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.

The hotel was wonderful. The suite was beautiful, as were the grounds. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Andrea at the Front Desk took great care of us during check-in. By the time we arrived, it was dark out. We were in one of the farthest rooms and Andrea was nice enough to walk us out to the room. She provided lots of interesting information on the resort property and Taos area. We highly recommend this hotel!

We have been coming to this hotel for years. It’s a very high end hotel in a small town. It’s not what you expect in Taos. Front desk, bar and managers are great. Stay in the mountain rooms since they are newer and cleaner. We got a suite in the main building and we are starting to see the wear and tear on these rooms and it doesn’t look like they deep clean often. This trip was disappointing but we will always come here since the grounds are so relaxing and nice. BTW the spa is actually really nice.

When I made hotel reservations for our annual road trip to the Southwest, this wasn't the hotel I originally chose. I picked a hipster, older property close to the famous Taos plaza, and was woken up at 3:30 in the morning at that hipster, older property by a mouse rummaging through my stuff. Needless to say, my friend and I bailed from that hotel as fast as possible. El Monte Sagrado was the alternative hotel I found on my Kindle at 4 am while Googling "luxury hotel, spa, bar, Taos"--cuz all I could think about at 4 am with a mouse running around my room was: I need a better room, a massage and a drink. I am not kidding when I say El Monte Sagrado saved the Taos portion of our vacation. Great room, amazing bathroom. Best damn deep tissue massage I have ever had in my life. And, when my friend left an item in the room, they tracked it and mailed it home for us. We would return to Taos JUST to stay at El Monte Sagrado. Thanks to all the staff for that amazing experience.

We've stayed here a couple of times before and chances are good that we will go back. This is a pet-friendly hotel (for a fee) so we are able to bring our small dog. You should know that this property charges a resort fee, so make sure to keep that in mind when booking a room here - but it does include wifi. Make sure to bring your phone charger - this place does not have USB ports to charge your phone.

I took my husband here for his birthday weekend. We were there for two days and it felt like a week. Great customer service and massage. My only negatives are that the room we were in had a cement floor with no rugs and my feet were cold. I discovered slippers in the closet on day two. Also the service for breakfast was very slow. Overall, I highly recommend this resort and would return.
