The Repose Pools
Pond-side, spring-fed thermal pools.
Relax your body, calm your mind and soothe your spirit as you soak in our gently heated natural artesian spring-fed pools.
Our spring-fed thermal pools are set at the edge of our tranquil pond and under towering cottonwoods, making them perfectly situated for blissful soaking under the vast blue New Mexican sky by day or the stunningly bright stars by night.
The Repose Pools are available exclusively to our overnight guests.
Please shower prior to soaking. Bathing suits are required in the Repose Pools. We suggest you also bring flip-flops, sunglasses and a hat.

How often are the pools cleaned and how?
We use a state-of-the-art purification system to ensure the naturally pure artesian spring water retains its purity. Chlorine isn’t used in any soaking experience. Continuous filtration with a 12 micron filter, ozone and UV light removes all biological materials and every pool gets a deep cleaning every week.

At this time, we offer select weekly activities to overnight guests only which include visiting with the Silkie chickens and puppies. We plan to open activities to day guests in the future.

Soaking is by reservation only at this time for 50-minute sessions. You may reserve two sessions per day.
Is re-entry permitted?
Yes. Please feel welcome to enjoy spa services and visit the Blue Heron Restaurant when you come to soak.
Are the pools open in rain or snow?
Yes, usually. But, in the event of inclement weather, we may have to close down the pools. Rain checks are available for those who arrived within an hour of closing for weather.
Can I bring food or alcohol to the pool?
No. But the Blue Heron is just steps away and offers a wide range of food and beverages. There are fresh cool spring water stations available poolside.
Are the Repose Pools open year round?
