The Water

As loyal stewards of this sacred land in Santa Fe, Ojo Santa Fe is committed to preserving the venerable legacy we’ve inherited. The natural beauty of this special place can be traced back to one source: the legendary waters found beneath the surface.

Our location in La Cienega Valley is a lush oasis within Santa Fe’s high-desert landscape. In fact, ciénega is a Spanish word meaning “desert marsh,’” in which slow-moving water flows through dense vegetation – making it an ideal home for a diverse range of plants and wildlife. This rare, natural wetland has numerous artesian springs that drain into two converging creeks that meet the Santa Fe River at the south end of the valley.

The water from these artesian springs is refreshingly cold and pure; it is free from contaminants because it has been protected through many layers of rock on its way to the surface. The spring water fills our soaking pools and tubs for the pleasure of our guests, and feeds the resort’s two wells and our tranquil ponds. They provide a continuing source of water and nutrients for our vibrant gardens.

We invite you to drink this spring-fed well water fresh from the tap. Unlike our sister property Ojo Caliente Mineral Hot Springs, our life giving waters nourish from within.
