Spas & Wellness

Peaceful Paso Robles has been a spa town for more than a century. The community's natural hot springs attracted early visitors, and rejuvenating, mineral-rich waters still flow at several area properties. Day spas and resort spas capitalize on this serene California setting with facilities framed by views of mountains and grapevines. Wellness here also means fruit and produce fresh from area fields, plus local wines for an added treat.

From classic massages and therapeutic treatments to skincare, salon services, yoga retreats and hot springs soaks, Paso is the place to relax and recharge. Plan your getaway with this guide to Paso Robles spas and wellness centers.


Best of Hot Springs

hot springs

Natural springs put this region on the map more than 100 years before Paso Robles was incorporated. Native Salinan communities introduced Spanish missionaries to local hot sulfur pools in the late 1700s. Bathhouses, mud baths and plunge pools drew travelers throughout the 1800s. Today, Paso’s main downtown street is named Spring for those artesian waters. Dip into the magic at these Paso Robles spa hotels and hot springs destinations.

Paso Robles Inn

Hot springs once flowed throughout downtown Paso, including at the site of the Paso Robles Inn. This 98-room icon, operating since 1889, celebrates those healing waters with 18 dedicated spa rooms. Each has a mineral spa tub set on a private patio or balcony, plus an in-room fireplace and art and amenities inspired by local wineries. The resort stretches along Downtown City Park, and it also wraps around lush gardens with quiet walking paths and koi ponds.
