Well, we did and I am! What a wonderful place, very friendly staff and owners, very well kept grounds and rooms. This is not a 5 star resort, but it is not trying to be, LWS has 5 star service. We were met at the front door by Jeff the owner and soon met Julie his wife and Susan. I had talked to Susan on the phone before about questions and had talked to Kat when I originally did the reservations. All were helpful and well versed about the goings on. It was nice seeing them around the spa and talking to them while they were carrying out their daily routines.

I can't believe how friendly all the guest were and don't know if we were just lucky or if it was because of the C/O, but we talked and listened to each of their stories and travels. There is a meet and greet in the hot tub in the afternoon and that is well worth the time. With so few rooms, it is a great time to visit one on one, it is not required, but IMHO, is well worth it.

For future guest, my recommendation would be to bring ice in an ice chest. There is a small freezer in the refrigerator in the room, but doesn't make ice very fast. Ice is not provided by LWS and I am sure that with the soothing mineral water, ice machines would require constant maintenance.

Thanks to everyone, owners, staff and guests, at LWS for such a pleasant, rewarding weekend, and we will be back several times in 2018.

Our second time here. We love the pool and the quiet atmosphere. Tranquility under the sun in a sparkling pool! The owners are very nice and they made sure we felt welcome and comfortable. We used the great bar b que grill at night to cook some steaks poolside. We can't wait to go back to Living Waters.

This was my wife and I first visit to this resort spa. This was also our first experience at a clothing optional resort. We are glad we made both choices. We can't wait until we can return to this resort. We were made so welcome and comfortable by the staff we couldn't be more pleased with this visit. The resort is small and very cozy which makes it the perfect place to feel comfortable. We came in on a day pass this time and will plan to stay the night or longer the next time we visit. We had the best massages in a room next to the pool. The pool and spa mineral waters were amazing. There are no restaurants at the resort, but there are vending machines available with snacks. You are welcome to bring your own food in with you. If you rent rooms some have complete kitchens. Prices are fair for what ever you decide to do visit or stay.Visit the website for more details.

This was third stay at the desert oasis Jeff and Judy have lovingly created. Soaking in the mineral water, treating ourselves to a couples' massage, enjoying the company of Jeff, Judy and the other guests all created a perfect getaway.
The 'Hot Summer Nights' workshop we attended was a wonderful weekend of intimacy and reconnection as a couple in a sharing and supportive environment. Jeff and Judy create a comfortable setting, geared to committed couples of all ages and backgrounds. Thank you for the experience!

Room Tip: All rooms nicely furnished and comfortable. Mountain views from rooms 2, 3 and 4. Kitchen rooms av...

I had the pleasure of staying overnight at pool side in one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! The mineral water is refreshing and spiritually awakening. The owners Jeff & Judy and staff, made me feel like part of the family, especially this being my first time in a clothes option co-gender spa, in the US. I felt comfortable as I chatted with couples and people like myself who were looking for a refreshing alternative to traditional spas. This space definitely sits on some sacred vortex where healing begins within.
Check out the native history environment. "Living Waters," the name hints to what is offered here.
I had the privilege of having a "Signature" massage by Jeff, that left me feeling completely relaxed, and free to delight in nothingness and everything! Divine Touch!
Highly recommended for a quiet desert oasis. I will be returning Thanks Judy for the plant!

Another great stay at LWS. Wonderful thermal waters with 24 hour soaking. The vintage sauna is a great amenity. This small, intimate inn allows you your choice of solitude or interaction with the other guests. Jeff and Judy, the owners, welcome you as if you were a guest in their home. The rooms are very comfortable but you will spend your time in and around the soaking pools, one of which is shaded from the sun. If you enjoy soaking and sunning in the nude, this place is one of the best.

We visited on a day pass only, didn't stay at the hotel. While the day we visited was unfortunately quite windy and a bit chilly (not what you want at a CO place), we found Living Waters to be a very nice boutique resort. The owners are hands-on. Other guests we talked to were friendly, but it was a very quiet day due to weather. The natural mineral water is certainly a highlight. We would like to return on a good hot day!
