While staying at the spa we ate here for every meal. The food was delicious and the staff courteous. Yummy but pricey. I believe all organic too.

Service is excellent and wait times for food are reasonable. The wine list features many New Mexico vineyards at a great price. The best part of dining here is that you... More

Decided, on a whim, to try to snag a table here after an afternoon soak. We were pleasantly surprised that they had many available tables and other patrons were similarly dressed down after a day in the tubs. The waitstaff were efficient and the waiter was professional and knowledgeable. We started with a large appetizer which could have fed four...abundant... More

We are long-time visitors to Ojo Caliente, and for the first time were disappointed in the food. A case in point: this used to be one of the few remaining places where you... More

Deemed sacred by Native Americans of Northern New Mexico, our legendary waters have been soothing body, mind and spirit naturally for centuries. 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.
We suggest that you make reservations for spa treatments, private outdoor pools and dinner before you arrive.

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.
