What We Love

  • Daily breakfast and a three-course dinner (excluding drinks) are included in the Jetsetter rate
  • The Nira Spa – about as authentic an Ayurvedic experience as you’ll find outside India
  • Eating giant Mozambique prawns from the BBQ on the beach
  • Expansive, chic suites and villas
  • The laid back yet professional attitude of the staff — nothing is too much trouble
  • Utterly unpretentious, it has its fair share of celebs but no one takes much notice

What To Know

  • As romantic as it is, Shanti Maurice is also perfect for families, with plenty of private space, a kids club and even a pop-up spa for children during the holidays
  • 40 minutes from the airport on the quiet south of the island, this is more remote than other Mauritian resorts
  • Request a ground floor suite with beach access to step straight out onto the icing sugar sand
  • The resort is too remote to explore the island on foot, but hiring a car is not expensive and is worth doing for at least a day to explore the verdant interior

Overview

The Review

It began life as an Ayurvedic spa retreat, but, thank goodness, Shanti Maurice has reconsidered its offering. Now, although the spa is still superlative, the resort – with its bold, clean design and emphasis on the natural surroundings – takes center stage.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2573/prop-51740-1332872903-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Catching the sunset from the beach is an unforgettable experience.”}Spread amongst lush tropical gardens, 61 suites and villas overlook a Robinson Crusoe-worthy swathe of sand and the Indian Ocean. Some villas have private swimming pools, others outdoor showers, but all are vast, with boat-sized hardwood beds floating on a sea of marble. Even in the suites, immense bathrooms feature deep luxurious baths, twin sinks and a dressing area, while oil burners fill the rooms with scent of the spa’s signature Africology products.

It’s just a shame you’ll not spend much time in your suite; because, between the manicured beach, the cool lap pool, maze-like infinity pool and expansive spa, there’s little need to stay inside. Besides, the resort’s philosophy is all about engaging with the island. Besides the superlative service, the almost exclusively local staff know Mauritius inside out, and are happiest when they are helping a guest explore.

Les Petits Dodos kids club offers yoga, guided jungle walks and activities during the Easter and summer holidays, while the Cabana offers child spa treatments at the foot of a badamier tree, leaving the real spa a kid-free zone. Which is a blessing, because with 25 treatment rooms set in tropical jungle, Ayurvedic treatments and organic African oils, it really is a superlative experience.

Back at the resort, join a yoga class at dusk, take in the sunset at the Red Ginger Lounge bar, overlooking the ocean, and revel in the knowledge that the hardest decision you’ll have to make today is where to eat. Signature restaurant, Stars, has a great reputation on the island for its contemporary take on Cape cuisine, washed down by an exhaustive South African wine list. Pebbles has authentic Mauritian dishes and specific “wellness cuisine” for those on spa packages; while beachside barbecue Fish and Rhum Shack serves the morning’s catch with salad from the resort garden. A serving of sand between the toes comes at no extra charge.

My wife and I were interested in "Honeymoon Offer". We sent an email to the hotel that our marriage certificate is written in our language and i asked if it was possible to present the marriage certificate without having to translate it into English. The hotel responded by e-mail and asked in which language, When we wrote our language they didn't answer. Two days later (we still did not receive an answer), we sent the same message from my wife's email- the hotel asked again in which language the marriage certificate was written in. When we wrote the language, the hotel stopped answering.
We tried again (after three days) this time through another e-mail address and we asked the same question but we tell that our marriage certificate is written in a diffrent language - we received a response from the hotel a few hours later " we were invited and they would be happy to host us "

It seems that the hotel does not want to host tourists - just because of its origin

Perfect Wedding
Reviewed 1 week ago

The Shanti Spa Resort is an amazing location directly at the beach. We had our wedding there and it was just perfect. They have very friendly service and everybody is nice. The Weddingplanner from the hotel did a great job and it happened that our favorite Waiter Atish became our wedding-witness. Special thanks goes out to the awesome photographer team Adjesh, Kelvin and Pooja, who captures our happiest moments in unbelievably beautiful pictures and videos. The shooting itself was so much fun with them.
We want to thank everybody from the hotel for making our wedding an unforgettable event.
If u want to marry in paradise that’s the place you are looking for!

wow holiday 샨티모리스!!
