El Monte Sagrado deservedly takes pride in utilizing alternative energy and committing to sustainable practices without sacrificing luxury. Surrounded by stunning mountain views, this eco-resort enjoys a symbiotic relationship with its natural environment. Solar panels and geothermal temperature regulation provide heat and cooling, but the most notable feature is The Living Machine system, housed in a Biolarium. This greenhouse-like eco-structure is used to create a self-sustaining ecosystem and includes the collection, filtering and re-circulation of fresh rainwater to irrigate the grounds. The result is a landscape lush with plants, many of which are used at the Living Spa. For those who want their travels to contribute to a healthier planet, there is no better way to enjoy New Mexico's dramatic high desert country.
