The Venue

Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa is located 3 hours from the heart of Denver, Colorado and in the San Louis Valley.  It is a sanctuary, a community, and a retreat, where people from all walks of life come to experience its soothing waters- to heal and find peace from the stress of their daily lives.


Naturally super-heated by the earth’s active geothermal and hydrothermal activity, Joyful Journey Hot Springs is one of the few places on earth with natural hot mineral water that does not have the sulfur odor that is often found in many hot mineral springs.

We’ll be spending 3 wonderful nights and 2 ½ days at the Joyful Journey Hot Springs enjoying the wonderous starry nights and the magical mountainous views.
