The food is delicious, nutritious and healthy; the spa offers an excellent array of treatments and therapies; the yoga pavilion is a triumph; the hillside heate pool is a tranquil oasis and the bedrooms are supremely comfortable, and all with stunning en suite shower rooms.

The ethos at Shanti Som is that bedrooms are designed for rest and relaxation. With this in mind, guests can expect a quiet stroll from the main lobby to reach their bedroom. Inside each room you’ll find comfy beds and your own robe to relax in- we’d recommend enjoying your complimentary herbal tea out on your private balcony or terrace as the perfect start to your day!
The ensuite bathrooms offer lovely complimentary toiletries and large rainfall showers.
When you wake in the mornings we invite everyone to enjoy tea and fruit as a healthy way to start the day. A delicious brunch will follow after the morning yoga session and you can also purchase fresh juices from the bar.
In the afternoon the group will meet for tea and snacks which often include crudities and energy balls.
For the evening meal guests have a choice between a tasty vegetarian or meat and fish dish. Whichever you choose, you can expect a variety of flavours inspired by western and Asian cuisine.
