Sparkling Hill Resort
Vernon, Rural British Columbia
As if sun-spangled Lake Okanagan didn’t deliver enough sparkle, this glitzy hotel is decorated with more than 3.5 million Swarovski crystals. It’s a decadence most wouldn’t associate with an holistic health spa, but Sparkling Hill Resort & Spa is more than a wellness centre, it’s the largest among luxury spas in Canada and a place to feel pampered, preened, and perfected. A futuristic building encased by timeless mountains, it presents fitness classes, meditation workshops, even relationship improvement services. You may feel relaxed, but you’ll have a few tricky decisions to make here: which of KurSpa’s 100-plus treatments do you try? Do you feast on upscale Okanagan Valley fare at PeakFine or on casual tapas at Barrique & Java? And do you swim indoors beneath a Swarovski crystal night sky listening to the pool’s underwater music, or outside in the infinity pool overlooking the lake?
