Escape Kit

  • A One-Night Stay for Two in a Traditional Room in October ($129) or November through April ($109)
  • Combine Vouchers to Stay for Up to Three Nights

Natural luxury may seem like an oxymoron, but this week's Escape is ready to challenge any thoughts that once separated simple beauty from elegant comfort. Get away to the spectacular Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Santa Fe, and get ready to bask in supposed opposites at the Inn and Spa at Loretto.

Let the sun lead the way to this recently renovated hotel that mirrors the layered architecture of the Taos Pueblo, a national landmark. Once your car is snugly situated in your included parking spot, open the door to your Traditional Room for one-night stay for two in October ($129) or November through April ($109), where you'll get to know the rugged desert's opulent side.

Your room glows in warm campfire hues that complement the area's appreciation for Native American folklore, but you'll be far from roughing it at this AAA Four Diamond inn, built upon the grounds where the Academy of Our Lady of Light (Loretto) once stood. Wrap yourself in a patterned blanket atop your soft bed to watch a movie on your 42-inch flat screen. But be sure to take in the sights of the surrounding mountains, garden, or nearby historic district.

Order a happy hour drink at the Living Room Lounge, and greet fellow Escapees on a shared leather couch. Then, enjoy dinner at Luminaria—like the grilled sterling beef tenderloin—while sitting on a lantern-lit patio that's across from The Loretto Chapel.

Go for a morning swim in the heated outdoor pool, and then drink in-room tea while using the free Wi-Fi and iPod dock. After, kick up dust while exploring the nation's oldest capital city. Wander the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum or the Manitou Galleries before riding the tame trails outside the historic district. When your joints get sore, schedule a pampering treatment at the top-rated Spa at Loretto, a favorite of Condé Nast Traveler.

Escape here and allow the spirit of the Southwest to show you what it truly means to let the light in.

  • "Glows with a soft vibrancy and the hand-hewn features—right down to the doors, windows, and light fixtures—hum with unparalleled artistry. Murals spill over candlelit walls and ceilings; rich textures and rustic accents gild the lobby and guest rooms."
