I recently visited the new Sparkling Hill Resort just south of Vernon in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. Let me just say…WOWSA!!! You want Swarovski crystals…they’ve got ’em by the bucket loads!! It was developed by one of the Swarovski family members, and it’s an amazing showcase of crystals. Even the dazzling front entryway is designed in the shape of a crystal.
I didn’t get a chance to see any of the guest rooms, but I have it on very good authority that they are gorgeous. I believe the exact words my girlfriend said were, “…nicest hotel room I’ve ever stayed in.”
There are crystals everywhere! They’re even embedded in the walls lining the driveway, the staircase handrails and the signs for the washrooms.
The view overlooking Lake Okanagan is absolutely stunning. There are lots of siting areas and gathering spots where you can enjoy it. If you’re a golfer, it’s just up the hill from Predator Ridge Golf Club.
The spa looked stunning. Their website lists all the amazing spa treatments you can get (I love the sound of the circulation circuit pools my Aunt Jacquie used when she stayed at the resort).
Of course, the crystal chandeliers are spectacular throughout, but this was one of my favorites!
What do you think the chances are that Mark will organize a romantic getaway for just the two of us? You’re right! I’m going to book it myself!!!!
Oh, by the way, I’m in no way being paid by Sparkling Hill to promote them…but hey, I’m certainly not above taking a free night or seven…just sayin’!!!
