Why Stay At Encantado, an Auberge Resort
Most of Santa Fe's top hotels are crowded around the downtown Plaza, but Encantado—set on the high desert 10 miles north of town—pampers its guests with plenty of space, sprawling western views, and the most coveted amenity of all: peace and quiet.
Southwest style gets a 21st-century spin at Auberge's 65-casita Encantado resort. There's not a dream catcher or howling coyote in sight—instead, interiors soothe with earthy palettes and abstract works by local painters. The contemporary theme runs throughout the 57-acre resort, especially in the public spaces that feature revolving exhibitions curated by an area gallery. In a town with a masseuse on almost every corner, Encantado's spa stands out, thanks to the cloistered outdoor soaking tub, eucalyptus steam rooms, and Native American treatments such as a juniper-sage massage.
Be sure to listen to the surprisingly savvy in-room indie-pop CD, which includes tunes from Vinicius Cantuária and Alamo Race Track.
If you're looking for relaxation above all else, dine at Terra Restaurant's stylish bar and outdoor terrace instead of Chef Charles Dale's hyper-elegant dining room next door.

Why We Love Santa Fe
Art. Art. And, art. Creativity and stunning natural splendor collide in this sophisticated South Western city.

Where to Shop: Santa Fe Farmers' Market. Skip the turquoise trinkets in favor of organic salves, smoked chipotle goat cheese, roasted green chile, and other locally grown items at the popular twice-weekly market. Saturdays and Tuesdays, 8 a.m.-noon. 1607 Paseo de Peralta. 505/983-4098.
