Spa resort in harmony with mountain setting

November 01, 2009 |

The Sparkling Hill Resort and Wellness Hotel in Vernon, B.C., looks as if it was chiseled out of bedrock and jutting from the mountainside. Designed by the Victoria, B.C., office of Cannon Design, the 240,000-sf resort has 152 guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and spa-like bathrooms, as well as a signature 20,000-sf whole-body wellness spa with treatment rooms designed to feel like they're carved out of the resort's surrounding rocky landscape. The project sits on a geo-exchange field that's projected to provide 100% of the facility's heating and cooing energy. Completion is expected in 2010.
