Set between the turquoise of the Indian Ocean and the vivid greens of the sugarcane fields, Shanti Maurice provides its guests with access to the sights, sounds and flavours of the unique mix of Indian, African, French and Chinese influences that form the Mauritian culture. From sourcing the majority of the restaurants’ ingredients from the island’s farmers and fishermen, to supporting village crafts by supplying hand-woven beach carriers, the new team at Shanti Maurice has taken enormous care to work with the community both to respect its environs and minimise the impact of the resort on it.
