Harvest & Wisdom at Shangri La Springs | 255/365 Things to Do

Shangri La Bonita springs

Many of you may not know that a long time ago, in the mid 1980’s, I worked at the original Shangri La Hotel in Downtown Bonita Springs, Florida.  The Cheatham Family owned it at the time.  The population wasn’t but a couple thousand people here so it was a job when I needed a job. I have always thought about it fondly and have watched the hotel go through many hands over the decades. The most recent owners have poured their hearts, souls and likely a fortune into bringing the hotel back to it’s glory.

A few days ago Jerry and I decided to stop in for lunch at Harvest and Wisdom in Shangri La.  Jerry ordered fish and I had the veggie burger. We both enjoyed our meals and then took a walk around the property after lunch.  He didn’t know that I had worked there so I gave him the grand tour. The hotel and the grounds are beautiful. 

If you are looking for a great venue for a special event keep the Shangri La in mind. It really is a special pot. My daughter even had her baby shower and I’ve had a few friends get married on site. It’s always spectacularly beautiful.

The Shangri La Springs is located on Old 41 Road in Downtown Bonita Springs, Florida.
