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.

We went here for an anniversary celebration and we could not have asked for a better experience. We rented a premium tub and received the locals discount with our Warabiki card. It was so relaxing and romantic. We will definitely be returning.
