SANTA FE, New Mexico—Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe announced a multimillion-dollar revitalization—the first in the resort’s history—of all guestrooms and suites with the introduction of sustainability-focused landscaping.
The revitalization will be conducted in three phases in an effort not to impact the guest experience and is anticipated to be completed this spring. The upgrades are led by Langlois Design, which is preserving the resort’s Southwestern aesthetic while adding modernity.
All rooms will be enhanced with custom furniture, technology, lighting, paint, window treatments, artwork, and more. The new color palette with notes of coral and rust is reminiscent of the landscape. The topographical approach extends to the decor with an area rug capturing the essence of the city’s scenery along with artwork. In each room, materials nod to Indigenous culture with horse hair pottery by artist Linda Concho of Kachina Country USA. Additionally, the outdoor patios will have teak furnishings and new fabrics, including artisan throw blankets from Tribe + True.
“Since first opening in 2008, Rancho Encantado has been steeped in the rich history of Santa Fe. Debuting our first revitalized room design with the modern luxury Four Seasons is known for while still honoring the vibrant spirit of the Southwest will make for an even more enchanting retreat for our guests,” said Bixente Pery, general manager of Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe.
The room refresh marks the latest update from Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado, which also completed a yearlong, five-phased landscape redesign this winter with a focus on sustainability. The revitalized landscape reduces irrigation needs and conserves water resources by replacing spray-irrigated grass with Mexican feather grass in select areas. Rainwater harvesting, composting, and organic gardening practices have also been incorporated to align with the resort’s commitment to environmental stewardship.
Local flora, including the distinctive yucca and piñon pine, have been integrated into the landscape to instill a connection with the environment. New firepit terraces are available throughout the property with natural stone selected to bend with the resort’s design theme. The landscape was redesigned by VITA Inc.
“My goal with Four Seasons Resort Santa Fe was to design a space that is not just modern and simplified, but also reverent to the local culture and unreal beauty of New Mexico,” said Nicole Surget, interior designer and owner of Langlois Design. “The new look offers an elevated experience that is both timeless and captivating with a serene ambiance.”
