WELCOME TO INDIAN SPRINGS CALISTOGA

At the north end of Napa Valley, you’ll find California’s premier historic resort and spa. Indian Springs Calistoga’s palm tree-lined drive unfolds into 17 stunning acres of rolling hills and ponds, lush olive trees and fragrant gardens, bursting with lavender and roses. Blessed with rare, sustainable natural resources, including mineral water from four thermal geysers and special mud made from pure volcanic ash, guests have long recognized the restorative powers of our abundant land.

From mud baths to mineral pools, allow the past to inspire the present and enjoy the same spa traditions and resort amenities of more than a century ago. The core experience at Indian Springs Calistoga has changed very little over the years, and that’s no coincidence.
