The Legend Golf Course is a parkland type of course with beautiful mature trees and lush vegetation between the different fairways.

It also has water hazards on almost every hole, making this golf course a very technical but fair challenge for the players. Power is not the priority on the Legend. You need to be accurate with your drives if you want to beat the course. The 12th & 13th holes are the “Amen Corner” of this course. Many players have lost tournaments on these holes.

On hole 12, which is a par four, you have to be on the green in two to get away with a par, missing the green means trouble. The 13th hole is a short par five that is very narrow. Depending on your strategy, you could complete this hole with a birdie or a triple bogey. The par three 17th is the signature hole. With a drive of 140 meters over the lagoon, it is a very exciting shot for every golfer.

We’ve stayed at the Shanti Hotel at Saint Felix several times and on each visit, we have come away wanting to return.

Shanti Spa
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.

Rum Shed
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!

Shanti Team
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.

I came across the Rum Shed on my first visit to the Shanti Maurice Hotel & Spa. As we entered the grounds of the hotel, just to the left-hand side I saw a sign “Rum Shed” which immediately pricked my interest.

The Rum Shed is part of the Shanti Hotel and is only open on a Saturday evening, so we booked at reception for dinner. As we walked down the gravel path we were greeted by the Shanti staff and a fully ablaze firepit in the middle of the Restaurants courtyard.

Inside the “Shed” is a bar boasting over 200 Rums from around the world, a delight for the Rum connoisseur or for those that like Rum cocktails. The floor is of sand and the walls are multi-coloured planks of timber littered with objects and pictures with light-shades of full-sized steel drums hanging from the ceiling.
The bar area is warm and friendly and expertly staffed. I recommend the Bar special smoking rum cocktail. Nibbles or meal appetisers can be served at the bar, you only have to as
I have mentioned the Shanti 3 times on this website, here, Mauritius Top 10 Hotels and Mauritius Top 10 Bars and for many reasons but I must applaud the quality of its manager and the attentive staff. Personally, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
