About This Center

Walk into a world of complete sensory heaven here in the southern part of Spain, where time is left at the door and a new journey begins. 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 outdoor pool. Choose between our choice of retreats. This unique retreat has 15 individually decorated bedrooms, a restaurant with an asian style patio, a treatment area with 4 treatment rooms, Sauna and Steam Room, Outdoor Yoga Pavillion and Indoor Yoga Shala, Gym and a Pool. The Shanti Som is nestled in the mountain area of the natural park "Sierra de la Nieves" and although it seems far away from everything it is only 10 Minutes away from Marbella.

I really loved my week at Shanti Som – in fact, I’m not sure I can recall a holiday that I enjoyed more!
