Loved our last visit to Santa Fe so much that we are planning a return trip, so when this item came across our desk, we wanted to share, in case, like us, you’re looking for a romantic getaway. And yes, this deal is even good for Valentine’s.

The Inn has announced its “Southwest Splendor” all-inclusive, culturally-oriented package now through April 2013.

Nestled in the heart of Santa Fe,New Mexico’s historic district, The Innof The Five Graces, a member of the Relais & Chateaux, anchors the historic, 17th century Barrio de Analco, or Quarter “Across the Water” in the language of the Mexican Tlaxcala Indians, who came to Santa Fe in 1598 with Spanish explorers.
The Inn blends Eastern tradition with New Mexican hospitality and sensual elegance. The low. golden buildings of the Inn, some centuries old, feature suites lavishly decorated with intricate mosaic tiles (as you can see in the photo), coved ceilings, thick beams carved by hand hundreds of years ago, hand-crafted Tibetan furnishings, richly-colored throws, jewel-toned carpets, gleaming chandeliers and wood-burning fireplaces.

The three serene courtyards of The Inn of Five Graces are lined with flagstone floors, brimming with plants and flowers, vines rising up and over walkways and arches, tall flowing fountains, and silver-lined lounge chairs.

About The Inn of The Five Graces
The 24-room Inn of The Five Graces, with some suites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a private honey walled sanctuary of lavishly decorated and supremely comfortable suites with dual sinks, deep soaking tubs, art and artifacts, and wood burning fireplaces. The Inn is the ultimate resort-like destination that presents Santa Fe’s many indulgences within strolling distance from its luxury accommodations. Hiking, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, fly fishing, hot air ballooning, horseback riding, golf, skiing, snowshoeing, wine tasting, fine dining, shopping, art galleries and museums are all within city limits.
The Inn of The Five Graces was originally known as Seret’s 1001 Nights which opened in 1996 after present proprietors Ira and Sylvia Seret, internationally-known importers and creators of unique and exotic architectural elements, rugs, furnishings and antiques, took a cluster of historic buildings and created a magical and fanciful retreat, curated with near-eastern treasures and antiques purchased and brought back from their travels. Sylvia Seret, a renowned mosaic artist, designed the fabulous mosaic tile-work for the suites and bathrooms, while Ira Seret enhanced the Inn with his touch for art and interior design.
In 2002, The Inn found its new name honoring its exotic, sensuous and luxurious atmosphere along with its many Silk Route artifacts. The Five Graces was chosen, in honor of the five “graces,” an Eastern belief that people are graced with five ways to enjoy the pleasures of the world – sight, sound, touch, smell, taste.
