India & The Indian Ocean
Location: Chemin Grenier, Mauritius
Shanti Maurice, a Nira Resort, is positioned between two versions of paradise.
In front of the pristine horseshoe coral sand cove lie the bright blues of the Indian Ocean; behind rise the vivid greens of the sugarcane fields that give Mauritius its unique, tropical flavour. Shanti Maurice makes the most of this untouched, south coast location with a resort that's neither too large to dominate nor too small to be forgotten. Most significantly, the tenor is Mauritian through and through. With 61 rooms and suites and 17 villas with pools, the resort has an intimate feel, allowing every guest the space to connect with the island's
sights, sounds and flavours of its mixed Indian, African, French and Chinese heritage. Guests can swim with dolphins at Tamarind Bay, or spend a leisurely lunch at Le Saint Aubin, a plantation house built in 1819. The extensive Nira Spa at Shanti Maurice - organic, using African botanicals - is built around an enchanting tea pavilion, the relaxing, purposeful treatments perfectly complementing the location as well as the traditional Ayurvedic programmes.
