Four Seasons assumed control of this stunning property on a dramatic, sunset-facing bluff in the Sangre de Cristo foothills in 2012, bringing the brand's famously flawless sense of gracious hospitality and efficiency to an already ultra-plush resort. One big change has been the opening of an on-site Adventure Center, through which guests can book everything from guided tours of Taos and O'Keeffe Country to hiking and biking excursions. Taking advantage of Santa Fe's endless
supply of sunshine, villa-style casitas are contemporary, airy, and earthy. Kitted with adobe fireplaces, deep soaking tubs, heated bathroom floors and spacious dressing areas, rooms exemplify comfortable cushiness. Detox at the spa with regionally inspired treatments like Mountain Spirit Purification, or take a Pilates class in the movement studio before enjoying a sunset cocktail at the bar and a sumptuous globe-spanning culinary adventure at the restaurant, Terra. Complimentary shuttles run regularly into town and guests have access to Encantado's Downtown concierge center.
