“That location is a jewel ... if only”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

they would maximize the use of that gorgeous place by adding a few amenities, doing a few minor upgrades, and engaging in some creative marketing. They could really use some more food options that are available to the guests. Once you;re all comfortable and cozy at your room, the inconvenience of having to leave to eat is annoying ... just a small selective menu ... maybe even delivery from local restaurants ... delivered in real cookware that is retuned the following day or week ... (creative marketing - use the local businesses and their local ingredients and cuisine .. which you could also sell in the gift area at the hotel ... it needs more items anyway ..)

And the rooms need to come with robes and slippers ... it's a spa hotel ... come on ...
and then the renovations they need are to that walk way to the tubs ... and from the hot tub to the baths ... that could be spruced up a bit ...

but it is a gorgeous location and the tubs feel AMZING!!! I will come back, but it would be nice to have access to food while there ... even just a fridge and coffee maker in the room would be nice .. thank you

Room Tip: bring a robe and slippers and food ... that doesn't need to be refrigerated or cooked ...

My husband and I decided that this year we would go for a relaxing retreat rather than spending money on objects for Christmas. 2012 was an amazing year, but hectic and full of stressful life events for us, so a retreat was just what we needed.

The Vichy mineral baths are not only incredibly relaxing but super fun to hang out in. They are described as champagne baths bc you get this rad tingly bubble action going on as you lounge in the warm water. Very very relaxing. We also felt great after drinking the water. We were staying over New Years Eve, so we discovered that water was a perfect hang over cure.

We have lots of eating restrictions so our idea of a perfect getaway generally involves the ability to cook our own meals so that we don't get stuck eating bland salads the entire time. We got so lucky to have stayed in one of the cottages with a gas fireplace (very romantic), gas stove, and a fully equipped kitchen. If you are heading up from the bay area you can stop in Petaluma for meal and stock up on groceries at Whole Foods. Ukiah does have a very cool COOP though, just in case you need to grab a few things, but a bit pricey. We hope to go back when there is warmer weather and use the outdoor BBQ in the common area.

It is hard to choose whether we enjoyed the springs or the incredible hiking more. The property is 700 acres and the owner Gilbert does a great job keeping up the trails. If you have any questions or need recommendations pop into the front office. Everyone was super sweet and accommodating.

Best way to follow up a hike and soak in the bathes is a massage... Shona and Lucy are both very talented therapists and we'd recommend either one.

Room Tip: Recommend the cottage for the kitchen and privacy.

Again and again I return to this beautiful resort and am never disappointed.
The magical waters, hiking, wildlife and beautiful grounds add to the enjoyment of our stay.
The staff are professionals and very helpful. We love the massages which are exceptional. My favorite still is star gazing in the spa late at night.
Will continue to return and tell my friends about this fabulous resort. Love that it is low key but has all the amenities to make our stay perfect.

Room Tip: Cottages are fabulous-complete houses

From the moment we arrived to this beautiful spa resort tucked into the hills, I could feel relaxation set in. The staff was warm and friendly and accommodating. We arrived late, and were golf carted to our cottage which was warm and beautifully appointed. We enjoyed a great sleep in the super comfortable bed and then a delicious breakfast with tons of fresh fruit, fantastic coffee and delicious pastries. Hiking in the hills was breath-taking, peaceful, and invigorating. But the best part of all was definitely the mineral baths. Soaking in this naturally carbonated mineral water felt like floating in champagne and better yet, when out of the bath after only 20 minutes I could see and feel that my skin was better. Blemishes seemed to disappear, balance was restored to my acne prone, oily skin. It was lovely, easy and with no down-sides or side-effects. I would have recommended this spa to anyone, but to those with skin conditions, it is a MUST!
They make no claims of health on their website or at the resort, but speaking as a recent visitor and also as a practicing physician, I am very convinced that there are indeed health benefits with this natural mineral spring water. I know that internationally, it is accepted that such water has healing, medicinal properties. I think that this is just that and we who have the opportunity to try it, owe it to ourselves. If nothing more, it is relaxing and who doesn't need a little of that?
Thank you Vichy Springs Resort staff! I am already looking forward to my next visit.

We were hoping for leaf color but were couple of weeks too early - that being said the mineral baths are quite nice! Suggest you get in them early (between 9:00 and 11:00) to catch the strongest velocity, noticed that once they filled up didn't seem to bubble as much. Everything is simple, nice and rustic, clean and relaxing - the mineral hot tub was also quite nice; Great plants on the grounds and the accommodations are simple but clean and pleasant - comfy beds, privacy and the view from the mountain room was very nice. Overall, a great base camp for hiking, dinners in Ukiah are great (YOU MUST TRY THE UKIAH PILSNER at the Ukiah Brew house!!) Def served the purpose of helping to shake off the 100 hour work week. We'll go back sometime for sure!

Room Tip: Mountain view is not a huge mountain, the river view rooms are closer to the tubs, but its not the l...

Just returned from our second trip to Vichy Springs. The place is magical. We took our kids both times and they had a blast, although I think this would also be a very romantic site for a couple. If you want to completely unwind, relax, and unplug, this is the place to be.

The free continental breakfast is plentiful and beautiful. They do a nice job with the variety, the fresh fruit, the delicious baked goods... and the healthy foods too.

My husband and kids got massages onsite, and all reported that they were wonderful. My husband actually marvelled that it might have been his best massage ever.

The accommodations are comfortable. We rented a 2-bedroom cottage with kitchen both times, which was perfect. We used the onsite bbq (tools, lighter fluid, wood provided) and dined outside on the green lawn, watching the wild turkeys. There are plenty of picnic tables, but we also had a table on our private deck and in our cottage.

The rooms are not luxury, but they are clean, updated, and very comfortable.

The pool, tubs, and hot tub are of course the main attraction. We spent hours lazing around them.

And we went on great hikes around the property--found another mineral spring, saw the waterfall, and had fun with frogs and newts in the waterfall pool.

What I liked so much about Vichy is there is so much to do, and also nothing to do. You choose your amount of activity based on what you feel like. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend this place for a relaxing getaway--any time of year. It's really magical.

Room Tip: We prefer the cottages so we don't have to leave the property to eat meals.

Recently went to Vichy Springs. The place is beautiful and quiet. A perfect place to recharge and feel rejuvenated. The room was clean and spacious. There is no TV but they have WIFI. No need for TV anyway when you can watch deer & turkey TV!!! The mineral baths were magical and lived up to the name champagne baths. The massage was heavenly. The staff was very nice and friendly. The breakfast had a nice variety of foods. I will definitely go back.....
