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.

It is a nice commercial operation, no more, no less. It was well organized but lack of personal attention. We had a three hour Nippon Nirvana package - what it really means was 50 mins facial, 25 mins head and neck and 25 mins foot...More

I've been a regular for over 10 years and attended the tubs almost weekly. I've tried the new communal tub twice, once after they opened, then again after they made additional renovations. I won't be going back. You accidentally built a children's pool. At 1.5...More

Went for a soak and totally relaxed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If the hot tub gets too hot, there's a cold pool, but we didn't try it. The soaking tub was wonderful and the grounds and location are lovely.

When you live in Los Angeles it's important to get out of town and pamper yourself regularly. So when we're in Santa Fe we enjoy taking a few hours to treat ourselves to a private hot tub and couple's massage! Love the koi pond and...More

We have 125 therapists, many with 20+ years experience. The deepest work we do is our signature Japanese shiatsu. Please call 505-982-9304 for advice on the best person for your needs
Is there a way to enter the place and/or Spa without climbing those steps. Maybe parking on the higher level?

Of course. You can park on the upper level or use any of the call boxes in the lower lots to request a shuttle.
