The area was first mentioned as Bagd in a 1436 deed. Part of the Habsburg Banat of Temeswar upon the 1718 Treaty of Passarowitz, the settlement appeared as Bogdan in a 1723 chart. In 1770/71 Banat Swabian colonists from Germany settled here in a place called Neuhoff. By the 1920 Treaty of Trianon, the area fell to the Kingdom of Romania.
Under its Hungarian name Bogdarigós, it was the site of a well-known health spa including a chapel and a way of the cross, which existed until the 1948 expropriations in the Socialist Republic of Romania. It later became a Young Pioneer camp and after the Romanian Revolution of 1989 developed to a resort town.
