Lots of lovely lavendar everywhere, a decent gym, gorgeous views and excellent service. Free hikes and yoga availalble. The shuttle into Santa Fe worked well for us and the Concierge went out of their way to help us. The only thing I would say is that the room was on the small side if like us you have a child in the room with you.
Rancho Encantado is a beautiful, relaxing, well run hotel that fits into it's gorgeous surroundings. Well appointed, cozy rooms, each with a fire place, this is my second stay in 2019 and I shall be back! While it's 10 minutes out side of Santa Fe, the environment is relaxing and the sunsets from the restaurant terrace are stunning.
