Upon visiting the Lodge with his family in 2012, new owner Ted Turner was instantly taken by Sierra Grande’s timeless elegance and serene atmosphere. A longtime New Mexico landowner, Turner is determined to honor and celebrate Sierra Grande’s rich history and incomparable reputation, which bring guests back time and again. Sierra Grande is known for its legendary, healing hot springs and first-class spa, offering visitors the finest holistic spa treatments, designed to melt away stress and tension. The Lodge was fully restored in 2001, with additions of a new spa in 2006 and a fitness center adjacent to the Lodge in 2013. All reconstruction and redesign were done with the intention of honoring the original architecture, while maintaining a welcoming atmosphere for travelers from across the globe. The Lodge is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, galleries and the Rio Grande. Minutes away are ecotourism opportunities on Turner’s vast ranches, as well as Elephant Butte Lake State Park (New Mexico's largest lake), ghost towns and award-winning golf courses. The Truth or Consequences area has a rich history, from the Native cultures and traditions, to the gold and silver mining of the late 1800’s, to the development of the Hot Spring Spas, and is now the launch point for the New Mexico Spaceport just 23 miles away. Centrally located between Albuquerque International Sunport Airport & El Paso International Airport.
