: simultaneous pampering of the body, mind, and soul. And although they mimic faraway settings, their services prioritize homegrown ingredients blended into their own essential oils, scrubs, and lotions for specialty procedures. Vinotherapy massages, for example, harness the healing properties of grape antioxidants with formulas made from local winery byproducts, including grape stems, skins, and pips, and overripe grapes that are about to mature into apples. The massages pair well with such luxurious services as honey-wine wraps and Okanagan grape-pip scrub.
Coast Capri Hotel is centrally located in Kelowna, walking distance from Capri Mall and close to Kelowna Museum. This eco-friendly hotel is within close proximity of Guisachan Heritage Park and Kasagui Gardens.
