Expert Review

With the most expensive rooms for miles and a striking contemporary, offbeat vibe, this spectacular resort draws strong opinions – some that adore the cleverly decorated and whimsically themed rooms, others who find the resort a bit overrated or too fancy and fussy for laid-back Taos. We lean towards the former mindset, and adore this environmentally-minded resort’s imaginative guest quarters (generally huge suites and cottages), spa offering holistic-minded treatments, award-winning restaurant touting global cuisine with local influences, art collection, and Native American-inspired common outdoor area (dubbed the “Sacred Circle”). The rooms each have a distinctive theme, from Far East Asian minimalism to Native American spirituality; the opulent Global Suites feature kiva-style fireplaces and private yards with Jacuzzis. El Monte Sagrado may not be for everyone, but devotees would never consider staying anywhere else in Taos.
