Whether you’ve been in need of a spa day for years or you are a spa aficionado, The Spa at Loretto is the best choice for a day of relaxation. A true Santa Fe gem found within The Inn and Spa at Loretto—a luxury, beautiful, iconic hotel next to the historic Loretto Chapel famed for its miraculous staircase—The Spa at Loretto offers a holistic approach to full body wellness.
When you step into this lovely spa, you’ll first be greeted by an essential oil blend that is created specially for the spa, and the comfortable, earthy tones, kiva fireplaces and wood and stone elements of the decor. The nurturing, friendly, warm atmosphere completes the relaxing experience. From the minute you walk in, the incredible, highly trained team at The Spa at Loretto will show you the attention—or quiet—you want.
The Spa at Loretto embraces healing traditions of Native American, Hispanic and conventional spiritual healers. Techniques and ingredients reflect the different cultures that influence and make up New Mexico. Several treatments use sage, native to New Mexico and one of the most commonly used herbs in indigenous healing practices. The Native Reflections ritual, which incorporates the traditional burning of sage (“Smudge Stick”) with a four direction blessing, a soak in a sage scented bath and an earthy stone massage treatment, and the Native Desert Sage Scrub, using salts, scented oils and a special New Mexican sage grown on the spa director’s land, are perfect examples.
But this spa is as groundbreaking as it is rooted in tradition. It was the first spa in New Mexico to offer intuitive lifestyle treatments like energy healing, reiki, chakra balancing and astrology. It is also the only spa in Santa Fe to create its own custom-crafted essential oil aromatherapy blends, called “Spirit of Loretto.” And, it is the only spa in the region to offer the OxyGeneo™ Facial, which combines patented technologies with a power–packed “3-in-1” combination that exfoliates, oxygenates and infuses.
As an added value, guests at the hotel and its sister hotels receive a special guests-only discount on select products.
From the comforting and yet elegant environment to the one of a kind treatments, to staff, it makes complete sense that The Spa at Loretto has again been named one of the top five hotel spas in the United States by USA Today 10Best!
