Reviews of Sandalwood Retirement Resort

Gain exclusive insight into life at Sandalwood Retirement Resort. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

It’s significant that Sandalwood has both staff and residents who have been here for more than a decade. Drive into the property here, look around, and you’ll see what inspires such loyalty. There’s beauty throughout, ranging from the beautifully landscaped exterior and gardens to the fun lifestyle seniors live here.

Inside, find the kind of amenities you’d expect in a seniors’ resort. Features include a hair salon, a piano lounge, a fitness centre, and a movie theatre, complete with retro design that takes you back to your youth. You can relax and read at leisure in the library, or play billiards in the sports lounge.

Staff is an integral part of the community, joining in activities and adding to the fun atmosphere here. In addition, family members are encouraged to take part. You’ll find the setting inspiring for other reasons, too. Suites are exceptionally comfortable and spacious. Floor-to-sky lighting in the dining area enriches the experience there. The greenery of the courtyard makes it a wonderful place to relax in summer.

This rich elegance understandably attracts good people, which is what you find. Sandalwood is an elegant resort-like experience that packs in enjoyment, a true focus of life here. People not only “love living here” but they also live long here, thanks to that.

Jean, senior

All the get-togethers and the staff are just phenomenal. There’s the gym, the book club, all the different game and card games. We have entertainment that comes in which is wonderful.

Lorraine, senior

We have a pastry chef and our deserts are so delicious. We have an Executive Chef so our meals are prepared fresh everyday. I just have to tell everybody how happy I am because I love it here.

Doreen, senior

It’s just such a pleasant place to be. It’s like being on a cruise.

Jean, senior

I knew it was just what I was looking for. I walked in, had an interview and just fell in love with the place.

Marjorie, senior

My family thinks it’s great that I’m here because I’m being looked after. People that live in these places benefit from the care in every way, the meals, knowing your safe and what not.

Kimberly Manky, family member

I had the opportunity to visit the Sandalwood Residence this Christmas when visiting my Grandfather, Rev. Stan Smith. I was so impressed with the effort of the staff – from the greeting my family received when we walked through the front door, to the amazing Christmas decorations and the wait staff at the Christmas dinner that were so patient with any requests from their patrons. [We had] the grand tour and we were in awe of the facilities... Offering residents such great amenities shows great respect for their individual talents and interests, and offers them the opportunity to explore new ones.

My Grandfather has lived at Sandalwood for nearly a year and it has been such a great move for him. In his last home, he felt quite alienated and lonely... He continually praises the staff and facilities at Sandalwood. But it wasn’t until I experienced it for myself that I truly understood what a unique place Sandalwood is! There is such a sense of community at Sandalwood, and my Grandfather has certainly appreciated this. He has made great new friends and is never at a loss for things to do! My family and I are so happy knowing that he is well cared for and has found such an amazing place to call home.

Jacqui H., senior

Best retirement resort in Kelowna. Great food by Chef Doug. Staff very friendly & helpful. Happy residents with lots of smiles.

L Stevenson, family member

Really nice place in every way! My son and I visited recently, joining in many meals and attending the Friday Happy Hour. We were treated in a welcoming way, [enjoying] the pool table, theatre, library and weight room... It did my heart good to see my Mom and her husband in this fun, loving and supportive environment.
