Our favourite rooms
The two-bedroom Luminaria House is the most lavish place on the grounds, with five fireplaces, two patios, brilliantly tiled bathrooms and a lapis ceiling with an orb-like red chandelier. Of Superior Suites, we like Jasmine, which has mountain views from its private balcony, a beautiful sandstone bathroom and a curtained bed that feels like a cocoon.
This is the land of Georgia O’Keefe, so pile on silver jewellery and Native American prints. Bring an extra bag to hold all of the treasures you pick up from Seret & Sons, the family’s emporium of South and Central Asian furniture, including Tibetan antiques, dhurries and patterned pillows.
Dogs are welcome for $75 a night in certain rooms; the hotel will greet Fido with treats, bowls, bedding and a kennel.
Leave them at home. This hotel is best-suited to adults.
