We looked into a few spas in the area of this one, and after considerable research we chose this one because of amenities. I spoke with Jeff and knew we had made a great choice. We arrived the first morning of our couples weekend and were welcomed warmly,given a tour and settled in. The hospitality was the best we have... More

After a week long trip exploring California, we arrived for a two day stay at the Living Waters Spa and instantly felt welcomed by owners Jeff and Judy. The peace and tranquility of " Kismet Lodge" enveloped us from the lovely music, the breathtaking views, the comfortable and soothing room and the wonderful hospitality. The mineral pools are just amazing!... More

The last months of winter are very difficult for those of us who live in the cold windy mountains of New Mexico. We discovered several years ago that if we can get away for a week or two during February-early April, we can sanely make it until the first days of warm weather (which often don't come until late May)....

This was my first stay at LWS, and it was wonderful! Jeff and Judy were both charming and friendly, as was the rest of the staff. Also met other friendly guests. My massages with Lilly were heavenly. Thinking about it? Do it!

I discovered Living Waters 6 years ago while looking for a Clothing Optional spa in the Desert. There are a number of Clothing Optional places to choose from but none compare to Living Waters. The first time I called to schedule a day use, the owner, Jeff, explained the European Spa experience then explained what their guests would experience. I... More

This was my 5th or 6th time visiting Living Waters Spa. I love getting rid of my tan lines, and as a single woman I always feel safe visiting by myself. Jeff and Judy are so welcoming, the mineral water is divine, the rooms are so comfortable and there are other guests from all over the world to meet and... More

Being fairly new to clothing optional vacations, my husband investigated LWS as an overnight treat during our drive across the country. We were pleasantly surprised at how much better LWS was than we had expected! We stayed over one night-pool side w/o kitchen. We enjoyed our stay so incredibly much that we booked a two night stay, poolside with a... More

I have been to LWS (Living Waters Spa) three times in total. Jeff and Judy (the owners) really care. They live there, run the hotel, and go out of there way to ensure your comfort and privacy. This is a small boutique spa/hotel. The mineral waters are refreshing and warming. Clothing is optional and I take advantage of the sun... More

We have been to Living Waters Spa four times. Each return visit we have been welcomed as part of the family. This is our favorite getaway spot. For us, it is an opportunity to relax, soak in one of the pools, bliss out on a massage table, and leave the chaos of work behind for a couple of days. We... More
