Southwest-chic retreat with high-desert vistas, firepits, spa and full range of adventure activities
A contemporary, clean-lined take on desert Southwest, with subtle Native American design-touches like Indian pottery and graphic print blankets as rugs. But the real stars are the vast slopes of the high desert and the juniper-strewn foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, seen through big windows, outdoor gathering places around fire pits, and the rooms’ giant terraces.
Bed and Bath
Bedrooms are finished in an earth-toned color palette, wood-beamed ceilings, and round, kiva-style fireplaces that burn actual wood (a rarity, and appreciated at least half of the year, when the desert nights get cold). The rooms are some of the biggest in Santa Fe, starting at 630 square feet, and have similarly scaled marble bathrooms, complete with 100-gallon bathtubs for two.
The unpretentious, laid-back Terra restaurant features local organic ingredients in modern-American dishes, with only the slightest references to the location (a poblano chile crab cake, a chipotle dipping sauce for French fries). The pretty, light-filled spa specializes in Native American–inspired treatments like a juniper-sage massage and blue-corn-and-honey body scrub, as well as Ayurvedic and traditional Eastern treatments.
In the Area
The Four Seasons is in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, home to hiking and biking trails and the Santa Fe Ski Area. Let the Four Seasons concierge hook you up with mountain biking excursions, tours of ancient trails and dwellings from the 1400s and days of art excursions. The Santa Fe Opera’s summer season is world famous for both its stunning outdoor amphitheater and the quality of talent it attracts. For a culture fix in town, there’s the burgeoning Railyard district, home to contemporary art galleries such as SITE Santa Fe and the perennially popular Tomasita’s New Mexican restaurant.
