About Shanti Maurice
On one of the best beaches in Mauritius, Shanti Maurice boasts the most elegant and extensive collection of private Villas, the warmest of welcomes and an array of pursuits providing opportunities to do everything or absolutely nothing. All accompanied by sincere service that comes straight from the heart.
On the beautiful south coast, Shanti Maurice has one of the Island's best beaches. With pristine white sand stretching down to the clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, the 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.
Between the still green mountains and the crystal-clear sea, the curved beach is the perfect place to curl up under a parasol with a good book, and a classic cocktail. The beach is always tranquil, since we only offer non-motorized watersports, such as windsurfing, sailing, pedal boats, snorkeling and kayaking.
The 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 pride of the almost exclusively local staff at the resort is evident throughout the Shanti Maurice
experience, manifesting itself in genuinely warm and caring service. The resort's philosophy is built on a desire for guests to use Shanti Maurice as a base from which to experience the very best that the real Mauritius has to offer. Shanti Maurice's genuine wish is that travelers arrive as guests, leave as friends and return as family.
Shanti Maurice is located on the south side of the island.
