Since the 1860's, people have been coming to Calistoga for the mud baths. The town sits on a natural hot mineral spring with lots of volcanic ash available to make the mud. We tried Golden Haven, in spite of mixed reviews, because the location was convenient. The web site pictures are a bit misleading. The motel/spa was clean but don't... More

For anyone expecting either a unique spa treatment or a special experience with that someone special in your life: run, don't walk away. The facilities were simply gross; it felt mostly like a motel from the 1970s, run by toothless and tattooed people who can't spell mud, let alone ensure it is sanitary or used properly. The "mineral hot springs"... More

First off, if you are looking to finally check the whole "mud bath" experience off your bucket list, then this is the place to do it. The staff is professional, the facilities are in good shape, and the entire experience was a perfect beginning to my wife and I's recent trip to Wine Country. The price for the experience of...

After business meetings and long flights from the east coast, decided to try the Golden Haven spa and the mud bath and mineral tub experience. What a pleasant surprise! The mud was hot, but definitely therapeutic. I could see where some would be claustrophobic, but they just need to let the attendent know if they become uncomfortable. The experience of... More

Just a wonderful time. Our Attendant was Maria and she treated us to a terrific spa visit. We did mud bath with facial, shower, whirlpool and wrap. Delightful, relaxing experience. Unrushed. Very attentive. Just a perfect experience.

This is our 3rd visit to Golden Haven, they have actually done some upgrades since we were last here in 2008. We always do the couples mud baths, with herbal wrap, mini-facial and massage, which are heaven. Ask for Shannon, she is a wonderful masseuse. You will need a nap!

My wife and I opted for the full package here: Mud bath, massage, facial. We arrived early for a complimentary swim in their mineral water pool and a soak in their Jacuzzis. This was a great way to start. The massage and facial were very well done. The mud baths were not something we would do again. The mud rooms... More

Seems to be a small deal from the outside but the service was amazing and the mud baths beyond relaxing.

I have been to Golden Haven Spa before and always had a very nice time. This time, the husband joined me for the weekend and he had his first spa experience. I told him about the process, as I said, I have been here before, and he surprised himself by enjoying it more than he thought he would. The mud... More

We spent two days midweek (nice discount) in one of the jacuzzi rooms...hot mineral baths on demand! Beautiful room, airy and light, although it did get humid after so much soaking in the mineral jacuzzi. Just open the door for a few minutes to clear it out, no problem. The mud baths were fabulous...SO relaxing. AND they had old fashioned... More
