Discover Tranquility and Natural Beauty at Chinati Hot Springs in the Chihuahuan Desert

Nestled in the heart of the Chihuahuan Desert, Chinati Hot Springs has long been a haven for travelers seeking relaxation and rejuvenation. With its warm mineral springs and stunning natural beauty, this oasis has attracted visitors from both sides of the border for years.

Owned by minimalist sculptor Donald Judd in the past, Chinati Hot Springs underwent a transformation when it was acquired by its current Texan owner. The property has since been developed into an internationally renowned destination, welcoming guests from far and wide.

Unlike the stereotypical desert cabins that might conjure images of discomfort and sweltering heat, Chinati Hot Springs offers a unique blend of simplicity and comfort. With an array of amenities designed to enhance your stay, guests can enjoy a memorable experience while reconnecting with nature.

The accommodations at Chinati Hot Springs cater to a variety of preferences. Whether you’re traveling with family and friends or seeking a romantic getaway, there’s a cabin suited for you. El Dorado, Dos Amigos, Las Palmas, El Corazón, Número Uno, El Presidente, and El Patrón each offer distinct features and cozy spaces to make your stay unforgettable.

Guests can take advantage of amenities such as a community kitchen equipped with modern appliances, outdoor hot and cool pools (available seasonally), coffee makers, mini-refrigerators in every room, and air conditioning and heating to ensure comfort in any weather. Additionally, outdoor propane and charcoal grills are provided for those who enjoy cooking in the open air.

It’s important to note that Chinati Hot Springs embraces its secluded nature, offering a respite from the distractions of the modern world. As such, there is no Wi-Fi or cell service on the premises, allowing guests to fully disconnect and embrace the tranquility of the desert. Visitors are advised to bring their own food, drinks, charcoal, and supplies, as the general store is no longer open. In case of forgotten items, the nearest store can be found in Presidio, approximately an hour away.

While Chinati Hot Springs welcomes guests seeking a peaceful escape, it’s important to be mindful of the facilities’ limitations. The property does not support electric vehicle charging due to its power lines’ capacity constraints.

Whether you’re planning a retreat, a special event, or simply looking to unwind in the soothing mineral springs, Chinati Hot Springs offers a unique and serene experience. Book your stay today and discover the hidden gem nestled in the Chihuahuan Desert.
