A Sustainable Winter Wonderland in New Mexico

Go green this holiday season in Santa Fe’s Sunrise Springs Resort and Spa

This holiday season, the sustainable Sunrise Springs Resort and Spa offers plenty for those looking to unwind, enjoy gourmet meals or sing carols around the fire with loved ones.

Located minutes away from downtown Santa Fe, the Sunrise Springs Resort and Spa makes an idyllic Southwestern winter holiday escape with snow-covered adobes, flickering farolitos (small paper lanterns), homemade biscochitos with Mexican hot chocolate and the famous desert horizon.

Gastronomists will delight in gourmet treats prepared at the hotel’s Blue Heron Restaurant headed by executive chef Eric Laslow, who prepares food made with local, natural and organic ingredients that range from Cuban inspired confections to holiday favorites. Guests staying for New Year’s will celebrate with a champagne dinner and live music.

Quieter moments can be had in the meditative farolito labyrinth, or at Sunrise Springs’ Spa Samadhi with a hot stone massage. Guests can indulge in their creative side at the Sages Art Center with lessons on Japanese Raku poetry techniques or Chinese brushwork.

Average room rates from November through April range from $90 to $215 per room, per night.
