The Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort is now headed north. Originally opened in 1983 in Gilman, the spa has now relocated to Bella Vista Suites in the resort town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The boutique-style hotel focused on wellness retreats has 39 units, and each room has a private Jacuzzi for guests to enjoy. A short drive from Chicago, the Heartland Spa offers guest services that are centered on creating healthier lifestyles. With packages that include one-, two-, three-, five- and seven-night inclusive stays (or a oneday option with no room stay), options include fitness classes, deliciously healthy meals and relaxing spa treatments like Reiki and acupuncture. Guests can enjoy group classes and wellness experiences and learn from health experts in a beautiful and soothing environment. 

Napa Valley’s Meritage Resort & Spa recently debuted a new program designed to help groups gathering at the resort achieve more “Mindful Meetings.” The program, offered in partnership with Bare Health, can be custom tailored for groups and includes the following wellness-focused activities: meditation, yoga in the vineyard, sound healing, and the creation of juices, smoothies and morning elixirs at the resort’s brand-new Food & Wine Center.

 

After continually hearing that meeting planners were looking to infuse more health, wellness and sustainability into their agendas, Hilton Hotels & Resorts created Meet with Purpose in 2015. As it has evolved, the turnkey program—and its focus on Mindful Eating, Mindful Meeting and Mindful Being—has been increasingly customized to reflect each hotel and each meeting.

 

The Twin Cities’ culinary scene is more diverse than ever.
