Ten minutes from downtown Santa Fe, but only minutes from the National Forest, there is nothing quite like this on the North American continent. Among pinons and junipers are beautiful outdoor hot tubs and spa suites, world-class bodywork & skin care, and the amazing izanami restaurant. For a lucky few, it is the closest lodging to the Santa Fe Ski area. « less

My husband recently planned a surprise birthday trip to Santa Fe for me. Our visit to Ten Thousand Waves and my massage with Robert was definitely the highlight of the weekend! This beautifully serene facility set in the pines is unlike your typical spa experience and was truly memorable. We enjoyed the communal pool and sauna, cold plunge, meditation room... More

We didn't realize that it was a bathing suit option group hot tub and sauna at the onset, which was pretty funny for our modest group. The facility itself is really nice, but after spending shockingly up to $700 per couple for one hour of hot tub and a facial followed by a neck and foot massage, we had to... More

We weren't planning on visiting since we're in town just for a night, but on a whim decided to call to see if there is a spot open. Our time slot was short, just 45 minutes to use the private bath, but we enjoyed it nevertheless. We hope to be back for a longer visit. It was definitely one of... More

We booked the Ofura private bath and sauna, and it really was lovely. Luxurious, super clean, and authentic. Have visited many spas and resorts, and this is something special.

Jessica was the massage therapist and although I have been to the Waves many times over the last 20 years, this was the best massage I've had here.

My sister and I had a massage at this lovely place one afternoon during our visit to Santa Fe. Located a short distance from the plaza (3 plus miles) and easy to get to was a nice feature for two older ladies. Since we had never been here, we had no idea what to do or expect. The instructions were... More

I will return again!! The atmosphere is relaxing in & of itself. Massage was not relaxing & painful at times (that is how it was supposed to be) but I felt amazing the next day. The private bath and the head & foot massage was heaven. I bought products that were used on my and a t-shirt to remember my... More

A beautiful, relaxing retreat inn the mountains above Santa Fe. Splurge on a private room if you can and avoid the public baths, unless that is your preference. The message was top-notch. My masseuse did her job skillfully, and with sensitivity to my reactions. The facility is quite attractive with much attention to its Japanese style and inspiration. Our private... More

This is one of those rare times when I don't even have to think twice about a rating. This is truly a one of a kind experience - the setting, the service and staff, the overall experience is one of complete indulgence. And, let's face it, with all the problems in the world and economy, don't you deserve to truly... More

I have been before, so I knew what to expect. The service was outstanding. Richard, Sara and Midori (my masseuse ) are to be commended for their top notch service and guest treatment. I was Midori's last customer but I could not tell that. She did my massage and herbal wrap. Very professional and attentive, she asked where my trouble... More
