My husband and I spent a night at Ten Thousand Waves in September 2012. It was his first time ever at a spa but I have traveled to destination spas for several years. It seemed a little disorganized upon check in but that may just be because the other spa I travel to regularly is absolutely top notch and I...

Came for a girls wknd from CO. The ladies tub is clothing optional. Most Santa Fe people are very natural & super friendly. We loved the hot springs & sauna. Some ladies were in town from CO celebrating a b-day & stayed in the room. They said it was super nice. We opted not to stay, kinda pricy I feel....

My husband had a conference in Santa Fe and I joined him for an extended weekend. We stayed at the Inn at the Loretto initially, which was a nice hotel. However, we had massages at ten thousand waves and decided to stay here for our remaining three days. We loved it. The entire property is meticulously landscaped (the hotel and...

read an article years ago in Marie Claire or Glamour or some other such publication about the great lodging at Ten Thousand Waves -- Houses of the Moon. It was their offering of Airstream trailers that attracted me, but alas, they no longer offer them. I was offered the Luna room for my stay, and it was such a lovely...

Cozy, comfortable, relaxing and clean room/cottage. Staff was friendly and accomodating and that is including the staff in the spa. We stayed during winter time so noise was not an issue. Highly recommend the private baths and spa. Would definitely stay here again!

One of my wife and my favorite retreats. Picture yourself sitting a private hot tub( Kobuta is our favorite),snow on the pinons, the sky lit up with stars as you relax and let the cares of the world melt away, in a mountain setting that looks as if Kyoto, Japan has been transported to New Mexico. The rooms are varied...

When looking for the perfect "resort" experience in Santa Fe, we scoured TripAdvisor for guidance, as we'd never been to Santa Fe. One of the most highly rated locations was Ten Thousand Waves. We hadn't heard anything about it, but armed with the glowing reviews, we booked our reservations and excitedly started planning our trip. When we arrived at our...

First, let me say I love the property. Set on the side of a hill, it's a little paradise and because of the wood construction and small scale of the buildings it has an intimacy that I find most spas and spa hotels lack. The times I've been there I've found the staff laid-back and helpful. Case in point: the...

I had heard about 10k waves for years,and now I know why, truly an amazing experience! Arriving in S.F. was a bit crazy, being stuck in a Santa Fe parade that went on for hours and all major streets were closed our rental car GPS was of NO help but after explaining to receptionist at 10k waves they promptly gave...

My boyfriend, dog and I all stayed two nights in the Crescent Moon room at Ten Thousand Waves this July (2012). The room was really more like a house in that it included a full kitchen, large bathroom, bedroom, dining table, and living room area with a fire place and a comfy couch. My favorite part of the room was...
