“very professional and serene atmosphere”
Review of Ten Thousand Waves

Ten Thousand Waves
Ranked #1 of 41 Spas & Wellness in Santa Fe
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Ten Thousand Waves is inspired by the great Japanese mountain hot spring resorts. Ten minutes from downtown Santa Fe, but only minutes from the National Forest, there is nothing quite like this on the North American continent. Among piñons and junipers are beautiful outdoor hot tubs and spa suites, world-class bodywork & skin care, and the amazing izanami restaurant. For a lucky few, it is the closest lodging to the Santa Fe Ski area.

“No chemicals.”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

I love that 10k Waves uses filters rather than chemicals to clean their water. Very pristine Japanese atmosphere. Pricey, but hey, it's Santa Fe. If you are going to splurge, this is the place.

While a great experience, it is definitely not cheap.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

This was my second visit. This year I did the private bath and hot stone massage. It was wonderful. Make sure you take an afternoon when you are in Santa Fe to visit this bath house and spa.
