Hot Springs

HEALING WATERS

Pure Bliss
Soak It In

Long considered sacred by the Apache and Mimbres tribes of Southern New Mexico, the natural, mineral-rich water of Riverbend Hot Springs has been relaxing and rejuvenating warriors and peace-seekers alike for centuries. Untouched and odor-free, the world-class mineral water is pumped from deep within the Earth directly to the pools. Now, you can experience these legendary crystal clear waters from a breathtaking riverside location.

common Pools
it’s all about options

The riverside common pools consist of 8 pools, each with a different temperature ranging between 95-108 degrees. They are situated around a shaded river deck and include a cold shower for cooling off, as well as our large shaded patio with chaise loungers, hammocks, papasans, evaporative coolers (in the Summer), gas firepit (in the Winter), and our 6 person barrel sauna! Our river pier offers the most amazing vistas and has become THE place to read, bird-watch, or even get married!

The common pools are accessible via a one hour Property Pass by reservation. Or, if you stay the night in one of our overnight rooms or RV, they are included. We do not reserve space in individual common pools and there is limited capacity.

Common Pool Details

Our hottest three pools are nicknamed The Hot Minnow Baths, because they have a unique history. Until 1990, Riverbend was a riverside bait shop that was built over 70 years ago by the Pierce family. Riverbend’s owners purchased the bait shop in 1988, made a colossal leap and converted their family run bait shop to a hot springs in early 1990. Though they have been reformatted and covered in stone, the three upper pools were once the original tanks that housed minnows, water dogs, craw dads, and other live bait. The surrounding bath house is the original bait shop, minus one wall. A sign above the pools pays homage to the bath house’s interesting story

There are 4 small Riverside Rock Pools (Luna, Zia, and the two Kiva Twins). They are milder in temperature (between 101-106) and are the perfect choices for a longer, detoxifying soak. They are literally a few feet from the river’s edge and are the premier spot for enjoying the view of Turtleback Mountain and the abundant wildlife, or, for enjoying a relaxing soak under the starry night sky. Our giant rock pool, Sierra (16′ x 25′), is our mildest pool (95-101) and the largest hot springs pool in Truth or Consequences. It is also the only hot springs pool in town with an ADA Accessible pool lift, plus it now features two hanging hammock chairs, The Clouds of Sierra, for blissful water floating.

Private Pools
Pure Zen

Our private pools are perfect for those that would like more peaceful privacy. They are clothing optional and are walled on three sides but open to the riverside mountain view. They are available for rental by the public and for overnight guests. Rent them via 50 minute sessions that start at the top of every hour between 9AM and the last session of the night starts at 9 PM. Click the “Book Now” links below to book online.
