Coast Hotels is expanding its Okanagan region offerings with the addition of a brand new property in Oliver, British Columbia. This new build will be located in the town dubbed the ‘Wine Capital of Canada’ near the south end of Canada’s famed Okanagan Valley and wine region, that is only 25 kilometers north of the US border.
The new property complements the brand’s strong B.C. presence and it’s existing locations in Kelowna, Penticton and Osoyoos, providing travellers with the opportunity for complete Okanagan experiences and itineraries.
The branding of the hotel will be done with Mundi Hotel Enterprises Inc. who purchased the lot from the Town of Oliver. President and leading industry veteran Ron Mundi selected Coast Hotels for its winning combination of friendly service and exceptional guest value.
“As a business we focus on ensuring strong asset value and revenue generation, while playing a vital role in each community. We made the decision to expand our relationship with Coast Hotels as the brand flag for Oliver, given they share the same values, performance focus and community approach we do” said Mundi.
The addition of the new Oliver property builds on the brand’s strength in its home province bringing its total to 36 properties in Western North America covering two provinces, two territories and five US states. “
Oliver Town Council unanimously approved the new hotel on the site. “This investment will support revitalization of the downtown and have economic spinoff benefits for the broader community” said Mayor Ron Hovanes. “Mundi Hotel Enterprises Inc. and Coast Hotels truly celebrate local destinations, so we are looking forward to seeing the property embrace the character and authenticity of our community” Hovanes added.
The Coast Oliver hotel will feature 80 bedrooms, an indoor pool, breakfast room and future restaurant, and will offer guests Coast Hotels brand standards like triple sheeting and complimentary high-speed in-room Wi-Fi.
Construction is slated to start in 2017 with a planned opening in the summer of 2018. The quick-to-market timeline is possible through modular construction, which will be done by Horizon North Logistics, a leader in the modular construction industry.
