Fodor's Expert Review Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa

50 Los Baños Dr., Ojo Caliente, New Mexico, 87549, USA Fodor's Choice

Set in a remote village in the vicinity of the red rocks and rugged mountains of Abiquiú, this fabled hot springs resort fits the tastes and budget of all sorts of travelers, from spiritually minded adventurers on a modest budget to romance-seekers wanting an upscale yet secluded spa getaway (it's a favorite of celebs filming movies in New Mexico). Accommodations run the gamut from the charmingly spartan and unfussy 1916 Mission Revival–style hotel (no TVs, simple furnishings) to the elegant, swanky suites—some with fireplaces and soaking tubs. The common spaces are impressive and include a beautiful lobby, spa shop, and lithia springs and mud pools at the bathhouse and spa, where all lodgers have complimentary access to the mineral pools and milagros (miracle) wraps. There is also a hip wine bar and lounge next to the Artesian Restaurant ($$), which serves delicious world-beat fare in a charming dining room. Don't miss a chance to explore the resort's many trails that wind through acres of gorgeous scenery.
