Summertime, June 2016
My favourite New Mexican
Me out the front of the Five Graces.
One of the internal courtyards where you can sit for breakfast.
The huge bed with colourful Tibetan furnishings.
More of the room with incredibly elaborate finishes - stone fireplace, sofa, rugs.
The bathrooms are works of art with unique mosaic tiling across every surface.
More of the bedroom – so cosy.
A courtyard with lush greenery and flowers – somewhere comfy to sit and read in the sun.
A day bed in another courtyard.
Bright colours and Our Lady of Guadalupe – very New Mexican.
Chile ristras (an arrangement of dried chilli pods) hang everywhere in New Mexico.
Playing a dinosaur’s musical rib cage at Meow Wolf’s immersive multimedia installation.
Hike out to Lake Nambe – the land before time.
Highs + Lows
The interior design is so unique, with incredible, colourful handmade textiles, furniture and mosaic tiling in the bathrooms.
The service is impeccable - all staff are so friendly and helpful.
Have a delicious New Mexican breakfast in the sunny courtyard in the morning.
The website doesn’t do this place justice.
