About Eldorado Resort

Eldorado Resort - Hotel Eldorado and Manteo, is a luxurious wedding venue located in Kelowna, British Columbia. Set along the beautiful Lake Okanagan, it benefits from a charming setting that forms an ideal big-day backdrop. From the elegance of the outdoors to the sophistication of the interiors, this refined and contemporary place is colourful, relaxing, and convenient.

Facilities and Capacity

Thanks to the sheer size of this property, there is more than enough room for hosting a myriad of events. You can enjoy your engagement party, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and more at this multifaceted venue. Whether you are planning a celebration with just 20 people or a lavish festivity with up to 180 people, Eldorado Resort can accommodate either one. For the ceremony, the Sun Roof and Waterfront Patio offer an area where the happy couple can join together with their nearest and dearest. From here, generous views are afforded as the happy pair are joined in matrimony. Framed behind them, views of the water provide a magically romantic ambience. After the newlyweds have been pronounced by their chosen officiant, they can make their way to enjoy photo opportunities around the lakefront grounds. The marina, in particular, provides somewhere splendid for those Instagrammable moments.

For the grand reception, the wedding party may take their places inside the Great Room or the Waterfront Ballroom as they await the entrance of the couple. Chairs, tables and white linens are included to offer comfortable places for everyone to sit as they enjoy culinary delights.

Updates; Manteo at Eldorado Resort will be undergoing a cosmetic renovation, adding new carpet, wallpaper, and paint in February & March 2021.

Services Offered

Conveniently, clients can make use of an event-planning service so that their dream wedding is brought to life appropriately. With outside vendors welcome, the site can be personalized accordingly. In particular, photographers will be able to preserve numerous magical memories at many beautiful spots across the resort.

Accommodation is also available, meaning that invitees can stay the night after a long day of partying at a fabulous rate provided just for your guests.

Catering services available include hors d’oeuvres, plated meals, buffets, outside cake, and more. Bartenders are also on hand to serve beer, wine, and champagne, among other beverages.

History

Originally founded in 1926 as The Eldorado Arms Hotel, Countess Bubna brought the establishment to life. A social gathering hotspot for generations, it has changed hands several times over the years, but it has always retained its allure. Today, it plays host to weddings and other special occasions—and it could be the perfect stage for your “I do” event.

Manteo offers a modern flare to your big day. With fabulous lakeviews for both the ceremony and reception, it remains a timeless venue.

In 2014, Hotel Eldorado and Manteo joined hands, and in 2019 officially became Eldorado Resort while maintaining the history and styling of each hotel.

    Perfect Day!!

    Exceptional Staff. Gorgeous venue. Everything detail taken care of. Seamless event. What amazing staff, what an amazing venue. We cannot say enough about how the staff at the Eldorado Hotel handled our wedding having to be rescheduled. We had planned our wedding for a year and a half and then Covid hit. In our initial conversation with Erika, the Conference Services Manager, we were told that they would do anything to accommodate our wishes...plan a smaller wedding, reschedule our date... and oh man did they deliver! We moved forward with a smaller event, but the staff made our wedding feel like the most amazing wedding ever. Erika was with us every step of the way, guiding and supporting us, answering all of our concerns, big or small. On the day of our wedding everything came together without a hitch, the food was incredible, the venue set up was stunning and the staff again was the most amazing part. Thank you also to the General Manager who made this day one that will forever be in our hearts. We could not have asked for more.

    Always one of our favourite venues!!

    We absolutely LOVE everything about Eldorado Resort! The food is amazing, the boat rentals are so much fun, the rooms are stunning and the atmosphere is so unique, warm and inviting. As wedding photographers, it is one of our favourite weddings venues to refer our clients to as a wedding venue. Erika is incredible as the wedding coordinator; you can tell that she loves her job and the venue, has a perfect eye for details, responds to clients promptly, which is hard to find in the wedding industry these days. The resort itself is beautiful, to say the least. The ceremony and receptions areas, inside and outside of the building and, of course, the view. Whether you are a couple looking for their perfect wedding venue with everything in one place including accommodation for your guests and the most stunning getting ready rooms, looking for one of a kind accommodation for a holiday of stay-cation, a restaurant with incredible food and service, or even boat rentals for fun on the Okanagan Lake, look no further than Eldorado Resort!!

    Amazing small wedding at the Manteo

    Everything at the Manteo was fabulous and I cannot recommend it enough. The team was responsive, flexible, and accommodating, the venue itself is incredible with beautiful scenery, and the food was amazing.

    Perfect Wedding

    During a pandemic, a wedding planned on short notice, a day of biblical weather....the staff and management could not have been nicer or more helpful and attentive or more flexible. In the end it was perfect, the service was held outdoors as planned, totally stress free thanks to the wonderful management and staff. The wedding dinner exceeded all our expectations, everything was delicious. I can not rate the experience highly enough, thank you!
