“Piece of heaven.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Such a fabulous place to kick back and relax while soaking in the fresh ocean air. I have been coming to the Shandrani since it was still Le Chaland, and the place still blows my mind. Besides the pure beauty of the setting what always amazes me is the simplicity of the whole place. Everywhere you go, someone is smiling at you or saying a nice word, from the Director to the gardener.
I could name names but it would mean the whole list of employees because at one time or another they have all contributed to making my trip something special. The service is what definitely set this hotel apart from others. By far the friendliest staff anywhere, they will definitely go the extra mile to make you happy.
As far as food goes, well....again, best of the best. My only complaint is that I put on 14 Lbs in 3 weeks, personally blame the best pastry chef for that...sheer genius. If you go there don't miss out on the best cappuccino at the Sirrius, a real treat!
If you are into spas and massages, you're in for a treat, they have some great talent there too. Nothing more relaxing than a massage at the end of the day.
It's a no brainer, for the best vacation in the tropic or anywhere for that matter, Shandrani is the place. One look at the place of thousand smiles and you're hooked!

The resort and food were brilliant..as were all the staff, it truly was a dream honeymoon. One complaint, they really need to sort the vermin infestation out. It isn't pleasant having vermin running between your legs.

I read lots of reviews from trip advisors and so on and we decided to stay this hotel for our honey moon.
We are so glad that we chose this hotel!
Food , Service and Watersports plus location are just perfect!
We booked as honeymoon stay and we got one couple massage and also some little gift from hotel shops which we didnt expected it.

Food was good but hard to book restaulant and few days we ended up with buffet one which was also ok. Italian seems not so popular but other restaulant we got only 1 chance to eat at each restaulant. Drink even champain is also included from 18 !
Lunch restaulant we loved going to serius since it is nicer than buffet we thought.

Watersports, waterskin , snokeling etc is free to do and we did something everyday !
Since it is winter in Mauritius and maybe off season, not that many guests in hotels and that was relaxing. We loved the car which comes to the beaches few times a day and we gets some drink or some snacks easily!

Someone mentioned about noise from airport and it is true that you hear quite loud noise few times a day but it doesnt bother us much and quit excited to see airplanes with that big size everyday and we enjoyed this too.
Only 10 mins from airport, 500rp with taxi and we could have late check out which costs 3000rp i guess and we could use all the facility till we go to airport.
We defenetly loves this hotel and cant wait to going back !

We had two week holiday to Mauritius one week in the north one week here at the sandrani, and the second week was definitely the best only two days in. The hotel is fabulous! The pools are lovely the facilities spotless and cleaned regularly, the staff very accommodating and nothing is to much trouble. Impressed from the outset! As our stay is for more than four nights we had complimentary spa massages, wow!! The spa is amazing beautiful gardens, pool and relaxation area to chill it islovely. Three beaches to choose from its paradise, I would love to visit again. I think the sandrani is a lovely place to stay even with a young child we are having a great time.

I recommend this hotel for the first few nights accommodation in Mauritius as it's a short drive from the airport. Relax here for a night or so before setting off to another resort. Hotel is beautiful, lovely pool with a few beaches to choose from so you don't feel like you're in a cramped resort - even the golf course (par 3, about 9 holes) is good fun. I stayed in a superior room top floor with lovely views over the bay. Restaurants/bars are great and staff are super friendly - plus all inclusive so no bills to sign! I didn't use the spa, however had a sneak peak and looked fabulous.

We are fortunate to live on the beautiful tropical Island of Mauritius, situated east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. My wife and I recently enjoyed a week at the 5-star Shandrani Resort & Spa Hotel in the south of the Island, accompanied by our daughter, son-in-law and two young grandchildren. The setting is truly magnificent, looking on to a turquoise-blue lagoon and the rolling breakers of the Indian Ocean. The low-rise cabana-style accommodation nestles amongst tropical vegetation and swaying coconut-trees. Our deluxe ground-floor room was spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. The public areas, with high thatch roofs, stone and timber, carry through the tropical island theme to perfection. We opted for the all-inclusive tariff, which means, simply, that there are no additional charges for food, drinks or activities. Service was of a high standard. I was, however, a little disappointed with the variety of the food, whether dining buffet-style in the main dining room, or in the specialty restaurants. That is not to say that the food is not well prepared and presented, but I felt that there could have been more options. I would have preferred food that caters to non-esoteric tastes, like mine! Overall, however, we had a most pleasant stay and I highly recommend this hotel.

We returned home today after spending fifteen days at Shandrani. We are a couple of two boys, seeking relaxing days ... we have found a very family orientated hotel, well mantemidas istalaciones but not to the level of a five star hotel. Our room (delux) very practical and comfortable but no frills or details in line with the category of hotel, well insulated and not in depth cleaning. The food in the a la carte is decent although very limited, consists of starter, main and dessert dish ... if you want more, you must pay a fee of Rs 1140!! about 30 EUROS!! This is not an all inclusive? The buffet restaurant is very poor in variety and this particular bit dirty and maintained, no authentic clouds of mosquitoes and other insects for bread, vegetables, desserts and other food!! waiters in restaurants and bars are attentive but very very very slow and little profesionles in service. The hotel is adjacent to the runway and take off from the airport of Mauritius, although air traffic at this airport can not be compared to a big city in Europe, the aircraft noise are annoying, especially at night. Our conclusion is that the hotel is not up to what one would expect from a trip to Mauritius.
