S p a r k l i n g H i l l R e s o r t a n d S p a [ 38 ] • # dayspamagazine • july 2017 How it stands out: With lots of bling. Sparkling Hill incorporates 3.5 million Swarovski crystals throughout the breathtaking Lake Okanagan property, including the 40,000 square-foot KurSpa and Clinic at KurSpa, which combines naturopathic and integrative medicine services ranging from acupuncture (45 min./$95) to intravenous chelation therapy (180 min./$145) and bio- identical hormone balancing (50 min./$125). "We're a whole-body wellness facility," points out spa manager Kelly Tarso. How it came to be: Opened in 2010, the $122-million Sparkling Hill Resort and spa is owned by Gernot Langes-Swarovski. The Austrian crystal baron decided to bring the European wellness experience to Canada after falling in love with the natural beauty of the Okanagan Valley. How it packages wellness: An array of packages aims to help guests meet specifi c goals. Sales and marketing manager Jacqueline Birk reports that Sparkling Hill's clientele is primarily 50 to 60 years old, with a female- to-male ratio of 75:25, but programs like the fi ve-night Whole Body Wellness Package ($248 per night single occupancy, $478 per night double occupancy) are attracting more 40- to 50-year-old health seekers and recuperating athletes. Increasingly popular is the detoxifying Fango Mud Wrap (just one choice from many included in the package) and add-ons like the minus-110-degree Celcius Cryo Cold Chamber Treatment (3 min./$45, or $300 for 10 sessions). What it includes: The fi ve-night package comes with three daily meals; unlimited activity classes; four hours of KurSpa treatments; one consultation with a kinesiologist, naturopath physician or spa manager; and scheduling guidance from a wellness coordinator. Access to the KurSpa facility includes use of seven aromatherapy steam rooms and saunas, indoor saltwater pool with starry Swarovski crystal sky, hot pool, outdoor infi nity pool, Kneipp Water Therapy, experience showers, igloo, relaxation area, tea room, Keiser-equipped fi tness room and movement studio. u destination: wellness COURTESY SPARKLING HILL RESORT AND SPA Sparkling Hill Resort and Spa Vernon, British Columbia, Canada
