Esther Cook, one of our Travel Specialists, shares her experience of the beautiful Shanti Som in Spain.
“I’ve just come back from one of our top selling wellness hotels, Shanti Som in Spain. Being fairly new to wellness travel I needed to go and see why this hotel is so popular for us.
“Only 40 min drive through scenic countryside from Malaga airport, you turn off the road just after picturesque Monda onto an unknown road, where this lovely boutique hotel is hidden away! Gates adorned with buddha statues greet you when you approach the hotel, and rounding the corner you see the front of this beautiful hotel, with a lying buddha in front of it. Nestled in greenery in the mountains it’s a true hidden gem.
“It has only 15 elegantly furnished rooms – 12 standard rooms and 3 junior suites – most of which are surrounding the lovely inner courtyard. While escaping normal life, you can immerse yourself in one of their wellness retreats, such as yoga, Pilates, weight loss, detox or high intensity fitness.
“The food is wonderful, the classes excellent and the staff feel like friends at the end of your stay! You don’t miss being by the sea due to the lovely pool with sun loungers, but for those who do want the beach, you’re only 20 minutes drive from Marbella.
I’ve come back feeling pampered and relaxed, and having made wonderful friends!”
