Shanti Maurice is a luxury family-friendly resort and spa in Mauritius offering something for the whole family. Five-star boutique lifestyle beach resort with a collection of luxury family-friendly suites and private villas, surrounded by beaches and coral on the southern coast of this beautiful island.
We talk a lot at Holiday Tots about what there is to do for babies and toddlers, so this time we thought we would switch it up and highlight what there is to do for the adults, the mummies and daddies, older siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents and carers too. After all we all need a break!
