“Beachside Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We chose this hotel on a personal recommendation, which we found to be fully justified. The room costs are not cheap but once in, everything - food, drink, water sports and all - is included. You can be swimming from one of the hotel's various beaches, and a man in a little electric vehicle like a milk float will drive up and ask if you want any cold drinks - complimentary of course, like everything else (except tobacco).There are large numbers of extremely helpful and willing staff around to assist. My wife was very enthusiastic about the quality of the massage in the spa (it was her first visit to Mauritius and she says that when she returns, it has to be the Shandrani). Definitely we would recommend.

Room Tip: All the rooms are in villas ranged along the shore-line from the main reception, dining and bar area...

We returned to Shandrani in November 2012 having previously stayed in 2008 and were slightly worried would not be as good , but in fact was even better. The staff are great, additional restaurants give added choice the choice of food is exceptional and the rooms are clean,spacious and very comfortable. We had a very relaxing time and took advantage of the island taxi trip which we asked to include Walk with Lions, this was a truly fab experience in that does what says on tin! 8 of us plus 2 Rangers and a stick each!!!! Walking in wood with two 4 year old white lions, getting to touch them and watching play was awesome highly recommend.
We would definitely not hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting relaxing holiday, great location and great food & service, the Spa was fantabulous, after our free half hour we went back for 2 more - bliss. The noise from aircraft is only on take off and it never bothered either of us, gone before you realise they are there. if Not been before you in for a treat.

Stayed at this hotel the first two weeks of December and got married there mid way through, it has so much to offer and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We were truly pampered with our spa treatments and enjoyed all the facilities, including golf, tennis, waterskiing, kayaking, glass bottom boat, snorkelling. The wedding day was lovely all went according to plan and we certainly have lots of nice photos from the occasion from Elie Bernager, he was excellent and highly recommended. The food was lovely throughout our stay although you had to book early to get into some of the restaurants as because the resort was not full they closed some of the nights we were there. We got an upgrade to the senior suite at the end of our stay as part of our honeymoon but also because they were making some finishing touches to the delux room we had and wanted our block cleared. This made the holiday even more special, the suite was beautiful all open plan with a huge round bath that was overlooking the sea from inside the room, a DVD player with large plasma, and fully stocked mini bar. Each night canapes where delivered to the room as a nice little extra touch, All in all would recommend this hotel even though as most people have commented you can hear the aircraft
Special thanks to John Paul and Shandrine the wedding coordinators and Paul who took us to Port Louis to sort out the paper work, hopefully we will return one day in the future

Wow -- what a great holiday. I would recommend this to anyone wanting an all inclusive island holiday.
The service and staff were amazing, the food unbelievable and the variety of areas to lounge (Lagoon, open sea or Channel) were just what the doctor ordered.

We were fortunate to stay in a suite and the staff could not do enough for us. We had our own dedicated area on the beach and that was constantly stocked with whatever we wanted to drink. Out room bar was always full and the snacks and Canapé's each night were delicious.

Room Tip: If you can, go for a family suite. It makes all the difference and you are the VIPs of the hotel. No...

Put on about 3 Kg is 3 days at this great all inclusive resort in the South of Mauritius.

The beaches available are really different from the rest of resorts in Mauritius - you have a choice of being at the lagoon near the hotel and its pool or further away at two other beaches - one with beautiful corals and the other a nice wild ocean beach with great waves.

The bar service is is generous and well stocked, but we found the beach trolly food and bev service and mini bar service not as comprehensive or as regular as last time ( Sign of the times??) .

Food at the Italian and seafood restuarants was super; well presented and delicious. Good wines were available for pairing with the various courses.

The kids loved the free flow of food and drinks all day long.

Staff were very friendly and helpful.
