It’s difficult to picture a scene more perfect than that of the spectacular Shanti Maurice resort, on the south coast of the diverse island of Mauritius. Nestled between sugarcane fields and the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean Shanti Maurice is a luxurious resort flanked with pristine white sands, a sublime spa, spacious accommodation and restaurants brimming with fresh ideas. It is a place for families and couples to relax, unwind and de-stress.
On excitedly checking into one of the beautiful, modern rooms with immaculate furnishings you can’t help but gaze out at the unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean. The rooms are clean and bright with massive comfy beds and stunning bathrooms. They are designed to let the outside in and the wonderful scenery melts into every detail.
The hotel takes care of everything, so you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings. If you are feeling in need of a little more Zen, how about a yoga class or some Pilates at the spa? For the more adventurous guest there are sailing and snorkelling activities.
Once you get over the shock of the scenery and start to wonder about lunch, a visit to the Red Ginger Lounge was just want the doctor ordered. Its extensive menu of tropical rum punches and exotic juices was the perfect aperitif before delving into the renowned Executive Chef Willibald Reinbachers’ amazing menus, which showcase local cuisine and ingredients of Mauritius; including the latest herb garden BBQ menu of yellow fin tuna, ombrine in banana leaf, lobster and lime achar to decadent charcoal fruit fondue’s with lollipops of baked alaska. Need we say more?
As well as this, Shanti Maurice Mauritius has upped the anti with the food offering, taking guests for a “traditional” dining experience to dine with a local family and indulge in some unbelievable home cooking.
