Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa – Near Santa Fe, New Mexico
Located just 50 miles north of Santa Fe, New Mexico lies Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa.
Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs’ is 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.
Their sulfur-free (no rotten egg smell), geothermal mineral waters have flowed from a subterranean volcanic aquifer for thousands of years. Over 100,000 gallons per day come to the surface, revitalizing those who soak in the long-believed, healing waters.
These springs were found back in 1807, and in 1868 Antonio Joseph opened this historic health spa.
The Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa has recently undergone some fairly significant renovations, and has forever removed itself from being “a slightly rundown place with awesome mineral waters”.
In fact, we were kind of expecting not-so-great facilities, and were blown away when we entered the grounds. Furthermore, we were major leagued bummed that we weren’t spending a night or two here.
Besides being a great place to spend a few nights, Ojo Caliente is also a day spa. Remarkably you can spend the whole day enjoying these waters for only $16/person!
The spa also has a full range of spa treatments, historic steam baths built in 1868, a historic hotel built in 1916, as well as over thirty scrumptiously modern suites and cottages all designed to pamper your socks off.
After spending a delightful afternoon soaking in these springs, we both looked at each other and nearly simultaneously proclaimed, “we’ll be back!“.
