  • PeakFine Restaurant
    The name of our fine dining restaurant at Sparkling Hill Resort, PeakFine, has been adapted from a European term, “piekfein”, meaning ”the best”. Adding our own twist, “peak” represents our location on top of a hill and “fine” respects the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients that go into all our dishes. Quickly becoming a favourite among Vernon, BC restaurants and headed by the culinary team, our hotel restaurant serves breakfast and lunch with the highlight being a superb three-course dinner with recommended wine pairings. All are to be enjoyed in a luminous surrounding of Swarovski crystals, positioned to catch the sunlight reflecting from the water of Okanagan Lake.

    Complimentary Breakfast
    Sparkling Hill Resort offers a full hot European-inspired, complimentary breakfast buffet to complement your health and wellness goals. Served every morning from 7 a.m. – 10 a.m. in PeakFine, our buffet breakfast teems with light fruits and juices. Notable among them is our Sparkling Hill Start-up Juice, our stimulating mixture of apples, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and spices. Buffet breakfast items range from fresh fruit salads to scrambled eggs and proteins, as well as a selection of fresh baked goods that changes daily. Complimentary coffee station is available starting at 6 a.m. at PeakFine. Dining in your robes is highly encouraged. 

    Lunch - Seasonal menus
    With lighter fare to keep you going throughout the day, our lunch menu offerings will tempt your palate with delicious salads, soups and flavourful mains. With a couple of dessert options for a boost in the middle of your day, you will definitely look forward to lunch at PeakFine.

    Dinner - Seasonal menus
    The star of the show - our three course dinner - is a staple in our packages to ensure guests enjoy the bounty of the Okanagan. Through all three courses, the finest local ingredients are showcased in the artistry of our culinary team. 
  • Barrique & Java Coffee and Wine Bar
    The name Barrique & Java speaks to this space’s delightful dual purpose. By morning, it’s a cheerful venue to enjoy a coffee and house-made pastry. Stone and wood décor reflect the inspiring outdoor Vernon scenery. By evening, it becomes a cozy locale to gather for conversation over a glass of wine and enjoy light farm to table fare including salads, cheese and charcuterie plates, paninis, wraps and pasta. Join us for our daily happy hour that favours selected Okanagan wines and local craft spirits.

    While enjoying your spa retreat, break for a cup of java while overlooking Okanagan Lake or wind down in the evening with a glass of wine from our carefully curated list.

    Happy Hour
    The perfect place to gather in the evening, Barrique & Java serves up specials everyday between the hours of 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. Our Happy Hour features $3 off selected house wine by the glass and daily cocktail and drink specials. Indulge in our delectable evening snacks while relaxing with a friend or special someone.

    Wine Menu

KurSpa Treatments & Services The heart of our resort, KurSpa is the largest spa in Canada and is comprised of over 40,000 sq. ft of tranquil European-inspired spa, clinic and wellness centre amenities. Work with our team of healthcare professionals - including naturopathic physicians, spa practitioners and our resident kinesiologist - to experience true relaxation and rejuvenation with customized wellness packages. KurSpa is the perfect setting to renew your mind, body and spirit.

Unique in both concept and design, KurSpa’s complimentary amenities promote whole body wellness. Each separate sanctuary is designed to maximize mind and body relaxation. Follow our European spa philosophy of hot-cold-rest as you move through our themed steams and saunas, experience showers, pools, and relaxation rooms. Exclusive access to KurSpa is included in your stay at Sparkling Hill Resort.

Wellness Clinic
Restore optimum physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health at the Wellness Clinic at KurSpa. Our clinic combines services of a naturopathic clinic, integrative medicine clinic, and full-service spa under one roof. Focusing on whole body wellness, the Clinic provides services that target everything from treating inflammatory conditions and allergies, to providing mental tools through the custom FOCUS relationship programs developed by Dr. Pieter Strauss. 

Treatments and Services
KurSpa offers over 100 different treatments and services. From relaxing massages, revitalizing or curative facials, services for couples, or our signature services - Fango and Cryo Cold Chamber - there is something for everyone. The wellness clinic offers treatments that eliminate chronic pain and inflammation, defy aging, and improve health, relationships, and work-life balance.

The Wellness Clinic at KurSpa is the only health spa in North America to offer the three chamber approach to Cryo treatments. Guests become quickly used to the cold as any residual moisture evaporates from the skin within the first two chambers. By the time you enter the -110 °C chamber the cold is quite bearable due to the almost 0% humidity. Lead through the experience by our kinesiologist or spa professional, you then stay in the third chamber for a total of 3 minutes. The blood vessels quickly build a protection zone while your core body temperature is maintained. The effect of this whole body treatment is systemic. During and after the cold treatment, your nervous and circulatory systems are given a boost. For longer lasting results, subsequent treatments are suggested.

Effective For:
Traditionally, guests that have completed a series of Cryo Cold Chamber treatments have noted improvement with the following:
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain (accompanied by inflammation)
  • Spinal syndromes
  • Tendinopathies
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Blunt joint trauma
  • Psoriasis
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Central fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
Athletes and Recovery Time
A growing application for Cryo Cold Chamber treatments is aiding in the reduction of recovery time for athletes post injury or surgery. The treatment can be used before and after surgical repair of joints, ligaments and muscles to control the swelling and aid in the flow of oxygen and nutrition to the affected area. After a Cryo treatment, athletes have experienced pain relief that can last several hours, perfect for conducting movement for physical therapy and manual treatments. Schedule multiple treatments for the best results.
