The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Become a Cheeseburger Connoisseur in New Mexico

Sample the best of the state’s green-chile-slathered specialty, from Santa Fe to Albuquerque.


1. Where to Stay

Encantado Spa and Resort's 65 casitas are decorated with New Mexico–inspired art.   

Coat your skin in pore-cleansing adobe clay at Santa Fe's Encantado Spa and Resort (from $325). The 65 casitas include private outdoor patios, wood-burning fireplaces, and New Mexico–inspired décor, like cowhide accents and desert art.

Stroll through the surrounding gardens at Casa de Suenos (from $99), a 21-room B&B. Bart Prince, who has been on Architectural Digest’s list of the top 100 architects since its inception in 1991, designed the structure known as “the snail” for its winding design.

Soak in a private outdoor mineral bath with views of the red rock cliffs at the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa (from $139). Suites are decorated with New Mexican textiles and include traditional kiva fireplaces for chilly nights.
