Native American-inspired adobe oasis with a spa and private art collection in downtown Taos
With grounds of tropical flora flanked by ruddy hued desert, the 20 pueblo-style stucco buildings of this artsy hotel feel much more remote than their location in downtown Taos. The 84 individually designed rooms and suites pay homage to their natural surroundings, with Native American details in wood-beamed ceilings and on private courtyards and patios. Southwest style carries into the curated collection at the onsite gallery, which displays works by local, regional and international artists, and at the Living Spa, where therapists offer signature desert flower-infused treatments. Breakfast is served beneath a canopy of Ceylon cinnamon and white guava trees on the Gardens terrace. At the award-winning De la Tierra restaurant, Native-American chef Ray Naranjo specializes in regional and international dishes like elk tenderloin with green chili-chive mashed potatoes, seasonal greens and a wild berry demi-glace. Cocktail enthusiasts will love the signature margarita at the exotic Anaconda Bar, where there’s live music on the weekends.
In the Area
It’s just a short stroll from El Monte Sagrado to local art galleries and museums in traditional pueblo-style buildings. Pair a walk through the famous Taos Art Museum at Fechin House and its collection of paintings by leaders of the Taos Society of Artists, with a trip to the 1,000-year-old Taos Pueblo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For a window into the city's more contemporary side, join offbeat locals in the historic Plaza's galleries and boutiques. Afterward, head over to Orlando’s New Mexico Cafe for its searing chili and blue-corn shrimp enchilada, or keep the art walk going to Doc Martin’s, where you can sit in front of a kiva fireplace with a chile relleno platter—the same place Bert Philips and Ernest Blumenschein came up with the idea for the Taos Society of Artists.
