Crystal New Persuasion

Sparkling Hill Resort, 20 minutes from Kelowna airport and 15 minutes from Vernon, opened its crystal-adorned doors in May of this year. The hotel offers 152 guestrooms (each with its own crystal “fireplace”), a 2700 sq.ft. ballroom replete with crystal chandeliers in the shape of maple leaves, and a truly magnificent 40,000 sq.ft. spa and wellness centre.

In fact, it’s the Kurspa, with its focus on health and healing rather than aesthetics and pampering that makes this property so unique; that and the 3.5 million Swarovski Crystals that are used in every aspect its design.

After an intake interview guests are given a personalized program of treatments and remedies to follow during their stay, or they can enjoy some of the free facilities such as Fitness Studio, indoor, outdoor, and “hot” pools, and no less than seven (7) different sauna/steam rooms with varying temperatures, including the -110 degree Celsius “igloo”.

The food is outstanding, and although not busy at lunch, we were told that reservations for dinner are highly recommended. The Chef shops locally and organically and changes the menu almost daily based on the availability of the freshest ingredients.

Another attractive feature of the spa is the ‘no talking allowed’ Serenity Room, overlooking the north end of Lake Okanagan and Predator Ridge Golf Resort.

Serenity now.
