Shanti Maurice - A Nira Resort - Présentation d'Hôtel

Elégant hôtel doté d’un spa primé, le Shanti Maurice se cache dans une crique de sable corallien sur la côte sud de l’île Maurice, près de Saint Félix, dans une région préservée. Auparavant connu sous le nom de Shanti Ananda, parent avec l’hôtel 'Ananda in the Himalayas', son changement de nom marque le retrait de la marque Ananda et permet d’identifier instantanément ses racines mauriciennes. Bordé par les eaux turquoise de l’océan Indien, et par des champs de canne à sucre d’un vert étincelant, le Shanti Maurice bénéficie d’un cadre enchanteur dans une ambiance qui caractérise une culture mauricienne influencée par l’Inde, l’Afrique, la France et la Chine. Shanti Maurice investit énormément auprès de la communauté locale pour minimiser l’impact des activités de l'établissement sur l’environnement. Ainsi, l’établissement s’approvisionne essentiellement auprès des fermiers et des pêcheurs locaux et soutient l’artisanat local en fournissant à ses hôtes des cabas de plage faits à la main. Mauriciens pour la plupart, les collaborateurs mettent un point d’honneur à présenter leur île sous son meilleur jour.

Particulièrement accueillants, ils sont ravis d’offrir aux hôtes un service attentionné et personnalisé. La philosophie de Shanti Maurice est de faire découvrir le mode de vie mauricien à sa clientèle et de les inciter à créer des liens avec la population locale. Lorsqu’ils reviendront à Maurice, les hôtes seront accueillis comme de véritables membres de la famille. Shanti Maurice compte 61 suites et villas spacieuses, réparties dans un vaste domaine luxuriant qui exhale des senteurs tropicales. Implantées en front de mer, les 17 villas, dont la luxueuse villa présidentielle, offrent une décoration contemporaine s’inspirant des cultures - mauricienne et africaine, disposent d’une piscine privée, d’une douche tropicale en plein air et d’un pavillon. Shanti Maurice accueille les couples et les familles, propose un Kids Club avec programme d’activités (sports nautiques non motorisés, tennis, travaux manuels – peinture sur coquillage, poterie , et chasse au trésor).

Shanti Maurice Location

Set between the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and the vivid greens of the sugarcane fields, Shanti Maurice enjoys the natural beauty of the largely untouched south coast of Mauritius.

Shanti Maurice is close to the peaceful beach of St Felix called Chemin Grenier, which stretches for over 1.5 kilometers from Riviere des Galets to Riambel. There you will feel the serenity and you will indulge into a mood of complete relaxation.

If you wish to discover the contrast to the calm turquoise lagoons that Mauritius is so well known for, visit the island's most southern point - not very far away from Shanti Maurice - known as Gris Gris. In this area there aren't reefs to protect the coast, so the waves strongly crash on the shore creating a marvelous natural effect. Feel the power and vastness of the ocean at Roche qui Pleure (The Weeping Rock) where the waves break directly on the cliffs giving the impression that the cliff is crying.

The Rochester Falls attraction is also nearby Shanti Maurice, and it's definitely worth visiting. The falls tumble from the Savanne River from a height of about 10 m where constant erosion has sculptured the basalt rock into upright columns.

Que faire dans la région de l'hôtel

Golf - Sud

Le Golf du Château, 18 trous de Par 72 de 6,498 m, est situé dans un paysage naturellement vallonné parsemé de lacs et de ruisseaux.

What to Do in the South Equitation Sud

L’équitation est pratiquée depuis bien des années à l’île Maurice.  Le moins que l’on puisse dire, c’est qu’il s’agit d’un sport bien ancré dans les traditions du pays. On en veut pour preuve le fait que l’on y trouve le plus vieil hippodrome de l’hémisphère sud. La passion des courses hippiques est partagée par tous les Mauriciens (ou presque). Et cela, quelque soit leur ethnie ou leur couche sociale… 

Mais l’équitation ne se pratique pas uniquement à l’hippodrome du Champ de Mars. Les centres équestres sont nombreux dans l’île. Et puis, comme les plages sont vastes, vous pourrez en profiter pour y faire des ballades. A cheval, avec les embruns et le clapotis de l’eau en prime, vous pourrez profiter du soleil et des paysages. En journée, les plus sportifs et les plus expérimentés pourront également se baigner en mer avec leur monture ! Voilà des expériences uniques qui ne pourront que vous laisser de bons souvenirs. En soirée profitez du coucher de soleil en vous baladant tranquillement, seul, à deux ou en famille.

What to Do in the South

Les plages ne seront pas vos seuls terrains de jeu. En effet, vous pourrez également profiter de ballades dans des domaines splendides et à la végétation luxuriante. Certains s’étendent même sure plus de 2000 hectares. Sans oublier les centres équestres que l’on retrouve dans diverses localités de l’île.

Sud
Dans le Sud vous pourrez vous rendre au centre équestre de Riambel, près de Pomponette. En plus de ballades sur une des plages les plus sauvages de l’île, de plus de 2,5 kilomètres long, vous pourrez profiter du calme et de l’absence totale d’hôtels, ce qui fait de cette plage un endroit désert…  Chevaux ou poneys, les débutants comme les cavaliers plus confirmés y trouveront leur compte.

Grand Bassin

What to See in the South

Experience the religious and cultural aspects of Mauritius by visiting the very renowned “ Ganga Talao” commonly known as Grand Bassin in the Southern part of Mauritius. Grand Bassin is a crater lake which is about 600m feet above sea level with a depth of between 50 and 55 feet. This place is considered as the most sacred place for the Hindus in Mauritius, as it serves as a pilgrimage site in the name of Lord Shiva (a Hindu deity). Its sanctity is described as having a close connection to the sacred Ganga River in India.

The lake is surrounded by a vibrant lush vegetations and forests encompassed by the incredible temples dedicated for various Hindu pantheon such as Durga, Parvati, Buddha, Ganesh, Saraswati, Vishnu, and so on.

You will likely spot the huge Shiv statue which is of 33 meters, making it the highest statue in Mauritius.

It is recommended to visit the Crater Lake in the month of February or March during the Maha Shivaratree Festival where you will have the chance to experience the religious ambiance, along with vegetarian food, devotional music and songs.

Chamarel-the Seven Coloured Earth

One of the most fascinating spot to discover while visiting Mauritius is the Seven Coloured Earth located in Chamarel. This area has strikingly bare landscape showing well-developed rills and various shades of red, brown, grey, and purple. Engulfed by a large dense forest, the colours of the earth dunes are due to weathering of the basalt and the formation of secondary iron oxides and hydroxides in it, and the rilling is a result of deforestation and sheet erosion. This is due to the human modification of the landscape. Such features also occur in Papua New Guinea, and may be common in tropical, high-rainfall regions with volcanic bedrock. And one fun fact is that if you mix the colored earth together, they'll eventually settle into separate layers.

What to See in the South

The dunes are protected by a wooden fence and visitors are not allowed to climb on them, although they can look at the scenery from observation outposts placed along the fence. Curio shops in the area sell small test-tubes filled up with the coloured earths. On the premises, you will also find a children's playground and some giant tortoises.

Vallée Des Couleurs

La Vallée des Couleurs reserve invites nature lovers to taste the world of the glorious flora and fauna of the Southern part of Mauritius. Amidst a lush green vegetation with green houses, deer park, verdant valleys, endemic trees, wonderful ponds and rivers, not to mention the Seven Coloured Earth-the Vallée des Couleurs is a blissful exploration to rejuvenate your spirit.

Saint Aubin was precisely built in 1819 which was home to several managers of the Saint Aubin sugar estate, and eventually it was renovated in the 90’s to preserve the Mauritian heritage. The estate takes its name from one of its first owners, Pierre de Saint Aubin.

What to See in the South

On Saint Aubin estate, a small manufacturing unit has been rebuilt around the ancient sugar mill chimney which stands as a testimony to the past.

The mill has been turned into a live eco museum where locals and tourists alike can observe all the manufacturing stages of the sugar milling process.

The estate has its own sugar cane plantations which lie along the undulating slopes of southern Mauritius. The fields of Saint Aubin have been under sugar cane cultivation since 1819.

Driven by an enduring quest for uncompromising quality, Saint Aubin plantation has brilliantly met the challenge of reconciling innovation, tradition, human dimension and environmental protection.

A visit to the Saint Aubin House consists of a guided tour around the estate where you will have the privilege to visit the Rum House where high quality rum is made; a visit to the Vanilla House where you will discover the interesting transformation process of the vanilla orchid from the flower to the aromatic pod; a visit to the Anthurium (flowers) greenhouses, and also a leisurely stroll in the tropical garden.

The estate is also composed of an elegant colonial residence, a restaurant offering local Creole cuisine, and the Inn which is a typical traditional Creole house with an iron sheeting roof resting on exposed timber beams, teak wood flooring and ancient furniture. To make it more enticing, the Tea Route which is a gastronomical and cultural tour bears testimony to the different facets of the once colonial Mauritius and its traditional lifestyle.

Bois Chéri

Le Morne Mountain

What to See in the South

The symbolic Le Morne Brabant is a majestic mountain located in the South Western part of Mauritius, on the Le Morne peninsula.

The majestic mountain has been declared as a World Heritage site by the UNESCO since July 6, 2008 to commemorate the Maroonage (runaway slaves) legacy in Mauritius.

It is believed that the slaves were jumping off the cliff of the mountain to commit suicide due to the very inhumane treatment they suffered.

Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island.

It is habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutonania, which is our floral emblem.

The summit of the mountain covers an area of over 12 hectares (30 acres),and is about 556m above the sea level. There are many caves and overhangs on the steep slopes. It is largely surrounded by a lagoon and is a well known tourist attraction.

Do not miss the breath-taking views of the west and south-western side by a hiking trail which approximately lasts for three to four hours.

Rochester Falls

Rochester Falls is one of the spectacular waterfalls of Mauritius situated in the Savanne district of Mauritius. The waterfall forms part of the Savanne River which is at an elevation of 152 meters above sea level, approximately 2.5 km from Souillac (the capital of the Savanne district), and it tumbles from a height of about 10 m (33 ft).

What to See in the South

It is regarded as a popular tourist attraction due to its lava cliffs: years and years of erosion has led to the formation of a spectacular backdrop of rectangular blocks stuck together. The view of the waterfall is just spellbinding which makes it so enticing. The white water crashing down the rocky cliffs into a pool of crystal clear water, with the lush verdant vegetations in the form of ferns crawling up the smoother parts of the cliffs, and the trees around the river banks make it a perfect location to revitalize your spirit. The place is ideal to spend a picnic and to enjoy the serene atmosphere with the sounds of the falling water and happy chirping of birds.

Black River Gorge National Park

The Black River Gorge National Park is the largest protected area of Mauritius. It extends over 6,754 hectares that is 2 % of rolling hills and thick native forest of the South Western part of the island.
