Overview
More
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.

Come to Ten Thousand Waves for the treatments, the location and the excellent customer service. This place is always busy, but for good reason...it is a hot spot (no pun intended) for both locals and tourists. You will see singles, groups, couples, families, men, women,...More

I go to spas in each city I visit -- around 8 a year, so visiting Ten Thousand Waves while in Santa Fe was a "must do". Both the massage and facial were excellent; the prices were NYC/top-drawer resort prices. The spa itself is an...More

The services were wonderful and I loved the treatments. But, the treatments ended with a black cloud. I accidentally left my fit bit in the locker. My fault for being forgetful, but there are thieves getting massages so Do Not Take Valuables To 10000 waves.

Thanks for your nice words about the massage. Sorry your experience at izanami did not live up to expectations. Next time tell your server what you didn't like and she'll steer you to something spectacular
