We recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary and decided on an evening away at Sparkling Hill. Having never taken a honeymoon or celebrated with an evening away, we figured we would splurge and I'm so glad we did. The room was simple yet comfortable and the view was breathtaking. We are locals but seeing your area from different view points never ceases to amaze me. Our room had a card saying happy anniversary as well as rose petals plus 2 chocolates on the bed. (thank you, Diandra!) We had dinner at PeakFine and it was incredible from start to finish from food to server. Ours even went above and beyond after learning it was our anniversary and had a little dessert plate done up for us and offered to take a photo for us. (Thank you, Shiho!) Breakfast buffet was utterly incredible. A variety of breakfast foods catering to every palate. We didn't get a chance to take in the spa but that was no big deal. Valet parking was a treat and the complementary bottles of water in the car for the drive home was very thoughtful.

This was an overnight stay for my wife and I as part of our honeymoon in Canada, it looked something truly special when I booked it online. It didn't quite live up to the high expectations I had. The reception staff on arrival were perfunctory without ever being particularly pleasant, some small chat with the customers can go a long way. Nevertheless, we were booked in efficiently and, despite some misdirection from the check-in staff, found our room. The room was intriguing in that it was very modern in its design, with Swarovski crystals, a bathroom without a door to it and a bay window which opened up to a beautiful vista. The bed was large and comfortable and the separate shower, whilst powerful, given its position, didn't offer any privacy should one need it. For such an establishment, it is bizarre that it offers no minibar or tea/coffee facilities in their rooms. We planned to check out the spa and sauna facilities but this is where we ran into some problems. They have strict rules on what can be worn/not worn in that area which is perfectly understandable however my wife wears a prosthetic and therefore her needs are a little different in terms of footwear etc. We spoke to both the reception staff and those working in the spa, trying to explain the situation but there was a notable lack of help or understanding for our situation. Unfortunately, this led to my wife becoming quite upset. We eventually spoke to the Reception Manager (Patrick) who apologised and offered a complimentary meal that evening (that didn't quite happen). I have to say though, we did eventually get to use the spa and sauna area and found it to be excellent, a great range of options for us to try out and all very clean and well-maintained. Only slight drawback was a rather noisy group in a supposed quiet area but that happens. We ordered room service that evening and the staff were excellent, the food was lovely and the staff were warm and friendly, even bringing us a complimentary glass of bubbly and chocolates. Very much appreciated given the issues earlier. The next morning we went down for breakfast and it was perhaps the biggest range of options I have ever experienced in a hotel, so much to choose from. It was a bit odd however that guests were allowed to walk in and out of the restaurant in just their bathrobes though. Would I recommend this hotel? Absolutely, but they could do with working with their check-in staff on their approach to customers and make sure the spa/sauna team are aware of what the word prosthetic means. Some tea/coffee facilities in the rooms would be useful too. They certainly cannot fault its location, design and food.

Our stay at Sparkling Hill was sublime! Our lake view room was on the small side but very comfortable and we loved sitting by the sliding window and also soaking in the hot tub. Spa treatments were wonderful and the steam rooms, pools, and saunas offered many wonderful and relaxing experiences. Book spa treatments when the steam rooms are closed for cleaning each morning-afternoon to maximize your time and reservations for dinner are a must. To get the most from your stay you might also want to consider taking advantage of their package deals - it will likely save you money in the long run. Breakfast afforded plentiful options and our dinners on both nights were romantic and delicious. Every corner of this resort offers opulent surroundings and we felt very special our entire stay. Hiking trails allow you to explore the hilltop area and the many lake and mountain views. We left Sparkling Hill feeling fully relaxed, refreshed, and dying to stay again. Highly recommended!

I had never been to Sparkling Hill Resort so when my sister arrived from Winnipeg and a friend arrived from Vancouver we thought we would try the Bistro for a glass of wine and Artisan plate. When it arrived at our table we were very disappointed. The menu description mentioned warm Cristini, fruit compote, various meats and cheeses. There was NO warm Cristini or fruit compote. Instead it was a plate of dry crackers and a few pieces of cheddar cubes, white cheddar, four pieces of a soft cheese. The plate looked like the leftovers from a previous function the night before. Some kind of antipasto bowl was included. Living in the Okanagan there are so many different local cheeses. Sparkling missed the mark on. This platter has set their food experience very low. The plate was priced at $19.00. I know the picture speaks for itself. We had thought of having a spa experience but due to the poor food we will search for another resort.

For my husbands birthday we flew from Vancouver to Kelowna then took a helicopter to the resort. When we landed the pilot kept saying someone would come out and greet us. No one did. We spent the next 10 minutes trying to find an entrance to the resort. We finally had to poke our heads into the staff lunchroom where one person reluctantly showed us where to go. We stayed in the most expensive suite (I'm pretty sure) and it was the most poorly appointed room I've been in. No coffee, tea, kettle, snacks or minibar! Why? Even the cheapest rooms I've ever stayed in offer this. The spa experience was so disappointing as well. We were briskly checked in, facilities were not explained, and the actual treatment was laughable. I had a foot massage and mud wrap thing. Even though I asked for more pressure it was more like somebody just applying cream to my feet. And I could hear the entire conversation in the treatment room beside me. My husbands massage was just as weak. Another indicator of uncaring staff was a broken glass outside didn't get cleaned up for hours. Valet walked by it and I guess cleaning it up isn't in their job description. And whoever finally cleaned up left chunks of glass behind. I completed the survey emailed to me after the stay and addressed all of the above concerns but haven't heard back from anyone. I thought this was a property we could return to but we won't be going back.
