My wife and I stayed here for four nights for our minimoon. The service was very professional right from the start. Make sure to read up on how the spa operates and what is expected as far as dress code. Once you start feeling comfortable wearing a robe everywhere it really becomes an oasis of relaxation. We slept so good... More

A relaxing experience! While I don't do a lot of spas I really enjoyed Sparkling Hill. The staff were helpful and the saunas and pool were a great treat. Restaurant was awesome, service was fabulous, wine list was impressive. Breakfast was great and even had gluten free options. View from the room was amazing. The only catch is to ensure... More

I stayed here for two nights via an offer booked on Sparkling Hill's webpage. What a marvel this property is. From the valet parking reception, to the friendly check-out, this resort is a sparkling jewel in the crown of BC's hotel options. It is worth the drive to Vernon for a long weekend well-spent. The sauna area is absolutely amazing.... More

Sparkling Hills is slowly making changes towards becoming a health spa. I am still confused with there lack of healthy food options as they advocate health and wellness yet there is very little for organic, local produce. However they do have a multitude of high fat high sugar indulgences in their coffee bar. They have brought on a Naturopathic Dr... More

Stayed at the hotel overnight on June/03/13 to celebrate an anniversary. Despite some of the other reviews check in was easy and efficient; we arrived about 1/2hr before the official check-in time and were allowed to access our room right away. Other than the spa facilities, there appears to be only one bar and one restaurant, which seems more in... More
