Design Hotels Adds First Hotel in the Indian Ocean

Design Hotels has announced a new member, Shanti Maurice in Mauritius is the first hotel in the Indian Ocean to be added to the portfolio. Shanti joins its sister properties, Nira Alpina and Nira Montana, already part of Design Hotels.

The hotel design, by Mauritian designer Jean-Marc Eynaud, embraces a tropical feel, using materials like local hardwoods, lave stone, granite, marble and slate to create a sense of place.

To embrace Design Hotel’s signature elements, Shanti Maurice has launched a brand new cuisine, Aquacasia, which uses traditional recipes from the Indian Ocean to add an authentic element. While at the hotel, guests can dine at Stars, the Fish Shack and the Rum Shed, which is built like a traditional, local rum shop.

Shanti Maurice attracts the chic traveler to its coral cove setting on the south coast of Mauritius. All guests will enjoy the 36-acre landscape filled with tropical gardens. Tip: There is also a large spa on property with 25 treatment rooms for ultimate relaxation.
