At the southern tip of Mauritius, the commune of Souillac watches over the wild, intact nature and attempts to preserve the beauty of the area’s landscapes that account for the reputation of the island. Far from the hustle and bustle of the northern coast, the deep southern region possesses vast expanses of forest barely marked by human presence, except for a few small villages with picturesque names among the fields of sugar cane. The inhabitants here have conserved their art de vivre and their traditions such as harvesting the tea manually by women wearing saris. Time seems to have stood still here. The southern region is very popular with discerning tourists and offers a number of activities including the Vanilla Park and the Rochester Falls located very near Souillac, both unforgettable attractions.
In the wild and authentic southern part of Mauritius, the Nira Resorts group has created the Shanti Maurice on the banks of the Indian Ocean, with 61 villas spread over 14 hectares of tropical land, far from the crowds, the noise and curious eyes. It’s the ideal spot for a retreat and one that accentuates well-being. Entirely dedicated to the health of both body and mind, the hotel, inspired by Indian ashrams, offers a variety of total care treatments based on the needs of each individual guest. Thalasso or seawater therapy, aromatherapy, ayurvedic medicine, yoga, classes and meditation sessions are among the treatments dispensed by a team of thirty therapists. The goals are finding serenity and peace of mind, listening to one’s inner self and the appreciation of beauty and the surrounding nature.
An important part of the program is the cuisine, and the hotel places the accent on natural and organic products, used by Austrian Chef, Wilbald Reinbacher to prepare Indian, European and African dishes.
The Shanti Maurice is the ideal place to recharge one’s batteries and to discover the beauty of southern Mauritius. In the words of the Shanti’s director, “You come as a resident, and you leave as a friend and you return as a member of the family.”
Instead of attracting visitors for the spa alone, we want to be a family destination, which is why we have a Kids’ Club under the supervision of specialists who provide a wide variety of activities.” Paul Van Frank, Director of the Shanti Maurice.
