Restorative Mountain Retreat – Shanti-Som, Marbella
Dates and Location
About The Retreat
Would you benefit from feeling like you’ve been on an Indonesian break, less than three hours from London surrounded by tranquil gardens, a glittering pool and a stunning mountain backdrop? How about trying yoga; waking up your senses with a morning mountain hike; eating delicious healthy food; soaking up the sun and most importantly, only needing to think about yourself for a change in the company of women seeking some ‘me’ time just like you?
If this sounds like what you need, then read on…
Shanti-Som is a wonderful hidden gem, only 40 minutes from Malaga Airport, nestling amongst the fragrant pine and olive trees in the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park in Southern Spain. The style throughout this luxurious retreat is eclectic, with Parisian sofas perfect for lounging on sitting alongside Moroccan candleholders and oversized paintings of Buddhist monks by local artist Alejandro Hermann, which are enchanting. The yoga pavilion has a wonderful vista of the mountain and the spa offers everything from gentle healing massages to energizing coffee body scrubs. You can also dip in and out of what’s on offer as much or as little as you like, there’s absolutely no obligation to take part in everything, although I do believe you really will get the most out of it if you do.

What’s the Cost?
3 nights at £660pp based on 2 ladies sharing an en-suite twin room and £860 for single occupancy en-suite room. Please note, if you book a ‘sharing room’ you will need to find someone to share with you, this is also a lovely way to spend time with a good friend; sister or maybe your mum. Or if you’d prefer some peace and privacy during your stay, then taking a ‘single occupancy’ room is also a great option.
How Can I Secure My Place?
In order to book your place on this retreat, I will require a deposit of £150.00pp which is non refundable and can be paid online. I will email you to confirm your place along with confirmation of when the balance is due. Also if you’d like to send payments in installments to keep this retreat viable for you, that’s also fine, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please ensure you have your own travel insurance for this retreat.
If this doesn’t sound quite right, or you’d like to host something like this for a group of friends or maybe for your family, feel free to email me email@example.com and we can discuss some ideas and work on something together.
