Aspira Spa aims to synthesize and represent the ancient healing principles and philosophies of non-Western cultures. The 20,000-square-foot facility features a color scheme that mirrors the major elements of the surrounding landscape, from blue-green (signifying the lake) to copper (signifying the red clay underneath the spa). Prominent in the spa design are such substances as mahogany and walnut wood and stones indigenous to the region. In addition to 22 wet and dry treatment rooms, the facility encompasses a spa studio for movement and fitness classes, a relaxation lounge with a year-round outdoor whirlpool, a cafe serving spa cuisine, and a serene meditation sanctuary. Signature Spa Suite Experiences are administered in private treatment suites, each of which has a private fireplace and whirlpool. Experiences range in duration from two hours to 210 minutes and can involve up to four spa clients at once. Inspired by the Native Americans who once gathered at Elkhart Lake, Sacred Waters is an experience that incorporates marine-based elements and therapeutic baths for healing and re-centering. The alternative-therapy focus of the spa is not confined to the aforementioned suite experiences, however. The toning and hydrating Yin Yang Osmosis Facial can be tailored to either sex according to Asian-inspired concepts of yin and yang. The 90-minute Aspira Chroma Facial integrates chromatherapy, lymphatic drainage, and pressure point massage into a results-oriented treatment that is offered as an individual service or as part of a series. The Osthoff Resort's fitness center offers round-the-clock access to a full complement of aerobic and weight-training equipment. The resort has an indoor swimming pool and two outdoor pools, one of which is kidney-shaped, the other of which can be used for lap or recreational swimming.
