The Hilton Santa Fe Golf Resort & Spa at Buffalo Thunder combines the best of modern amenities with the beauty and history of the area. 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 Cafe, which serves locally inspired meals three times a day.
