Sunrise Springs Hotel Review: An intimate, boutique resort nestled amid verdant gardens and rippling ponds, Sunrise Springs is a fifteen-mile drive southwest of Santa Fe, a short way from the scenic Turquoise Trail. This rejuvenative compound comprises various lodging buildings with typical upscale hotel rooms and suites as well as individual casitas. There's also an arts center with pottery and yoga classes, an Asian-inspired teahouse, a full-service spa offering a wide range of soothing, invigorating treatments, and a fine restaurant—the Blue Heron—serving innovative, healthful world-beat cuisine. The elegant, uncluttered rooms here are both functional and luxurious, with low-slung beds and soothing, indirect lighting. The twenty casitas, with their high ceilings, kitchenettes, gas fireplaces, computer work areas, and private patios, are especially popular. A casual stroll through the beautiful grounds is enough to relax you at this tranquil hideaway, but Spa Samadhi can lift your spirits even further, with such services as Reiki massage or a desert sage and citrus scrub.
