Placed like a river rock in a Japanese sand garden, Ten Thousand Waves - Houses of the Moon sits in the foothills above Santa Fe and elicits an immediate sense of peace and harmony.

I've been traveling to Japan for over 10 years so am very well acquainted with the Japanese Onsen. Ten Thousand Waves is about as close as you can get to that experience outside of Japan. Just loved it for the ambiance, attention to detail and commitment to being like a Japanese Onsen. Well done!!

Over the years I have been to several of the various rooms they have available. They are all beautiful and have a fantastic vibe and would recommend each of them, based on your needs.

Angella I'm glad you enjoyed your massages. We pride ourselves on being inclusive, not exclusive. Two of our pools are communal and are modeled after the great onsen spas of Japan. In fact, most of the spa cultures of the world--Japan, Korea, Europe, Russia, Finland, Mexico, Chile--focus on the social nature of the bathing experience. That said, we realize that... More

Ten thousand waves is a very special place. But on this visit, in addition to several barking dogs and a crying baby, there were several families with children. It changed the whole vibe of the spa and lodging facilities. I'm even a bit of a prude but I liked full nudity if it meant no children. The lodging options are... More
