UPDATE: Over the past weeks, the team at Sparkling Hill Resort has been following the developments surrounding COVID-19 very closely. It has been a rapidly evolving situation, and we have been adjusting our response on a daily and sometimes hourly basis as new information continues to come to light. Although no cases have been related to the resort, it is with a heavy heart that we announce based on the most recent update provided by the BC Provincial Health Officer this afternoon, Sparkling Hill will temporarily close its doors. This closure will take effect at 12:00 PM on Saturday, March 21, 2020.

Hans-Peter Mayr, CEO, Sparkling Hill Resort

Adorned in crystals and situated on top of a granite bluff overlooking Lake Okanagan sits Sparkling Hill Resort, is one of the premier destination spa resorts in the world. The resort is offering a modern oasis of well-being in the face of the coronavirus.

“When we opened our doors in 2010, we were proud to begin carrying out Mr. Gernot Langes-Swarovski’s vision of being a destination where our guests can come to truly focus on their physical and mental well-being. We are extremely honoured to be a property that offers this experience to primarily Canadian guests, many of whom visit us from close to home. In light of the recent challenges presented by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we feel that this commitment to the health of our guests and team is more important than ever.

“As a resort dedicated to health and wellness, we have stringent hygiene and sanitization protocols in place year-round to preserve a clean and safe environment for our guests and team. In addition, we are actively taking additional measures. These include additional sanitization of frequently contacted surfaces with medical-grade disinfectant as well as a higher frequency of thorough handwashing by all of our team members.

“Sparkling Hill is very grateful to be an environment where our guests can utilize our many amenities and services to strengthen and support their immune system and overall health, as well as provide an escape from the stressors of our chaotic world.

“We have an exceptional team of dedicated health professionals at the KurSpa and numerous services we offer that can assist in a boost to your immune system and provide preventative health during this uncertain time.

“Sparkling Hill will continue to closely monitor the information and recommendations available from the BC CDC, and will reassess and adapt our response on an ongoing basis to ensure we are taking all necessary preventative steps. “
