We celebrate local ingredients at all of our restaurants and follow a farm-to-fork ethos where possible, meaning that guests are served only the finest food. When the smell of freshly barbecued food circles around you, and the sound of waves crashing against the sandy beach fills the air, you will know that you are in Mauritius - that you are home!


Stars offers a magically romantic setting to enjoy a relaxing evening. Our Aquacasian menu features the freshest ingredients and spectacular flavours, and brings together the very best Indian Ocean cuisine. Our perfectly prepared dishes celebrate the bounty of the Indian Ocean and the culinary art the islands have to offer: from Africa in the west, Asia in the north, and Indonesia in the east.

Rum sheds are traditionally where locals meet to enjoy their free time.

Red Ginger Bar & Pool Lounge

A relaxed and friendly cocktail bar that also offers an al fresco and indoor dining experience with a large menu and wine list to choose from. The Red Ginger Lounge is a great meeting place for a pre-dinner drink, post-dinner cocktail, or just somewhere to relax as the sun sets over the nearby infinity pool.

Opening Hours: 10.00 till late night


Shanti Maurice is spread over 36 acres of fragrant tropical gardens. The site hugs the coast and offers spectacular views of mountains, islands and, of course, the ocean. This means that you can choose from countless picnic spots, and our chefs can prepare wholesome meals to eat wherever you choose.

In-Villa-Dining/Room Service 24hrs

With 24-hour in-villa dining available in all of our villas and suites, you don’t even need to leave for dinner. Enjoy freshly-prepared, flavourful cuisine from the comfort of your villa or private garden at a time that suits you.

Experiential Dining

La Kaze Mama and Fish Shack are our two experiential dining outlets that offer authentic Mauritian dining in a beautifully original way. Both restaurants are open seasonally and dependent on weather and bookings. Please check opening days and times at the hotel if you are interested in sampling delicious Mauritian cuisine in a spectacular outdoor setting.

Fish Shack

Shanti Maurice's guests can mix with the locals at our Fish Shack, as it is as popular with Mauritians as with visitors. Extremely fresh fish and locally-caught game is cooked to order, served with vegetables and herbs picked from our gardens, and washed down with an expertly prepared cocktail, locally brewed beer, or wine.

Opening Hours: Shanti Times Calendar Dependent

La Kaze Mama

La Kaze Mama is all about traditional Mauritian home cooking, and we are inviting you to experience a combination of our most popular dining experiences; Grandma's Kitchen and the Herb Garden BBQ. Traditional tried and tested local recipes are served in a relaxed but spectacular outdoor setting. The restaurant uses as many flavourful local ingredients as possible, many grown on our own herb and vegetable garden, and follows age old Mauritian recipes.

Cress and coriander. Beetroot and basil. Broccoli and mint. Our bountiful herb and vegetable garden lies alongside our lush landscaped gardens and provides fresh fare for our kitchen and fresh ideas for our guests.
