Hot List 2009

Spa at Encantado, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Tel: 505-946-5890

Book an evening appointment at this spa and you'll see the dusky red sun setting over New Mexico's desert hills during the 15-minute drive from Santa Fe's city center. Tranquil indeed, but that's nothing compared with the hippy-dippy vibe you'll have adopted after a few hours at the spa at the Encantado resort, a cluster of freestanding buildings with a warm, welcoming aura. It's the perfect place to balance your dosha in the hour-long Abhyanga, a friction massage that calms, revs circulation, and leaves you warm and rosy-cheeked. Arrive early to sweat in the sauna and hot tub, nestled amid trees and dry grasses, and, since you should let the massage's essential oils soak in to reap their detoxifying benefits, spend après-treatment time sipping Ayurvedic tea and nibbling on nuts in the cozy "warming room."
