Visiting Santa Fe is all about embracing Southwestern traditions and hot springs are hugely important to local history. Modeled on Japan's legendary mountain springs resorts, Ten Thousand Waves is set on a hillside of juniper and pinon trees ten minutes from the city center. The property's 13 cottages have low Japanese beds, shoji screens to diffuse the soft light, fireplaces, and patios overlooking Zen landscapes exploding with wildflowers. Opt to commune with nature however you see fit in the luxe private soaking pools scattered throughout the property or hit the communal pool and sauna for the clothing-optional soaking experience.
