We spent our 20th anniversary at Encantado. Our accomadations were in a one bedroom Casita which was very large and quite nice. The bathroom floor was even heated and the wood burning fireplace in the living room was excellent. The patio was large with an outside fireplace and was a prefect place to view the sunset. One drawback with the patio is that they face the parking lot. The initial view is disappointing and then you observe the sun setting behind the mountains and all is well.
Enough can't be said about the service at this property. From the minute you exit the car you are treated warmly by everyone on staff. The check-in process was painless and continued throughout our stay. One of the highlights of our stay was getting to use the convertible Mercedes for the whole day. You can reserve the car and use it without limitations. We drove to Bandelier National Park and hiked up to the cliff dwellings. Then in the afternoon/evening drove into Santa Fe for dinner. The car was a great perk at no charge.
Dinner at Terra was fantastic and the service was again outstanding. We have traveled extensively and tend to frequent higher end properties.The service at Encantado is no doubt one of the best, if not the best, we have ever experience. Although the property is relatively small everything you need is there; spa, pool and a bar. The spa was great and we felt like no one else was around. We booked a couples suite which includes an outdoor shower, sauna and whirlpool.. Great times!!!
We booked a hot air balloon ride through the hotel and what an experience that was. Johnny from Santa Fe Balloon company is ranked as one of the top 3 pilots in the world.
Overall the experience at Encantado was perfect way to celebrate our anniversary.
