CALGARY – June 20, 2019 – Fairmont Hot Springs Resort is pleased to announce the completion of its extensive natural mineral hot springs pool renovation, which began in January 2019. This is the first major renovation to the pool in its 60-year history and made possible by an investment from the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC).

“These pool upgrades reflect the incredible mountain vistas that surround the property,” says Fairmont Hot Springs Resort CEO Vivek Sharma. “Our pools are sourced directly from the largest natural mineral hot springs in Canada, and I look forward to welcoming guests of all ages to the one-of-a-kind rejuvenating experience. We are grateful for the financing from BDC that has made the impressive transformation of our pools possible.”

“Access to capital is vital for growing Canadian companies,” says Michael Selci, Senior Vice President, Prairies Region, BDC. “We are pleased to have provided financing to Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for this valuable project as they expand their service offering and generate economic returns for their community.”

The Resort worked closely with highly sought-after specialist Evolution Pools and Spas to plan and execute the major renovation, resulting in an inspiring and relaxing hot springs paradise. Guests will immediately appreciate the new natural rock poolscape that seamlessly blends into the Resort’s stunning Columbia Valley surroundings, reminding visitors of the mineral-rich water’s source deep in the mountains.

“This was an incredible project and I am thrilled to see our shared vision come to life and be enjoyed by guests from across Canada and around the world,” says Danny Tarasewich, owner of Osoyoos-based Evolution Pools and Spas. “It’s a beautiful new space and I am proud to have taken part in its transformation.”

Upgrades completed this year in addition to the new poolscape include:

  • A zipline over the lap pool
  • Expanded pool decks, naturally heated by the hot springs water
  • Two new diving boards
  • A mountain-inspired water feature
  • New piping and infrastructure
  • New sustainable lighting
