Situated in the Indian Ocean, 6 hour flight from Dubai, Mauritius is literally a paradise on earth. Turquoise water, kilometers of white sand, tropical climate and landscape – the perfect scenario for sun and sand lovers.
The airline I work for has two daily flights to Mauritius, allowing me to visit this island every once in a while.
We stay at the Shandrani Resort & Spa, a picturesque resort nearby the airport. In addition to the beautiful and well kept gardens, water activities and beaches, there´s a facility I always pay a visit to – the Spa by Clarins.
I`m not much into spas, but this one is an exception and a priority whenever I go to Mauritius. It`s not just the quality of the products and treatments, but the space itself.
Spa by Clarins also features a variety of exotic flowers, such as Hibiscus and Frangipani which emanate tropical fragrances.
There`s another facility I absolutely love – the hammam or steam bath. It`s extremely relaxing and has several health benefits. Apart from reducing fat and toxins from your body, it also relaxes muscles and treats rhinitis and sinusitis. Since I was “gifted” with these last two conditions, I spend at least 30 min in the hammam.
The Spa is sponsored by Clarins. There`s a variety of treatments: from manicure/pedicure, to facials and massages, which can be individual or for two, if one fancies to “spice” up the ambience with a better half.
Soon I`ll post about the treatments available at the Spa by Clarins and the one I like the most. For now, “stroll” around throughout this gorgeous zen place with the pictures below.
