A comprehensive resort experience, Eldorado features Nidah Spa, which means “your life” in the Apache language.  The Nidah Spa is one of Santa Fe’s most respected centers for enhanced well-being with a treatment regimen reflecting the resort’s Southwestern heritage, using essential and indigenous earth elements and ancient healing techniques.  Other resort activities either on property or that can be arranged nearby include a spectacular roof-top pool and whirlpool, complete fitness facilities, horseback riding, skiing, golf, kayaking & river rafting, hiking dozens of trails located near the hotel, fly-fishing in the Pecos River, and ice-skating at a nearby rink.  The resort provides programming for children of guests, and takes pride in the fact that it is pet friendly.
 
New Mexico’s premier choice for meetings and events, the Eldorado Hotel & Spa offers more than 22,000 square feet of conference space, from an open-air Pavilion to intimate boardrooms and the elegant Anasazi Ballroom with inspiring natural light and a wood-burning kiva fireplace. The resort’s unique Destination Management service is available to organize group tours, golf outings, fishing trips, and creative teambuilding programming.
 
The Eldorado Hotel & Spa features one of Santa Fe’s most exceptional wedding and special event venues.  The resort prides itself in meticulous attention to detail, ensuring every special occasion will be long cherished.  From the 6500 square foot Pavilion courtyard, to the palatial Presidential Suite with a majestic penthouse patio, and the elegant ballroom serving up to 330 guests, the Eldorado Hotel & Spa is as its name suggests, Santa Fe’s golden destination for life’s important occasions.
