Shanti Maurice | Golf Package 

Enjoying a family barbecue overlooking the Indian Ocean. Stepping from a secluded villa on to the sandy beach. Finding sanctuary in the spa. Exchanging vows at the overwater Wedding Pavilion. These are Shanti Maurice moments. Here, style is enhanced by sincerity, and living life to the full is more fun after interludes of doing absolutely nothing.

A philosophy to be remembered

Located on the pristine untouched south coast of Mauritius, near the small village of St Felix, Shanti Maurice – A Nira Resort is a member of Design HotelsTM. Renowned for its genuinely warm and caring service, the hotel provides sights, sounds and flavours consisting Indian, African, French and Chinese influences that form the Mauritian culture.

Ideally located between the turquoise Indian Ocean and the vivid greens of sugarcane fields, Shanti Maurice is a 61  luxury all-suite and villa lifestyle resort. Spread across 36-acres of fragrant tropical gardens, 17 Villas and the Shanti Presidential Villa, are located on the beachfront overlooking the ocean. Each have a living area garden, private heated pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor shower and private sala.

Lifestyle

Healthly lifestyle family holidays also take centre stage at Shanti Maurice, where kids are encouraged to eat well, play hard, learn fast and experience every minute of their stay in an adventurous way. Children in chef’s whites, pick and prepare greens from the hotel’s vegetable garden and enjoying eating their culinary creations, whilst Yoga-For-Kids introduces them to yoga’s playful side with easy first poses, team games and lots of laughter. There is also a myriad of land and water sports available. The Les Petits Dodo Kids Club is open 12 hours a day and with its colourful and creative ever-changing activity programme, keeps children from 3 to 12 thoroughly entertained through out their stay.

Culinary Experience

Being aware that many meaningful moments occur at the dining table, resort chefs have a hearty appetite for innovation. Their menus, featuring local and global cuisine, using sustainable produce sourced from local island’s farmers and fishermen, are equally imaginative. Original food offerings include a rustic beachside Fish Shack, celebrating the bounty of the surrounding seas, serving freshly grilled and barbequed ingredients. For entertainment, Sega dancers from the local village delight guests. La Kaze Mama enables guests to taste true authentic Mauritian home-style cooking in a memorable outdoor setting. Built in the style of a traditional rum shop, the “shabbychic” Rum Shed, captures the essence of a bygone era, with tavern-like windows and doors as well as delightfully old-school décor. The bar offers the largest collection of rums in Mauritius, with over 180 types from 36 countries, as well as an impressive selection of rum-based cocktails. Recently launched in Stars Restaurant is ’Aquacasia’ – Culinary Jewels of the Indian Ocean.

Excursions & Tours Available

Inspired by resourceful street traders along with authentic family recipes passed down through countless generations, Aquacasia brings together genuine dishes from the isles of Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Reunion, Indonesia and Western Australia. Guests are encouraged to explore the south of Mauritius, rather than being separated from it.

The resort’s concierge is at hand to arrange a diverse range of off-property excursions, including scuba diving on the reef, helicopter tours, parasailing and dolphin watching at Tamarind Bay. A tour of the Bois Cheri Tea Factory – who have been making tea for over 100 years – is a must, as well as guided walks and private picnics amongst dramatic landscapes. Tennis coaching and an array of 18-hole golf courses are in close proximity to the resort, and special arrangements can be made for guests. Meetings in paradise are possible. An air-conditioned meeting room with complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, and all the conference extras one would expect at a 5-star resort can accommodate up to 100 delegates.

With a philosophy built around creating ‘Meaningful Moments’, be it a thoughtful gesture from a member of staff or a dining experience unlike any other, Shanti Maurice delivers moments that really connect emotionally with guests.
