There is nothing more relaxing than an Inn, Spa and Restaurant in the mountains. That is what you will find just outside of Santa Fe. It is quiet, inviting, and relaxing. As you can see by the photos, the people at 10 Thousand waves have gone to a lot of trouble to make people feel welcome.
My husband and I love walking around the place, and if you enjoy exercise they have lots of stairs. (About ten thousand.) OK that’s a slight exaggeration. If you find yourself in Santa Fe, it is a 15 minute ride from the Plaza. It is worth seeing, even if you just stop to take a few pictures. The restaurant is called Izanami and features delicious Japanese dishes.
