Inn and Spa at Loretto


If you ever wanted to treat yourself to a wonderful place to stay when visiting Santa Fe you have to try the Inn and Spa at Loretto. I caught this yesterday while the sun was setting and there was a wonderful glow at the entrance. Good thing I was a passenger instead of driving. Have a great week everyone.

It is a nice sunset or sunrise. What are all the round things?

I'm not what you would consider a spa type, but I think I could be tempted by your photo. :)

VP said...

A good idea, the place is nice and I even like the name!

JM said...

I love that wall! What an inviting entranceway.

The light certainly is lovely Randy, and I really do love the 'skeleton' trees in winter. You've reminded me that I have to book a spa day for Aimee for her birthday, and I had better get a move on as it's on Saturday, yikes!!

Sharon said...

I'd love to stay there one day!

Lowell said...

Okay, I'll take your word for it and visit the next time we're in Santa Fe, but only if you can provide the same brilliant sunlight! OK? :-)

Hope your week is filled with good stuff!

I think that it would be difficult to select just one place to stay in Santa Fe. There are so many delightful places and this looks like another one.

Luis Gomez said...

That is exactly what I need. A week there. Have a great week Randy.

Judy said...

I just love all the adobe architecture. And a spa day sounds nice!

Julie and I have stayed here, and it is indeed very nice.

We got some nice photos of the entrance with luminarias all over each of the ledges, as we were there in early December a few years ago.

Fantastic light on a wonderful adobe.

I really love this entrance. If I could afford a spa day here...I would definitely go. Nice capture. Have a lovely week Randy! =)

I don't think it would be a place for me. I rather sit myself out in the desert and gaze over the canyonlands.

RedPat said...

I could use o few days or weeks there right now!

It's a beautiful setting and it's hard to go wrong with a day at the spa.

Regina K said...

Santa Fe has so much to offer, art, unique style and beauty. Wonderful Randy!

Jack said...

This place is not familiar to me. And, it probably won't become familiar. I don't pick hotels based on spas.

Seems exclusive !

I work at the Inn and Spa at Loretto. The rest of the hotel is really beautiful, too. And the people are incredible.
