For hundreds of years, South Pacific Islanders have harvested beautiful Tiger Striped Clams for food, and then thrown the shells away. Lava shell is a 100% natural tiger clam shell. It is sourced in the Philippines and is collected from a food waste product. This not only provides food but also jobs for the local industry on the island. The locals prepare the shell for use in massage by sand polishing them in to a smooth tool and gluing them back together and cutting a small hole to place the sachet inside the shell. This all natural, self-heating technology combines a blend of food-grade minerals with water, this unique system creates a consistent, reliable, and powerful heat, without electricity. These simple, all natural ingredients create no harmful byproducts and are environmentally friendly.
There are several benefits to heated treatments including:

Homeostasis is when all the body’s systems are working in harmony with one another to bring about a state of balance. A foot massage can encourage homeostasis so that good health can be obtained.
Foot massage is restorative in that it gives the receiver energy. When the foot is rubbed and palpated, all the elements of a foot massage come together to bring energy to the body. According to theories of reflexology, foot massage releases any blockages that can hold back energy that should be flowing through the body freely.
Stimulation of reflexes in the feet through massage is an action performed to bring about relaxation and healing. Relaxing the body through foot massage may prevent the harmful effects of stress from taking a toll on the body. A regular foot massage can offer protection against the many diseases that are associated with stress.
60 Minutes - $110
Our Seaweed Facial is rich in beneficial minerals, vitamins amino acids and trace elements. In fact, seaweed contains virtually every mineral found in the ocean - a concentration nearly identical to the minerals found in human blood. The positive effects of seaweed on other health conditions - including menopause relief and many other conditions we face. Through a calming process that often consists of several steps, the facial works quickly to reveal smooth, refreshed, glowing skin. It infuses the skin with a "diet" of minerals and vitamins, which eliminate impurities and toxins and leave the skin soft and hydrated.
If the promise of vibrant skin isn't enough, consider this: Greek mythology suggests that Aphrodite, the goddess of love who rose from the water, owed her beauty to the plants of the sea. Her dewy skin may just be advertisement enough for this nurturing, pampering treatment.

Our estheticians will begin with a thorough assessment of your facial skin. This will help them professionally assess the skin and determine the products that will be of the greatest benefit. Steam is then used to open the pores and remove impurities from the skin. A gentle cleanser is then used to clean the skin. This step is followed by a toner that is appropriate for your skin type. A facial mask is used to soothe and refresh the skin as well as to add moisture. At the end of the massage, a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type will be applied.
Our estheticians will customized your facial treatment based on your skin type. If you have dry skin, a moisturizing mask will be used to help add moisture to the skin. A rich moisturizer will also be used at the end of the treatment. Oil free products will be used for people with oily skin.
Our Facial massages are very beneficial for wrinkles. The facials increases the blood circulation to the muscles of the face, which helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There are over one hundred muscles in the face and massage helps to relax these muscles. This is particularly effective for wrinkles that result from muscle contractions, such as laugh lines and worry lines.
Our estheticians are very knowledgeable in massage techniques. Along with your face our estheticians gently care for your arms, neck and shoulders are massaged as well. This is great for stress relief.
Once you have had your facial, you will want to keep your skin in good condition at home. Use a gentle cleanser that is not drying in the morning and at night. Invest in good quality anti aging creams to minimize wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. It's important to choose creams that are good for your skin type and the condition of your skin.

This anti-aging treatment is designed to combat wrinkles, brighten up dull skin and leave you with a more youthful look and a great way to improve your complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Here’s a close look at some of the top benefits of anti-aging facials at our spa:
Exfoliates the Skin at a Deeper Level
Even though most facials include basic exfoliation with a scrub, the anti-aging facial goes one level deeper with the addition of a facial buffing tool, a Galvanic facial scrubbing device, or a microdermabrasion treatment. Exfoliation helps to slough away dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, more youthful skin cells underneath. This process also helps to increase circulation to the skin’s surface, which helps with cellular renewal.
Moisturizes Dehydrated Skin
Many people with aging skin have very dry skin, or notice flaky and rough patches appearing on the cheeks, along the jawline, and on the forehead. Some anti-aging facials include the application of hyaluronic acid and emollient-rich moisturizers which help to increase the moisture level of your skin. The facial may also include the use of a Galvanic device, which helps to regulate the moisture level of the skin’s surface, and also drives topical products deeper into the pores.
Improves the Texture and Tone of Your Skin
Anti-aging facials can improve the texture and tone of your skin by increasing circulation to the skin’s surface, and making your skin appear smoother. Gentle massage and the application of light pressure to various parts of the face can help to contour, shape and define your facial features, and also help to create a more sculpted appearance.
Slows Down the Aging Process
Are you noticing fine lines and wrinkles appearing around your eyes, nose and mouth? Anti-aging facials that include glycolic acid treatments, collagen-infused serums, and hyaluronic acid can restore the skin’s firmness and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Getting these facials regularly can help to keep your skin looking fresh, supple, smooth and young.
Reduces Appearance of Age Spots or Broken Capillaries
If your anti-aging facial includes light therapy treatments, you may be able to say goodbye to age spots and broken capillaries for good. Light therapy treatments can help to restore your skin at a deeper level, and will help to rejuvenate and strengthen your skin from inside out. You will need to undergo a series of these treatments to see results, but you can expect dramatic changes in your skin within a few weeks!
Keeps Skin Looking Youthful
You don’t have to wait for wrinkles to benefit from an anti-aging facial. These facials will keep your skin looking youthful and beautiful, and may ward off many of the signs of premature aging. Plan to get these facials at least once per month for optimal benefits.
Restful sleep is vital to restoring balance in your waking life. Our Deep Sleep mask works with magnetic energy, negative ions and far infrared technologies to calm your body as it quickly moves to the stage of rejuvenation. Mask cover is woven
from silky-soft, all natural thermostatic fabric, promoting a more youthful appearance. Experience deep, restful sleep. We recommend our guests take home their Deep Sleep Eye Mask to sustain restful nights.
"Celebrating Love" $30
Ceremonial Lantern Release* celebrating your love. Enjoy a moment in time, release your lantern over Lake Geneva and celebrate your love as you both watch the glowing lantern rise to the beautiful night sky.
Lantern Releases are done with zero wind conditions. If wind is present our guests take home their Wishing Lanterns (with a complimentary wishing mantra) to be launched at their convenience with ideal weather conditions.
Enjoy your Suite Jacuzzi and soak in a Himalyan Salt Bath!
Be sure to request your Himalayan Salts to be in your Suite at the time of booking or book online.
Our Fair Trade Himalayan Bath Salt Crystals contain 84 essential minerals, more than any other salt, such as magnesium, potassium, bromide, and calcium, they are readily absorbed into the skin. Naturally harvested from mineral-rich ocean waters that dried and crystallized 250 million years ago. If you have never experienced a soothing warm salt bath, let your first experience be in your Bella Vista Jacuzzi Suite.
Natural Himalayan salt minerals help the nervous system, relieve stress, can relieve water retention and restore a healthy calcium balance, which strengthens bones and nails. Our salt contains potassium, which you need for your blood after exercise, and which you need for moist, glowing healthy skin and all-over energy.
Enter your Suite and enjoy the beautiful sight of a Himalayan Salt Lamp. Please contact the front desk or The Heartland Spa to assure your Suite has a Himalayan Salt Lamp upon your arrival.
We encourage everyone to surround themselves with the cleanest air possible. The Himalayan Salts are the best kept secret to creating your own space of clean air and positivity. Every day we are surrounded by electrical devices that emit unhealthy ions. (i.e. computers, television, indoor lighting, ect.) These unhealthy ions absorb into our skin causing us to experience unexplained feelings of stress, anxiety and tension. The Himalayan Salt Lamp releases healthy ions into the electromagnetic field that combat the unhealthy ions. By removing the unhealthy ions emitted from the electrical devices, it allows us to create spaces of positivity, removing all environmental stressors. Medicinally Himalayan Salts release ions that decrease allergens in the air and alleviates symptoms of respiratory and sinus ailments. The healthy ions released from the Himalayan Salt Lamps are the same healthy ions that are released from the oceans or bodies of water. That is why when we are at the ocean we typically feel less symptoms of respiratory challenges and aches, instead feelings of positivity take over! Once you experience the benefits...you will not only appreciate the beautiful ambience the lamps create, but also the health and wellness benefits.
In-Suite “Love is in the Air” Aroma Therapy and Diffuser* to enhance your stay we encourage you to pre-order a soothing in-room massage for you or a couple’s massage. Taking your suite to premium level, we invite you to experience a beautiful Himalayan Salt Lamp for your suite along with our premium essential oils with diffuser. In hopes of encouraging you to continue your wellness lifestyle enhancements, we ask that the Himalayan Salt Lamps, essential oil and diffuser are tucked in your overnight bag to make the trip back to your home. Please visit this page to add wellness lifestyle enhancements to your suite. (See details on Diffuser and Oils below)
The Essential plant oil Diffuser is a small, user-friendly diffuser that delivers health-promoting benefits to your family and home. It has a relaxing mist and soft white ambient light, making it ideal for nighttime diffusion, and can cover up to 330 square feet. 1, 2, and 4 hour diffuser settings

Yoga: As we are on the shores of Lake Geneva, we have the perfect view of Lake Geneva...our candlelight classes will be held on our patio, on our Bella Vista Pier and also in our Heartland Fitness Studio complete with candles and Himalayan Salt Lamps. If you think of people in seemingly impossible and weirdly twisted poses when you think of "Yoga", then you may have an inkling of what yoga is, just an inkling that's it. Yoga is much more than those poses. Derived from the Sankrit word "yuj" which means "to unite or integrate"; yoga is a 5000 year old Indian body of knowledge. Yoga is all about harmonizing the body with the mind and breath through the means of various breathing techniques, yoga postures and meditation.
(Our Yoga Classess will be modified for the attendees from more advanced poses to soothing guided "rest your mind" meditations. Visit our Private Session web page for one on one classes that are available to our members and hotel guests.)

Barre and Beyond: Our barre-based classes use a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. We also incorporates light handheld weights to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.This class is ideal for men and women and we encourage our guests and members, if you have never tried it, please do! You will be hooked!

The vibrational music and the atmosphere is so unique that there is no need to have "experience" in dance or proper dance moves, a mind, body soul experience not to miss!
SPLISH SPLASH: This class is created for FUN with the throw back music and very effective for core strengthening, balance and toning without any pressure to your joints.
Greet the Day Walk: This is a 45 Minute guided walk that begins in front of Bella Vista with a stretch and daily intention. A great feature of this class is the comaraderie as the group briskly walks around beautiful Lake Geneva!

Lauren has been teaching since she was 16 years old. She knew immediately in that moment seeing/feeling the class laughing, letting go, and diving into their own body (colorfully) was a dream come true! The dream keeps on going. Her classes are an investment of self-discovery unleashing the inner giggle…to release any fear of what you hold within (un-locking it in process). What is inside you? Will it roar back at you? Or sing to you in absolute want of change? In class you have the opportunity to look deep into the eyes/soul of it on any level you choose and remember the childlike/play-full quality to take on and freely establish strength of mind/body! The body/mind is celebrated integrating your own positive flow through/follow through. You put in what you want from it. You have that choice. How exciting is it and can be and will be for you to have an adventure into your body, which can stretch/ground you into a place of mindfulness. The dance of yoga. The dance itself. The yoga of breath breathing into your own livelihood.
Your limbs, your taste, your imagination---feeling your senses in a dynamically delicious way! Lauren’s passion is endless! She embraces each of her student’s individuality to comprehend their unique style. Non-stop open communication. Student’s sensations of safeness unwind and the fire is lit-inside! The stage is set and the student owns their spotlight performing to their best ability. The audience of self-love applauding… the journey begins.
Lauren's 20 years of teaching dance and constant observation of humanity created a belief everyone has a dancer/yogi within. Lauren believes it is about letting go, celebrating the beauty of moment, and embracing the life core of the dance through body movements. Lauren is passionate about many types of dance such as hip-hop, modern, African and Latin. The dynamic force of integration explodes, full vibrant color from within. Dance with everything. Dance without fear. In moving truth. Her style and choreography isn't about perfect steps...it's about stepping outside your routine and uncovering the colors and amazing vibrations within. Let the spirit flow with the breath of life.

Is your group a fit for teambuilding?
Definition for teambuilding: Teambuilding is a process that develops cooperation and teamwork within a work unit. To constitute an effective team, its members must share a common goal, have respect for each other, and be motivated to use the strengths of each other to achieve their objectives. Current corporate philosophy stresses that each member of a team plays an intergral part in the success of the company.
We understand that these days, many people prefer on-site meetings as opposed to off-site meetings that pull them away from their families. We want to make sure that group attendees that stay at the Bella Vista, leave knowing that they had an effective meeting, but also the time with their colleagues was extra special and they have positive impactful take home memories from their stay at the Bella Vista, extraordinary.
One of our most simple and favorite options is our Lantern Release: This non time consuming experience that is very impactful. As we are steps away from Lake Geneva we encourage a Lantern Release into the night sky overlooking Lake Geneva. Encourage attendees to set goals, celebrate achievements or release anything holding them back in taking the next steps on their journey to success both personally and professionally.
$30 Per Lantern
$25 Per Lantern-6 or more lanterns
$20 Per Lantern-10 or more
