On your next visit to Ocean’s Reach, consider a morning jaunt exploring historic downtown Bonita Springs, where you’ll find the beautiful Shangri-La Springs.
The 8.5 acre property features Mother Nature at her finest, with bountiful fig trees, tranquil butterfly gardens, manicured grounds, fountains and a certified organic garden.
As its operators say, “We believe the land itself has a great impact on health and vitality. People know when they walk on these grounds that they are somewhere special. It is described as magical, a strong energy, center of peace, sanctity and a sense of connection to all. The spring to which Bonita Springs gets its name is on these lush grounds. Two giant Mysore fig trees stand tall and full amongst the historic buildings where programs, dining and private events take place. The unique, rich landscape that makes southwest Florida known as a paradise is exemplified on these grounds. One can’t help but integrate the beauty of the earth and the power of its presence in all activities that take place at Shangri-La Springs.”
New this year is a “Tour and Lunch” package where you can choose from a Garden Tour or Historic Tour, followed by a farm-to-table lunch at the property’s beautiful organic restaurant, Harvest & Wisdom. Tickets are $38 per person and reservations are required. There is also a full-service organic spa at the property should you like to extend your experience until well into the afternoon.
Shangri-La Springs is located at 27750 Old 41 Road in Bonita Springs, about a 50-minute drive from Ocean’s Reach. For more information, call 239-949-0749 or visit shangrilasprings.com.
