Longing for a little Zen in your life? This inn provides minimalist Japanese-adobe accommodations nestled within piñon trees below Ten Thousand Waves Japanese Health Spa, a truly unique place renowned for its hot tubs and spa treatments. Inn guests receive complimentary use of communal baths. About a 10-minute drive from the plaza, the place is en route to Ski Santa Fe. Travelers seeking to enjoy the silence of their own being seek out this place. They need to be fit because the paths connecting the rooms with the spa have enough steps to make you gasp during your mantra. Rooms are aesthetically bare, medium-size with clean lines and paper lamps, kimonos, and such hanging about. All have wood-burning fireplaces, robes, CD players, and balconies; four have full kitchens; and most have TV/DVDs. Fresh fruit, rice milk, granola, coffee, and tea are provided in each room. The High Moon is the most elaborate room, with a full kitchen, two balconies, and lots of space. More spartan and small is the Zen room, decorated in minimalist decor, and with no TV. Wireless Internet access is available in the lobby, and wireless and high-speed Internet in some of the rooms.
