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 came for the hot springs (didn't stay or eat there) and it was just lovely. They have multiple hot pools to soak in instead of one giant swimming pool. The atmosphere is quiet, relaxed & peaceful.

First off. This is a mineral springs and spa, not just a spa. If you want the spa package, it's going to cost you. Anywhere, not just here. Beyond that, this is an awesome places to waste a day. Bring a book and some snack, and soak in some pools. Or lay in a hammock. Or steam it up in... More

Very nice drive from Santa Fe. We arrived about 9 AM and had breakfast followed by use of the private mineral pool and the the most heavenly massage ever . The only thing I would suggest is bring some kind of flip flops as they do not provide ant foot covering and you do have to walk around on cold... More

We have been to Ojo several times and always enjoy our time there. Relaxing way to spend a day. My husband had an excellent massage this time, and I enjoyed a private tub.

I like the springs, wish the rooms were a little more furnished, lacked a closet or drawers. We used the second bed for our clothes.

Having never been to this spa before, I was a bit unsure of what to expect. The front desk staff was very informative and helpful. There is good signage to the locker rooms, various pools and bath houses. I experienced one of the spa packages which was nice, but nothing spectacular. The price for visiting the spa for the day...

We had a wonderful time at Ojo Caliente! There are at least 6 different pools to sit in, each with a different mineral. They were hot, but not uncomfortably so. There was a wide range of people, but everyone was respectful of the space of others and pretty much kept to themselves. We both had massages, which were very good... More
