Ten Thousand Waves and Izanami Restaurant
In the tradition of the Japanese ryokan, a few lucky guests are able to stay overnight just a short walk to the spa. You're surrounded by twenty acres of pinons and junipers, yet downtown is only ten minutes away. For an easily accessible romantic vacation to an exotic destination, there's no better choice. We can help curate your stay--just pick up the phone to get hiking recommendations, restaurant suggestions, or extra linens or supplies. Book online here.
Ten Thousand Waves is inspired by the great Japanese mountain hot spring resorts. Everything we do has been constantly and thoughtfully refined over the last 40 years. We're ten minutes from downtown Santa Fe, but only minutes from the National Forest. There is nothing quite like this on the North American continent. We offer private hot tub suites, massage, indoor and patio dining from izanami, and serene lodging at our inn. We are now offering Transformation--a reset of the nervous system in a totally supportive environment.
Izanami is upscale izakaya fare--small plates served in a casual atmosphere with the most extensive selection of premium Japanese sake within a thousand miles! We are open for indoor and outdoor dining.
90% of our pork, chicken, wagyu beef, and produce is organic or sustainably raised by purveyors we know and trust. Some of our organic and local farmers and ranchers are Freshie's Farm, Romero Farms, Morgan Ranch, and Urban Rebel Farms. Fresh ingredients are emphasized in all our preparations. We make our own desserts, ice cream, and pickles in house. Since we’re a thousand miles from the ocean, we are extremely selective about our purveyors and only order enough seafood to get us through the day.
All our beef is either Nebraska or Miyazaki wagyu. It's possibly the most delicious meat you will ever eat. Click this link to learn everything you need to know about wagyu. Many items on the menu are gluten free--including all our fried food. You may be able to eat soy sauce, even if you're gluten-sensitive. Read about it here. There are always plenty of vegetarian and vegan items on the menu. Please inform your server of any dietary restrictions.
