“Wonderful yet again!”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

Returned to the Shandrani for another 2 weeks after getting married there in 2010 and once again it was wonderful.
Holiday was organised by Mauritius Direct would highly recommend them if you are thinking of a holiday in either Mauritius or the Maldives.
Rooms - we were on the quiet side of the resort close to the 'quiet beach' room 243, the rooms are kept beautifully clean but are looking a little dated. The deluxe rooms are undergoing refurbishment as we speak and we were assured by the hotel that they would be beautiful so if you want 'modern' then maybe pay a bit extra?
Food - Once again fantastic in every restaurant although we were'nt so keen on the evening Le Sirius menu although lunchtimes in there the food was brilliant. No problem booking the a la carte restaurants while we were there but it was quiet so I guess when the hotel is full up it might be harder to get into them on every night you want to.
Staff - what can I say they are all wonderful and make the holiday, special mention to Dany & Dennis who remembered us from our first visit and made us feel like visiting royalty.
Trips - we did the walking with lions in Casela National Park would recommend this trip the highlight of the holiday. We also went on the nature trip organised by the hotel again well worth doing.
Deep sea fishing - we went again with Marcus who has a boat moored in the bay and visits the hotel every day, he's a lovely man and will organise any type of trip you like and for as long or short as you like.
Spa - Make sure you book your complimentary massage on arrival as it's well worth having.
Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Well what can I say!! We were recommended this resort, so decided to go all out and have our wedding out there, joined by our families. What a fantastic place! The resort was beautiful and so safe. Weather super and not too hot for this time of year. The food was outstanding, with a choice of five restaurants, so catered for anyones taste. The staff could not do enough for you! They were friendly, charming and hard working, making sure you always had everything you needed. Our rooms were lovely and enjoyed a fantastic sea view.

Our wedding coordinators, Jean-Paul and Sandrine, were amazing! Everthing was sorted out for us and the day was better than we could have ever imagined!! We were married on a Saturday and had our wedding lunch at the Sirus restaurant.....FABULOUS!! The restaurant staff were amazing! The table was beautifully set out. Evening, we had a beach barby with a fire pit, again everything was faultless!

There is so much to do, especially around the water. The staff are all experienced and helpful in whatever you choose to do. My father lost his wedding ring one day while out on one of the cayaks and two days later, the boat house staff went out scuba diving to find it.....and they did!!!! Amazing!!

All in all a totally wonderful destination and a MUST!!!

One thing to consider though....the resort runs a kiddies club which is super but if your children, like our party, are of ages 10 and above, aside from water sports there is not an awful lot to keep them occupied, especially in the evenings, like a games room for example. Thank goodness for iphones and ipod touches!

5 Stars Shandrani!!! x

What can I say. We went on a family holiday to Mauritius from the 29th July - 12th August and stayed at the Shandrani for the complete two weeks. As soon as we arrived we were greeted and welcomed by an extremely helpful receptionist who explained everything that we needed to know in order to get the most out of the holiday as possible. We were just in awe of the amazing place where we were fortunate enough to be spending two weeks.
Every single member of the staff at the Shandrani is extremely friendly and will do anything to ensure that you are happy an comfortable, nothing is too much trouble.
With a choice of five restaurants, we ate at the hotel every night and enjoyed every dish. There is something for everyone, no matter whether or not you have any specific dietary requirements.
The hotel facilities are also brilliant, we spent 6 days waterskiing, as every member of the team tried their utmost to get myself, my brothers, my sister, and even my parents skiing confidently. We also went on the cycle trip to Mahebourg that the hotel had organised, this was easy and we had a lovely time. It is also very easy to organise excursions via the hotel, as well as packed lunches and transport.
I can honestly say that I have never stayed anywhere like the Shandrani and will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you for a wonderful time.

We had a great time at Shandrani. The negative people will always find faults, the normal people will always appreciate how good something is and enjoy it for that!

It's a superb location - snorkelling by walking from the beach let alone from the boat, all the water activities you may want either complimentary or available from the beach and the Hotel's vessels.

The food was excellent and in the main restaurant (Grand Port) it is hard not to try almost everything rather than just one or two items on your plate. Service exceptional, of course.

The staff were brilliant too - very diligent, hard-working and attentive without being overly so.

We enjoyed Mauritius very much and also exploring what was there, from climbing the Tamarin Falls, going over to Isle des Augrettes to see the Olive White Eye and the Pink Pigeon (as well as the giant tortoises) to Pamplemousses' (SSR) Gardens. Seeing the Bulbul birds, the Mauritius Cardinal (Fody) and the weaver bird colony in the grounds adds to it all.

The work ethic displayed by the average Mauritian is to be commended, from the Hotel staff to the market gardeners who strive very hard and supply the several markets around the Island. We also enjoyed our guided tour of the kitchens - catering for 750 guests at peak must be crazy and we were glad that we were there in the 'Winter' though it sounds like I shouldn't like it when it is too hot and humid!

Highly recommend a trip, a holiday the family won't forget for a long time.

Room Tip: Our room was great - and with a lovely sea view and our own little beach out the back door!
