Located in the untouched south of Mauritius, set in a tranquil bay on a curving lagoon of white sand Shanti Maurice is the ideal holiday destination to rejuvenate mind, body and soul. With a choice of many other luxury resorts in Mauritius, I considered myself lucky to have found this gem of a place.
This beautiful resort on the Mauritian south coast spreads across 35 acres of tropical gardens and pristine white sands. Shanti Maurice’s world-class Shanti Spa combines age-old regimes with contemporary international treatments for revitalised senses and spiritual awakening. Experienced therapists help guests take control of their bodies in order to de-stress, detoxify and rebalance, and also offer lectures and classes for a fresh approach to long lasting health. An extensive leisure programme invites guests to pursue activities as diverse as cooking classes, water sports, jogging, yoga and finger painting, among others. Boat tours and excursions farther afield are also easily arranged.
