“Vernon at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

What a wonderful place Sparkling Hill is.. From the minute you arrive you get top notch service.. very friendly and helpful staff. The steam and sauna rooms are very relaxing. The rooms were clean with great great views of mountain or lake.... breathe taking.One of our favorite experiences was swimming in the heated outdoor pool. It was not freezing but very comfortable to get into.. The icing on top was swimming while gentle snow flakes fell all around.. a must experience.. The tea room is peaceful and beautiful.. lovely organic teas severed.. A great place to relax or read a book. The breakfast which is is included was very nice... Overall a wonderful time.. Would go again for sure..

Sparkling Hills is a phenomenal stay with exceptional pools, saunas and steam rooms - lake view rooms have fantastic views over Okanagan Lake - worth the upgrade. The only factor that I felt was under 5 star par would be the meals.....good but not phenomenal -
We would certainly return.

Room Tip: Upgrade to lake view room top floor is worth while.

We came for my daughter's birthday. The service was top notch from the front desk, to the porter, to the dining room. The steam and sauna rooms are neat! Beautiful outdoor pool to swim in at night in February no less, under the stars and the moon! The dining room is gorgeous, food was fabulous. Our room is one of the most beautiful I've stayed in. Get a lake view. The crystals are placed throughout the resort. I came with sore muscles from skiing and after an hour in the spa was relaxed and pain free!

Room Tip: Pick a lake view room!

I have to say we had a amazing stay at sparkling hills! We stayed in January for 2 nights for my husbands birthday. The beds are so soft and comfortable and the view from our room was unbelievable. The saunas are amazing and a real treat. We took advantage of the heated (it was still a little cold) outdoor infinity pool even if it was snowing outside it was alright because the hot tub was right there.We received free breakfast buffet and it was very good (I love the little jam jars)and the views from the restaurant were also very beautiful. We would defiantly stay here again.

We checked in to the Sparkling Hill Resort for a little bit of a winter get-away, and I must say it was an excellent experience, albeit a little expensive for just under $400 per night for the mountain view. The room was clean and well appointed, and the spa, which is included in the room rate, was excellent. Staff members went above and beyond expectations to ensure that we were taken care of, from the cleaning staff that gave us a fresh towels on our way to the spa, to the front desk attendant that called our room to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We tried the breakfast buffet which was part of the room package. I would say that the food was acceptable, but a little less then what I was expecting from a 5-star resort. If you visit, bring some food to pack in the mini-fridge in the room. Drinks in the lounge/snack bar were reasonably priced by Okanagan standards. We will be back for a return stay.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views, save some $$$ and ask for the mountain view, which is just as nice as th...

This place is top notch...So over the top with the Swarowski crystals and it's gorgeous! The only thing I would recommend (if you're not a high roller like myself) pack some food in a cooler. They have a dine in restaurant, where you need reservations. This is the only place to eat in the evening. I found that out the hard way...They do have another little restaurant downstairs, but it's only open for a few hours a day (1-4pm or something similar).
The spa and steam rooms are outstanding..the entire place screams serenity!
If you're looking for a getaway to relax and unwind, this is it.

A little bit of a hike from Vancouver, but so very worth it!!

You must go and spend a night here it is such a beautiful resort, you won't be sorry. The service, the spa's, the food and the room were all fantastic. I have never felt so relaxed in my life there is such a sense of peacefulness there. I am looking forward to going back this fall!!

Room Tip: We had room #119 and found it a little noisy after 10 when people were returning to their rooms.
