Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Hilton Santa Fe Golf Resort & Spa at Buffalo Thunder combines the best of modern amenities with the beauty of the area’s history. Designed in the distinctive Spanish Pueblo style, the pinkish-orange building exterior matches the blazing Southwestern sunsets.

Throughout the interior are distinctive Native American-themed furnishings and art, including a two-story stained-glass window by a local artist and life-size sculptures of traditionally dressed Native Americans. Rooms are similarly designed with carved wooden headboards and furnishings and Southwestern accents.

Gamblers can check out the hotel’s casino with slot machines, table games and poker. Links lovers can try their hand at the golf club, which has three nine-hole courses, a putting green and a driving range. Or unwind at the full-service spa and enjoy a body, face or hair treatment.

The hotel has seven restaurants, including the Iguana Café, which serves locally inspired meals three times a day.

Enjoyed Most: Very beautiful resort. What I liked most was the free parking, no resort fee, and the spa is very nice as well. If you are a HHONORS member they will also let you use the spa amenities. the rooms are wonderfully appointed. The location is also great, only 15 mins fron Santa Fe and it's convenient if you are going to Taos or Abiquiu.
