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 just 84 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.

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.

Excellent. I recently made a trip to Taos and visited The Spa at El Monte Sagrado. I normally request a 90 minute massage and Courtney only had one hour available. I can tell you that she was amazing and I was very fortunate to secure that appointment. She is the best. I can't wait to get back to Taos to see her.

I recently enjoyed a delightful pedicure with Jessica at the Living Spa. She is top notch and does a 5 star job. There is a beautiful assortment of colors and products. The spa atmosphere is calm and lovely. Thank you, Jessica!

This is a wonderful hotel that's s bit run down. Our room was large and charming with spacious living and bedrooms and a hot tub. The bed was caved in in the center and the room was very hot at night. There was a thermostat in the bedroom but it did not work. Nice friendly staff and a terrific indoor pool. Nice restaurant.

I am very honest and hope others are when writing a review. I booked a stay at the EL MONTE SAGRADO RESORT IN TAOS, NEW MEXICO based on reviews and in part by the hotel web page. While the hotel is nice i now question the "award winning" or the "resort" description. Awards are based on competition and in the Toas area there is none. Thus if the award was presented by local review it fits. I will list the pros and cons and you decide. pro: The hotel commons areas are nice and provide paths to walk with nice landscaping. There is a gas fire pit with seating that provided atmosphere while relaxing in the commons area. The view was limited but when in the right place the mountains added nice back drop. Most of the "view" was the landscaped grounds. The interior of the hotel was clean and neat at all times. our room ( "tribal theme" )was nice. (there are cons coming) fireplace worked great and the view off the balcony was excellent overlooking the main common area with ponds and water falls. The room itself was ok comfortable. The staff was pleasant except for the housekeepers that smiled agreed then never took care of our requests (frustrating). I will say that the staff was average and acceptable in general except for the valets I felt like just another guest and no effort was made for us to feel otherwise. I was surprised at the very upbeat and genuine friendliness of the valets. Very helpful both on arrival and whenever exiting the grounds while being very respectful and treating us like VIP guests. They provided bottled water, directions, suggested places to shop eat and enjoy Taos that were spot on. They always offered assistance in a way that made me feel comfortable either accepting of denying the service. By far the best valet staff i have ever experienced at any facility and the only staff members that made an effort to make us feel that way. I sincerely feel the rest of the staff at the "resort" could learn some customer service talents from the Valets. I suggested that to the on site manager before checkout. Second best service was in the bar area. very friendly great service. Cons: where to start... Lets start with the room. i did not like the layout of the room. the living area looked out into the quiet commons, the bedroom windows were on the sidewalk which meant everyone walked by the bedroom widow, The noise from the sidewalk of luggage rolling by and the sounds of people talking in the pit area meant tight closed windows and for privacy concerns tightly shut blinds. I think the two rooms locations needed switched. the bed was not the best, memory foam failed to support resulting in backache (both of us). The bathroom was nice with an extra large inviting shower but the shower head was a very under performing standard head. The result was wasted space and opportunity to provide a resort quality shower. no desire to linger and enjoy at all. The living space was cozy with an uncomfortable leather sofa and useless wooden chair. Without the fireplace it would have had no character. The view was very nice except for the pond area below the room had floating trash all but one out of five days, same trash which could have easily been picked up by landscaping crew. The plastic bags and newspaper debris stuck in the reeds along the pond was a buzz kill fro the view. While on the room i will mention that this "Tribal" theme room was made Tribal by hanging on a nail a small bow on the bedroom wall with a drum and chest piece on the living area wall. very cheezy cons on the resort itself... Housekeeping staff not interested in what you need or want if not on their list of that day. extra pillows etc were provided as requested prior to checking. asking for extra shampoo ( tiny amount provided) was like asking our Potus not to tweet. not happening. restaurant food was disappointing and very pricy. again not living up to the "resort" label. breakfast was expensive (although ours was included with the package) two of us light eaters went thru 50.00 dollar tabs easy. And that was a basic style breakfast noting but ordinary. valets like i said were top notch however the parking lot was only about 75 feet across and 75 feet deep so but using the service of having a valet park my car made me feel lazy and snobby. Even thou the valets never made me feel that way at all. in the firepit area the provided seating consisted of either the stone retaining ledge or iron chairs. none of which was in the least comfortable. Possibly my biggest compliant however was the room fees. when booking on line and on the phone it was quoted as cost of 259.00 period (tax included which is standard practice) ok fine with me. On checkout here come the unmentioned fees. 25.00 a day resort fee!!! 31.00 room tax, 12.58 lodgers tax. a 4.00 sales tax a 7.00 dollar "de la tierra" fee. in case your curious that translates to from the earth, was there another option? really a 25.00 resort fee??? and four taxes. i guess in general when i pay the price that this "resort" charged i expect a resort experience. if not for the grounds this was a very common facility in fact it was below my expectations for say a Marriott or Hilton hotel. with very few choices of modern upscale accommodations in the Toas community it was probably the best Taos had to offer, that in itself is a sad statement. but as one sign said "when visiting Toas lower your expectations and keep an open mind" Yes that was an actual statement in a professionally done visitors brochure in hard cover provided in your room. Well said Toas.. Based on this stay i will not be using any of the other Heritage Resort offerings while traveling. I hope your travels are safe and full of enjoyment. sincerely

El Monte Sagrado is a beautiful property that is so calming and unique. The staff is amazing, and is so helpful. They really try to individualize your stay, and make you feel welcome. We had a great time sitting out in the patio, and enjoyed our luxurious room.
