#1 of 32 in Spas in New Mexico
A tribute to traditional Japanese hot spring resorts, ten thousand waves offers spas, pools, and body treatments in a garden setting. Relax in one of the facility's hot tubs, ranging from public shared ones to specialty tubs complete with waterfalls. Later, refresh yourself in the cold plunge pool. Give some relief to aching muscles with one of the available professional massages, including deep-tissue, Thai, and hot stone. Ask, too, about facials and skin treatments. The restaurant is modeled after a Japanese eatery and features traditional grilled specialties. If you're looking for a long-term stay, accommodations and private spa rooms are available, but book early.

  • I loved this place! I have never been to a spa like this one. I have only been to salon-style spas, and this place is an oasis. When you get there, you check in and they give you loungewear and a robe...  more »

  • Brilliant. Perfect. The baths and massage created a deep relaxation that continued into the next morning. The restaurant's food was loved by both me, who hadn't ever had Japanese food, and my husband, who lived in Japan. The server refilled my water before I even knew the glass was empty. It was a perfect second honeymoon. Perfect in every way.
  • General admission includes one small hot shallow pool, sauna, and relaxation room. The pool and sauna quickly became overcrowded. When we tried to leave the women's locker room was full so I waited about 30 minutes for it to clear so I could shower and get to my locker. The setting is beautiful but the spa experience was lacking. I would not bring my children. Two women went topless even though swim suits were supposed to be required. Staff did nothing to stop them.
  • Absolutely unbeatable price for the day spa. Amenities are provided within the single price and they do not nickle-and-dime for services most other day spas would most like charge for. Great atmosphere and service. All the pools are amazing.
  • Parking could have been an issue if we came later in the evening however we found parking at the top by the spa entrance. Massage and private spa was very relaxing. Will definitely come back again. Overall this was a great experience.
  • This place is amazing and something everyone should experience at least once. The grounds and staff lend themselves to ultimate relaxation and healing. The pools and spa treatments are phenomenal and the restaurant is fantastic! Santa Fe is barely 10 minutes away if you care to venture into town.
