Owner description: 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've been going to these mineral springs since the 80's and have seen lot of changes and improvements over this time. The place has grown in popularity, but I'm afraid it has lost its charm for us. We recently went for a daytrip on a weekday and had planned on soaking for several hours, but couldn't handle the noisy clientele.... More

A first of this kind of experience for me. I'm not a communal type. More on the modest side. I was nervous about this adventure. In the end it was absolutely great. The staff answered my many questions without judgement. I figured I'd be there a couple hours. NOT. Could have... but instead took my time spending most of the... More

I cannot say enough about this place. The spa was booked full for a massage on the day I went but my girlfriends and I were able to spend 4+ hours in the mud and the natural spring waters. Besides the health benefits of the waters the ambience and surroundings cannot be beat. Value for money was incredible. Just go.

I've been going to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs and Spa for 35 years now and make it an annual event. I meet friends from out of town and catch up with a glass of wine on the back porch of #25 and 26 in the North Cottages. The cottages have a kitchenette so we bring lots of our own food... More

I have always loved coming here and I enjoy the restaurant as well. I recently raised a concern via e-mail to the spa about being charged full price for two massages booked and cancelled within an hour on a recent day trip. A manager failed to address the concern with me personally and I e-mailed twice to the Spa and... More

Definitely the best two days we ever spent together. The ambience of warmth, tranquility, calmness and friendliness is everywhere! The different pools (Iron, Soda, Arsenic) are all available at any time and provide different results for your body. There are Private pools to rent but, the best is your own pool in your Cliffside Suites room. Totally Private. I always... More

We greatly enjoyed about three hours at this mineral hot springs an hour from Santa Fe. We have been coming to Ojo for some years, and it is getting more developed and more expensive, but is still a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating spot. The newly-restored and moved mud bath was a real treat this time. For the newbie, there are... More

This laid-back spa is a wonderful place to spend the day, even if you're not staying overnight. Excellent massage, warm mineral springs, good food, no hassles at all. If you're in the Santa Fe area, you won't regret a day here. Just don't expect opulence. It's comfy, not cushy.

We have visited OJO many times over the years and have watched as it expanded with additional pools, lodging, moving the mud pool, adding services etc. Overall it is a wonderfully relaxing hot springs experience. Midweek is better than weekend, costs increasing and serenity decreasing with the crowds. Not to be missed is the steam room, best I have ever... More
