EXPERIENCE DETAILS

In the middle of Sierra County, New Mexico, lies the oddly-named city of Truth or Consequences, which earned its name by changing it from the more-apt Hot Springs in 1949 to honor a popular game show of the same name. The town was chosen for the honor by show host Ralph Edwards for embodying the same philosophy as his hit radio show – “A real friendliness for people and a desire to help mankind.”

That philosophy continues today, and is embodied by the Sierra Grande retreat, a serene, 17-room hotel resting on the healing waters of mineral-enriched geothermal hot springs. The springs, which honor the legendary healthy traditions first established by the region’s Native Americans, are ideal for relaxation and rejuvenation along with the hotel’s tranquil spa offering a wide range of holistic wellness services.

Enjoy all of this, as well as the tranquility of nature surrounding the town, during four days and three nights at this Ted Turner retreat. Each day will include an opportunity to explore one of the area’s unique landscapes — including the White Sands National Park, the natural oasis of the Ladder Reserve, Elephant Butte Lake, and the 360,000 acre Armendaris property in the crimson Chihuahuan desert.

Each day will also offer opportunities for therapeutic spa treatments, including a daily 30-minute soak in a hot springs bath, with temperatures reaching 104 degrees. You’ll also enjoy a 90-minute aromatherapy massage and wrap, as well as a 60-minute service of your choice.

Complete with a seasonal dining menu that masterfully blends American culinary heritage with strong Southwestern flare, your time in Truth or Consequences will leave you feeling balanced with the best of both.

FAQ

What is the White Sands National Park? 
Previously White Sands National Monument, and now the United States' 62nd National Park, White Sands is a natural wonder in the heart of the Tularosa Basin with wave-like dunes of gypsum covering 275 square miles of desert in New Mexico. Gypsum is a fine-grained white sulfate mineral often mined for fertilizer, plaster, chalk, drywall, and its sculptable qualities. 

What kinds of animals are we likely to see on the Sunrise Wildlife Tour?
The Ted Turner collection of properties offer a dynamic habitat for dozens of mammals and hundreds of bird species, making it some of the best wildlife spotting in the U.S. The spectrum of animal species includes mule deer, oryx, bison, bighorn sheep, elk, the Mexican gray wolf, mountain lions, bobcats, Mexican free-tailed bats, and wild horses. As you explore the landscape and see some of these residents, dedicated natural resource specialists will teach you about conservation efforts on the properties and the numerous endangered species that have been positively impacted by them, including the Bolson tortoise and the Chiricahua leopard frog.

How close will we be to Hatch, New Mexico?
Truth or Consequences is ideally located near a myriad of wonderfully unique New Mexican attractions. The town is about 40 minutes from Hatch, New Mexico where we will be stopping for an opportunity to purchase some of New Mexico’s famous chiles. This area is also home to Elephant Butte Lake, numerous geothermal hot springs, National Wildlife Refuges and conservation areas, National & State parks, and the fellow Ted Turner Ladder Ranch and Armendaris Reserve.
