Set in a renovated sanitarium amid stunning landscapes just outside the boundaries of PNN Los Nevados at 3500m, this thermal-baths complex is the place to go for total relaxation. Rooms have the feel of a classic alpine lodge and while not huge they're comfortable. Outside there are two pools set among otherworldly páramo plants and there's first-class bird-watching.

Up on a hillside above the complex, there's a birding shelter beside a gushing stream where 17 species of hummingbird come to feed. There are also short trails to explore.

Meals are served in an elegant fire-heated dining room with large windows offering fine views of the mountains and – on a clear day – down to Manizales. The baths are the only ones near Manizales built right at the source – you can see the sulfur-laced waters bubbling out of the mountainside right behind the hotel.

Day-trippers can use one of the pools for COP$27,000, although you'll need your own vehicle to get here. Transportation from Manizales can be arranged for hotel guests for COP$40,000 per visitor one way.
