Situated in the Kootenay Mountain range, along Kootenay Lake, Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort makes a great choice for relaxation and some time off, alone or with family. Take a room in the hotel and enjoy all the facilities, along with the pleasant, helpful staff. Unwind in the hot spring in the natural cave, or get into the outside hot tub. You can go for the two cold pools, one of which offers icy waters at a temperature of 5 C (40 F). The water from the springs has been used as pain relief since the times of the Ktunaxa people.

  • The cave is beautiful. There were lots of children running around, and folks cuddled in the hot tub. The cave itself is neat to explore, and there's lots of seating inside the tunnels. Some locals tol...  more »

  • When it isn't crowded, Ainsworth Hot Spring is a great place to visit. The Cave is fun and extremely hot. I can't stay in the heat for long and I love the cold pool. It feels great. Bring your own towel and water, or be prepared to be overcharged for these items. If you're sensitive to chlorine, you may not enjoy this experience. There's a restaurant upstairs, but I've never tried it. The best time for a quiet experience in the water is early morning around 10. Holiday times are like people soup and way too crowded unless you like being squashed into a small space with way too many people
  • The cave is awesome! There are nooks and crannies in the cave with variable temperatures. The outside pool feels like a nice warm bath. And there's a cold plunge pool. Friendly staff. Nice facility. They'll even hold your bag/clothes behind the counter for free.
  • Ainsworth was great as always. Just wish that the main pool could have been a bit warmer because of the colder weather. Also i feel like they raised the prices and 12.50 seems like too much for one adult. But great place overall, been going there for years.
  • Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. The views are beautiful and the water is relaxing. The staff are kind and the hotel is clean. What I love best about this hot spring is the caves. It has an erie feeling, but it gives it more of a natural feel, instead of just a chlorinated pool.
  • No better way to enjoy the majesty of the Kootenays than a long soak at Ainsworth Hot Springs. Wade into the caves and feel the heat then cool off in the creek fed Cold Plunge. Hit the big pool and massage you aches away on one of the many water jets. A definite 'must do' for visitors and locals alike ")
