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.”

When to go

Malaga enjoys wonderful sunny weather. The best time to visit is spring and autumn. It rarely gets cold and the winter months rarely go below 14 degrees.
