We stayed at ten thousand waves for my birthday, and had the full experience with private spa/sauna, lodging, and excellent omakase at Izanami. The attention to detail to make this a peaceful, relaxing experience was amazing. I loved walking around in Kimonos and the staff at both the hotel and spa were extremely accommodating. They even asked what size dogs... More

We were in town for the week and couldn't get into the other spa in the area, so we called here. We were able to get in, that day for a couples massage, which was great. Everyone was friendly, and the massages were good. The massage therapists were compitent and respectful. The main problem is that- this place is a... More

Ten thousand waves is a very special place. But on this visit, in addition to several barking dogs and a crying baby, there were several families with children. It changed the whole vibe of the spa and lodging facilities. I'm even a bit of a prude but I liked full nudity if it meant no children. The lodging options are... More

We wanted someplace to stay that was adults only and relaxing with the long trip we were taking. We stayed in the Moonlet retreat house and it was beyond our expectations! Between the patio, fireplace, and kitchenette it was awesome! We also rented our own private bath and enjoyed that. We very much enjoyed the communal pool and relaxation room... More

Loved the lodging at 10 Thousand Waves... Comfortable and well equipped. Next time, we will bring our own dinner supplies.. The kitchen is well equipped and they even had an outdoor grill with utensils. Don't be scared off by the small granola breakfast. It was tasty and surprisingly filling

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
