KurSpa in Vernon voted one of the best in BC

“If pure indulgence is what you’re looking for….”

BC Living magazine has released its list of Top 10 Best BC spas for 2017, and Vernon’s own KurSpa, at Sparkling Hill Resort, is on it.

“If pure indulgence is what you’re looking for in a getaway,” said BC Living’s Cadi Jordan, “this is your stop.”

A blend of the German word for healing and the Latin word for water, the name KurSpa, according to the resort’s website, personifies the holistic value of health and wellness in mind and body—and Jordan concurs.

As the largest among luxury spas in Canada, it is comprised of more than 40,000 square feet of treatment space, and is considered by many to be the most unique spa in the world. It is also the first North American wellness spa to offer Europe’s popular Cryo Cold Chamber as one of its signature treatments.

Other B.C. spas to make the list are:

Casbah Day Spa in Surrey

Madrona del Mar on Galiano Island

The Spa at Painted Boat Resort in Madeira Park

Scandinave Spa in Whistler

Chi, The Spa at the Shangi-La Hotel in Vancouver

the Wild Orange Spa in Abbotsford

Spa Utopia in North Vancouver

Melt Mineral Spa in Penticton

Sabai Thai Spa in Vancouver
