DESERT ESCAPE
One-Stop Hyatt Resort Delivers Complete Southwest Comfort

Awesome sunsets, a mountain-view golf course, on-site hot air ballooning, Native American culture: The new Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa condenses New Mexico’s top attractions into one 500-acre compound 20 miles north of Albuquerque. A low-rise adobe campus housing 350 guest rooms pays homage to the land-owning Santa Ana Pueblo. Its archaeological sites surround the resort’s unique Twin Warriors 18-hole golf course backed by the striking Sandia Mountains. After a round, head to the 16,000-square-foot spa for a southwestern treatment like the Pueblo Dry Brush Therapy. Hiking, horseback riding, and swimming round out the seasonless attractions. Rooms from $150. (800) 554-9288; www.hyatt.com
