Shanti Som is a delightful and very luxurious slice of south east Asia in the hills 20 minutes north of Marbella. It sounds bizarre, but works beautifully. Why fly long haul to Asia when you can nip down to sunny southern Spain instead?
Once you step through the doors of this boutique 14 bedroom residence, you enter another world. Its stylish and elegant design, high beamed ceilings, thatched roof-tops, tinkling water and liberal sprinkling of giant Buddhas all create the sense of being on another continent. It's delightfully welcoming and instantly calming. The perfect haven for a New Year yoga retreat, allowing you to return refreshed and energised and ready to face the world with a smile.
Tucked away in a shallow valley, surrounded by rolling hills and open countryside, Shanti Som lets you escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and immerse yourself in all things healthy and peaceful. The food is delicious, nutritious and healthy; the spa offers an excellent array of treatments and therapies; the yoga pavillion is a triumph; the hillside pool is a tranquil oasis and the bedrooms are supremely comfortable, and all with stunning en suite shower rooms.
On all our destination yoga holidays here, there will be morning and evening classes every day. Between classes you can walk in the countryside, relax by the pool, treat yourself to a massage in the spa, or enjoy a session in the steam room or sauna.
Option 1: When we fly out our own yoga teacher and the holiday is therefore on fixed dates, prices include accommodation, brunch and dinner every day, all yoga classes, and free use of the sauna, steam room and pool (not heated).
Option 2: For the 'Any Dates' option (which can be for any number of nights on any dates that suit you - subject to availability), price includes accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, twice daily yoga classes, and free use of the sauna, steam room and pool (not heated). The yoga teacher will be one of Shanti Som's resident teachers.
