El Monte Sagrado Living Resort & Spa 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.

We had reservations to stay for three nights and left after only one. The positives: the property is beautiful, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was very spacious; the negatives: the room was incredibly dark, there was no night table or surface of any kind next to one side of the queen bed, the internet was very spotty, working and then cutting out repeatedly, there were far fewer outlets than in many of the places we've stayed (therefore, few places to plug in phones, laptops, etc.). We were told that the hotel was only half full, yet they placed us right next door to guests who were noisy and who smoked out on their balcony which was mere feet from ours and there is a no smoking policy. Generally, we felt that for what this "resort" charges, they paid little to no attention to the details that separate a fair from an excellent place. The coup de grace for us was that when we got into bed - the sheets smelled terrible! Like when you forget to take something out of the clothes washer and it mildews...it was horrible! The next morning we told the manager about the above issues and that we wanted to leave, he was gracious and refunded us for our two unused nights as well as discounted the night we stayed there.

You only have to walk the grounds to know that this is a 5 star hotel. Amazing locale, beautiful rooms with fireplace and jacuzzi tubs. The architecture is superb, with private decks and patios, a beautiful indoor pool and hot tub, attached to an indoor jungle greenhouse. The Anaconda Bar is very nice, and the front desk crew very welcoming. We have stayed here many times over the last 5 years , through the change in ownership. The Heritage people have maintained the hotel very well. The big negative is the restaurant, which used to be a 5 star AWESOME place to dine in Taos. Under new management, it suffered greatly over the past few years, They have recently hired a new manager, and hopefully the experience will improve, although it is still not open full time. It was open for breakfast, and that was fine, although typically overpriced. There have been comments about the valet service, but, honestly, you are paying $25.00 per day for the service, whether you use it or not, so why not use it? We did, and Scott and the rest of the valet staff were as kind and cordial and efficient as anyone could ever want, including exclusive shuttle service to anywhere in Taos. My wife and I love this hotel, and hope that they get their restaurant up to par with the changeover so that they regain the 5 star rating they deserve,

It was such a nice surprise to find such a fine resort in this little town. The rooms were very nice and the grounds are beautiful. My 1 bedroom suite was only $147. But then again, you have to add tax and that silly resort charge so many places add, in this case it was $25.

I stayed at the resort for my birthday and could not have had a better experience. The staff was very welcoming and I even had a lovely birthday gift waiting for me in the room. We had been looking forward to having diner at their wonderful restaurant but found out it was not going to be open that evening. One on the servers (Madelyne) and the chef, went way out of their way--they opened the dinning room just for us and served us a delicious meal. It certainly was a birthday to remember! The grounds are beautiful, and the pool and hot tub were very relaxing. I hope to go again soon.

We made a quick trip to Taos and were looking for a nice place to stay that wasn’t too expensive. We were very surprised and pleasantly pleased to find El Monte Sagrado. Off the plaza it is a little too far to walk but still doable if you have the time and the initiative. But that is not the point. The property is lovely. The rooms are elegant and well appointed. It sits on about 5 acres and looks to the mountains to the north... beautiful. The pool and hot tubs are magnificent. You feel like you are in a botanical garden. They are enclosed but still “airy”. Well worth relaxing after a day of taking in the sights. The surprise was “Happy Hour”!!! Seriously- go to the bar area and enjoy mounds of food and drink for half the cost during “dining” hours. There was so much we took chips and dips - multiples back to our room to enjoy later. This is a terrific property. We went during the off season so prices were amazing. I can only imagine what they charge during the summer months but it is THE place to enjoy in Taos.
