Depending on your body statistics, lifestyle and age, what you need to eat to lose weight differs. That is why our program is personalized from the very start with a phone consultation with one of our team to create a program matched to your exact needs. Using fresh ingredients and the perfect balance of protein, carbohydrates and essential fats, our weight loss menus offer a more natural approach that works with your body, not against it. This means that cravings for unhealthy sugars and fats naturally subside and stubborn weight can finally shift. Unlike the feeling of being “starved” by calorie-counted yet nutritionally deficient weight loss programs, you will feel energized and nourished. Which is just as well, as at Shanti-Som you have the added benefit of just the right amount of exercise with daily hikes and five inclusive sessions with a personal trainer to leave you feeling invigorated and fitter!
Any holiday combination can be accommodated at this hotel; be it a short break or extensive stay, with or without a specific programme, or simply a more luxurious room. Our specialist team has the knowledge and first hand experience to be able to properly advise on your hotel choice. Call us with any queries on 020 573 03 50. We'd be delighted to put together an offer around your requirements.
