Diamond Resorts International -- Vacations for Life -- Let the 'Land of Enchantment' Put Its Spell on You

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) -  Santa Fe, New Mexico, has earned its reputation as a mystical, spiritual place, where the desert colors change hue dramatically and ancient inhabitants whisper across centuries. It is the oldest U.S. capital, going back at least 400 years, and one of the oldest human settlements in North America, first inhabited as early as 900 AD. The city reflects the influences of countless generations of Native American, Spanish, and U.S. Colonial residents, and is a constant draw for lovers of culture, arts and outdoor sports like skiing in the nearby Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Villas de Santa Fe by Diamond Resorts International® is a perfect home-base from which to explore this 'Land of Enchantment' and its world-class art, music, theatre, and dance attractions.

Long an economically struggling area, in the early 1900s, Santa Fe began to find new life through the arts and tourism. Its climate and natural beauty became a draw for writers, painters, and performers as well as retirees who brought an influx of capital and support. Today, the city is widely regarded as a premiere art destination, with numerous galleries and tours that feature the work of local artisans and other creative minds. The result is a sense of unity and living history with a unique and distinctive 'Santa Fe Style' of architecture, which echoes the early pueblos' traditional techniques and structure. Members, owners and guests of Diamond Resorts International® can shop for the famed Santa Fe turquoise jewelry in the Legendary Trade Center, where open markets and boutiques offer luxury items, crafted goods, and antiques, or explore the area with its countless Indian pueblos, historic sites, stunning adobe churches, and impressive architecture.

Accommodations at Diamond Resorts International® Villas de Santa Fe are comfortable and spacious with plenty of classic Southwestern style, equipped with convenient features such as full kitchen facilities complete with stove, toaster, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. Guests are welcome to barbecue on the resort grounds or enjoy the swimming pool, fitness center, game room, and clubhouse that are all part of the property. 

Outdoor activities around the Santa Fe area include hot air balloon rides, river rafting, cycling, hiking, fishing, cross-country, and downhill skiing, or simply strolling through the beautifully landscaped parks. Other notable sites to visit are the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, the New Mexico History Museum, and the Loretto Chapel with its legendary staircase. With so much to do and see, there is no doubt that members, owners and guests at Diamond Resorts International® Villas de Santa Fe will Stay Vacationed.™
