Before planning your stay we strongly advise all guests to refer to the BC Provincial Health Officer’s (PHO) province-wide restrictions and Interior Health’s COVID-19 information page. If you have traveled and are re-entering BC, please refer to the current Travel Guidelines.
Upon your arrival, it will be just a few more minutes before you can start enjoying all that Sun Peaks has to offer, and we appreciate your patience during this time.
Expect to see clear directional signage as well as our staff to guide you every step of the way. There will be clearly marked areas for guests to stand, and our check-in process will be as contactless as possible.
Please note that check in time is not guaranteed before 4:00 pm. Check out time is 11:00 am. We are currently not able to offer late check-out times; we require the additional cleaning time in preparation for our next guests.

We regret that we are unable to provide valet parking at this time. However, self-parking is easy, quick, and accessible.
To ensure social distancing measures are effective, luggage assistance will not be offered at this time. Luggage carts will be cleaned and sanitized for your use, prior to your arrival.
In addition to the regular cleaning of your room, we’ve introduced an advanced oxidation process to service your room prior to your arrival. This process features a broad spectrum UV light and a quadmetallic target that combine to generate nature’s friendly oxidizers: hydroperoxides, hydroxides and super oxide ions, to kill microbes, reduce odors and gases, sanitize soft surfaces in the space.
The equipment we have recently invested in is being used at many hospitals in Canada.
Stay-over housekeeping service will not be offered at this time. Housekeeping staff will not enter your room during your stay unless specifically requested and they will only enter if you are not present in the room. Full housekeeping service will only be offered for stays 5 nights or longer, serviced on the 5th night. If you require any additional linens, bathroom amenities, or otherwise, please call us and we’d be happy to deliver it to your room.
The hotel will provide hand sanitizer stations at several areas throughout the hotel including front desk, entrances, and elevators. Additionally, all high touch surfaces in the Upper & Lower Lobby and Residences Lobby will be cleaned and sanitized frequently. Additional garbage/recycling receptacles have been placed in many locations.
Our food & beverage teams are ready to provide you with a safe and delicious dining experience.

RESORT WIDE SAFETY INITIATIVE
As you explore Sun Peaks, you will notice consistent signage across the resort that will provide guest instruction for physical distancing and mask policies. This may include entry to smaller shops and cafés as well as areas such as the SunBurst chairlift, where lines may form.
We have implemented new onboarding protocols for our employees, including a commitment to frequent hand washing, personal hygiene, as well as completion of health declarations. We are providing all necessary PPE to our employees and where appropriate, equipment use will be mandatory.
Finally, we are abiding by all Worksafe BC guidance for creating a safe environment for employees to perform their work. This includes the elimination or substitution of certain tasks and the implementation of new engineering and administrative controls.
