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.

Wow! What an amazing Hotel. This place is set on a beautiful property against a gorgeous backdrop of the mountains. The room I had was amazing and the attention to detail really put me in the mindset of Taos. The staff was the best part of the trip. My child got sick and the hotel did an amazing job of finding us medical care. They checked up on us twice and even sent someone to our room to confirm. After we returned to our room from the doctor we walked in to see they had hot tea and sandwiches waiting for us. The Valet was extremely helpful and did a wonderful job of guiding us around Taos. All of the staff here really made my visit extraordinary.

LOVED Andra! I have had a few massages at El Monte Sagrado, and this was one of THE BEST! Hot stone massage with sinus treatment...a full 90 minutes of bliss. Thank you Andra and Heidi for a truly wonderful Sunday!

This is not only an elegant hotel, it is a peaceful, relaxing and romantic getaway. With waterfalls everywhere it soothes the senses. Where to start? The rooms - we stayed in the Mayan Casita which is actually one of the old units from a 1950's motor hotel that has been renovated. It's absolutely beautiful! The painting in the room is after Mayan designs, including the bathroom which has got to be the most beautiful bathroom I have ever used. The room is spacious and has a back porch that in warmer weather would be wonderful to sit and have your breakfast or lunch or whatever. The room comes equipped with a Kurig, selection of coffees and teas, creamers, fridge, television, safe, water bottles (brought in everyday) and a nice, comfy robe. The pool/Jacuzzi - The pool is heated salt water and very pleasant. I stayed in it for almost 2 hours just reading. Then I went into the Jacuzzi. It was heavenly. There is also a beautiful rain forest in the back that you can walk through with, you guessed it, waterfalls. The restaurant - Excellent food! The Blue Corn Waffles are absolutely delicious. They come with fruit and your choice of bacon or sausage. My husband had the "American" which had pancakes, sausage, bacon and I can't remember what else. It too, according to him, was extremely good! Anaconda bar - very nicely appointed. The bathroom (at least the ladies) is lined with bamboo bark. The drinks are reasonably priced. In short, this has become our "Stay" place when we come to Taos!!

We asked for a quiet room but were given a room upstairs in the 500 building. Guess what? The 500 building is the ONLY building where there is an ice maker. Granted, it wasn't as bad as some ice makers, but it was noticeable. We should have asked to be moved to a different building. Unfortunately, we didn't.
