“A Winner”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The Shandrani Hotel is a winner, specially for a family holiday. Located very close to the airport, there is no need for a long trip by road after your flight has arrived.

On arrival, we were greeted and immediately taken to our rooms. Everything was as we requested.
The rooms are large, very comfortable, and cleaned twice a day. Towels and linen are of a good quality.

The food is outstanding, with 5 restaurants to choose from. Service on the beach is great, you do not even have to walk to fetch something to eat or drink, it is brought to you.

The property is large, and you never feel crowded. There is a lot to do, from a short nine hole golf course, tennis, to water skiing, sailing, snorkeling, etc.The beauty of all, is that everything is included in the all inclusive package, so you can just relax and enjoy.

The spa is beautiful, and the therapists are good.

The best off all is the service you receive from the staff. All the staff, cleaners, gardeners, waiters, everyone goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful.

The only disappoint was the snorkeling, which, compared to the Maldives and Seychelles, was not great. Fortunately, there are a lot of other activities which keeps you busy.

We have enjoyed our 10 days at Shandrani, and will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms 321 onwards are very centrally located, and close to the beach.

The Shandrani is just amazing! We stayed here for our honeymoon & it delivered the luxury we were looking for & more. I've been lucky to visit Mauritius a few times & stay in different hotels on different parts of the island & this is the stand out experience for me. The food particularly was wonderful & there is a great choice of different restaurants. We had one of our most memorable meals ever in the seafood restaurant, it was stunning & Michelin standard & we couldn't believe it was included in the all inclusive price. Our room was perfect & there's every facility you could want including a stunning pool & sauna in the spa area. The evening entertainment is a little more 'grown up' than other hotels we've stayed in & included a jazz band & lounge singer on the nights we were there. Would more than recommend this hotel to everyone!

We've just got back from our honeymoon at the Shandrani Mauritius where we had 10 days all inclusive. The resort is breathtaking and caters for everyone, the facities are excellent. The food at all restaurants (5 in total) is 5 star and different at each one. The Grand Port, which is the main buffet restaurant, has so much choice and the quality is first class. The service is the resorts biggest asset, the staff simply cannot do enough for you, extremely helpful in every way.
We had a private day trip around the bay which included snorkeling, sight seeing, lunch on pardise island......... far too much to mention and our guide was ERIC. If you see him on the beach you have to hire him for the day. His passion for the island and ocean is unbelievable and we couldnt recommend him highly enough. All in all it was the perfect holiday and we have high standards! Cannot wait to return, thank you.

We've had the opportunity to visit many hotels in Mauritius and the Shandrani stands out due to the hospitality and professionalism of its employees and its unique luxury all-inclusive.
In fact, they offer a very broad variety of menus and all the alcoholic drinks (local but also imported brands) are included.

They have an absolutely stunning beach, the only one we found like it in Mauritius (deep blue water and white sand).

We strongly recommend the Shandrani.

We just got back from a fantastic vacation at the Shandrani. The hotel is very close to the airport which we found to be a plus after a long flight from the USA. The plane noise is very minimal and it is pretty cool to see the planes take off right over the resort. The food exceeded expectations. Breakfast had a good selection of breads, fruits, and an egg station. Lunch always had a grilled fish, at least one meat choice and a rotating Indian lentil dish that was fantastic. I wish there had been a bigger salad station but it was decent. We really enjoyed dinner at all of the sit down restaurants. The service could not have been better and the food was excellent. The champagne is also wonderful! Overall we felt very well taken care of at this resort. Having stayed a few all inclusive resorts in the past I really think this one stands out. All that said the beach itself is not great. If you are looking for a beautiful sandy white beach this is probably not the resort for you. The lagoon is great for water activities but swimming is tough because of all of the coral. I would suggest bringing water shoes if you are planning to be out there.

What a lovely hotel in paradise. This resort leaves you wanting for very little during your stay. Expect lazy cocktail filled days on the beach and nights at the beach bar enjoying the show. There are 3 beaches, a variety of restaurants and some water activities to chose from

Room Tip: Book your spa treatment when you book your trip!!!

That's what the Beachcomber magazine says, they are so right! I just finished yet another dream vacation at the Shandrani. Of all the places around the world and I keep coming back to the same every year. Why?! Well, because at the Shandrani, I am living the dream.
You wake up in the morning to the most beautiful scenery everywhere you look. The entire staff just as beautiful as the scenery, truly the happiest people around.
Year after year the place keeps up, food still amazing, sports fabulous, spa....don't get me started ( try a massage, any massage maybe a facial) a must!
Another perfect vaca! Thanks to Mr. Pinault and his fantastic staff. So, what are you waiting for, pack up and see you on the beach!

Room Tip: They are all good!
