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. « less

This place was extremely peaceful & great! I can't say much about the staff because they seem like in a hurry for any question you ask.... The mineral pools was great also the restroom area, we walked in so stressful and we got out so relaxing and feeling so in peace!!! I will recommended to anyone!

My girlfriends and I went to Ojo as a day trip from Santa Fe. It's about an hour away and they recommend that you arrive an hour early to soak in the pools before your treatment. We spent time in the iron and soda pools and then headed in for our treatments. One of my friends had the Rejuvenator treatment... More

Huge thanks to you and your girlfriends for joining us for some summer R&R! While I'm glad to hear that it sounds like most of you were very pleased with the experience, I want to clear some things up about the Youthful Glow Face Therapy: It's unlike a traditional facial in that it's gentle. We use special rejuvenating products to... More

Was on vacation in the area and went to the spa on Monday and Thursday. Monday was a bit more crowded than Thursday, though the pools still had plenty of space. Cost is $18 per person for all public pools and includes a towel. Showers and lockers are free and locks are for sale or you can bring your own.... More

We were checked in just yesterday, July 12 and checked out this afternoon, here's me, my family and our friends' experience: - 30 min late check in because of "maintenance issue."

the spa is amazing! It is not only an indoor spa with excellent treatments (facials, massages) but outdoor experiences in all the mineral pools in a very tranquil and beautiful setting. Each pool is unique (love the arsenic pools) and leaves you feeling relaxed like no other spa I've been to. The blue skies, quiet, and waters are very cool.... More

Almost my favorite place in NM wonderful hot springs and a mud bath and arsenic pool. Massages extra. Fantastic restaurant and gift shop on premises surrounded by majestic mountain setting. Off the beaten path but with a good mountain map you can proceed to Taos in 27 miles There is a whispering policy so be prepared to relax!

As part of a birthday celebration in Sante Fe, we spent a day in May at Ojo. The scenery is beautiful, and the baths are lovely. Massage was fine, but room in men's area where it was was next to pools where people were quite loud. I have been there before and it was much quieter. There were many loud... More

This very old attraction looked a little dated at first. Then we got into the first of several hot mineral pools and my perspective changed. No loud talk. No boisterous horse play, just relaxation. If you want a full spa treatment or private mineral pool it is available. Mud pools are also available. This was just a great rustic place... More

The hot pools were nice but they sure want a lot of money to soak. WEAR shoes as the concrete surface is either slick (in the shower, locker area) or VERY rough (near hot pools). The only pool that I enjoyed was "iron" pool which was labeled as 104 degrees but didn't feel that hot. The smell from the minerals... More
