Marbella - Shanti-Som Wellbeing Retreat
LOCATION: The Shanti-Som Wellbeing Retreat is located 60 km and 45 min from Malaga Airport.
Picture a place within a few hours flying time of Europe’s major cities that combines the serenity of the Far East with the stunning natural beauty of southern Spain.
Shanti Som Wellbeing Retreat - opened in May 2011 - is nestled in the midst of nature surrounded by the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park and Biosphere reserve and has been carefully constructed respecting and incorporating local materials as well as following the guidelines of Feng Shui. Shanti Som has created an Eastern style by combining elements of Balinese architecture and Oriental gardens.
At Shanti Som you can come for a Yoga, Detox or Weight Loss retreat, but next to that an additional aim is to allow you time for personal reflection, self understanding and your ongoing personal development. Shanti Som offers lifestyle solutions that will leave guests renewed and re-inspired and where you can have the opportunity to learn more about the positive effects of a more balanced lifestyle. This is a place where you will regain your energy and where you will learn how to get in balance and focused.
Shanti-Som’s team of professionals are dedicated, passionate and caring individuals whose purpose in life is to serve and help people learn from the best tools available to live a happy, healthy and balanced life.
The retreat has been built from ecological materials; wooden ceilings, South African thatched roofs, Iroko wood and beautiful marble floors. The interiors of the 14 rooms are all tastefully decorated in a beautiful fusion of eastern and western designs, fabrics and finishes that create an ambience of understated luxury.
From the moment you arrive the retreat provides ample space to either relax in the rooms, courtyard or terraces or to simply soak up the sun by the pool. There is a sense of peace and serenity accompanied by the sound of water, in the streams, waterfalls and fountains of the retreat’s Oriental gardens. Surrounded by pine, almond, lemon and olive trees, 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 Cuisine reflects their philosophy of healthy living and the celebration of different cultures, featuring fresh and healthy dishes with enough sumptuous twist to satisfy the most discerning gourmet palates. It all begins with ingredients – fresh, healthy and nutrient-rich, because you can’t take energy from food which has none to give. Fresh herbs and spices are used generously to add flavour and enhance the medicinal value, and foods are served close to their natural state, with healthy cooking methods and no microwaves, processed foods or additives.
The Spa at Shanti Som is small, but with its Sauna, Hamam, 4 treatment rooms, indoor yoga room and gym it serves as a good support to the retreats.
First of all my special thanks for your efforts. I had a fabulous time at Shanti Som and the hospitality and efforts of the staff is fantastic! You really organised this last-minute holiday very well!! I judge the Hotel, the yoga program and the service with a 9.

It was all good! It was very relaxing and my daughter enjoyed it as well.
I did effectively spend a wonderful week at Shanti Som Wellbeing retreat hotel. I hope I will have the opportunity to meet again with all staff of Shanti Som. More than professional, the staff is simply wonderful! Special thanks to Mourad the time I have spend with him during Yoga classes. It was a great week. It allowed me to distress and to be able to concentrate again.
It was GREAT!!!!! What a beautiful place and surrounding! Very friendly staff, perfect food, rooms well maintained and clean! We enjoyed the massage and even booked some extra treatments with Nikki. She is very good!

I can look back at a lovely holiday! The hikes were very nice. Joanna, the guide, is a lovely lady and very entertaining. The hikes were a little bit shorter than expected (around 2 hours) but I enjoyed them a lot. I even fell in love a little bit with the landscape!
Shanti Som is an amazing place. The staff is warm and welcoming and does everything to make you feel happy and at home. Also the Yoga and massages are very good!
I am not sure If I would suggest somebody to go there for 2 weeks, because the location is quit isolated, it is only small and therefor you would have to be able to enjoy yourself. Also because the menu is rather small and the menu for lunch and dinner is the same. This means if you are there for 2 weeks you will eat everything twice. But it definitely is a great place to get back to yourself and take a good rest. If that is what people are looking for then a 2 week stay would be good.
I am definitely planning to return to Shanti Som for a few days. Thank you again for all your help and until a next time!

It has been a lovely stay and the yoga classes were great! The hotel is beautiful, the food delicious and the surroundings stunning! The only disadvantage was that the room only has a fan and not air conditioning, but except for that it was perfect!
Thanks for everything: I am a very happy customer and surely will try to return to Shanti Som next year.
Great place to recharge your batteries.

I spend such a wonderful and peaceful time in Shanti Som. I returned really happy, with a lot of new experience and happiness back to Zürich. I found a wonderful balance and could find my way to myself. Thank you so much for helping me :-)
I achieved what I wanted to in terms of weight loss and health. It was stress free, calming and a haven!!

I had a great time! Your assistance was very personal and involved. I would definitely book again. What was a pity, but something they could not do anything about was the fact that it was very quiet when I was there....
They did everything they could to give me the best experience. The private yoga classes were super. In the morning done by Petra; a very experienced warm lady and in the evening by Nathalie a very soft and sweet teacher. The combination was perfect. I also had some treatments in the Spa among which foot reflexology by Halila. What a lovely and good experience that was. The menu they set up for me was light and very tasteful. A perfect combination of different fusion kind dishes.
Anyone who wants to take some time of to relax, go outdoors for lovely walks in the mountains or those who want to put extra time into yoga or just want to slow down will have a perfect stay at Shanti Som. It is the perfect mix of luxury, asian atmosphere, service and relaxation.
The retreat has a great garden, lovely rooms, an outdoor yoga studio and an indoor studio, small fitness, SPA, a lovely pool and nice restaurant, terrace and great lounge
