Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe, located 10 minutes from downtown Santa Fe and set among 57 acres in the Sangre de Cristo Foothills, introduces a new holistic approach to wellness, championing invigorating and restorative experiences for the mind, body and spirit. New experiences and amenities are designed to enrich a guest’s stay, leveraging Santa Fe’s natural healing traditions and the Resort’s own unique location on a spiritual vortex. Experiences include the onsite partnership with EQUUS, an innovative self-mastery program co-facilitated by horses, and a menu of spiritually enhanced treatments that can be enjoyed at the 10,000 square foot Spa or in the new luxury teepee and deck built upon the Resort’s spiritual vortex.
“Santa Fe is a destination that approaches wellness from a healing and spiritual outlook – it’s wellness for the mind, body and spirit,“ says Meredith Macfarlane, General Manager, Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado. “Guests will come away fully renewed and enriched, either from an enlightening session with our new onsite partner EQUUS, afternoon meditation in the new deck that is set upon our own spiritual vortex, or a chakra balancing at the teepee that pays homage to the local culture.”
To re-centre the mind and find inner clarity, guests can enjoy The EQUUS Experience steps from their casita accommodations, enabling individuals, couples and groups to reconnect and problem solve in a unique setting. EQUUS provides an exciting opportunity for guests to take personal enrichment and healing to the next level, engaging with horses to inspire lasting change and breakthrough learning in a joyful, memorable yet powerful way. Each experience is custom-designed to serve the individual needs and desires of guests.
For powerful body rejuvenation either in room, at the Spa or outdoors guests can indulge in regionally inspired body work, spa treatments and massages, and take the pampering one step further with the addition of a spiritual enhancement. As an add-on to any spa treatment, the energy-fueled Smudging Ceremony for example, allows guests to set an intention for the coming day and clear body and mind with a sage smudging ceremony, allowing for purity of mind and purging of negative energy.
A luxury teepee and newly built deck set upon the property’s spiritual vortex offers a new space to further re-align the spirit, where guests will have the option to experience wellness in a new way. Guests will be able to enjoy spa treatments with sights out to the mountain landscape, take in a healing sunrise yoga session or meditate surrounded by the scent of lavender that grows around the Resort’s 57 acres (23 hectares). The new site will also accommodate intimate wedding ceremonies year-round, allowing for the kindred spirits of lovers to unite upon the magnetic nature of the spiritual vortex.
To complement an immersive mind, body and spirit experience, the Resort’s Chef Kai Autenrieth will offer food and beverage options at breakfast, lunch and dinner that heighten a guest’s healing awareness and overall wellbeing.
Meetings with Intention
Mind, body and spirit programming at Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado is ideal for groups looking for a productive meeting location that will also allow its attendees for personal enhancement. The award-winning EQUUS Experience is perfectly suited for development of leadership skills that transforms leaders and teams, and changes organisations. The new onsite program offers participants the unique opportunity to partner with horses and masterful program facilitators to inspire breakthrough learning in leaders and teams in a joyful, memorable, yet powerful way that is sustained over time.
