We celebrated our anniversary at the Ten Thousand Waves Japanese spa in Santa Fe, NM and could not have been more pleased with the facilities and staff. Everyone was courteous and helpful. The room was well appointed with a king bed and wonderful mattress, free wifi and a nice tiled bathroom with large shower. The kitchen area had coffee and... More

We have been visiting the spa for a few years but stayed at the hotel for the first time. Very nice buildings with 2-3 rooms each scattered around the mountainside. That provides a nice feeling of privacy, solitude and peacefulness. We had the Blue Moon suite and an extra person and that worked out well (having separate bathroom doors helped).... More

I've been going to Ten Thousand Waves for 30 years. This is the first time I tried their accommodation. So glad I did. I had just gotten done with a full on weekend workshop and treated myself to a spa day and a night of relaxation. I will say that I was surprised to find a bit of highway noise... More

Always love staying here when we come to Santa Fe. We tried the Rising Moon Room and it does not disappoint. Always quiet, always relaxing, always a place to reenergize. We love the spa treatments and we feel like we're the only people there. Best way to wind down after a day of golf!

I've lived in Santa Fe for two years now and I've enjoyed the tubs and saunas and treatments of Ten Thousand Waves often. But this last weekend I stayed in a room here for the first time. As with everything at Ten Thousand, it was an absolute pleasure in every aspect. The room was Full Moon, just a little trail... More

Where do I begin? My birthday bash meant renting four Waves bungalows for friends from San Francisco, Atlanta, Seattle and New York—in order to create a memorable and relaxing experience in my hometown of Santa Fe. It also meant booking treatments and creating a meal at their bistro. The time we spent at the Waves was amazing—other-worldly (in the most... More

We stayed a night in Hangetsu. The room was aesthetically pleasing and minimal. The special japanese toilet with a warmed seat and special settings for cleansing was not working for us. We discovered it was not plugged in! Once that was rectified, we did enjoy it. Internet did not work for us which was frustrating. Breakfast was simple--granola, almond milk,... More

What a resort. My husband and I stayed in the Luna lodging facility and it was amazing. Very authentic Japanese hot bath feel to the resort. I definitely recommend taking advantage of the hot baths and a massage. It is DEFINITELY worth every penny spent! We will MOST DEFINITELY be returning the next time we are in Santa Fe!

My wife and I spent a day at the spa--- the treatments are excellent locker rooms are fine. I would recommend getting there early in the the day to avoid seeing a lot of other people We used the communal tubs and sauna early in the day (it is clothing optional) something you should be prepared for. When we were... More

This is a gem. We read about it in the NY Times 36 Hours column and then after booking for Presidents Day weekend found out that several friends had stayed there and loved it. It is not walking distance from anything so staying there necessitates a rental car but it's a small price to pay. Rooms are small but big... More
