Information Board 1

As it is named, the great hotel and walk-in pools are like a synonymous for Pagosa Springs.

Few people notice that there is a hideaway, named Healing Waters Resort & Spa right across the street.


The inn opened in the 1950s.

Its reasonable price is attractive; Healing Waters costs roughly only one thirds of The Springs.


I always choose Mini Suite for lodging.


The guest room is the second cheapest one, with a kitchenette.

Guest Room 2

My budget travel has to have a microwave and refrigerator.

Guest Room 1

I saw several roasters in the backyaRoad

Both overnight guests and walk-in guests have to go through the office for the use of pools.

The same rule is applied to the hot tub behind the building.

The hot tub is at the higher position.

The water temp was 106 degrees F.

Due to the small size, it was utilized as if it were for the private use.

This is because clothing is optional inside, although the gender is separated.

Opening the door of men's bath, I was astonished by the color of turquoise water.

The mural was also impressive.

Men's Bathroom

The depth was up to the shoulder.


It was extremely hot; 111 degrees F in most places and 115 degrees F at water outlet.


A guest was claiming that the indoor pool was too hot, but the staff looked like nothing happened.

Very nice attitude for respecting the natural resources.
Are you sure?

Something was roaring like breathing in the entire room.

Steam Bath

It was from the natural steam bath.

I really enjoyed the unique volcanic smell.

Women's Bathroom

Lastly let's check the women's bath.

It was bilaterally symmetric.

I got totally fascinated by the family-owned hideaway with the hottest water.
