Shanti Maurice is a magical resort set on the south coast with lush tropical gardens providing a beautiful backdrop. Water features, lawns and a small indigenous forest filled with exotic birds make this place truly special. The stunning white sand beach can be viewed from all suites and villas. Coral reefs circle the sand and clusters of black volcanic rock create pools as the tide goes out. The beach is always tranquil, since only non-motorised water sports, such as windsurfing, sailing, pedal boats, snorkelling and kayaking are on offer. Activities such as waterskiing, fishing and scuba diving can be arranged further afield.
The 61 spacious suites and villas at Shanti Maurice are all ocean facing and are among the most generously proportioned in Mauritius. The villas all have private pools and are surrounded by exotic private gardens, terraces and courtyards. The culinary experience at Shanti Maurice is an unforgettable mix of local and international cuisine. Fresh from the ocean, the garden or nearby farms, the chefs offer local produce and imaginative choices. Cape-inspired dining at the Fish Shack, or simple, healthy fare from the wellness cuisine menu, there is something to inspire every palate. Dining at Shanti is generally a more relaxed affair than other Mauritian resorts, making it particularly suitable for families.
Whilst the adults are relaxing, the children are guaranteed a fantastic holiday. Shanti Maurice and Scott Dunn have collaborated in creating the first Explorers kids club
in Mauritius, set in 2000sqm of its own grounds beside the Shanti Spa. Facilities here include a splash pool, games room (including snooker, table football and tennis). The Explorers childcare team organise a huge array of exciting activities for different age groups, ensuring your little ones are raring to go to the Explorers club each day.
Personal tours of the Herb Garden can be taken and picnics can be arranged in the beautiful gardens. Activities include yoga, meditation, nature walks and treks, deep-sea fishing, tennis, cooking classes and golf, which is available at the nearby Avalon Golf Estate. For those who prefer to relax, the Shanti Spa is an absolute must offering an extensive menu of body and beauty treatments. The spa therapists work with nutritionists, personal trainers, yoga masters and Ayurvedic physicians to encourage optimum health, mental well-being, revitalised senses, positive dietary changes and spiritual awakening.
