At the hotel spa, you will find picturesque landscapes, intriguing historical sites, and naturally heated waters whose therapeutic values wee well known to Indian tribes of long ago. Indian warriors came here to recover from their battles and rest up from their forays across both sides of the border.

The main hotel is within a stones throw of the Rio Grande. A swinging bridge connects Indian Hot Springs Ranch to the small, quaint Mexican Village of Ojo Caliente. When the first white explorers came to this valley of the Rio Grande in which Indian Hot Springs Ranch nestles in quiet splendor at over 3,000 feel elevation, they found where prehistoric people hand dug out stone troughs around the springs in which to enjoy the therapeutic waters. Later the Indians made use of the natural stone bathtubs for bathing in the waters, which they considered to be enchanted liquids capable of healing miracles.

These natural bathtubs have been improved with plumbing, as well as, construction of the bath and well houses. Since the improvements to the springs, many celebrities from the entertainment world, sports figures, countless professional athletes, and other well known dignitaries have enjoyed the benefits of the Indian Hot Springs Ranch Spa.

The property includes 10 sections that adjoin the river. Each section is approximately half a mile wide and two miles deep, giving it roughly five miles of river frontage. Because of the bends in the river, this amounts to a good deal more lineal feet of frontage.
