Renovations & Enhancements

We are excited to share the many enhancements and new developments of the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa facility. Our goal is to improve the Ojo experience while honoring its essence, charm and history; with the ongoing goal of stewardship for sustainability. 

Please check back for updates during the coming months.


Ojo has been undergoing improvements continually over the past 14 years on virtually every level. We believe these enhancements have contributed dramatically to improving the Ojo guest experience, while remaining true to the unique character and essence of this special place. We schedule these projects during our less busy times, and do our absolute best to coordinate them to minimize the impact on both our staff and our guests.

Our mission is to provide genuinely gracious and accommodating hospitality to all of our guests at all times. We consider ourselves stewards and ambassadors of this legendary oasis. We are dedicated to preserving, honoring and enriching all that is special about Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs while sharing it will all who seek it.


We're pleased to announce the opening of the new Ladies' Spa Changing Area. Located in the Historic Bathhouse, this new Ojo enhancement is available to all women who purchase a spa treatment. The new Ladies' Spa Changing Area includes 74 new lockers, 4 showers and features our Ojo Signature Hair and Body Care amenities. Spa lockers include a robe and large bath towel to use during your visit. Thank you to our loyal patrons for your patience while we continue to improve the Ojo guest experience.

NEW MUD AREA (September 2013)

We're thrilled to announce the opening of Ojo's new Mud Area in front of the Main Bathhouse near the Large Pool. Our avid Mud Pool enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy this indulgence year round, weather permitting. We are now heating the mud that is pumped into a stunning stone vessel for guests to slather all over themselves. We also created 3 new cleverly-designed outdoor showers whereby the water streams out of hand-crafted galvanized steel buckets. We moved the Mud Experience to this new location because this area will receive more sun exposure throughout the year. This will allow our special blend of clay (once applied to the skin) to dry better with natural radiant heat. 


Our ever-growing population of male guests will be pleased to know we've expanded the Men's Locker Room in the Main Bathhouse which includes a larger changing area and an additional more 48 new lockers for a total of 82 lockers. 34 of these lockers are outfitted with Ojo robes and large bath towels for our male guests who purchase a spa treatment to use during their visit. The Men's Locker Room also now features our Ojo Signature Hair and Body Care amenities.

CREATION OF A NEW LITHIA POOL (expected completion Winter 2014)

Since our historic Lithia Pump stopped functioning in 2011, we’ve received overwhelming feedback from our guests encouraging us to bring this sacred water back into use. To that end, we will be converting the existing Mud Pool into a Lithia Pool enhanced with patio ramadas, additional hammocks and expanded seating.

RV PARK IMPROVEMENTS - FIRST PHASE (expected completion Summer 2014)

Our RV and camping guests will be happy to hear that we are underway with adding a shower and toilet facility to the RV Park. We believe this new amenity will be a welcome addition to our RV Park.

Wine Bar & Lounge
Adjacent to the Artesian Restaurant located in the Historic Hotel is the new Wine Bar & Lounge. It provides a charming and relaxed environment serving a fine selection of local and imported wine and beer and enticing Bar Menu.

Spa Entrance & Gift Shop
The new entrance to our healing waters offers our guests an expansive front desk and lobby, women’s changing room, gift shop featuring SUNDÃRI and Zents products, and 4 new spa treatment rooms.

Lodging Enhancements
12 Cliffside and Pueblo Suites: Overlooking a beautiful plaza, are two new traditional, pueblo-style buildings housing 12 enchanting suites. Each suite is 500 sf with beautiful wax plaster finishes, a kiva fireplace, and viga ceilings. The 6 Cliffside Suites have their own private, outdoor, 2-person soaking tub. The 6 Pueblo Suites have a private patio overlooking an enchanting courtyard.

11 Plaza Suites: Replacing the circa 1930s South Cottages are now 11 Plaza Cottages that were completed in 2008. Adjacent to the new Pueblo Suites, these cottages overlook the beautiful plaza and are decorated with lovely New Mexican furnishings plus a kitchenette that includes a small refrigerator and microwave.

8 Restored North Cottages: In 2006, we finished the complete restoration of the North Cottages. Most notably, each has a spacious plaster and tile shower, as well as hardwood floors, and fun, eclectic furnishings and finishes. 

New Kiva Pool
Plaza, Pueblo and Cliffside Suite guests have exclusive access to a newly built Kiva Pool centered in the courtyard between these rooms. We offer extended soaking hours for the Kiva Pool from 6 am - midnight.

Private Outdoor Pools
We’ve created the perfect environment for those yearning to bathe under big blue skies by day, or on a stunning starlit night. Escape to one of our three secluded and private outdoor pools complete with kiva fireplaces and create your own Ojo experience. Reservations are recommended.

Spa Lounge and Four New Treatment Rooms
Located in the Historic Bathhouse is the new Spa Lounge where guests will relax in a quiet and comfortable setting before being greeted by a massage therapist for their treatment. This building has 4 new and spacious treatment rooms.

New Hiking & Mountain Biking Trails
We’ve recently mapped over 12 miles of single-track mountain biking trails on the mesa top with accompanying trail map. Additionally we’ve created a delightful 2 mile Bosque River Loop that includes a bridge connecting you to the Rio Ojo Caliente and over 1100 acres of lush river landscape. Beginning in Spring 2010, indulge your inner child with a beach cruiser bike ride around the loop.

Waters Shine with New Improvements
We’re proud to announce the completion of our new filtration system utilizing ozone and UV light to maintain the natural integrity of our healing waters without adding any chlorine or other chemicals. Guests can now enjoy new waterfall features, particularly in the Iron and Cliffside pools.

Geothermal Heating & Cooling
As part of our commitment to the environment we have converted all facilities to geothermal heating and cooling. This process is accomplished by harnessing the earth’s energy via our most precious resource: hot water.

Waste Water Treatment Plant
In an effort to recharge the local aquifer with high quality treated water we have created our own on-site wastewater treatment facility. We treat the water before re-injecting it into the aquifer which controls evaporation and groundwater contamination.
