El Monte Sagrado Living Resort & Spa
The elaborate eco-conscious (recycled concrete, sustainable water-purification) spa has 84 guest rooms and suites with elaborate Moroccan tile work, engraved wood panels, private hot tubs, and kiva-style fireplaces. The Rejuvenation Center draws on another local resource: intuitive healers. Like Sedona, Arizona, Taos is an 'energy center,' so this four-room spa specializes in transformative services like Life-Reading Massage and Reiki. Sure, there are straightforward facials and manicures for skeptics.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
