Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa: refined luxury and well-being in Mauritius

Mauritius will always be our dream. Its immense lagoon, the culture that characterizes the Indian Ocean between vanilla, turmeric, spices, India, Africa and the tropics. This former trading post between Indonesia and Africa continues to attract travelers in search of a change of scenery. The Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa impresses. He has set up his sumptuous villas in the south of the island, right next to Gros Morne. A wild paradise of serenity and calm, set on the beach, it boasts a holistic spa combining ayurveda, yoga, Watsu treatments and acupuncture.

Your villa on the beach and alone in the world

Just a 30-minute drive from Mauritius’s international airport – access can also be arranged by private helicopter from the airport – Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa offers stays in private suites or villas, all facing the lagoon, some with their feet in the water. Surrounded by waterfalls, the lush forests of the Rivière Noire gorges and a crystal-clear lagoon, your hotel will help you unwind while immersing you in the beautiful Mauritian atmosphere. Its reputation in terms of hotels is well established, and here you can enjoy one of the most luxurious resorts in Mauritius.

This hotel is also a great option for a family holiday, as the kids’ club lets you enjoy the hotel’s treatments in total peace and quiet… Isn’t that an essential component of true relaxation?

Rooms and suites that respect the art of tropical living

15 hectares of gardens protect the resort and make you feel truly alone in the world on this lagoon! 61 suites and villas are spread across this magnificent garden.

Choose from suites overlooking the white sandy beach and sea, or villas with up to 3 bedrooms, a swimming pool and private garden.

Suites are up to 72 m² in size. They all feature a king-size bedroom and extra beds for family travel.

The 17 villas are sumptuous, ranging in size from 250 to 1,000 m², each with its own typically Mauritian swimming pool – built in black lava stone – private garden and view of the nearby lagoon. All villas benefit from premium service, including a 24-hour concierge.

Mauritian architecture is reminiscent of Balinese villas in its openness to the outside world, large and airy thanks to the thatched cathedral roof. This indoor-outdoor living environment is absolutely delightful in these temperatures.

World-class ayurveda and yoga

The resort is a true wellness destination thanks to its deep commitment to the practice of ayurveda and yoga.

Ayurveda as a philosophy of life

Ayurveda influences many treatments and therapies. You’ll even find the ayurvedic doshas principle in the hotel’s kitchen, which we’ll talk about a little later.

5 treatment rooms are dedicated to ayurveda . Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa’s expertise enables it to perform massages using these ancestral techniques. More than 15 treatments are exclusively designed according to these principles. Don’t miss the famous massage, in which a trickle of hot oil is continuously drizzled over a precise point on the forehead – a guaranteed stress reliever!

Dr Deepak Uthaman Sobhana is a Panchakarma specialist in ayurveda. He is your Ayurvedic doctor, drawing his knowledge from many years of practice in Kerala. He’s known the power of ayurveda on the body, mind and soul since he was a child. He has accompanied thousands of people in their healing process by working at the source of the problem…and he’s the one who accompanies you during your stay at the resort!

During your stay, you’ll benefit from pre- and post-cure recommendations to optimize the results of on-site treatments.

Experience transformation through yoga

You’ll be welcomed to the spa by Dr. Pragya Mishra. A doctor of holistic healing and yoga priestess, Pragya M ishra will guide you in your yoga practice, from Hatha yoga to Kundalini, Mantra or Nada Yoga, among others. These different types of yoga are practiced every day, all year round. Yoga is an integral part of the wellness process at Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa. You could make your destination a 100% yoga holiday and return home transformed only by the soothing, liberating and balancing powers of yoga. Pragya Mishra is also trained in Ayurvedic medicine to make your treatment a truly holistic journey.

A superb 7,500 m² spa

The yoga rooms are designed with a special yoga floor. The spa also features meditation rooms and a Pilates studio to awaken the body’s power and mobility. The jacuzzi and several pools, including the Watsu pool for hydrotherapy treatments and the Aquafit pool, are exclusive to the spa.

Hydrotherapy is one of the treatments and techniques to be highlighted here. Treatments performed in contact with hot water are renowned for relaxing, facilitating difficult movements and, above all, letting go. Let yourself be pampered by the resort’s wellness experts and therapists.

25 treatment rooms make up one of the largest and most complete spas in the Indian Ocean. Qualified masseurs and therapists work alongside private coaches and the resort’s Ayurvedic doctor.

Shanti Spa aims to offer its customers a total immersion in the discovery of a more balanced lifestyle, the key to longevity. It is through the integration of yoga, meditation, fitness, pilates and holistic therapy that the wellness approach is truly complete and holistic: balancing body, mind and soul.
