Ten Thousand Waves~A Japanese Hot Tub & Spa in the Hills of Santa Fe, New Mexico

Since the time I was a teenager in the 80's, I have been aquainted with Ten Thousand Waves. I actually lived right across the road from them in a large rented adobe with my uncle and his Rock-a Billy band. At that time, memberships for the public tub was only $30.00 a month! Although they have gotten a bit more expensive they have added private rooms, a larger selection of tubs and have had a full staff for massage now for a nunber of years along with overnight lodging. 

Set on the road to Hyde Park National Forest and Santa Fe Ski Basin and surrounded by pinon and juniper trees, this Japanese style spa is the mountain spa that dreams are made of. 

I always think of them at this time of year. My friends were all " ski bums " and the perfect winter day in Santa Fe would be a day on the slopes, followed by a soak at Ten Thousand Waves, and then on to one of the many downtown restaurnts for a green or red chile dinner. 

Each guest is given a kimono and slippers with the key to their private tub suppounded by a coyote fence and equipt with music and an intercom to order foor, saki, and fresh eucalyptus 

This month they celebrate their 34th Anniversay! Oh how I wish I could relive those days for just one night! Especially with Valentines Day around the corner-what a great romantic getaway this would be!  Alas, I am far away in Seattle, Washington. But that doesn't mean you cant! If you live in New Mexico or are visiting, do not miss out on this wonderful healing and relaxing experience. 

Nothing says romantic getaway in New Mexico like a day at Ten Thousand Waves. 

Their izanami restuarant and skin care ~ massage services are only a few of the amazing features, along with overnight lodging in the ' Houses of the Moon '
