THE ULTIMATE OKANAGAN
Sparkling Hill Resort and SPA is a must visit place at least once in a lifetime!
It is literally perched on top of a mountain and overlooks magnificent lake Okanagan. There are some rooms with a mountain view and most of them with the lake view (in my humble opinion it doesn't really matter, as both views are stunning). Upon arrival valet parking attendant parks your car (this service is included with your stay). The reception attendants are very pleasant and willingly answer any questions. The hall is lit up by glorious crystal chandeliers and premier carpets lead guests quietly to their rooms.
The rooms are spacious, clean and well-designed. I especially liked the crystal fireplace, crystal sky lights and bathtub overlooking the mountains.
The mattresses are super comfortable - memory foam covered. There are three superb pillows to choose from. We had an amazing sleep. There is a cable TV for entertainment, news, music.
But the heart of this place is KurSpa with three swimming pools (one outdoor infinity swimming pool), Kneipp Hydrotherapy (simply pools with hot and cold water to fire up metabolism), four showers (actually this worth to mention, as thunder shower smells like thunder shower with sound and tropical shower with a smell of warm tropics). There are seven uniquely themed saunas and steam rooms. The most loved by me is Rose Steam room, Crystal Steam Room, Salt Steam Room and Igloo room (cold, smells peppermint).
There is a tea room offering everyone two hot teas (chamomile, African nectar), lemon and cucumber infused water, fruit. There is a Keiser equipped gym.
KurSpa offers a wide range of massage/wellness therapies and Cryo Cold Chamber. After wellness programs it is nice to come back to your lovely room. By the way, wearing robes and slippers is encouraged anywhere in the hotel!
After star gazing and a good night sleep, visitors are welcomed to five star breakfast buffet.
Variety of warm breakfast items such as scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, potatoes, oatmeal and cold items: cereal, cheese, vegetables, fruit, pastry, toast. The morning we had breakfast there were several drink options: blueberry smoothie, Sparkling Hill special drink, coffee, orange juice.
The address of Sparkling Hill Resort is 888 Sparkling Place, Vernon.
