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.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

We wanted to explore the Tao's area so we traveled 700 miles/11hrs to get there and researched a lot of resorts before deciding on El Monte Sagrado. We booked a Casita Suite for a long 4 day weekend for its quiet location and supposed quality. Everything and everyone was very nice and good until we got to our Casita suite. The shower was moldy, there were cobwebs hanging from almost every light fixture and from the head board of the bed, there was dust on every surface, there was water stains on the ceiling from previous water leak and the main heater in the room didn't work even though it ran constantly(loudly). We bundled up with every blanket that night after the late hours hotel repair man couldn't seem to get the heat working. The next day maintenance said they fixed the problem and then again that night we froze because it didn't work. We also had a new problem the second night when the gas fireplace kept flaring up and bursting. We had to call maintenance again and have them shut the gas off to the fireplace so we didn't have a major fireplace/gas malfunction and he couldn't do anything about the heater problem. We ask the maintenance man to have management call us early the next morning. We had to call management ourselves the next day because the maintenance man didn't say anything to them about our problems or request. Management came to our casita after our call and was very open that these problems were very much problems and unacceptable. He said he was going to move us to another casita but then told us that we would have to go to a yet different casita because the second one he was going to move us to had a leaking roof upon his inspection. Finally we got to a different casita and it was better(especially since the heat worked) but not what we would expect from a Resort that is advertising to be of luxury class. The second casita had a connected casita next door with a door going between the two. You could hear everything happening in the other casita even with a towel shoved under the big gap under the door. We had to shake our heads a little because we seen people being checked in to the same original problem casita we were moved out of not but a little while after we were moved? Were all the problems fixed? Anyways, at that point we were ready to go home. I will say that the manager (British accent) was very nice and he credited us a little on the room to try to make us feel better without us asking for such. All the other staff was very nice as well and the common areas were very nice. The Spa massage's were good. All in all I would say it was a OK resort as a whole but needs a lot of work to get up to the class in which its advertising and charging for. We would not go out of our way to stay there again and wouldn't recommend them. There are other very nice resort/hotel options in the area.

This might have been a 4* resort at one time but that doesn't appear to be the case any longer. We had a weekend of maintenance issues, cleanliness issues, and overall satisfaction with the experience. The spa was amazing with terrific services but doesn't make up for the lack luster state of the grounds/suits.

We had an awesome time at this hotel. Our family came from Albuquerque and Denver to meet for a long weekend.We felt welcomed and relaxed from the start with excellent friendly valets. Omar Adome and Mark Carrol made everything extraordinarily easy with their kindness and efficiency. We all loved the beautiful scenery. My 3 year old especially loved the gigantic bathtub. We will definitely come back!

My family wanted to meet up somewhere in between (half in Albuquerque, half in Denver). We stayed at El Monte Sagrado and it was the best weekend trip I think I've ever had. Every staff member I spoke to was friendly and accomodating. Omar Adome and Mark Carrol stood out at the front desk, they were super helpful and great. The entire place was clean and beautiful. I can't wait to go back.

The last stop on a trip through NM, AZ, UT & CO. Stayed 3 full days to explore the Taos area nd spend Mother's Day weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Check out their website and study the rooms, there are different types and you want to make sure of what you are getting. We stayed in a Taos Mountain room. Large whirlpool tub sort of in the middle of the room. Gas fireplace. Small porch. Lots of space. A few small things you might find unusual, but not enough to detract from the overall ambiance. An extremely helpful staff. Since this is a relatively new hotel they are still working out some kinks but their goal is perfection and they are well on the way. Optional valet parking. Shuttle available to take you around town and pick you up - but its not so far that you couldn't walk if you wanted. Nice lounge and restaurant area. Try the Wild Pancakes for breakfast. Definitely recommend for a stay.
