El Monte Sagrado in Taos, New Mexico
Taking a cue from the Native Americans, a culture that embraces tranquility and the gifts of nature, El Monte Sagrado offers an awakening experience that is both surreal and serene. With charming guest rooms, suites and spacious casitas, this Taos, New Mexico marvel is surrounded by mountainous beauty that further promotes a calming effect on those fortunate enough to find themselves here. The intimate chambers, with their hand-painted walls, local artists' creations, delightful kiva fireplaces, tandem soaking tubs, and private courtyards or patios, are considered to be mini capsules of luxury where the world fades away once the door latches behind you. Quaint, charming, and just a couple of blocks from Taos Plaza, this resort is a part of the Lifestyle collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts.
This adobe-style sanctuary is home to the delightful De la Tierra dining destination, whose menu displays cuisine with global and indigenous influences coupled with a setting illuminated by the soft glow of candles. The Gardens offers both a casual menu and setting, while Anaconda Bar features live entertainment, a mix of refreshing cocktails, and a socially vibrant ambiance centered around an amazing 1100-gallon saltwater aquarium. The hotel's Living Spa should rise to the top of anyone's list when yearning for a much-needed massage or body treatment. Taos is often thought of as an enclave for artists, which it most certainly is, but there is more to the story as well. Fly fishing, llama trekking, and skiing at the nearby Taos Ski Valley are among the many recreational activities, but culinary lessons, wine tasting and pottery classes should not be overlooked either. A closer look and you will discover that El Monte Sagrado strikes the perfect balance between a luxurious getaway and a culturally rich retreat.

Reviews for El Monte Sagrado
The hotel is located just outside of Taos. You can walk to and from town but I would recommend their shuttle (although it is not always available). The rooms are nice but extremely dark, even with all of the lights on. The grounds are very nice and provide a nice stroll before or after dinner. The only negative that I have is that when we returned from a day of sightseeing, around 5:00 pm, our room was not cleaned, the bed was not made, and we had no fresh towels. I called the front desk and after a number of rings, was sent to voice mail. At that point I walked down to the front desk where there were 2 employees just chatting as the phones were ringing... not acceptable. After about an hour, someone finally came to our room, made the bed and gave us clean towels.

What a lovely hotel. Just gorgeous. Beautiful grounds. We stayed in a lovely native American suite on a pond. It ended up being cooler than expected when we were there so we even got to enjoy our gas fireplace. The hotel had a great fitness room that we used several times. They have a great bar with a wonderful happy hour and an excellent restaurant. Truly a highlight of our vacation.

Me and my niece spent a night while a road trip and this was the best hotel we stayed at. We've stayed at Japan Suite #25 (all set with different countries or states styles), with two rooms. Despite I don't like too much Japanese decor, I really felt great at this suite. Gardens are awsome (with fountains, nice sculptures, little lakes), and all the property is charming. If I had more time I would stay one or two more nights just to enjoy the property. I totally recommend it

The hotel staff was excellent and had a great attitude while checking me in. The Anaconda Bar was great also. The drinks were the Bomb. My room was beyond my expectations. Can't put into words how great the room was and the view from the balcony. Thanks El Monte Sagrado for making my stay in Taos, NM a memorable one.
Recently had a business lunch meeting at the De La Tierra restaurant on the garden terrace. It is an indoor oasis in the high desert with excellent food and drinks. Food was fresh, delicious and satisfying.
