Overview
More
Ten Thousand Waves is inspired by the great Japanese mountain hot spring resorts. Ten minutes from downtown Santa Fe, but only minutes from the National Forest, there is nothing quite like this on the North American continent. Among piñons and junipers are beautiful outdoor hot tubs and spa suites, world-class bodywork & skin care, and the amazing izanami restaurant. For a lucky few, it is the closest lodging to the Santa Fe Ski area.

My wife loves the place. It's pretty good. It has a very charming Japanese décor. Good service. Nice private outdoor 102-104 F hot tub with a 50 F cool tub and a sauna.

This place is a total bliss! From the baths, sauna, massages, to the lodging and food: everything was impeccable! The stone massage with Joanna was one of the best ever! (And I am quite a connoisseur!) The store also contains great gift items. I am...More

We had a perfectly nice daytime visit and massage. I liked that a lot of the facility is outdoors. The men's locker room needs some work. It's very tight which is very unusual for a full priced spa. The showers need curtains as a couple...More

The property and buildings are beautiful. The treatments were excellent and probably the best facial I've ever had. The foot treatment really did wonders for me after three days of hiking. Before or after your treatments they have soaking tubs, foot baths and a meditations...More

Authentic Japanese Spa and hot tubs. They offer private, communal, and individual soak pools in beautiful natural setting. In addition, I had the best massage of my life here!

The grounds are beautiful as we walked through them to the restaurant. The rooms/cabins looked quite attractive and welcoming. The restaurant building is an architectural work of art and the presentation of the small bites menu is equally artistic. The service was impeccable, the facilities...More

thanks very much for your nice words. I wonder why you gave us such a low rating when you praised us so highly?

First let me say that my treatment (a facial) was fabulous and the esthetician was world-class. But, the locker room and the co-ed waiting areas felt more like a gym and less like a spa. I was disappointed with the environment, but not with my...More
