We really enjoy the relaxation time and the special features of the resort. Other reviewers will tell you all about the wonderful spa, pools and sauna amenities. The location overlooking beautiful Lake Okanagan ringed by the mountain ranges is nothing short of stunning and right next door is the premiere golf resort Predator Ridge. Every member of the staff that... More

The location of this resort is amazing for the stunning view overlooking Okanagan Lake and the mountains surrounding it. There are numerous crystal chandeliers in the public parts - really quite amazing. However the beauty stops there - the architecture and decorating can only be described as austere. We had a room with a fantastic view of the lake. There... More

Thank you for your review. We are very fortunate to be in such a beautiful location with such stunning views! There are over 3.5 million Swarovski crystals throughout the hotel and you are right we do not have a lot of other decorations, with our floor to ceiling windows throughout the hotel, we truly try to invite the nature in!...

I have stayed at this resort a number of times and it is fabulous. The dining room meals are excellent. It's the only 5 star hotel I've stayed in where you feel comfortable walking around in your robe. It's very beautiful and staff are very friendly. Breakfast is delicious and the facilities are 5 star all the way....if you want... More

Stayed at the resort as part of a work function and while the resort is conventionally located near the golf course unless your there for the spa (which I wasn't ) there isn't any else there.

Thank you for your review. I am truly sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit. The heart of the hotel is most certainly the KurSpa and the main attraction for majority of our guests with our main focus being wellness. You are right, we do not have tea or coffee machines in our guest rooms as we... More

This was our 2nd trip here & we really enjoy it. There has been quite a bit of growth since the last time we were here, so, it seems some of the wildlife has moved on, which is sad.

Sparkling Hill Resort is absolutely the place to go to for a getaway and to just have a quiet mind (which is often very hard in our everyday lives).

If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing place to escape to, this is as good as any. The staff are awesome. The facility and setting are beautiful.

We saw that there were gift cards sold at Costco for Sparkling Hill and purchased $1000 for our upcoming wedding anniversary. But when we went online to book at their "Fully Prepaid Non-Refundable" which is significantly lower than their regular rates (more than a $200 difference per night), the online systems did not allow us to process it.
