The AAA 4-Diamond El Monte Sagrado Living Resort and Spa, surrounded by unbridled mountains and desert, is as swanky as it comes in laid-back New Mexico -- so much so that it nabbed a spot on Conde Nast Traveler’s Gold List in 2013.
It’s also in a prime spot from which to explore Taos. Find art galleries and some serious cowboy chow along Taos Plaza, a 10-minute walk away. The 1,000-year-old Taos Pueblo (considered the oldest continuously inhabited community in the U.S.) is 10 minutes north by car, and a bit farther up the road is Taos Ski Valley, which features world-class slopes.
Similar to the architecture of the ancient Taos Pueblo, El Monte Sagrado is a Native American-inspired oasis. Its luxe suites and casitas are dolled up in earthy, eclectic décor, including original works by local artists in all styles ranging from Native American to Tibetan, and some feature a fireplace and private courtyard. The spacious standard rooms come with a standalone soaking tub and must-have views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Because Taos is known for its mystical magnificence, spa treatments involving sacred indigenous crystals sound about right. Get one at the cozy on-site Living Spa, which uses elements like blue turquoise and fossilized desert salt in its healing therapies. De la Tierra, the property’s AAA 4-Diamond restaurant, serves locally inspired dishes with plenty of opportunities for guests to sample New Mexico’s famous green chili. Afterwards, sip signature margaritas at the Anaconda Bar next door.
An on-property art gallery is also a nice diversion, and a heated indoor pool with hot tub and sauna are ideal during those chilly Taos evenings.
