Sparkling Hill Resort in Vernon, BC is a balance between opposing ideas. Situated amongst the rugged mountains overlooking Lake Okanagan, the resort is at once understated elegance and powerful, the shapes of the rooms and spaces are both organic and angular which is reflective of Swarovski crystals and the landscape, creating an interior that is both captivating and contemplative.
The term “Barrique” refers to barrels used to age wine, while ‘Java’ represents North American’s love affair with coffee! A combination between a coffee bar and wine bar addresses the changing needs of resort guests throughout the day. Ledgestone frames suspended crystal balls, visible through frameless glass, against the rugged rocks beyond. The effect is dramatic and creates a refined beauty balanced by nature. Savour pastries while gazing out at the morning light playing on the lake, sample imported cheeses with fine wine, or sip port at twilight next to the warmth of the fireplace. The beautiful setting and comfortable seating encourages guests to relax and enjoy the food, elevating their sense of well-being by promoting the ultimate indulgence; the luxury of time.
