Shanti is owner operated, a simple spa retreat, a cold water pool sheltered from wind with a small kitchen and several rooms for yoga and massages. It is clean and simple. I relaxed by the pool and swam while my wife did yoga with the owner and then had a massage. We didn't do food but other reviews say it... More

It was wonderful doing yoga with Margaret, and Lee was kind enough to leave me sections of the NY Times. I look forward to seeing them again the next time they're in SMA. Brett More

I was in need of yoga and a massage. Brett, the owner, was happy to arrange that for me as well as pick me up at Mega in San Miguel de Allende. I had a one-on-one session with her- mostly stretches, a low key yoga session for one hour. Then Amelia came and gave me an excellent massage. After all... More

While staying in San Miguel de Allende I chanced upon an advertisement for cooking Mexican Historic Cuisine. I e-mailed the teacher and got a very prompt response. I did not know at the time but to get into a class of MARILAU'S it is best to make a reservation well in advance. Because I was a single I fit into... More

There is a place, outside of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, where the silence is profound and the countryside mesmerizing: Shanti San Miguel. Brett Knobel’s love of India and yoga inspired this oasis of serenity. Built around a pool with many comfortable chaises-longue, one is drawn immediately into the calm. An exquisite garden at one end and huge entrance... More

During my recent visit, I had a massage, facial, manicure and pedicure. Brett picked up my husband and I near our location in San Miguel. I can't say enough about the wonderful massage and facial by Lupita. Coming from the many SPA's around Santa Fe, NM the massage and price outrank any in Santa Fe. Shanti's prices are far less...

Four of us went for the afternoon to Brett's dreamy Indian-themed oasis in the middle of the San Miguel semi-desert. We didn't even have any spa treatments but we didn't need them: We relaxed, ate, drank, and talked in the sun or shade, as each of us liked, next to the pristine pool under that desert-blue sky. We truly enjoyed... More

Our day at Shanti couldn't have been a nicer experience. We were picked up at the Mega supermarket by a very friendly staff member and taken to the property about 10 minutes outside of town.
