Vitality through Art and Nature

OUR MISSION

We work to rejuvenate our historical position as a beacon for downtown Bonita Springs by welcoming one and all to experience this hidden gem of southwest Florida. Behind the gates we passionately preserve the acres of verdant grounds which embrace all activities. In this privileged setting, multi-media artistic events are held to elevate local talent while generating community.

For the sake of health and purity, we utilize organic and non-GMO locally-sourced goods and produce, pesticide-free and preservative-free ingredients, all the while conscious of sustainability and animal welfare. We incorporate the most natural practices into our services with a focus on vitality. We seek and hire practitioners and staff who cater to the individual while creating community and a connection to nature.

As the world changes around us, we hold to these ideals ensuring that Shangri-La Springs will be a sanctuary for future generations as it has been for generations past.

A Rich History

In 1921, the Heitman family constructed the Heitman Hotel on eight acres of land in the heart of what is now Old Bonita. The family was developing property to the west and the 25-room hotel provided potential buyers a place to stay while their new homes were constructed. The natural spring for which the town is named is located on the grounds and flows into Oak Creek.

A Lost Horizon No More

In 1998, when the property became available for purchase, Addison Fischer and Heather Burch, both long-time conservationists, acquired the property through the Lama Hana Land Trust, to protect the integrity of this important landmark in Bonita Springs.

Vision Statement

This is a journey together to restore that wholeness, to heal that broken-ness, to mend that hoop. Shangri-La nurtures that feeling of sacred ground allowing us, through the creation of a healing place, in some way contribute to the restoration of understanding, of creating sacred ground in all the different areas of our lives.

We are sacred ground. We are organically growing.
