FOUR SEASONS RESORT RANCHO ENCANTADO SANTA FE, NEWMEXICO

CASITAS,

T ucked away just a few miles outside of Santa Fe, this Four Seasons Resort combines luxury escape with easy access to downtown. The casitas, or little villas, that constitute the accommodations at the resort are sprawled over 57 acres, each close enough for a quick stroll to the spa or dining but secluded enough for extreme privacy. The rooms are delicately furnished with plush bed covers and huge windows, allowing for breathtaking views of the New Mexican landscape and marvelous sunsets right from the comfort of your couch. Most casitas feature wood-burning fireplaces, deep soaking tubs, heated floors and patios or balconies. In addition to the deluxe fitness room and spa area, the resort offers a myriad of adventure excursions into the surrounding countryside, including hiking, cycling, and white water rafting.

Handsomely grounded in earth tones, natural materials and big sky windows, the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. If you’re looking for a lavish getaway full of relaxation as well as adventure under the marvelous open skies of the American Southwest, the Rancho Encantado is definitely a resort to visit. 505/946-5700 www.fourseasons.com/santafe
