Dare to live a life without walls

A holiday with Constance Hotels is an ideal time to break down the walls of routine and try something new and exciting.

Diving with manta rays in Indian Ocean

Diving with manta rays

Get your pulse racing by shark diving in the Maldives, big game fishing in Mauritius or catamaran sailing in the Seychelles.

Trying something new

Set yourself a physical challenge on your next holiday to push yourself beyond your comfort zone, and it might just change the way you see yourself and your future when you get back home.

More and more people are seeking out holiday experiences where they can try something completely new, increase the flow of endorphins along the way, and return home with exciting stories to tell and a renewed state of mind.

What’s on offer at our resorts

Some of our adrenalin-pumping activities, available at most resorts, include:

  • Diving and snorkeling – the ultimate buzz, explore the underwater world of the Indian Ocean
  • Waterskiing – feel the wind and ocean spray in your face with this high-speed sport
  • Windsurfing and kite surfing – master the skill of harnessing the wind’s power to carry you across the water
  • Wakeboarding – take water-sports to the extreme
Wakeboarding in Madagascar

  • Catamaran sailing – sail across the ocean at speeds of up to 20mph in one of our Hobie Cats
  • Mountain biking – heart-thumping off-road experiences through wild and rough terrain

Sometimes trying something new can be as simple as doing the familiar in a different way. So if you’re already a keen diver or angler why not try the experience of doing it at night?

Le Prince Maurice, Belle Mare Plage and Ephélia all offer night dives while Halaveli, Moofushi, Lémuria and Tsarabanjina offer night fishing or big game fishing trips with experienced fishing guides. At Tsarabanjina you can even enjoy a full moon hand line fishing experience.

From tackling the climbing wall and zipwire at Ephélia to dolphin-spotting by speedboat at Halaveli through to diving in Halaveli’s ‘shark pit’, with Constance a change in pace could leave you mentally refreshed and physically rebooted.

A delight for the senses

Guests at Constance Le Prince Maurice can now enjoy the exotic scent of our new fragrance, Stance.

Blended by the celebrated French perfumier Michèle Gay, the fragrance evokes the heady, spice-filled ambience of the Mauritian resort.

The perfume combines the exotic scents of clove, cinnamon, cardamom, grapefruit and ginger used in traditional Mauritian cuisine with base notes of myrrh, patchouli and vetiver creating a delight for the senses.

A member of Société Française des Parfumeurs, Gay made her name creating the concept of culinary perfumery, pairing essential oils of the perfume world with those of the culinary world.

Fans of her work include Céline Dion, Patricia Kaas and Aude de Thuin.

 

Enjoy this poem written by Michèle Gay to celebrate the launch of Stance:

As rare and unique
as the Constance-Prince Maurice,
stance is its new fragrance.

stance,
a rare word describing a poem,
a set of verses with full and flawless meaning
whose rhythm is found
in and twixt every line.

stance,
perfect poetry of the Constance-Prince Maurice,
found in every time and place
of a holiday that delights our senses.

Yet this perfume has suspension and silences
that bring us greater appreciation of life…
so very like the Constance-Prince Maurice

allowing us to truly be.
At the very heart of ourselves,
far from simply seeming, just being.

stance,
is an indulgence that we give
and that we encounter
and which always surprises us.
It is a different approach to perfume.
Never overwhelming,
it exudes the harmony of the Constance-Prince Maurice,
welcomes us, winks at us,
stays with us and keeps us reaching for its rarity.

stance,
is a rite of perfume.

stance,
is an indulgence ….
born of the meeting of place and nose
following the Culinary Perfumery path.

Michèle Gay
daringly flavours our dishes
and here captures Mauritian curry in perfume.

Her Culinary Perfumery
leads us to a cuisine-perfume
where, in head, heart and base notes,
myrrh, patchouli and vetiver meet and mingle…
that which French luxury has embraced with passion…

stance,
presents us the reflection
A spice-essence heart,
clove, cinnamon, cardamom,
the ginger opening,
the sandalwood base of molasses magic,
sweep us away to the Grapefruit Garden
on the sugar plantations of Constance.

stance,
takes us back to the roots
and values of Constance
and reminds us of the very best…
the Constance-Prince Maurice.

With the merest wafting,
wherever you might be,
stance
always brings you back
to Maurice’s perfect poetry…
