Sparkling Swarovski Crystal decor throughout the resort

🌟 Sparkling Hill Resort and Spa

Sparkling Hill emanates the perfect romantic setting. The architect, Mr. Andreas Altmayer, the head of The Circle of Innovation at Swarovski in Austria, was the innovator for the use of Swarovski crystals. He incorporated 3.5 million crystals into the interior dΓ©cor of the resort. The windows are expansive and allow the outside sunlight to literally dance off the crystals. The combination of crystal and light creates an enchanting sparkling affect.

The lobby displays a beautiful crystal ceiling

The resort was the brain child of Gernot Langes-Swarovski, patriarch of the Swarovski crystal family. His interest in healthy living, and creating a European wellness retreat, drove him to build this resort in his beloved Okanagan Valley.
