Santa Fe

Santa Fe | The Inn of The Five Graces

August 08, 2023

Today we’re making our way to one of my favorite cities in the US, Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s a magical place that inspires creativity, slowing down, and taking a breath. 

Joining me to chat all things Santa Fe are brothers Isaiah and Sharif Seret. The Seret family founded, owns, and runs The Inn of the Five Graces, often thought of as one of the best hotels in America. The Inn is so special and boutique, and the service so bespoke that it’s almost hard to refer to it as a hotel. 

The brothers and I chat about the different eras in Santa Fe’s history, how a bohemian art scene set down roots here in the 60s and 70s, and about their fascinating family history that took them from New York, to pre-revolution era Afghanistan, to finding their true home in the high desert of New Mexico.
