SUSTAINABILITY AT BENCH D'OR
Whether you live in the Okanagan or are visiting, we are certain you will be inspired by the natural beauty of the Naramata Bench region. The below sustainability practices have been integrated into our operations with focus on reducing our environmental footprint.
Electric Vehicle Charging Station
If you are arriving via electric vehicle, we have you covered. We have reserved parking and 2 charging stations in our guest parking lot.
Almost all of our produce and ingredients are sourced locally in the Okanagan, from local fruit, vegetables and cheeses, and of course, wine. We have our own hens for farm fresh eggs who are fed from table scraps and the rest goes to our own composting bins.
Options to Get Around

Escaping the City?
Take in a deep breath! We are a 100% non-smoking property.
Our Guest Services Team will ensure guests have clean dishes and towels as required. During COVID room cleaning can only take place after departure, but for stays ;longer than 2 nights, linens and towels will be provided as required.
Heating and Cooling
We rely on a geothermal system for both central heating and air conditioning. BC power is 100% hydroelectric, totally green!
Limiting Environmental Waste
The Bench Coffee uses only ceramic cups or recyclable cups made of coconut husks. Recycling bins are in each suite, so please help us save the planet.
