The Hotel

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 short wellness break or for a Yoga, Detox, Pilates 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.

The Rooms

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.

Peace & Serenity

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.

Healthy Living

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.

An absolutely wonderful stay at Shanti Som last week- so lovely to be back there and it was all perfect. All the staff are so helpful and friendly, the yoga and treatments were great, and the food was delicious. We are planning a return trip again next year - longer next time!

We love this

  • The whole atmosphere oozes wellness, relaxation, health - a real holistic vibe!
  • The team is amazing, super friendly and attentive
  • The food is fantastic, whether you are following the detox, weight loss or the normal menu, it all tastes great!

This not so much...

  • No wi-fi available in the bedrooms, only in the communcal areas
  • The location is quite ¨in-the-middle-of-nowhere¨, so if you would like to explore the area or visit Marbella we recommend hiring a car
  • The gym is a little basic

Our tips

  • Natural Marbella - go for a hike up La Concha mountain, you will be hard to find better views of the Costa del Sol, Sierra de las Nieves and on a clear day, all the way across to Gibraltar/North Africa. For the more adventurous, it is also a fantastic spot to watch the sunset. There are also several easier options available from Juanar, like ´the Mirador del Corzo´ (a very simple 500m walk to a viewing point) and ´the Mirador del Macho Montès´. Along the way you can see olive groves, pine trees, berry bushes and walnut trees as well as goats, eagles and owls.
  • Don’t miss the Monday market in Marbella with almost 360 stands and the Saturday market in Puerto Banus where you can find all sorts of things from clothes to fresh fruits and vegetables as well as typical Spanish handicrafts.
  • Visit the town of Málaga – the cathedral, Picasso museum and much more.
