PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

A postcard for Albuquerque’s scenic side, Los Poblanos hotel is a fantasy farmstay set on 25 acres of lavender fields, cottonwood trees and gardens, just off the Rio Grande and below the Sandia Mountains. Designed by one of New Mexico’s most gifted architects, the 1930s-era lodges have pitched tin roofs, fireplaces and patios – perfect for gazing out over the purple-flecked ranchlands.

PACKING TIPS

Since things start quite early on a farm, the hotel thoughtfully provides earplugs, lest strutting peacock calls rouse light sleepers. Bring wellingtons if you want to explore – farmyard terrain makes short work of ruining heels.

ECO-FRIENDLY

The hotel grows much of its food ( and bath-product ingredients) at the organic farm on site. Cleaning products are all biodegradable and the staff compost.

SPA

Designed by John Gaw Meem in classic Santa Fe style, the Hacienda Spa at Los Poblanos is an intimate space for a sensory spa experience. Nestled within the leafy Spanish courtyard, all treatments are informed by nature and inextricably connected with the farm. Their expert team of therapists and estheticians begin each session with an opening ritual, infusing seasonal botanicals harvested from the property. Treatments include a range of massages from warm Himalayan salt stone massage to deep tissue recovery, and facials tailored to provide a luxurious and personalised experience. The property also boasts a Wellness Yurt, tucked in a quiet, forested area of the property, which offers a peaceful place to practice yoga and meditation. Classes are offered daily and are free for lodging guests.

POOL

The heated outdoor saltwater pool is surrounded by loungers, and gated to keep little ones safe.

ALSO

Farm 4 Guestroom is a wheelchair-accessible room with a roll-in shower and courtyard patio. Smoking is only allowed by the willow tree near the pond.
Pick up new skills at cooking classes or assorted weekly workshops, including aromatherapy lessons using the home-grown lavender, classes on raising barnyard animals, and gardening tips. The Farm Shop stocks an impressive selection of soaps, oils and salves, all made on the premises.

Rooms 

The rooms have beamed ceilings, authentic New Mexican art and wood-burning fireplaces for those cold desert nights. Greely 2 Suite has the prettiest tiled bathroom, an especially secluded private patio and views of the garden, designed by landscape architect Rose Greely.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

The restaurant looks and tastes the part of a New Mexican farmhouse. The ever-changing ‘field-to-fork’ menus feature dishes made with home-grown produce and ingredients sourced from local farms. Early risers should go for the spicy shakshuka with homemade pita bread or the chili-, cheese- and protein-packed breakfast burrito. If you prefer the sweet stuff, order a stacked plate of blue corn pancakes smothered in maple syrup. For dinner, start with the artisan cheese plate before moving on to mains of lavender-crusted chicken, sesame stuffed trout or seasonal roasted veggies. End on a high note with the farm’s specialty honey cake or a scoop of blueberry lavender ice cream.

Liquid Bliss 

There is no separate bar, but the restaurant's award-winning drinks list includes sustainably-produced wines, New Mexican tipples and local craft beers. The artisan cocktails are made with organic ingredients from local farms and lavender plucked from Los Poblanos’ fields, small-batch spirits and home-made bitters and simple syrups.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Things to do at the hotel change with the seasons; say, in spring you might take a garden tour followed by tea tasting, or a yoga class in the serene wellness yurt polished off with a deep massage at the on-site Hacienda spa. Alternatively, you might join a historic walk through John Gaw Meem's La Quinta building, learn about the Los Poblanos women who've had an impact in the community or take a farm safari. After you’ve played with the alpacas, dipped into the pool, explored the gardens, sniffed the lavender products in the Farm Shop and snapped photos of the resident peacocks, prepare to spend some time exploring Albuquerque’s great outdoors. Across from the hotel is the Los Poblanos Open Space, which has over 130 acres of gardens and trails. For an all-American afternoon, see the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Triple-A team for the LA Dodgers at Isotopes Baseball Park on Avenida Cesar Chavez Southeast. One night, ride up the mountain via the 2.7 mile Tramway (the longest aerial tramway in the world, donchaknow), and dine on top of the Sandia Mountains at Ten 3, more than 10,000 feet above sea level, with views over 11,000 square miles. New Mexico is famous for its turquoise, and the Sandia Indian Market Center is one of the best places to buy some. Bien Mur sells handmade Native American arts and crafts, Navajo rugs, sand paintings and jewellery. In October, bring binoculars to catch glimpses of the 6,000 colourful hot-air balloons that take to the sky each year for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, said to be the most photographed event on the planet. The hotel also has a fleet of cruiser bikes and tennis rackets you can borrow, and bocce ball, petanque and cornhole, plus scavenger hunts for smalls to entertain you onsite.
