Our Return Trip to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa in New Mexico
We were expecting not-so-great facilities, but wanted to experience one of the oldest natural health resorts in the country, and the only hot springs in the world with a remarkable combination of four different types of mineral waters.
After our visit, and getting a tour of their cliff-side suites with private outdoor soaking tubs filled with their legendary waters, we vowed to go back.
Generally speaking, we won’t report a resort to you that hasn’t earned at least a AAA Four-Diamond rating. However, we have made exceptions to this rule, and we think the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa is unique enough to offer a luxury baby boomer traveler a wonderful one-of-a-kind experience.
Plus, the folks over at SpaFinder have fairly recently named Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa as the “Best Mineral Springs Spa in the United States”.
After dinner, making the highlight of our whole experience, we enjoyed one of the resort’s private outdoor pools where you can bathe “au naturale” if you are so inclined. As we were traveling with friends, we passed on the whole nudity thing, but what an experience to sit in this private tub and witness the lighted sandstone cliffs, twinkling stars above, and a roaring fire in the kiva. Unbelievable!
We will always remember our experience at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa and can confidently recommend it to you!
Besides, where else can you sit in a 102º arsenic hot spring? It was absolutely amazing to the skin.
Disclosure: our wonderful experience was provided by the kind folks at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa. Thanks!
