Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This place is truly amazing and apart from the location, cleanliness, facilities and amenities, the staff are what make it so so special! They are caring and kind and warm and professional, they deliver a unique wellbeing experience! Shanti Som is small with only 15 rooms but that is what makes it extra special, it is just like staying with family. I can't wait to go back.

Tranquil and a beautiful location
Awesome sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of life. Rooms were small, but balcony views were great. Expensive Spa treatments, but worth it. The main bad experience was a guy mowing the lawn in the middle of the afternoon nearby the main Pool when we and other guests were trying to relax! It was so bad that it became comical! :)

Ideal quiet retreat in a lovely setting
Overnight relaxing stay away. The hotel is VERY quiet so ideal for getting away to relax but not if you want any buzz.

4/5 Good

Great retreat if you want to get away from it all
Had high hopes for this hotel but found it to be a wellness retreat and not a hotel as described on website. Despite advertising that it had a spa we found this to be untrue what materialised was an outdoor pool (unheated), a sauna and a steam room which was out of action during our stay. Rather disappointed considering the cost of the room, also as we stayed towards the end of November and found the Lounge / Restaurant to be very poorly heated. Mealtimes we found to be very late, 09.30 breakfast, lunch from 13.30 and evening meal from 19.30 onwards. All in all a lovely place but certainly not what we were looking for.
