Sparkling Hill is located in the Okanagan Valley, perched on the granite ridge of Mount Royce. Known worldwide for its European-inspired water spa, KurSpa, Sparkling Hill is the perfect spot for a complete reset or a recharging-focused weekend. Backed by the natural beauty of British Columbia, located on the traditional land of the Syilx Okanagan people, Sparkling Hill overlooks Okanagan Valley and the Okanagan Lake.
A four-diamond resort with a focus on holistic wellness, there are three restaurants on the grounds, PeakFine, Gerni’s Farmhouse, Barrique & Java, and room service options as well. PeakFine focuses on gourmet, farm-to-table meals, with an option to pair lunch or dinner with a wine selection selected by sommeliers. A complimentary breakfast and coffee service is served every morning at PeakFine, from 6:30 am to 10:00 am.
Named after the owner of Sparkling Hill, Mr. Gernot Langes-Swarovski, Gerni’s Farmhouse serves traditional Austrian fare, such as bratwurst, schnitzel, and strudel. The building, a 16th-century lodge from Weerberg, Austria, was dismantled and shipped to Canada in 2019 and was rebuilt by Holzbau Maier.
Barrique & Java is a coffee shop during the day and a cocktail lounge by night. Enjoy house-made pastries and coffee surrounded by stone and wood decor inspired by Vernon’s outdoors in the morning. Indulge in a glass of Okanagan wine or a cocktail at night, and enjoy light meals and snacks such as salads, cheeses, wraps, and pasta.
Sparkling Hill encourages luxurious relaxation. Our room service options are no exception. With a great selection of an in-room dining menu, the farm-to-table quality found at PeakFine and Barrique & Java is delivered right to your door. For smaller, more intimate celebrations, bottles of wine, antipasto and cheese plates, and hand-crafted gourmet chocolates can be purchased from the Enhancements To Your Stay menu.
With seven steams and saunas, KurSpa has made a name as a luxurious water spa encrusted with Swarovski crystals and nestled into the beautiful British Columbian outdoors. Available exclusively for guests of the resort, the 40,000 sq. ft. space is where stress and worries melt away.
With unique crystal architecture, gorgeous natural views, and the calming, soothing effects of the hot-cold European spa philosophy, Canada’s largest luxury spa has the perfect treatment for everyone. From full-body massages, reflexology, facials, couples treatments, and body wraps to the seven unique steam rooms and saunas with experience showers, allow your body, mind, and soul to bask under the soothing, ethereal glow of crystal-encrusted ceilings and the relaxing aura of the outdoors.
With three different pools, the exploration into ultimate relaxation continues, with the picturesque outdoor infinity pool, the indoor hot pool, and the indoor serenity pool floating through your day. The Kneipp Hydrotherapy walk is another feature of the resort and health spa, and a unique guest favourite.
Using water as a way of healing, the KurSpa draws on the centuries-old practice of traditional European water spas, as well as the natural beauty of its location. Guests are encouraged to speak softly and leave their phones in their rooms to fully immerse themselves in everything the KurSpa has to offer.
Stepping outside, the path to wellness does not end. Sparkling Hill is home to 25km of well-marked nature trails and offers guided hikes. With over 300 species of birds, exploring the open valleys, lakes, and wooded areas, so many species call home is yet another way Sparkling Hill draws on natural elements and its surroundings to fully immerse its guests in their personal healing journey fully.
