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.

I came alone on a Saturday night to experience the baths, get a massage, and enjoy the environment. Because I was there on a Saturday, it was pretty crowded - I was glad that I had booked a service instead of just using the facilities...More

I've been visiting 10,000 waves for more than 25 years. It's changed a bit over that time but it is still a great choice if you're looking for a soak or a massage.

The communal pool has been upgraded since the last time I was here,overall it's a great upgrade. This area is setup perfectly to be able to soak, cold plunge and then get Into the sauna. A perfect trio for soothing sore muscles!

I'm looking for a place to have a yoga retreat and think this would be ideal but for the fact that children could be running around. Kids are great but just not a good mix with a spa weekend.More

We went for massages and experienced the whole place. We got in the tubs and was able to soak before getting massage which really relaxes you. I would come here again if I visit again. Great place in the mountain.

I loved it there. Wonderful atmosphere, great service. The trees, the foot soak while you wait. Infused waters. Very pleasant.

Thanks for your review! While we don't actually do nails, we do have a fantastic Japanese-stye foot massage. Everyone loves to have their feet worked on!
