As the title very simply indicates Mauritius's lifestyle is a very relaxed one. This would probably be everybody's thought when looking into Mauritius Life for perhaps the first time. Thinking that everyone's at the beach all day! Well, that's not really what I mean!
Work does indeed happen in Mauritius and people do have to make a living to survive like everywhere else in the world. However, in my experience, Mauritius does focus on the quality of life itself and therefore the whole island seems to have a relaxed outlook on life in general.
Some may find this a little frustrating at times, but for me, I have grown to embrace it and bring this ethos into my life as much as possible whilst at the same time being focussed on my career.

We’ve stayed at the Shanti Hotel at Saint Felix several times and on each visit, we have come away wanting to return.
Each time we’ve stayed at the Shanti Maurice we have treated ourselves to time at the Shanti Spa. First, soaking in a warm bubbling jacuzzi and then indulging in one of the spa massages which always leaves me wanting to come back again.
I’ve spoken about that Rum Shed in the Top 10 Bars in Mauritius section of this website but needless to say whenever we visit the Shanti Maurice we make sure we book an evening at the Rum Shed. Its shabby chic driftwood style makes it the perfect place to unwind whilst enjoying great food and exotic cocktails. The bar itself boasts 200 different types of Rum from all over the world and many as limited editions, what’s not to like!
One of the Shanti Maurice greatest assets is its staff. From the first time we arrived at the Shanti Maurice, we were welcomed by every one of the staff team and on our following visits, we were recognised almost as old friends rather than paying guests.
