Overview

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.

We spent nearly 24 full hours soaking here. There were several awesome pools- the mud one and Lithia were faves. They don’t enforce the whisper rule and some people bring misbehaving children, although most children were pretty good except for 2. This is the type...More

I'm glad to see you got your answer. If you enjoy visiting wineries, Black Mesa Winery is definitely worth a stop enroute to Ojo Caliente especially if you'll arrive at Ojo prior to 3:00.

As mentioned above, the mud pool closes when the sun sets, because the mud won't dry! Personally, I couldn't stand the hot pools during the heat of the day. But property is a lovely place to lounge.
