Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa, Mauritius
Located on the southern tip of the island, Shanti Maurice, embraces guests with the friendliest of service, offering a true paradise spread across a 36 acre landscape of fragrant tropical gardens. A boutique lifestyle resort located around a pristine horseshoe coral sand cove, Shanti Maurice prides itself on providing guests with a truly authentic experience.
The resort’s concierge is at hand to arrange local experiences such as swimming with dolphins at Tamarind Bay, touring the Bois Cheri Tea Factory – which has been making tea for over 100 years – or a leisurely lunch at Le Saint Aubin, a plantation house built in 1819 which has been converted into a restaurant serving classic Mauritian cuisine. Guests are also invited to take part in La Kaze Mama ‘Grandma’s Kitchen’ experience, where they will enjoy a home cooked meal by a local showcasing traditional delicious dishes. Complete with pre-dinner cocktails and a meal around the table, guests are given a book of Grandma’s recipes so that the delicacies can be recreated in their own kitchens back at home.
Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa
The resort consists of 44 spacious Suites and 17 Luxury Villas, each Villa complete with pool. Each spread across 36 acres of fragrant tropical gardens and all over looking the Indian Ocean. Families with up to 2 children can share the spacious Junior Suites however we also recommend the large pool villas for space and privacy for the whole family.
Shanti Maurice focuses on serving locally-sourced fresh fare throughout the resort’s restaurants. In addition to their signature restaurant, Stars, which offers an open-air style from which to enjoy the view of the crystal clear Indian Ocean, the resort also offers a dining experience at the rustic beach-side Fish Shack. Serving fresh lobster, prawns and meats, accompanied by the freshest of salads, guests can enjoy a casual beachside experience. The Rum Shed is a truly Mauritian haunt - a shabby chic rum bar serving cocktails using over 180 types of rum from over 36 countries. Besides the usual bar snacks, Rum Shed now also serves a choice of street food the so called 'comfort food' for a more laid back dining option. For late night cocktails head to Red Ginger Bar & Pool Lounge for a quiet drink overlooking the infinity pool.
For a truly indulgent experience, guests can while away the afternoon in the Shanti Spa, a 75,000 sq. foot oasis surrounded by lily ponds and indigenous flower gardens. Comprising 25 treatments rooms, Shanti Spa is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the Indian Ocean.
