Spa at Four Seasons Rancho Encantado
Spa at Four Seasons Rancho Encantado Review
Set on a hilltop with spectacular mountain views, this intimate oasis has 15 treatment rooms, some of the best-trained body workers and estheticians in the Southwest, and a full complement of salon services. You'll pay more at the Four Seasons Spa than at most other properties in town (it's $150 for a 50-minute massage), but there's a reason both hotel guests and locals rave about their experiences here. Specialties include Ayurvedic rituals and traditional Eastern massages, like shiatsu and Thai massage, and the Blue Corn and Honey Renewal body wrap. Several treatments are themed for Santa Fe's famous summer festivals, from a body rub with ingredients inspired by the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta to an "Old Man Gloom" Zozobra Facial. Do stick around and enjoy time in the impressive fitness center or relaxing by the pool (closed winter). Many guests combine their spa day with lunch or dinner on the peaceful patio of the resort's outstanding restaurant, Terra. The resort's Adventure Center also offers all sorts of excursions designed to get your blood flowing, from mountain-biking to hiking at nearby waterfalls.
