Ten thousand waves is amazing. The main bath is really a nice temperature, hotter than Ojo Caliente in fact. The cold plunge is awesome, although I'd prefer slightly colder (it was 56 fahrenheit). The restaurant was great. We had the tasting menu with a sake flight and it just blew us away to Japan. We loved it and will be...

Our visit to Ten Thousand Waves was magical, to say the least. We decided on The Natural spa package, which included private hot tub, yasuragi head and neck treatment, therapeutic massage, and salt glow. The private hot tub out under the stars was pure bliss, and we didn't think it could get much better, but each treatment added a new...

Placed like a river rock in a Japanese sand garden, Ten Thousand Waves - Houses of the Moon sits in the foothills above Santa Fe and elicits an immediate sense of peace and harmony. My girlfriend and I had planned to go into town for dinner, as there are so many great New Mexican restaurants in Santa Fe. But within...

My husband and I have been here twice and were fortunate enough to be able to book a room to stay here while in Santa Fe this trip. We stayed in the Luna House, which was absolutely fabulous! The room is very generous size with a large bed, seating area, and fireplace. The bathroom is very large and has a...

My daughter booked a casita at 10,000 waves to celebrate my birthday ** I knew what to expect with the hot tubs and massages but had never stayed on site. Well it was dreamy !! Quiet, secluded and private with everything we could want. This casita had a full kitchen that was well stocked with quality items, including a starter...

I've been traveling to Japan for over 10 years so am very well acquainted with the Japanese Onsen. Ten Thousand Waves is about as close as you can get to that experience outside of Japan. Just loved it for the ambiance, attention to detail and commitment to being like a Japanese Onsen. Well done!!

We had an absolutely relaxing and delightful two-night stay at Ten Thousand Waves, staying in the Hangetsu room. The decor and grounds are beautiful. The views are breathtaking.The spa is first rate -- we loved our Shiatsu massages and private hot tub. Unlike other reviewers, we didn't have any problems with loud children or large groups by the communal pool,...

Over the years I have been to several of the various rooms they have available. They are all beautiful and have a fantastic vibe and would recommend each of them, based on your needs. They allow your well behaved pet, which is a bonus. They allow use of the public tub too. It is a tranquil environment and is a...

We stayed at ten thousand waves for my birthday, and had the full experience with private spa/sauna, lodging, and excellent omakase at Izanami. The attention to detail to make this a peaceful, relaxing experience was amazing. I loved walking around in Kimonos and the staff at both the hotel and spa were extremely accommodating. They even asked what size dogs...
