Shanti-Som Mediterranean Spa & Well-being Retreat

In Commercial, Projectsby Karlin van der Vyver

Drawing inspiration from the ancient traditions and tropical spa rituals of the East, Shanti-Som Holistic & Wellbeing Retreat in Spain takes centuries of eastern wisdom and uses these teachings to counterbalance the stress of modern life and the tell-tale signs that it leaves behind.

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 from a complete range of therapies for Mind, Body and Soul tailored to suit your needs.

Following the philosophy of East meets West, all 14 rooms have been individually designed with attention to detail including marble luxury bathrooms, fine linens, flat screen TV and stylish furnishings and accessories including bath amenities, bath robes, slippers, hair dryer, safe deposit box, air-conditioning, heating.

It took them just 16 weeks to complete the project, thatching a total roof area of 721m², whilst installing 53 running meters of timber balustrades as well as 134m² of timber decking.

This required a staggering  46,858 bundles of cape reed thatch and more than 50m² of timber poles, filling a total of four 40 ft. containers!

The careful blend of nature and technology, coupled with years of experience and know-how, makes Shanti-Som the ideal place for those who want to break away, recharge, relax and regain their energy, whilst at the same time learning and experiencing how to get in perfect harmony with mother nature.
