Are there any hot springs resorts in Arizona?
The above list of hot springs is admittedly more primitive, with these naturally heated pools found along the trails and desert landscapes of the Grand Canyon State. If you're looking for a less rustic and more luxurious soaking experience, there are some truly amazing hot springs resorts in Arizona that are bucket-list worthy. Hiding in the Bradshaw Mountains, Castle Hot Springs has been a popular destination for Native peoples and affluent figures alike since the 1800s. It's served as a sanitarium, military rehabilitation center, and, of course, a resort. Today, its cistern-fed pools reach a whopping 120 degrees Fahrenheit - a temperature that surpasses all other non-volcanic hot springs in the world. Water gently cascades over the surrounding rocks, spilling into the sapphire reservoir below. Relax in this secluded hideout and let the healing minerals fill every pore of your body -- and don't be in a hurry to leave! Lodging options include bungalows, cabins, this antique lodge, and a historic cottage that once hosted prominent families like the Roosevelts and Rockefellers. All of the properties boast luxury amenities and unparalleled views of the surrounding landscape -- especially in the height of fall foliage in Arizona!
