Spent 3 nights during spring break as a family of four (with two kids). The resort is somewhat spread out over a large space, and the rooms are strategically placed so you don't really look out to others, ensuring privacy. However, some suites are close to the main gravel road that leads up to the spa, and it's a very... More

I go every year for my birthday to this wonderful place. this year we got the large private hot tub with its own dry sauna. The only thing thing that was missing was a butler with wine and cheese. Absolutely love it ..I would be there all the time if I lived in Santa fe

Very nice attention to detail in the architecture and careful landscaping. Great professional hosting attitudes. Couldn't run a spa retreat any other way. The restaurant is excellent. All the dishes tried were great. All in all, a great spa experience. The spa itself appears to have continuous attention and care - very nice. Now, some downsides….stayed in Rising Moon. It... More

I was in NM for a conference and had an extra 24 hours there. I desperately needed a good rest, before returning to my very busy life at home. Someone told me about ten thousand waves, and I called. They actually had a special discount for last minute bookings, and an open room. Their check in times are a bit... More

Once upon a time, this place had tons of charm, tranquility and a telluric atmosphere. A place where many locals also enjoyed going for a treat in the great all wood sauna and jacuzzi, engaging in great conversation with great people... Recently, the owner made some very unattractive changes to the place: *the sauna lost the wood and it is... More

IF I could spend everyday for the rest of my life at the waves, lodging and services, I wouldn't have a single regret! Get a package deal! Spend as much time as you can there! I have only had one poor service with Daniella? An facial. Every other service I have ever had was sublime!

We're über-contented regular visitors to this elegant oasis in the high desert mountains, and that includes our dog's perspective. From the excellent staff who prepare for our arrival (doggie bed and treats), to the kind cleaning and grounds people (experts at their jobs), we're impeccably served. The house amenities are equal to the art and architecture: flowing spaces (a few... More

We stopped here last night on a road trip home. I have wanted to stay here for years but it's pricey so never did. Our room was $300 for one night. We had a fenced in yard, complimentary wood & fireplace, huge bathroom & shower, incredible bed & pillows, extra towels, blankets, pillows, nicely lit bar with fruits, coffee, tea,... More

TonyBoy We're grateful for your appreciation! Sorry about the lack of sushi, but we're 1000 miles from the ocean and could never match on a regular basis the quality of the fish found in Japan, or NYC for that matter More

Real- the rooms are VERY NICE Japanese design with a modern twist, clean and nice. The massage as wonderful as well. Fake- it is NOT a hot spring! They take well water and heat it, like a bath tub. The pool is nice but I found the whole experience weird. And not very "green"! Sugary- the food was EXTREMELY sugary,... More

Thank you for your nice comments about our design and massage. We pride ourselves on being real. We don't advertise ourselves as having thermal water. All water in the tubs is from a 900 foot deep natural well which we heat to 104-106 degrees F. A little-known fact is that over 50% of the hot springs and public baths in... More
