Shanti-Som Wellbeing Retreat

Shanti-Som Wellbeing Retreat

Spain, Europe

Leave the stress of modern life behind and regain a sense of equilibrium at this sanctuary of tranquillity in Andalucia. Bringing the knowledge and feel of an Asian spa resort to southern Spain, Shanti-Som Wellness has an intimate, friendly feel with only 14 rooms ensuring each and every guest gets the care and attention that they need.

It has been carefully constructed, respecting and incorporating local materials as well as following the guidelines of Feng-Shui.  With thatched roofs, marble floors and natural Iroko wood structuring, you certainly won’t feel like you’re in Spain. Water fountains are abundant, accompanied by little nestling Buddha’s in every corner. With an ecologically friendly mantra and understated yet elegant ambience, rooms embrace a simple décor with hand painted images of blossom trees and beautiful beamed ceilings.

Fitness and weight-loss certainly have to be the strongpoints of Shanti-Som, with a variety of different classes and sessions on offer in the likes of yoga, Pilates and personal training ensuring that people of all abilities are catered to. The spa is equally fantastic, and there’s an excellent range of treatments on offer from traditional pampering to holistic healing. Your wellness is of the upmost priority at Shanti-Som, and a stay here is sure to be a rewarding experience.
