The luxurious El Monte Sagrado Living Resort and Spa, located in Taos, New Mexico, is a place as unique as the philosophy that guides it. Renowned for its commitments to ecological preservation and sustainability, the lush sanctuary of El Monte Sagrado is where you can nurture your mind, body and soul, naturally.

The property was planned to exist in harmony with the land, including a Sacred Circle of green space and cottonwood trees bordered by waterfalls, stone water sculptures, a wooden foot bridge, stocked trout pond, and an abundance of regional flora and foliage. In the fall, the cottonwoods and aspens bathe the property in a golden glow. Parts of the resort are geo-thermally heated and cooled, and nearly all water on the property is recycled by the Living Machine, an ecologically engineered system for collecting, treating and recycling water with minimal impact on the land.

With exquisite elegance, the resort offers 36 suites and casitas with decor that reflects an array of global influences inspired by Native American culture, foreign lands and local artists. While here, also enjoy the serene experience of the The Living Spa and the culinary delights at the De la Tierra restaurant. El Monte Sagrado boasts an impressive list of accolades from the likes of AAA, Conde Nast Traveler and Forbes Traveler.
