At Constance, we’re committed to finding the best chefs who can offer our guests the latest culinary styles. At the newly refurbished Le Prince Maurice, we’ve created a new Asian Tapas Corner at the Laguna Bar, headed up by Chef Li Junwei.

Building on the worldwide trend for sushi and Asian cuisine Chef Li Junwei has fused the two ideas to create a fresh and inspiring menu.

‘This is a unique concept,’ Junwei explains, ‘where we serve sushi, noodles, dim sum, Asian tapas and desserts all prepared in front of the guests. As a chef this is very exciting for me as it means I get to talk with the diners, introducing them to Asian culinary traditions and culture.’

Junwei has been a chef for 10 years working across the globe including in Oman, Abu Dhabi and Zanzibar all of which has inspired him in his understanding different cuisines and cultures.

It is this mixing of cuisines which has inspired the menu at the Asian Tapas Corner.

One such dish is the Five Spice Salmon, cooked according to the Chinese smoking tradition but with added Thai spices and a Japanese wakame salad, creating a new, modern flavour.

Laguna Bar at Le Prince Maurice

The laid back vibe of the Laguna Bar, with its deep comfortable chairs and views across the infinity pool to the beach beyond, is the perfect backdrop for tapas dining.

Enjoy by day together with a deliciously healthy fresh juice, or relax into the evening trying out unusual combinations of tapas and drinks. As Junwei explains, ‘Some of our tapas are very light and go well with a strong flavoured drink like a whisky or brandy. Other dishes have a stronger, heavier flavour so I recommend you accompany them with a sweet cocktail like a Mojito or gin and tonic.’

With its romantic setting and this fresh exciting menu created by the culinary passion of Chef Li Junwei, the Asian Tapas Corner is a rare treat for any visitor to Le Prince Maurice.

At Halaveli, we produce our own-label still and sparkling mineral water.

Since March 2011, we have been turning tap water into mineral water using our own bottling plant. This has reduced the need for plastic bottles on the resort.

And late last year, we started our coral regrowth programme - to stimulate the growth of coral in the lagoon around the resort, and help repair the damage caused by the Tsunami in 2004.

Since it opened in November 2010, Moofushi has been wowing guests with its eco-design and barefoot chic approach to luxury holidaying.

The island’s butterfly design and daring architecture was developed by Jean-Michel d’Unienville (Mauritius) and Marc Hertrich (France). Careful consideration has been taken to preserve the environment through efficient and non-polluting materials.
