Experience a Sensorial Journey in the Inn of the Five GracesFriday 18 August 2017
Located in one of Santa Fe’s most historic neighbourhoods, designers Ira and Sylvia Seret transformed a neglected cluster of traditional adobe buildings into a unique hotel, the Inn of the Five Graces. As internationally-known importers of exotic antiques, rugs, textiles and architectural elements, the Serets conceived the hotel as a showcase for their combined creative talents. From its 1996 opening as “Serets’ 1001 Nights”, the 24-suite hotel has been a magical retreat, brimming with the most exquisite of the Serets’ treasures, collected on travels through Central and South Asia. Sylvia Seret’s glorious one-of-a-kind tile mosaics adorn the suites’ kitchens and bathrooms, while Ira Seret’s signature design style makes every space an extraordinary living experience.
The name, “Five Graces”, refers to an Eastern concept — the five graces of sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. Each needs to be honoured in the full experience of life. Over the years, the Serets’ original vision has been continually developed with meticulous attention to excellent service, cuisine, and comfort as the Inn has grown into newly acquired properties on its historic street. They continually enhance the hotel’s visual experience, updating design elements and collection pieces throughout.

The unique atmosphere of The Inn of the Five Graces reflects the Serets’ many years of life and work with artisans in Afghanistan and Central Asia, beginning in 1968. For over forty years they have worked in the design world, developing their signature East-Meets-West style. They maintain close relationships with artisans far and near to create the one-of-a-kind collection showcased at their store, Seret & Sons. The Serets’ distinctive style is internationally renowned for their creative style, combining local southwestern design with an extraordinary collection of antique furniture, textiles, carpets, and architectural elements from countries along the Silk Road.
The Inn’s exquisite furnishings come from Seret and Sons’ extensive showrooms, whose aesthetic has been instrumental in making Santa Fe an inspiration for cosmopolitan interiors that revel in colour, celebrate culture, and provide a feast for the five senses.
Whether you want to celebrate, relax or discover the South-west, the unique amenities include the round-the-clock concierge staff available to assist with all your plans, day or night. The Inn’s secluded stone courtyards with their soothing fountains and lush, flowering foliage invite you to linger, creating the perfect beginning or conclusion to your daily Santa Fe adventures. The serene, Tibetan inspired spa will transport and refresh you. Even the fitness area with its distinctive, colourful décor and excellent equipment will motivate you to do a bit of high altitude training.
The Inn of the Five Graces offers the perfect location for any need or desire, from intimate getaways to business meetings to fabulous weddings and celebrations.
