Just north of Santa Fe is Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs’ secluded sanctuary. Deemed sacred by Native Americans of Northern New Mexico, our legendary waters have been soothing body, mind and spirit naturally for centuries. Ojo is the only hot springs in the world with 4 unique, sulfer-free mineral waters. The resort is historic, yet modern and fresh with eclectic charm in a relaxed and tranquil environment. The full-service spa offers a wide array of restorative treatments including nurturing massage and hydrating face and body treatments. Don’t miss a soak in a private outdoor pool by fire at night or in the seasonal, detoxifying mud pool. We offer an unpretentious and uncomplicated atmosphere with a variety of lodging accommodations including enchanting suites, charming cottages, the historic hotel and private homes. All lodging includes access to all mineral pools every day of your visit. The Artesian Restaurant provides a casual dining experience and charming atmosphere. Our chef blends local flavors with global cuisine. Creative dishes include Green Chile Crusted Salmon, homemade pasta, and Ribeye. Lighter fare is available in the Wine Bar & Lounge. Yoga classes are offered 7 days a week. Ojo is nestled in a valley on 1,100 acres and is adjacent to thousands of acres of hiking and mountain biking trails. We suggest that you make reservations for spa treatments, private outdoor pools and dinner before you arrive.

very relaxing and nice. Highly recommended!

Great place for friends or couples. Maybe not the place for kids. Everything you need is right on site so no need to go anywhere once you get there.

Creator established the Native American mineral springs that are the star of this attraction.There are multiple pools for bathing and it is soothing and tranquil to partake of these natural wonders. However, management seemed to be overwhelmed on the day we went. First there was an issue with an incorrect charge on my credit card. Then there seemed to be... More

Ojo Caliente has a special place in my heart. Everything about it is done with care and detail. If you want to feel relaxed and recharged go to the pools, bake yourself in the mud and get a massage. We have stayed in all of the different rooms and they are all beautiful and simple. Get away from the commercial... More

I was on a business trip in Santa Fe. My sister had visited and encouraged me to make the the one-hour drive and try it. It's about $20 plus I paid the extra $15 for a robe, locker, lock and towels. I tried several of the available pools/hot tubs. Very relaxing.

This was one of many visits to Ojo. The only downside was the group of "girlfriends" who would not shut up. I get that it's a fun place to go with a group, but it's clearly marked--and they remind you at check-in--that only whispering is allowed. These gals were entitled and loud. Please be ready to be quiet and respect... More

I didn't stay overnight in the adjoining hotel, so I cannot speak to that. My experience was in the restaurant and pools. I went for an afternoon and evening with my sisters. We had lunch in the restaurant soaked in the pools, each had a personal massage, tried the mud bath, and soaked in the pools some more. The admission... More

We're a retired couple who have never been to an American spa before although one of us got to experience hot springs in Japan and the other one tried a hot springs in Israel a couple decades ago. This experience was so much more asthetically delightful, restful, and worth the price. Too bad we were in New Mexico on vacation... More

We would highly recommend Ojo Caliente Hot Springs. Although quite expensive, but really great. 7 different pools, 2 saunas and of course also spa, massage etc. It rained a few times during the day, but the people were still very relaxed and it was a great atmosphere. The only downside are the changing rooms, which are much too small and... More

I took my 15y\o for a spa day and she loved it, all the pools were great could do with out some couples getting to cozy though. Restuarant was great and the staff was helpful being our first time.
