Our readers say: “It’s a fabulous spa in a dream setting.” The 3,000-acre resort below Mount Kuchumaa, which is sacred to some Native Americans, has mountains, boulders, meadows, grasslands, woodlands, and chaparral on its grounds. The formal hiking program takes full advantage of the terrain; other options include watsu, acupuncture, hot river-stone massage, and craniosacral therapy. Built in Spanish colonial–style, red-brick casitas with tile roofs and outdoor patios are set amid extensive gardens. “This is one of my favorite places to rest, relax, and revitalize.” “Staff are helpful and friendly.” “Fantastic meals” are included in the rate—the locally sourced cuisine is primarily vegetarian. “It’s the best place to regain your health—physical and mental.” There’s a one-week.
