Sparkling Hill Resort

Sparkling Hill is a spa resort located in Vernon in Okanagan, BC. It is owned by the Swarovski family so the whole hotel is adorned in crystals, approximately 3 million of them. They are in the chandeliers (as pictured below) to the bathrooms signs.5dff3a64-679a-47f3-88cf-018a1b44dc3b

Sparkle, sparkle.

These are the views from our room. There are mountain view & lake view rooms. There are also 3 penthouse suites. The rooms do not have patios but have large sliding glass panels that let you enjoy the fresh air.

This resort holds a special place in my heart because it is where I got married. This is the Terrace where we made it official. It overlooks the lake and also has spectacular views.

Slow dancing for the first time as husband & wife. We had a small wedding (15 people) and were able to use their Gernot’s ballroom (holds 30 people.) There is also a larger ballroom that holds approximately 150 people. We had an intimate dinner with our guests and were given the freedom to design the 5 course menu ourselves.

Sparkling Hill offers a retreat for all kinds of people. They are located up the street from one of BC’s premiere golf courses, Predator Ridge. They are in the heart of wine country so you can do all the wine touring you like. You can also relax, do absolutely nothing and enjoy the resort in all its beauty. A gem in the Okanagan.
