Luxury bespoke holidays to Shanti Maurice, Mauritius

Situated between the lush mountains of Mauritius and the Indian Ocean, Shanti Maurice has evolved from the highly acclaimed Ananda in the Himalayas into a boutique lifestyle resort with an award-winning spa. The resort is located in the south of Mauritius by the sea at St. Felix, spread over 36 acres of tropical gardens circled by gracefully wooded hills with breathtaking views of the mountains and the Indian Ocean. The accommodation is in 61 suites and villas, which are luxuriously fitted out and make good use of local wood and traditional materials to blend in with the lush surroundings. All rooms overlook the sea and are well positioned for privacy. Shanti Maurice offers extensive dining options, with an emphasis on locally-sourced fresh fare. The resort's new signature restaurant, Stars, is defined by its contemporary Cape cuisine and wide selection of South African wines. Pebbles restaurant offers an international menu that is influenced by the flavours of India, while the resort's rustic beachside Fish and Rhum Shack celebrates the bounty of the surrounding seas, complemented by cocktails using rum from the local distillery. There is no shortage of leisure options here. The Nira Spa is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the Indian Ocean. Trained masseurs and spa therapists work alongside nutritionists, personal trainers and Ayurvedic Doctors to encourage optimum health and mental well-being.

About Mauritius

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Mauritius gives travellers a true experience of paradise. Mauritius is a luxury holiday destination par excellence, with a superb concentration of outstanding hotels offering the highest possible standards of comfort and service. The island of Mauritius is very attractive with a lush, green interior and sugar cane fields alongside jagged mountain peaks. Along the coastline there are miles of soft white sand beaches lapped by calm, translucent, turquoise water, protected by a reef almost entirely around the whole island. The beaches of Mauritius are often the highlight of a luxury holiday here, fringed by casuarinas or coconut palms which sway against the deep blue of the sky and the turquoise of the sea. Poinsettia and bougainvillaea line the roads and hug the buildings. It is the people of Mauritius that make this island so very special and unique, living in a harmony that welcomes and pleases visitors. There is a fascinating mix of Indian, African, Chinese and European with religions being Hindu and Islam, Buddhist and Christian. This attractive mix of flavours is apparent in the local architecture and cuisine which makes a rich use of the local fruits and spices. Mauritius is a paradise of sea and sand with charming people, offering a perfect luxury holiday destination.

Highlights of Mauritius

Sega dancing. Maha Shivaratri festival. Paul et Virginie by Bernardin de St Pierre a love story based on the incidents during the wreck of the St Geran. Chicken and prawn curry and Creole dishes using the local spices. Heart of palm is a local delicacy. Local beer is Phoenix Pilsner and local rum is Green Island. Serious deep-sea fishing with some of the world's top fishing off Le Morne where blue marlin is caught. Walking along the defunct railway lines of Mauritius or hiking in the Domaine du Chasseur. Clothes, stamps, model ships and basket work are all things to buy.
