Shanti Maurice is an elegant, luxury resort and spa on the south coast of Mauritius. Located away from the island’s madding crowds, this beautiful, idyllic resort is wrapped in 36 acres of landscaped garden and tropical parkland, providing the perfect setting for anyone seeking somewhere to relax and unwind.
Everything at Shanti Maurice is geared to the wellbeing of the guest – from the spacious villas and suites, all of which face the ocean and many of which have private pools, to the comprehensive spa facilities. The villas come in a variety of sizes, housing small families as well as larger groups, with the Shanti Villa being able to accommodate up to 6 adults and 4 children. Many of the villas come with a sophisticated entertainment system, private verandahs and furnished decking. There are also multiple beach villas available to book, including many with secluded beach access and others situated on the beach itself.
The Shanti Maurice spa has excellent facilities, including yoga studios, pilates studios, and a number of meditation rooms. There is also a Watsu pool, a Jacuzzi and an AquaFit swimming pool. The spa also provides a range of treatments, including hydrotherapy, body polishing, and Watsu treatments. The spa specialises in inner body treatments, allowing you to experience holistic therapies, sensory revitalisation therapy and spiritual awakening. The Shanti Maurice spa is the perfect place to go for those visitors who are looking for a particularly luxurious way to spend their holiday.
For more active visitors, Shanti Maurice provides a wide range of activities to keep its guests entertained. There is a full choice of water sports available, including windsurfing, snorkelling and even dolphin watching. Pedalos and kayaks are also available to hire. There are also tennis courts
and a golf course available, which boasts spectacular views. There is also a kid’s club for younger visitors to enjoy during their stay.
As well as this, there is a very wide choice of dining options at the Shanti Maurice. Those looking for an atmospheric, romantic dining experience should consider visiting the Stars restaurant, which provides the ideal setting for couples seeking a more intimate evening. More social restaurants are also available, including the Rum Shed, which uses a barbeque and a wood fired oven to cook traditional Mauritian dishes. Those looking for a more casual dining experience may choose to eat a picnic. The Shanti Maurice’s tropical gardens stretch over 36 acres of land, providing an abundance of ideal picnic spots. Alternatively, Shanti Maurice also provides 24-hour room service, allowing you to eat from the comfort of your own villa. Other dining options at Shanti Maurice include the Fish Shack, La Kaze Mama and the Red Ginger Bar & Pool Lounge. However, regardless of where you choose to dine, you will be served delicious, locally-sourced food.
Sited on the quiet south coast, which is devoid of the developments affecting some areas of the island, this is Mauritius’ only genuine destination spa.
A number of wellbeing programmes can be pre-booked in advance, and if timed right, a stay can coincide with one of the spa gurus and masters who regularly visit.
At Les Petits Dodos Kids Club, the kids are well catered for while the adults relax. Weekly activities ensure that they will always have something to do. The resort also provides qualified babysitters for your infants, toddlers and young adults at an additional fee upon request.
