Mark Our bad! While the new Grand Bath is being tweaked to be even more spectacular (opening 9/23/15), we placed temporary guidance signs around the property, but neglected to post a bathing suit sign at the temporary public tub. I'm sorry you were inconvenienced.

Allen Thanks for your nice words. We try hard to create a Japanese Adobe experience! The water used in the tubs comes from a 900 foot deep well and is highly mineralized. Yes, we do heat it, but half of the hot springs resorts in...More

Great upscale Japanese dinning, not your typical Japanese food. Small plates you share around. Don't expect any regular soft drinks.. More healthy choices . You can take a spa treatment and then eat in a bathrobe and only 15 min from downtown.

We have 125 therapists, many with 20+ years experience. The deepest work we do is our signature Japanese shiatsu. Please call 505-982-9304 for advice on the best person for your needs
Is there a way to enter the place and/or Spa without climbing those steps. Maybe parking on the higher level?

Of course. You can park on the upper level or use any of the call boxes in the lower lots to request a shuttle.
