The Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa, located on the Pueblo of Santa Ana between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, is offering a chile-infused package for guests. As New Mexico is the nation’s leading chile producer, a crop which brings more than $200 million to the state’s economy, Hyatt Regency Tamaya is offering guests a chance to take part in New Mexico’s annual Chile Harvest with exclusive chile-related activities and vacation packages.
“As chile is a very important part of New Mexico culture, we are thrilled to present our guests with a very unique chile-themed vacation,” said Jena Marquez, public relations and marketing manager at Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa. “From picking chiles with a resort chef to the chile-infused Ancient Drumming treatment at the Tamaya Mist Spa and resort’s signature Chile Martini at the Rio Grande Lounge, the Chile Harvest package allows travelers to experience the New Mexico tradition and culture, and take part in a ‘spicy’ getaway unlike any other.”
The 2011 Chile Harvest package is available every weekend between August 1 and October 9, 2011. The package includes a set itinerary and the resort’s VIP manager will work with each individual guest to organize their stay and make dinner and spa reservations depending on guests preferences. The Chile Harvest vacation package at the New Mexico resort includes the following itinerary:
Guests will check-in to the resort and will begin their Chile Harvest experience with dinner at the Corn Maiden restaurant. A chef from the resort will dine with the guests and will teach them about the history of chile in New Mexico. The chef will also teach guests on how to properly prepare and use chile in cuisine.
The day begins with a breakfast at the Santa Ana Café followed by an 8:30 a.m. departure from resort to the Grower’s Market in Corrales, NM. A Hyatt Regency Tamaya chef will accompany guests to the Grower’s Market to help them choose chiles for them to include in their dinner that evening. Upon arrival back at the resort, guests will roast their chiles in order to prepare them for dinner. That afternoon guests will receive the chile-infused Ancient Drumming treatment at the Tamaya Mist Spa. Dinner on Sunday evening will be presented in a special dining area near the resort’s outdoor fire pit. A Hyatt Regency Tamaya chef will prepare each individual dish with the chile that each guest picked from the Grower’s Market. Following dinner, guests will receive a complimentary Chile Martini at the Rio Grande Lounge.
Breakfast at the Santa Ana Café and depart from resort.
After each guest’s departure, the resort will pack and mail a chile ristra, a one-foot long decorative string of dried red chiles that hangs vertically and chile recipes to their residence as a souvenir and remembrance of their time at Hyatt Regency Tamaya. They can hang the chile ristras in their kitchen or outdoors and follow the recipes to make meals similar to those experienced at the resort.
