It was a way for we three gals to celebrate our birthdays all at once and we were not disappointed, It is luxurious but be prepared it is pricey. Although the saunas and pools were available at no extra cost any other service came with a hefty price tag. There are a lot of nice hiking trails to take in...

The "almost" happened when the owner lit up a cigarette in the bar and then again in the restaurant. Not only did it stink up the place, it is against the law in British Columbia to do so. Really bad manners on his part. Not much the staff can do if they want to keep their jobs. Other than the...

I have stayed in many many hotels but this hotel is far and beyond the best experience we've ever had. The staff at this hotel are prompt, whenever I called for an extra glass or more hangers they were quick to appear with them. They were so professional, courteous and friendly. Often I've experienced hotel staff as uncaring, arrogant and...

I could wax on and on but will cut to the chase. This was a fantastic mom and daughter retreat!

We had a wonderful time in September at Sparkling Hills. Be sure to add it to your accommodations/experiences list when heading to the Okanagan Valley. With its large modern design...million Swarovski crystals throughout the building and even a crystal fireplace it was a unique and exceptional experience. They take dogs too which for us was a real bonus.
