We just got back from our extremely short, but relaxing trip to Santa Fe. We stayed in the Full Moon lodging. It was a very serene experience. The lodging itself was beautiful and zen. Full Moon is the only lodging with a full kitchen. We ended up not using it, but it is available. There is also a washer and dryer if you are staying longer than we did.
The weather is fantastic in Santa Fe so there is no air conditioning in this lodging. It did get a little stuffy in the room at night so we left windows opened at used the provided fans- this worked just fine. Plus there is just something nice about listening to the wind in the trees. There is construction going on for the new restaurant so be advised. It was not really that bad and was just during the daytime hours.
Amenities in your room include: full size bath products ( shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotion) if you want to keep them they sale them to you at a discounted rate ($12 vs $16 I think). A "continental breakfast" Is included but sparse. This includes coffee, tea, rice milk, granola, fruit (which is also the table center piece) in the room. The granola was probably the best granola I have ever had in my life. Either it was really that good, or I was that hungry. Remember you can always stock the full size fridge and cook on the full size stove if that is an issue. Lodging guests also get to use some of the communal areas for free.
Yes, there are ten thousand steps from the lodging to the spa. So be advised if this is going to be an issue.
All in all it was a great, serene trip and I would stay here again.
