Sensory experience to strengthen the spirit

Restore your spirit with a soak in sacred waters at Aiyansh Hotsprings in Nisga’a lands or Ainsworth Hotsprings in Kootenai territory. Pamper yourself with contemporary professional treatments at an Indigenous-owned spa.

New fine Indigenous dining and contemporary spa experiences honour old, simple ways. Sip Indigenous wine on sage-covered desert hills and sample from Indigenous culinary creatives at award-winning eateries in the fertile growing areas and urban landscapes of present-day British Columbia.

Lifetimes of living in close relationship to the land have gifted Indigenous people with a natural sense of integrity between vivid sensory experiences and deep healing spaces.

Quaaout Lodge & Spa at Talking Rock Golf Resort, the pride of the Skwlx te Secwepemculecw (Little Shuswap Lake Band), is situated on the north shore of Little Shuswap Lake. Located midway between Vancouver & Calgary the Resort is located just minutes off the Trans Canada Highway, a 45 minute drive east from Kamloops, or a scenic 2 hour drive north from Kelowna International Airport. The Lodge's guest rooms suffered a severe structure fire in the spring of 2022, resulting in losing the accommodation wing. Skwlx te Secwepemculecw have committed to a rebuild with hopes to open in 2026. The Resort is still open, including Le7ke Spa, Conference Center, Talking Rock Golf Course (seasonal) & Jack Sams Restaurant (seasonal).
