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 offer a new Ladies' Locker Room for spa guests. Located in the Historic Bathhouse, this new amenity is available to all women who purchase a spa treatment. The new Ladies' Locker Room 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 POOL (September 2013)

We're thrilled to announce the opening of Ojo's new Mud Pool 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.

UPGRADES TO LODGING ROOMS (Winter 2014 - Spring 2015)

We’re happy to announce that all lodging rooms have been upgraded with new superbly soft and sumptuous microfiber sheets and duvet covers. Many rooms also now feature iconic Pendleton pillow shams and throws on the beds, and we’ve introduced beautifully-designed headboards in the Cliffside and Pueblo Suites. These added amenities are sure to enhance the tranquil relaxation for all of our lodging guests to enjoy.

OJO FARM (Spring 2014)

Our idea of developing a farm-to-table program sprouted from our garden manager’s success growing herbs and vegetables (especially greens) around the property. In the Spring of 2014 the Ojo Farm was born. Now, our Executive Chef Paul Novak incorporates seasonally available herbs, fruits, and vegetables all grown using organic and sustainable practices from Ojo’s 2-acre on-site farm. The Ojo Farm is meaningful addition to our overall focus on mindful health and wellness practices.

RV PARK IMPROVEMENTS (First phase May 2015)

Our RV and camping guests will be delighted to know that we have added a shower and toilet facility to the RV Park. We believe this new amenity will be a welcome addition for our RV and tent camping guests.



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 old Mud Pool into a Lithia Pool with an adjacent Cold Plunge. This area will be enhanced with patio ramadas, additional hammocks and expanded seating which we believe will be a welcome addition for our hot spring loyalists.


We have plans for an extensive remodel and expansion of our Main Bathhouse that will include new designated Men’s and Women’s Spa Facilities with a cozy waiting area, and other attractive amenities. Additionally, there will be a new steam room and sauna accessible from the Cliffiside area available for all guests.

These enhancements will allow us to continue to provide the unique healing experience that Ojo is known for, while improving our ability to better meet the expectations of the modern spa-goer.

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.
