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.
