ABOUT THE HOTEL
Quietness and relaxation - everything in the hotel is intended to create the atmosphere of happiness, feeling of peace and harmony.
The main concept of the hotel is bliss and tranquility (known as Shanti). The hotel is located on the southern coast of Mauritius. On the one hand you will be fascinated by the beauty and power of the ocean attacking coastal volcanic stones. At the same time, the hotel sand beach in front of the main cottages offers absolutely different view: the same ocean tamed by the stripe of the coral reef gently sweeps the snow-white sand. Several luxury villas were built here in 2008. They became a favorite spot for newly-weds, wealthy and famous people looking for quiet and private place. Along with villas, a Spa center was expanded to satisfy the increasing demand for unique spa treatments. The center offers a wide collection of methods and practices based on the millennial Western traditions – Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, Vedanta, as well as efficient European methods. The resort philosophy is to create a perfect place where guests can experience the best and the best of true Mauritius. This hotel offers the perfect surroundings for romantic couples, families with children and simply lovers of luxury holidays and great service. Here you can restore your body, mind and spirit, find a rhythm when your body will stop self-destruction and will start the process of self-restoration. You should come here at least for a week. For two is better. For three is much better. For a month is perfect. But the best option is to leave everything and settle here forever.
