This intimate spa set amid the gracious gardens beside the late-Victorian Madeleine Inn lives up to its name with its lush, peaceful Indonesian-inspired setting and sumptuous treatments, some of which—like the pumpkin-infused massage, exfoliation, and mask offered in the fall—are change seasonally. Master-level massage therapists use all-organic, delectable food-grade ingredients. Among year-round treatments, the Indo-Asian hot-stone massage and Chocolate Decadence facial are highly popular. Most treatments finish with homemade snacks, and a variety of add-ons are available, including 30-minute foot massages and leisurely rose-petal baths in a massive stone tub. Cozy, low-keyed, and eco-friendly (it's certified by the nonprofit Green Spa Network), Absolute Nirvana has more limited facilities than some of Santa Fe's major resort facilities, but that's a big part of its charm—the price is right, too. It's $105 for a 60-minute massage and $325–$375 for a half-day spa package.
