Ten Thousand Waves is inspired by the great Japanese mountain hot spring resorts. Ten minutes from downtown Santa Fe, but only minutes from the National Forest, there is nothing quite like this on the North American continent. Among piñons and junipers are beautiful outdoor hot tubs and spa suites, world-class bodywork & skin care, and the amazing izanami restaurant. For a lucky few, it is the closest lodging to the Santa Fe Ski area.

Nothing could be better than a private 104 degree tub under snow tipped trees followed by one of the best massages I ever had! Their on site Japanese fusion restaurant was the perfect finish to a fabulous afternoon.

We decided to stay home in Santa Fe for our Anniversary celebration where 10,000 Waves delighted in snowy winter. The High Moon cottage was warm and so comfortable with a kiva fireplace. We liked the full kitchen complete with a refrigerator full of coffee beans...More

My Shiatsu massage with Diane was the best I've ever had. The whole place has a nice, low-key feel. It's not fancy, but it is wonderful. Our whole family went and we unanimously agreed we'd gotten the best massages of our lives. And the prices...More

Check into the experience on multiple levels..... hot tubs, massages, the Japanese inspired food. It's a great day, and surprisingly reasonable in cost.

Went for the facial (me) and a massage (my friend) and ended up spending a few hours there - just delightful. Well run, and soothing.

Linda Sounds like you had a good time, but gosh you only rated us 1 star out of five. What did we do wrong?

Definitely a great thing to experience. The private rooms are wonderful and relaxing. An hour is a good amount of time.

Relax and enjoy some down time at Ten Thousand Waves. I have only rented the private suites. They are each very unique. Very clean and enjoyable.
