The Sunday Times puts Constance Le Prince Maurice in its 100 Ultimate holidays

Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius

The Sunday Times this week names Mauritius, and in particular Constance Le Prince Maurice, as good value for money in its guide to the best holidays in 2014.

The paper describes Mauritius as a destination of choice for those looking for a relaxing luxury holiday at a reasonable price where ‘five-star holidays on the Indian Ocean island (are) cheaper than a four-star holiday in the Med’.

Gastronomy holidays in the Indian Ocean 2014

One of the hot holiday trends for foodies in 2014 is the gourmet holiday, a chance to combine a trip abroad with the very finest food experience.

Gastronomy holidays at Constance

Gastronomy holidays at Constance

The islands of the Indian Ocean have long had a tradition of delicious food infused with the flavours and heat of local herbs and spices but it took the development of luxury hotels and restaurants in the area to create a gastronomic fusion of traditional and European cuisines.

It is this development which has made discovering the local flavours of countries like Mauritius, Madagascar, Maldives and the Seychelles, a fine-dining treat for the foodie traveller.

Traditional flavours with a culinary twist

At Constance, our classically trained, world-class chefs are at the very centre of this passion for culinary adventure taking the traditional spices and flavours of the islands and merging them with European traditions of haute cuisine.

So at Constance Moofushi in the Maldives our chefs took the traditional Maldivian fisherman’s dish of tuna curry and gave it a Constance twist while at Constance Belle Mare Plage the chefs have turned the popular Mauritius fruit, the Chinese guava, into a sorbet served with a local palm kernel salad.

Fresh high-quality ingredients

Our passion for creating the very best dishes begins with the sourcing of fresh ingredients and, where possible, this means sourcing things locally from the vibrant markets or direct from local fishermen.

Our chefs at Constance Le Prince Maurice were even able to track down an Italian cheese-maker who had settled in Mauritius and is passionate about making the very best cacioricotta cheese from local goats’ and cows’ milk to use in their restaurant’s ravioli cacioricotta.

East meets West

At Constance Halaveli’s fine-dining Jing restaurant East meets West in sumptuous style as chefs create fusion dishes such as Red Thai Curry Cappuccino, coffee and anise spiced duck and the delicious desert of mango sticky rice.

A celebration of local culinary traditions

Experience local food, prepared in a traditional way by our world-class chefs and you’ll discover the very best of local island cuisine.

Chefs at Constance Lémuria in the Seychelles recently set about restoring the popularity of the traditional Creole ingredient brède mouroum, the leaves from the moringa tree, by using it as a garnish to their Creole fish broth.

Respect for local culinary traditions is also taken very seriously by our chefs at Constance Tsarabanjina. Our head chef describes the preparation of the national dish Romazava as being like a ritual which no one is allowed to disturb and he is proud to share it with guests of all nationalities.
