Lovely Resort. Close to Town. Outstanding Spa.
Posted Apr 9, 2017
El Monte Sagrado Living Resort & Spa is a lovely resort walking distance to historic downtown Taos. It spreads out on a fairly large campus with a stunning mountain view and nice lawns. I had one of the Taos Mountain rooms and it was just the thing for me. I am a large fellow, so the very large soaking tub was fantastic. Despite what it says on the website, my tub was not jetted.
The Living Spa was fantastic.
On Friday, I got a Deep Tissue massage from Jessie that was luxurious. She was just wonderful and hit all of my trouble spots. When she was finished, she thought I could benefit from a Thai massage, so I did that on Saturday with Rebecca.
Saturday, Thai massage. OMG this blew my mind. I'd looked Thai massage up on the internet, but none of it prepared me for the 'performance' that Rebecca did and when she was finished, I had increased mobility of 50-60%! No exaggeration. She was so, so mindful and the whole experience just felt interpretive, for lack of a better word. When I go back to El Monte Sagrado Living Resort & Spa, it will be to schedule time with Rebecca. I wonder if I could handle two of those sessions...
And then Sunday, Reflexology with Nancy. Nancy was fantastic. She was deft and sure and what surprised me was, there was no pain. Not only that, but the problem areas I had were feeling good the next day too. Thanks Nancy!
I would also like to shout out to Dina in the restaurant. It was a pleasure to be at her table. Menu is outstanding. I will be back.
