Russell Simmons, Kim Kardashian, & Bethany Frankel at Green Valley Spa treatments at the vitaminwater house at Sundance
The vitaminwater house was the place to get fit, get pampered, get connected and get hydrated at the 2009 sundance film festival. The mega-mansion hosted screenings, yoga sessions with russell simmons, workouts with 50 cent, celebrity dinners, an exclusive midnight performance by 50 cent and g-unit with surprise appearances by Jim Carrey, Robin Thicke, dj AM and Chris Rock and star-studded after parties throughout the weekend.

With continuous fires burning, beats spinning, food passed, drinks flowing, celebs chilling and good conversation (unlike the cluster*&% out on main street), the vitaminwater house was the ultimate destination at sundance this year.
Here are the celebrity guests who enjoyed color light therapy treatments at Green Valley’s revive spa at the vitaminwater house.
Russell Simmons — After Russell Simmons led a yoga class at the vitaminwater house with his New York yoga guru, he enjoyed a Green Valley Spa rubdown and said the therapist was “The Shit!” He loved the natural products so much that he came back and grabbed an armful of Green Valley’s Dinosaur Sea Salts that are wild-crafted from pure, fossilized minerals in the red rock canyon country of St. George, Utah (known as one of the country’s top locations for dinosaur fossils).
Kim Kardashian — Kim toured the Green Valley Spa room after watching the football game with 50 Cent on Sunday. She oohed and awed over the lavish orange touches in the “Essential” Green Valley Suite — bouquets of flowers, a tub surrounded by orange slices and orange hydrangeas and beeswax candles scented with orange essence and a tub filled with Orange Fairy Dust from the spa. She loved her goodie bag filled with Green Valley’s Good Medicine skincare products that are created at the spa using desert plants and flowers.

Cuba Gooding Jr. — Got a rubdown from spa therapist Maryann, who is an amazing energy worker. Later when Cuba was walking by the therapist at the packed 50 Cent concert at the vitaminwater house, he did a double take and ran back to give Maryann a bear hug to thank her for the great massage.
Kyra Sedgwick — She said the idea of a hand reflexology treatment while waiting to be interviewed in the vitaminwater house media room was a great use of time. She loved visiting Green Valley Spa’s private “Essential” suite.
Tom Arnold — Came into Green Valley Spa after the workout class with 50 Cent’s trainer. He loved his treatment.
Bethany Frankel — She LOVED her massage and asked if she could come back for another before she left Sundance.
Kara Santana (CSI Miami) — Kara loved her Green Valley therapist so much said she would hook him up in L.A. to be a “set masseuse” because she’d never experienced anyone as good.
