Lose Weight. Transform Your Life. Be The Best You.

Give yourself a jump start on a healthier lifestyle and start living your best life right now.

Your weight is creeping up and keeps getting more difficult to control. No matter how hard you scold yourself, you struggle with committing to regular exercise and healthy eating habits.

Deep down, you feel guilty for letting it get to this point. You know what you should be doing to live a healthy and active life, yet you don’t have the energy or willpower to actually implement those changes. Even when you do manage to get started, you can’t seem to commit long-term.

You know you need to make a lifestyle change, and you will - one day.

Except life is already too full. You’re so busy taking care of the people and things around you that you don’t actually remember how to make yourself a priority anymore. You know you are supposed to ‘put your own oxygen mask on first’, but understanding and doing are two very different things.

You can only imagine how life would be different if…

  • You woke up feeling upbeat, with energy that lasted through the day
  • Your clothes fit better, your skin looked healthier and your mind felt clearer
  • You found time for physical exercise you actually enjoyed that energized rather than drained you
  • You understood and were in control of your food habits instead of them controlling you
  • You felt the confidence to actively live your life, rather than staying on autopilot for another year


Be The Best You is more than a weight loss program. It’s an immersive wellness experience designed to teach you the physical, emotional, and mental tools to live your best life - starting with where you are right now.

Working closely with our team of wellness professionals, this 8-day / 7-night group wellness retreat integrates all the components of a healthy lifestyle - nutrition, cooking, physical activity, rest and relaxation.

The natural beauty of the Okanagan and the luxurious atmosphere of our spa resort provide the perfect setting to focus on learning the concepts, developing the skills, and practicing the habits and routines of a healthier lifestyle.

Your health won’t correct itself. There is no better time to get started than right now.


Take the guesswork out of finding separate exercise, nutrition and mindset solutions with our
integrative, all-inclusive wellness retreat customized to your unique challenges and needs.

  • Life changing, absolutely.

    “It will be hard not to tell people. I can’t wait to testify about what this week meant to me. Even if you don’t have a weight problem per se, there is WAY more to it than weight loss. That just came naturally.

    I definitely conquered my bad coffee and eating habits. It was difficult at first, but now that I’m into it it is so easy to go on from here and moving forward.

    When I came in here I could barely walk. I had osteoarthritis, osteoporosis… I was just a mess. I think the Cryo Cold Chamber and the Kneipp waterway improved my blood circulation so that I don’t have any pain right now. Not in my knees, not in my hips, not in my fingers. So, I’m very grateful.

    The program is so well designed. From the breathtaking early morning hikes to the amazing muscle relaxing massages after a hard exercise class, enjoying delicious meals while the chef explained the healthy way of preparing it, and challenging yourself to go into a -110 degree celsius cold sauna.

    There is something so unique and special about Sparkling Hill that from the moment you step inside you feel different. I think everybody should do this.

  • It taught me that I can do it.

    I was wanting to get a real reset on my health habits. My eating, my exercise, my sleep. I just wanted to think about what I have done in the past and how I can make a difference in the future.

    It has changed my confidence, my ability to be in control of my eating, and to be in control of my exercise.

    I’m pretty impressed with the changes, particularly my blood sugar that I had been struggling with, and my weight loss. I’m just looking forward to moving on from here and keeping things in a positive light.

    This program would be a good fit for people who really need that restart in their life to see the confidence they can gain and the control they can get back.
