Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado
198 State Rd. 592, Santa Fe
The treatment rooms, as well as all of the massages and facials, are inspired by the sacred kiva rooms used by Pueblos for religious rituals. Start your experience with smudging, chakra balancing, or a mindful meditation while you look out over the serene desert. If your skin is having trouble adapting to the desert climate, try the Moisture Drench Facial, or if you have troubled skin, the Ultra Enchanted Facial, which features a massage with a tourmaline gemstone (thought to be a purifying stone) paired with super-nurturing products, gives skin a bouncy, youthful glow.
Ten Thousand Waves
21 Ten Thousand Waves Way, Santa Fe
Set in the foothills of Santa Fe, this Japanese bathhouse/spa/restaurant/guesthouse is one of the most beautiful, relaxing places on earth. The outdoor baths—an enormous communal one and many private individual tubs—are surrounded by pinyon pines and overlook stunning sunsets and moonrises. All of the facials incorporate a firm Japanese face massage aimed at encouraging circulation and contouring the face muscles. The Metamorphosilk Facial Rejuvenation treatment combines firm Shiatsu movements with a gentle chemical peel to increase circulation and plump skin; the Japanese Organic Facial Massage uses fast, light strokes to remove impurities and encourage lymphatic drainage.

Ohori’s Coffee
1098 1/2 S. St. Francis Dr., Santa Fe
Family-owned Ohori's has been in operation since the original founder Susan Ohori (who learned to roast beans from Alfred Peet, of Peet's Coffee) first claimed the space in 1984. The owners here are passionate about coffee, meticulously sourcing beans and roasting them in Santa Fe—pour-over is their drink of choice, though you can also get milk-based drinks and bulletproof coffee here. There's a lovely outdoor patio that gets buzzy in the summer months.
Modern General
637 Cerrillos Rd., Santa Fe
Off the main drag near Shake Foundation and next door to sister restaurant Vinaigrette (also owned by creative/chef Erin Wade), Modern General is hybrid of a general store, juice bar, and bakery in one. The walls of the airy, barn-like space are filled with items for the home (tools, books, kitchen gadgets, office supplies), garden (overalls, seeds, tools), and foodstuffs like gourmet mustards, staples like sugar and flour, and homemade pies that are famous in the neighborhood. In the back, there's a juice bar with plenty of healthy snacks and lunch items, all sourced from Wade's farm, and tables with Wifi for customers.
Kakawa Chocolate House
1050 E. Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe
The case at this quintessentially New Mexican chocolate shop is always full of little delights, but they really specialize in drinking chocolate—rich, creamy cups of liquid chocolate. Kakawa describes the drinks as "chocolate elixirs," and serves them in Mesoamerican, European, and contemporary styles, tracing the history of the practice from the Mayans and Aztecs who invented it, to the Europeans who co-opted it, to the present day. Needless to say, this is a must-stop for anyone traveling with kiddos.
Santa Fe Farmers Market
1607 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe
With a LEED-certified building at the Santa Fe rail yards that allows them to stay open year-round despite New Mexico's chilly winters, the Santa Fe Farmers Market is widely considered to be one of the best in the country (it's also one of the oldest, originating back in the 1960s and running continuously since that time). A major signature of the market is the board's high standards for local produce, which must be grown in the state of New Mexico to be included in the market at all.
