"You can't deny the serenity and peace this hotel conveys." The pueblo-style resort incorporates Native American elements like a "sacred circle." Casita rooms are "quietly Southwestern," while Global Suite decor varies from Argentine to Moroccan to Chinese. Both have private courtyards. At De La Tierra, where "every bite is better than the last," meals include sea bass with lobster ravioli and mashed English peas. Staff throughout are "kind and fun." The spa has a Japanese soaking bath.
