We stayed at Sparkling Hill Resort for 2 nights and loved many things about the resort. The architecture, rooms and ambiance are amazing! We enjoyed the many steam rooms, pool and leisurely walks around the property. That said, there were several things that we were not impressed with. Our first impression of the resort was lacking due to us arriving early and not being granted basic access to the resort facilities. We were early for our reservation and did not expect that we would be offered a room but the resort wouldn't even let us use the pool while we were waiting (even though we had a spa appointment that day). They told us that even with a spa appointment we couldn't use the facilities more than 45 minutes before our appointment. I have been to spas all over the world and they always welcome you to use the facilities before your treatment. Also, as the resort is basically in the middle of nowhere we just sat around waiting for our room. A major disappointment. When we finally were allowed to come in for our appointment I was VERY disappointed. I have had at least 75 massages in my life; some RMT and some not and this was by far the worst. I actually left the appointment half way through because it was too uncomfortable to stay. The therapist needed more training, too much oil was used and part way through she applied a tigerbalmish cream to my back which burned my skin and just felt all-around terrible. The resort has potential but they need practitioners that fit a resort that brands itself as a spa-destination.

Sparkling hills Package or no package, this place is expensive. That said, a lot of work (and money) has been invested in this spa resort. Great idea. Great property. A little more attention to the guest services needs to be done now. Okay, the negative first: signage, signage, signage. If not for my husband giving me instructions (after he had made all of the same mistakes), I might never have found it! The sign to enter the property says "Predator Ridge". The only indication Sparkling Hills is also there, is a small "crystal" swoosh-like display that I only noticed the next day when someone pointed it out. Once you leave the highway, the signs are few and you are on a rural road to nowhere. When driving through the housing development of Predator Ridge, there are very sporadic, small signs indicating Sparkling Hills Resort. One or two at the most. There is no sign at the road you actually have to turn right on, until AFTER you have guessed you turn right. An easy fix...customer service. I needed the massage I booked after getting there, I was so irritated! The restaurant (PeakFine) is a HUGE disappointment. As expensive as a high end Vancouver restaurant, the menu and food mediocre at best. I tell you no lie, the parmesan cheese in my potato gratin was moldy! We thought it was made with blue or stilton cheese, when the server asked the chef, she told us it was parmesan cheese...meaning, it was moldy. We commented on this. Our entree was not discounted, nor was there any other accommodation offered, like a dessert. Know that your choices of going anywhere else for food are a 20-45 minute drive away. The only other eatery on the property (Barrique & Java) is cheaper and excellent by the way, but stops serving entrees at 8pm. Only soup, sandwiches and baked goods available after 8pm. All that said, the included buffet breakfast at PeakFine is outstanding with very attentive staff, despite being very busy. So the positive. I had a good experience with my treatments (massage and facial). Experienced, friendly staff. My facial with "Denise" was a hilite. The spa itself is excellent. It is co-ed, the steam, saunas, showers, pools, jacuzzi, fitness room, Serenity (quiet) room, Tea Room...all impeccably clean, well laid out, well serviced with water to drink everywhere. Good customer service throughout. Note: European style (read: naked) steam room from 9-10pm for those interested. And lastly, nice touch with the bottle of water in the car when valet brings your car when checking out. This property is well thought out between the spa, baths, pools and many trails that can be hiked. Lots of privacy in the rooms whether looking over the lake or the hills. It seems all rooms have a view. The rooms have interesting lay-outs, are very clean, have luxourious beds and of course...lots of crystals under lighting. They are very nice. You need a minimum of 2 nights, 3 if you want to take advantage of the trails or golf. Bring your own charcuterie and wine for your room if possible. Room service is limited, very expensive and there is a $10.00 charge for "delivery". This resort is almost there in my view, but more effort needs to be put into customer service. Oh ya, and if you do a wine tour, don't book a spa appointment afterwards. I am NOT complaining about this...but we did not get back in time.

THe rooms are beautiful. The common areas beautiful. The spa itself impressive. The treatments average. Their masseuses are not RMTs and it shows. The service is underwhelming. The cocktail waitresses don't know what kind of vodka they have, what flavours, forget our nuts. A summer job, unsophisticated millennial working in a high end European owned boutique resort. They need to step up their training, teach the staff customer service. I get it's a small town pool of talent, so management should teach and inspire them with the European way. The restaurant ambience was terrible. A huge space, should be broken up, new lighting, carpet and furniture. Divide the fine dining from the family restaurant. They're not going to attract the well-to-do that have the million plus houses on the lake minutes from there that could be their regular customers. They need to step up the their game if they want to attract the sophisticated clientele.

Our arrival was greeted by very rude valet attendants. Strike one. The check in time was 4 PM and no access to the spa until checked in. Combined with a posted check out time of 11 AM, pre-dinner spar time is limited. Strike two. Items at the breakfast buffet were surprisingly limited. Strike three. On the +ve side, the spar is well appointed and service (other than the valets) cordial. But when you combine the long drive and the exorbitant price, I can't stop asking myself "Is it REALLY necessary"? The answer is a resounding NOOO!!!

My husband and I were bought a one night package as a gift. Our room was stunning and so was the atmosphere. We had great service the whole time! The spas and pools were beautiful and relaxing as well. We would recommend two nights minimum as one night felt a bit rushed. It is also important to note that there is NO night life here aside from the bar being open until midnight. Room service also ends at 9:30pm so make sure to bring snacks! I would highly recommend this as a relax-focused vacation.
