Lulus Guide to a Post Slopes Recovery

Lulu gets daily massages from just about everyone she meets. But she knows us humans are not as quick to sponsor a nice, well needed back rub. Therefore, she wanted to help you out and tell you about some of the amazing spas we have in Santa Fe so when your body aches after a day at the Ski Area, you know who to call.

One of the more well known spas in Santa Fe is 10,000 Waves Japanese Spa & Resort, it’s one of her personal favorites because they also have some lovely rooms and they let her spend the night! Another added bonus, it’s already on the way to the ski basin, up on Hyde Park Road. The Waves (as the locals call it) has multiple hot tubs, communal, private and women only. There is a meditation room, a foot soak and a personalized massage for every preference. It is one of the nicer ways to spend an evening (even when snowing) soaking up in a tub after a long 90 minute masters massage. 505-982-9304

Lulu feels obligated to mention it because she knows the humans enjoy it, but they only allow service dogs. Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa which is just north of Santa Fe and a secluded sanctuary.  Ojo is the only hot springs in the world with four different, sulfur-free, geothermal mineral waters. Yoga classes are offered 7 days a week. Hot Springs open 8 am – 10 pm everyday. 505-583-2233

And of course, if you just want to spend an hour doing some downward dog or tree poses, Lulu recommends trying out our local Santa Fe Community Yoga Center. It is Santa Fe’s only nonprofit yoga studio dedicated to offering quality yoga for very little money! There are many styles and levels to choose from so everyone can participate. They have 35 classes every week including 10 classes that are always only $5 and two classes that are offered on a sliding scale of $6 – $12. 505-820-9363

Almost every hotel here in our Santa Fe has a wonderful spa with an array of amenities such as facials, massages, steam rooms and always relaxing mani/pedi. But if you feel like trying something new, we are always here to help!
