For its third year, The Springs Resort hosted Pagosa’s ultimate hot springs experience, Hot Springs Fest. Due to immense popularity, this year’s event sold out a week before the date, with guests coming from across the country.
The Springs Resort introduced Hot Springs Fest in 2020 to provide locals and visitors with a water-based wellness experience featuring Pagosa’s healing geothermal waters at the center of it all.
With over 40 pools to choose from and temperatures ranging from 50 degrees to a steamy 112 degrees, guests soaked in the waters and enjoy the healing benefits of Pagosa’s geothermal hot springs. Hot Springs Fest is not only about recreational soaking but also about promoting water-based wellness. The geothermal waters in Pagosa are known as “healing waters” because of the natural minerals present with therapeutic properties.
Expanding beyond the bathing experience, The Springs introduced guests to over a dozen wellness activities, including aqua sound bathing, aqua yoga, and meditation.
During aqua sound bathing, guests experienced the unique healing properties of music in the water through a multi-sensory experience. Aqua yoga classes were also available, where attendees stretched and moved while soaking in Pagosa’s geothermal waters.
To make the festival more inclusive, The Springs Resort offered five free wellness activities to the public, such as Community Meditation and Community Yoga. Furthermore, they welcomed guests to try a new selection of wellness-centric drinks at the Vitality Tonic Tasting.
