Your Destination —
Shanti Maurice Hotel is located in the south coast of Mauritius at St. Felix and is approximately 25 miles south-east of Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, which is situated at Plaisance.
On the beautiful south coast of Mauritius, Shanti Maurice Mauritius 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 the resort only offer non-motorised water sports, such as windsurfing, sailing, pedal boats, snorkelling and kayaking.
Whether you are interested in dolphin watching to kayaking, cultural activities, outdoor pursuits, water sports or relaxing in gorgeous surroundings with a picnic, the hotel is more than happy to prepare a tailor-made programme to suit your specific needs.

Serving the finest, freshest Cape food, shines at night. With exquisite, perfectly prepared dishes and a setting offering views over a starlit Indian Ocean, the restaurant turns dinner into a memorable occasion. This is the place to lose track of time as the hours slip by as you savour your favourite wine. The culinary influences are South African, but the ingredients are primarily local.
In a relaxed setting open to ocean views and gentle breezes, Pebbles Restaurant offers a variety of flavours, reflecting the rich diversity of Mauritian history and culture. The food equally has tasteful influences from Europe, Africa and India, spiced-up by the flavours of China and the Middle East. Starting with breakfast offering pastries baked in its own kitchen and freshly picked fruits the day's dishes blend local ingredients with international flavours and cooking customs.
Situated on the beach overlooking the natural high waves from the ocean, the Fish and Rhum Shack features a very rustic setting capturing the essence of the traditional fishermen's gathering for their meal after collecting their daily catches in the evening. Join the Fish and Rhum Shack for live charcoal grills, where the chef prepares for you fresh seafood whilst you enjoy the classic rum based cocktails.

The chefs can create wholesome meals ranging from simple salads to fresh fish and game. A salad of sautéed shrimps, avocado, papaya, mango, hearts of palm, pear tomatoes, almonds and sweet and sour vinaigrette, accompanied by a bottle of cold Chablis, is typical picnic fare.
Optimum health and positive dietary change is promoted through the extensive wellness cuisine menu. Healthier, lighter dishes are prepared using fresh and organically-grown vegetables, herbs, fruits, free-range meat and poultry, and ocean-fresh fish. Cooking methods are chosen to increase the intake of vitamins and minerals, and to reduce the fat, cholesterol and calorie content.
La Kaze Mama

Combining two of the hotel‟s most popular dining experiences; Grandma's Kitchen and the Herb Garden BBQ, enabling guests to taste truly authentic Mauritian home cooking in a memorable outdoor setting.
Known as the social hubs of the Island, Rum Shops are the places to go to and share a laugh, a story and a drink. Step up to the counter and order some gateau piment, samosas or dholl-puri. Add a little of the local green chilli sauce, rum cocktail or a beer then join in, what is sure to be a lively conversation about a number of things – sports, politics, world affairs or nothing in particular. You will be well on your way to enjoying a true Mauritian experience.
Alongside the lush landscape gardens of Shanti Maurice lies a bountiful herb and vegetable garden, providing the Chef with fresh and organic ingredients for the day's dishes.
The garden plays home to over thirty varieties of herbs and vegetables, and depending on the season, citronelle, persil, romarin, basil, mint, and coriander are grown, along with vegetables such as beetroot, aubergine, broccoli and onion.
