Savor me-time at the luxurious La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
By Hope S. Philbrick
La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa, nestled on six artfully landscaped acres in the heart of historic downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico, is close to the hubbub of everything that makes Santa Fe a compelling destination—historic sites, exquisite dining, celebrated art galleries, abundant boutique shops, museums and more. Billed as “the art hotel of Santa Fe,” La Posada is a convenient place to set up home base while visiting Santa Fe since it’s within walking distance of much of what will likely end up on your itinerary.
Step inside Spa Sage, though, and you’ll feel transported a world away.
Spa Sage, which has been named the 4th Best Hotel Spa in the Nation by USA Today, pampers from the second you step into its soothing space. The hushed voices and sighs of contentment from fellow guests convey a sense of calm. The friendly faces of staff members convey a sense of caring and build trust that you’ve come to the right place to whisk stress away. The adobe architecture and enchanting décor convey a sense of the Southwest.
Local traditions and ingredients influence the treatment menu, too, which invites you to get pampered with indulgent options like the Santa Fe Chocolate Chile Wrap, Altitude Adjustment Massage, River Stones Massage, La Posada Margarita Pedicure, and more.
While Spa Sage offers holistic spa treatments, more is available to help you look and feel your best, including a full-service salon, state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga classes, lavender steam room, and more.
Whatever treatment you choose, expertly trained and experienced therapists will deliver high-quality service. The folks that work at Spa Sage are so gosh-darn genuine nice, too, that you might want to book the last appointment of the day, just in case you strike up a friendship with your therapist and the two of you decide to head up to the bar and keep the conversation going (as my esthetician and I did—first time that’s ever happened to me!)
Spa Sage is a place to leave stress and worry behind, a place to relax into your true self.
