After a hectic tax season my spouse and I and another couple spent a few nights at Sparkling Hill. It is a gorgeous piece of property with incredible views. I ordered the men's Onyx spa package and scheduled four appointments in one day. I felt as though I was floating on clouds by the end. I'm not sure if I've ever been so relaxed. It was incredible! The rooms were great with lovely views. The free breakfast was delicious. We ate dinner there both nights and it was reasonably priced and delicious. We hope to go back annually. A fantastic place to relax and recharge.

A very unique furnishing resort with thousands of crystal. Her setting on top of the hill, not only shine from outside but also shine from inside. The room is exceptionally decorated with, of course, crystals. It is very romantic. Honeymoon couples should not miss this. The environment of the hotel ground is very well maintain. The view is just great! Highly recommended for holidays goers in all seasons. Wanna try many kinds of spa? This is the place!

We came here at the end of June as a couple in the middle of the week. We had heard about it numerous times, but we finally decided to give it a try as we were passing on the way from Vancouver to Calgary. The hotel/resort is located at the complete end of a windy road in a new development area that is roughly 20 min from Vernon. After staying for a night, here is our impression. Positives: - It’s really designed to maximize a stress-free relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are big and the view is great (yes, I would recommend paying a bit extra to get the lake view). - Rooms: far bigger than we anticipated with a massive floor to ceiling window. Beds are firm and comfortable. There is a small mini-bar fridge hidden in one of the cupboards. - Sauna & showers: As many other people have mentioned, the facilities (except the pool & hot tub) are only open in the morning and starting in the afternoon . It’s really meant for you to enjoy after doing some hiking, golfing or wine touring (we saw a wine tour van at the front, so clearly it’s an option). Our main criticism of the sauna rooms are the lack of cold options, to really have that “hot/cold/relax” cycle. - Hidden in the far corner of the hotel, there are a few other facilities we didn’t realize were there. There was a “quiet” room and a fitness studio. The gym is small, but well equipped. - The outside pool with the outstanding view was probably the best feature. You could spend hours there. There is a reasonable number of lounge chairs, but it might get crowded on weekends. If it gets cold, then you just to the indoor pool and hot tub. - The service is what really sets this place apart. It’s top notch with an attention to detail. For example the included valet parking will leave a complimentary water bottle in your car when you check out. Concierge service was swift (eg: ice bucket, forgotten items in the car). That being said, it was in the middle of the week too. On the downsides, there were a few things we noticed: - The main drawback aside from the cost is meal planning. Due to its isolated location, there are no restaurants or grocery stores nearby, just a golf course. There is no microwave available at the hotel neither. The morning buffet (included) is very nice, but lunch and dinner can get quite pricey. - Lack of intimacy: we had the room #206, which contained two big queen beds and one big open area. There is a standing wall separating the bedroom from the bathroom, but without a door. In other words, there is minimal privacy for the shower. Only the toilet has its own door. As a couple, it wasn’t an issue for us. But it’s worth asking to avoid any surprises if you are several people sharing the room. - The “library” is a mere reading room with only a handful of books. Is it worth it? At a regular price, it’s questionable. In all honesty, we did enjoy our stay, but we also had a corporate discount. Iif you manage to fully utilize the resort’s amenities with a promotion, then I would say the splurge is worth it. We did find a two night stay is recommended to fully appreciate a relaxing getaway. As a side note, military members get 40% off regular price.

We stayed here for a few days, and a lot of smoke enveloped the area because of the wild fire. SPA was perfect and comfortable. But other services are relatively high prices. the -110 degrees of freezing is a must to challenge the project.The restaurant's food will be disappointing. There seems to be no outdoor playground that can be used.

Nice destination hotel, with tons of attention to detail in architecture, spas, and decorating. Now they just need to put some detail into guest services. For example, no food or drink service at the pool, our first night we left the spa at 9:30 and all food and beverage was closed. Kinda weird that the steam and sauna rooms close from 11 - 4. The breakfast was basic, but decent. Dinner was very tasty. The service is great when dinner, breakfast, or coffee bar is open. The hotel is a ways out of town, so driving back to town is not convenient, extra services and hours would be good. I enjoyed my massage, my wife said hers was too gentle, so be sure to specify. Overall a great experience, would return if services are expanded a bit.
