Of the eight bathhouses that comprise the world-famous Bathhouse Row in Hot Springs, Buckstaff Baths remains the oldest in operation. Since 1912, this historic spa service has pampered guests for over a century. Visitors today can still soak in these magnificent waters as they would have years ago!


Founded by a group of investors, Buckstaff Baths was envisioned in 1911 and construction began. By 1912, the building was opened for services. This business has since provided millions of visitors with relaxing days in the baths as well as calming massages.

Since all the bathhouses are positioned on land owned by the National Park Service for Hot Springs National Park, the building is used for business purposes under a contract with that department.

Today, visitors can reserve offerings like baths, massages, facials, pedicures and manicures. Accessories and other items can be purchased in addition to these services.
