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.

Beautiful Japanese Bath in the hills above Santa Fe. Been there twice, can't wait to go back. Quiet, peaceful setting to soak in one of their many private baths or the community bath.

Ten Thousand Waves is by far a must when visiting Santa Fe. World class therapists will knead your flesh and soften your skin until you feel rejuvenated from the hot desert sun. The Japanese architecture and décor is beautiful and transports one to the far...More

We have 125 therapists, many with 20+ years experience. The deepest work we do is our signature Japanese shiatsu. Please call 505-982-9304 for advice on the best person for your needs
Is there a way to enter the place and/or Spa without climbing those steps. Maybe parking on the higher level?

Of course. You can park on the upper level or use any of the call boxes in the lower lots to request a shuttle.
