Casa de Estrellas: Private Villas for the Stars Shine in Santa Fe, NM

SANTA FE, NM--(Marketwire - September 26, 2007) - Casa de Estrellas (Home of the Stars), recently opened as a new luxury inn and spa in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Casa's six private villas offer a romantic travel destination for weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries, and other special occasions.

Casa de Estrellas is distinguished by its high-end, low-key, personalized services, unique even in the rarefied atmosphere of Santa Fe accommodations. In addition to a private chef and custom concierge services, guests can enjoy a full-featured spa, massage services, and a gym. Individual vacation villa rentals can't begin to match these offerings.

As a special opening offer, guests who stay weeknights Sunday -Wednesday receive discounts up to $300 on spa packages.

Secluded courtyards and a wedding garden inspired by the work of Kadee Strickland, star of the TV series "Wedding Bells," provide graceful spaces for private ceremonies and celebrations. The garden seats up to 40.

The high-end philosophy continues through distinctive interior designs in each villa. Each themed villa complements traditional adobe design with antiques from around the world.

The deluxe hotel opened to acclaim from its first visitors. "The greatest part of the Casa de Estrellas experience is the personalized touch that is always missing in large hotels. This experience will live with us forever, as you all managed our wedding brilliantly," exclaimed Colin & Julia Hill from St. Germain En Laye, France, who were married at Casa de Estrellas on July 28th.

Created by noted Hollywood designer, Jay Payne, Casa de Estrellas caters to a high-end clientele that craves privacy. Shielded by a walled compound, yet easily accessible to the Plaza and to Canyon Road galleries, this "art hotel experience" offers an oasis of serenity within the bustling, creative community of Santa Fe.

As a high-end tourist destination, 'The City Different' attracts both celebrities and business executives. Payne's goal is to provide services to these and other guests who appreciate extra pampering. "Luxury-minded travelers demand quality service, and a small, manageable hotel is the best way to provide that," says Payne.

Payne has previously worked on the homes of such celebrities as Sylvester Stallone, Whoopie Goldberg, Prince, and Richard Dreyfuss. He is also known for creating distinctive environments in world-class restaurants such as Mirabelle, Clafoutis, and others on Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.
