Calistoga Hot Springs at Golden Haven Spa

If the thought of sitting in a deep tub of luxurious mud brings a smile to your face, you'll want to explore the treatments offered by the Golden Haven Spa in Calistoga, California.

The mud found at Golden Haven is composed of 100% pure volcanic ash from the eruptions of nearby Mount Konocti and Mount St. Helena that occurred some 10,000 years ago. Hot spring mineral water is then added to complete the experience. After soaking, you're then treated to a private jacuzzi and a "blanket wrap" scented with essential oils like lemon grass and eucalyptus.
