If you are planning a hot spring tour in the State of Colorado, don't miss it!
This inn offers the world-famous geothermal water at a reasonable price.
Pagosa Springs is one of the famous spa cities in the southern Colorado.
All almost tourists who visit here for the first time would head to The Springs Resort and Spa.
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.
My budget travel has to have a microwave and refrigerator.
I saw several roasters in the backyard.
Great Water in Gender-separated Bathrooms
Both overnight guests and walk-in guests have to go through the office for the use of pools.
The pool hour is from 8am to 10pm.
Gender is separated before entering the bath house.
More precisely, the entrance of men's bath is in the fenced outdoor pool area.
This outdoor pool is fed by mineral water, too.
90 degrees F in summer seasons; 96 degrees F in winter seasons.
It was bubbling from the bottom center of the pool.
Clothing is required in this area.
The same rule is applied to the hot tub behind the building.
The hot tub is at the higher position.
The water temperature was 106 degrees F.
Due to the small size, it was utilized as if it were for the private use.
Now it is time to get into the historic bath house.
Children under 18 are not allowed.
This is because clothing is optional inside, although the gender is separated.
Please take a shower before entering the bathroom.
Opening the door of men's bath, I was astonished by the color of turquoise water.
The mural was also impressive.
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.
Something was roaring like breathing in the entire room.
It was from the natural steam bath.
I really enjoyed the unique volcanic smell.
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.
