Shangri-La Springs

Built in 1921, this legendary property in downtown Bonita Springs is the hidden treasure of Southwest Florida. Nestled among a lush botanical garden, the resort restaurant sources its food from the property’s certified organic gardens. There’s also a full-service spa offering natural, organic body treatments and a steam room, sauna and private courtyard. The extensive program line-up includes yoga and crystal bowl meditations, weekly live music and various workshops. Works by local artists and artisans are featured in the charming gift shop. Free, multi-media art and nature nights happen every second Wednesday, and the beautiful Great House gallery showcases new local artists every two months. Sign up for the garden and history tours and learn about the spring on the property from which Bonita Springs gets its name and about the rare giant Mysore fig trees that canopy the historic buildings. The unique, rich landscape that makes Southwest Florida known as a paradise is exemplified on these grounds where paradise is found. 239-949-0749; www.ShangrilaSprings.com.
