...A union of body, mind and soul. Come see...

Imagine if you will,
a resort located on the isle of Mauritius...
surrounded by the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean
with it's coral reefs.
Splendid sensual almost summer all year round....

Shanti Ananda Resort is a beautiful part of
the blissful Mauritian experience... Ananda means bliss in sanskrit
and "a pathway to vitality through a union of body, mind and soul."


Spread on over 36 acres of tropical gardens,
ponds and pools....A gateway
to peace...
who doesn't deserve a gateway to peace?


The resort has 55 rooms that overlook the ocean...
A spa offers hydrotherapy and Swedish massage, yoga...
three swimming pools are nestled among lushly landscaped gardens.







The rooms have a quiet simple elegance to them
Let the great healers of
Nature...

Rest.....



Beauty....







...and Stillness
...Begin to work their magic.










“From one citizen
you gather the idea
that Mauritius was made first,
and then heaven;
and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.”
~Mark Twain


I think he was on to something.

Gorgeous resort! Love that images of the lounge chairs and umbrellas. Vacations are the best because time goes much slower than being in the real world.
Thanks for taking us away for a moment!

As much as we do have great winter weather in San Diego, this looks so appealing right now, a little massage, a little dip, a little drink, a little nap.....serenity and exotic locale equals nirvana!
