Shanti- Som brings together elements of Balinese architecture and Oriental gardens creating a haven of eastern style within easy reach of the airport.
From the minute you arrive Shanti-Som provides plenty of space to either relax in the rooms, courtyard or terraces or to simply soak up the sun by the pool. The constant sound of water from the streams, fountains and waterfalls is complemented by the fragran smells from the pine trees and orange groves. Shanti-Som is ideal for those who want to combine the peace and quiet of the countryside with a day on the beaches of the Costa de Sol, which are only a few minutes drive away.
