“A must experience getaway; worth every penny.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I had the pleasure of visiting Sparkling Hill this past weekend, with a friend for one night.
All the staff we encountered were very helpful and welcoming. We arrived early and went for tea and coffee at the cafe while we waited for our room. Our server was so gracious and friendly and made for a great start to our getaway.
We were pleased to see how immaculate our room was. Not a detail was overlooked. We immediately continued onto the pools, saunas and steam rooms. They had the feel of many European spas I have visited in years past.
Upon arriving for dinner at PeakFine, we were seated promptly and ours meals exceeded many expectations. The menu was accommodating and the two courses we ordered were delectable.Sunday morning breakfast was perfectly appetizing as were our final visits to the pools and saunas.
I cannot extend enough gratitude to the staff as the weekend was incredible in every way. I will most definitely be visiting Sparkling Hill again in the near future!

Room Tip: The mountain views are just as spectacular as the lake views. I'm assuming that no room disappoi...

My mom and I visited Sparkling Hill recently and always enjoy our time there. We are so lucky to have such a spectacular facility in British Columbia!

Our dinner was top-notch: professional service, intimate ambiance, and delicious fare! Our massages the next day were both invigorating and rejuvenating. Michelle was amazing, using eucalyptus spritz to awaken my senses and it was heaven on earth!

Afterwards, we enjoyed the pool area including the kneipp waterway (hot and cold hydro therapy) and the outdoor pool. The scenery is out of this world!

This hotel offers a 135 promotion during Dec and Jan. It inlcudes a nice breaksfast and a drink. Dont try and check in before 4pm though because they dont want you using the pool and sauna/steam for two days unless you pay for two nights. The rooms are nice with a 2 person bathtub in the mainroom to take advantage of the fantastic views.Quirky? We were advised clothing was optional in the steam rooms after 9pm. And people would just roll out of bed without a wash or comb and head for the restaurant in their house coats. OK....... The pool and sauna/ steam room were great with themed steam rooms and cold/relaxation rooms. The outside infinity pool has a great view and was warm. Would stay again.

Room Tip: pay extra for a view room

My wife and I spent two nights at the resort! The rooms are very nice and very clean. Beds were super comfortable. Don't expect a "real" fireplace but some of the lighting is VERY cool! The view from our 3rd floor room was breathtaking! We live a stone's throw below the resort and could see our rooftop from the pool. Nevertheless .... we felt a million miles away. Only ran into one lukewarm employee. Everyone else was beyond friendly. I read reviews mentioning rubbery eggs and stale buns. I'm here to tell you that the buffet breakfast (which is included) was plentiful and delicious. Not sure what level of expectation those others had but they seem way off the mark. Spas are great especially for a wife who is "always" cold. Outdoor pool was very refreshing in the winter and my personal favorite. Dinner is pricey but there is an alternative for lighter but delicious fare. All in all .... a very high class destination that didn't come across as snooty. We felt very welcomed. Recommended!

Room Tip: Deluxe lake view is probably worth a few extra bucks!

Every one must go to this Fantastic Spa Resort, the staff were the best at any place we have ever stayed at, food was to die for, Spa area with the pools, hot tubes, steam rooms and sauna was all included in the room price. The Resort is a four diamond resort, the rooms were really special with a view of Okanagan Lake and the crystal fire place was really something to see.

If you have the chance this is one of those resorts you just have to go to to enjoy enjoy

Room Tip: get a room with the view of the Lake

This was a very unexpected treat. We knew it would be nice but exquisite was a surprise. From the room, the food, the spa and yes the cold sauna (we were exposed to -114.3 celsius, unique to say the least) to the great outdoors we brought 2013 in in style. I would highly recommend Sparkling Hills for your next retreat. Hills

Amazing views, wonderful restaurant, exceptional steam, saunas and pools! There is nothing like taking a swim outside at night at the top of a mountain in the middle of winter!! Exceptional! Will visit again soon!
