Tamaya Mist Spa:

Many centuries ago the Tamayame came into this world, not as the Tamayame, but as a people in search of a home. They established villages throughout the region but always moved on. After many years the people came to rest in the New Mexico area and chose this place, Tamaya–a quiet and special place.

Named for the soft morning mist that gently floats over the cottonwood trees and the Río Grande, Tamaya Mist Spa & Salon is a destination that honors the journey of the Tamayame. The Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa offers a tranquil setting with spectacular views of the Sandia Mountains. This pueblo-style spa between Albuquerque and Santa Fe is a haven of restorative treatments, inspired by the land and its people.

Full-day spa experiences called Journeys, are inspired by the migration of the Tamayame as they searched for their home. These experiences are designed to hydrate, restore, detoxify and heal both mind and body.  Escapes, which are half-day treatments inspired by the rivers and fertile valleys of the region, are shorter paths to total relaxation. Indulge in their signature treatments: ancient drumming, lavender dry-brush therapy, prickly pear toning treatment, native herbal wrap, or a three sisters salt scrub.

This modern pueblo-style spa is a haven of serenity, inviting guests to experience a truly transformative wellness environment. The nurturing setting and the tranquility of the facility enables a rejuvenation of mind, body and spirit.
