Shanti-Som Wellbeing Retreat is an oasis of tranquility and harmony surrounded by the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park in southern Spain just 10 minutes from Marbella. Shanti-Som allows guests to retreat, take stock of their life, relax, detox if needed and de-stress. Surrounded by fragrant orange groves and tropical gardens Shanti-Som really does allow guests to detach from the stresses of the outside world. The Shanti-Som philosopy relies on the ancient traditions and spa rituals of the East and it is a place where you will regain your energy and focus through daily yoga classes, meditation and delicious, healthy cuisine. 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. Shanti-Som is also available for short term stays when you can come and relax for a few days and enjoy the surroundings, play some tennis or golf or any other activity.
