Sparkling Hill is everything it advertises itself to be and more. The property is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is extremely friendly. The steam and sauna area is amazing (though longer hours would be appreciated). Though I'm about to report a few negative things, I would go back again. The details that detracted from our stay would be so easy to... More

Loved my visit to Sparkling Hill with my daughter. It was nice to be in an adult oriented place. Loved our room, comfy beds, nice products, great shower and great soaker tub right in front of the window. Nice trails, with occasional wildlife sightings. Ok complimentary breakfast. Fabulous steam and sauna rooms. Highly recommend taking your own wine and snacks... More

This is a beautiful spot in the Okanagan..a short drive from the Kelowna airport, set up in the hills above Okanagan Lake. We arrived midweek during spring break. It was a busy afternoon and we weren't able to check in until just after 4:00 pm but we didn't mind waiting, just sat and looked at the gorgeous scenery. Our 1st... More

My weekend staying here was great! This hotel is located in such a beautiful spot, with lake and mountain views and secluded on the mountain. The Kurspa is amazingly relaxing, and i loved the steam rooms and outdoor pool. The room was beautifully laid out and the staff were all very nice and helpful. I didn't rate the hotel as... More

My third trip here, and brought my husband this time. We had a 1st floor lakeview and the view was second to none. Room 142 on an angle so a bit larger than standard room. Had an amazing crystal scrub, back massage and facial ! We dined at PeakFine and both enjoyed our meal. Fantastic blue cheese risotto - I... More

My mom was kind enough to give us a weekend at Sparkling Hill to celebrate our wedding. We'd driven past it many times and always thought it would be really special to stay there but out of our price range, but that made it perfect for such a special occasion!
