The moms in your life deserve the best – and with Mother’s Day coming up, there’s no time like the present to treat them to a bit of indulgence or two. Here are a few great places to visit to make them feel extra special.

Absolute Nirvana

With a name like this, how can you resist? Indulge in a massage or facial at one of the best spas in Santa Fe. Try the Hot Stone Massage and enjoy the relaxing benefits of heat therapy. Or try their Bliss Package, which adds a 30-minute treatment onto any massage of your choice and includes a neck, shoulder, and facial massage, along with a hot oil hair mask and scalp rub.

El Farol

Enjoy Spanish tapas and other unique and flavorful cuisines at this restaurant, featured in The New York Times. Their dinner menu features Spanish-influenced food, as well as Italian and New Mexican cuisine. You’ll particularly appreciate the indulgent dessert menu with items like Crema Catalana (custard with brandy apricot preserves), tiramisu, and Churros con Chocolate.

TerraCotta Wine Bistro

You can’t talk about indulgences without including wine. Recognized by Wine Spectator for its extensive wine list, you will find varieties from all around the world with a price range accessible to everyone at this wine bar. Try their $30 Italian Pinot Grigios or go all out for a $60 Californian Claret. They also have a full menu, which means you can make a meal out of your visit!

Santa Fe Canyon Preserve

One of the greatest indulgences a mom can have is the ability to unplug from the constant demands of motherhood. Take her to this 525-acre nature preserve just a few miles from downtown to get away from it all for a morning or afternoon hike. Enjoy the 1.5-mile interpretive trail, the stunning views, and the opportunity to take a break from all the busyness of life.

Liquid Light Glass

Santa Fe has dozens of opportunities to indulge in the region’s vibrant art scene. This gallery is a particularly unique stop, filled with beautiful blown glass artwork – a visual treat to explore. Check out the vases, plates, sculptures, and other installations, or dive a little deeper and enroll in their glass-blowing classes.
