Overview

Shanti-Som, in Sierra de Las Nieves Nature Park near Marbella, is an intimate and tranquil Asian-style retreat. It has been carefully constructed, respecting and incorporating local materials as well as following the guidelines of Feng-Shui. With gardens full of waterfalls, streams and fountains, and a stunning mountain backdrop it’s a great place to do some yoga, relax and soak up the sun. The Shanti-Som philosophy draws on the ancient traditions and spa rituals of the East to create a nurturing space where you can reset your system. Mantra is ’’to reward, encourage and educate, but never judge you.”
