They only allow hotel guests and those having treatments to use their olympic pool heated by the hot springs. All the ammenities of the 21st century in a 1900's facility. Great that they keep on file the therapists you have had and the type of massage you like. On a nice day, the pool with the easy to get on floating lounge chairs is luxury. The Buddah Pond for before and after the massage is unique and worth speinding the day. Bring your own picnic and you are set for the day. The staff is professional and nice. A great experience with very few kids in the pool. Great for an adult getaway.

Pros: Truly a turn of the century Calsitoga Hot Springs

Cons: pricy

This place is for GAMERS and I do mean that they will play with your emotions /your money/ and your time.
As far as value HYPE is a good word, and if you need more insight
(READ 08/15/2007 Posted by chicagoamanda)
As far as your mud, maybe you should walk around the back of the spa where they dump it after it used, see what you really been sitting in.

Pros: Good Swimming Pool -but not free must purchase service

Cons: Too Many

This spa has the best mud bath in Calistoga.
I have tried others, but this one takes the cake. For one thing they use the volcanic ash and water to make a thick mud using the geyeser mineral water. They do not add peat moss as do the others. The mud sticks to you much better this way. The mud is hot but not scortching.
Front staff are busy, but pleasant.
Wait times are about 20 min when you walk in.
ONce you get in you get your mud bath treatment and you are attended promptly. The staff makes sure you are comfortable and safe. The steam room was nice and hot with some Eucolyptus scent inside. The big pool in the front is awesome!. Natural mineral water that is warm( T gauge said 102F) and in the cold weather it was welcoming. The blanket wrap at the end of the treatment was nirvana!
This is the place!!
Cheers

Pros: BEST MUD MIXTURE IN CALISTOGA

Cons: WAIT TIME IS MORE THAN EXPECTED

My husband and I stayed at Indian Springs last week. We were in town for my sister's wedding, and the majority of her wedding guests stayed there. The rooms themselves are ok (nothing special and certainly not worth the price); however, it gets really hot in August and the air conditioners do not work well. Also, there are no phones in the rooms, which we found irritating. (I know they were trying to go for a tranquil spa-like experience, but it was just silly not to have phones...especially considering our room was right off a major road and we heard motorcycles going by all night, making the experience was anything but peaceful!). But our biggest issue with Indian Springs was the service. My husband had to cancel his massage at the last minute due to a serious illness and they absolutely refused to refund even part of the money. I understand 24 hour cancellation policies, but I would think they would make an exception in cases of emergency (especially considering we were part of a giant wedding party, which they were making a ton of money from). To add insult to injury, when I spoke with the manager and very patiently and politely explained the reason for the last minute cancellation, I was met with complete rudeness. She even insinuated we were lying! Do not waste your money. This place is an absolute farce!

My husband and I visited Indian Springs on our honeymoon to take in the mud baths. Well, while we were under whelmed by the mud experience (I thought it would just feel like MORE) , the overall experience there was wonderful. We had the mud bath process, which is really more like a 5 step process including a hot springs bath, sauna, cool lay down afterward (since you feel like your bones are about to melt this is key). We also had massages and then relaxed in the BEST part which is the huge pool filled with hot water and lots of floating toys so you can just lounge while floating!

Other special aspects:
- The cucumber lemon water that is available to hydrate at every turn: delicious, refreshing, and a way to experience the relaxation at home
- A great locker room where they have the biggest towels I've ever seen, lotions etc, and more of that delicious water
- that paying for your mud bath gets you a entire range of their services like the locker room and pool

Make sure to plan on a long visit because this is not an experience that you want to rush!

I take a couple of friends up annualy for a Spa Day of pampering and the road always leads us to the Indian Springs Resort. While it doesn't have the contemporary spa "what the..." effect (ie. seaweed/foil wraps, multiple shower heads), it has just the right amount of kindness and simplified decor to remind you that you are in place of tranquility and your urban funk can therefore stay in the locker along with your Kate Spade bag and Seven jeans. In and out of each session, the citrus cucumber water they keep you hydrated with becomes your champagne. The staff was lovely and if you're into skin products...keep your eyes shut on the way out!

Pros: all day pool access, great staff, punctual

Getting a mud bath is a weird but soothing experience. The mud (actually volcanic ash and hot mineral water) is so dense that your body rests on top of it in the tubs, then the rest of the mud is packed around your bod. You lie there in the hot mud for 10 minutes, then you go scrub and shower off (mud gets EVERYWHERE), followed by a cleansing soak in a claw-foot tub complete with pumice stone and glass of chilled mineral water. By the end, I was feeling super-clean and super-relaxed. Huge heated pool outside, perfect for swimming and splashing.

The best antidote for a stressful lifestyle is a getaway to Indian Springs. Check into one of its fifteen country-style cottages or two-dozen comfy lodge rooms and spend your stay soaking your cares away in the Olympic-sized mineral pool.…
