Constance Tsarabanjina – a slice of heaven as described by Harper’s Bazaar

The magazine tells its readers that the distant isle off the coast of Madagascar can’t be beaten as a secluded honeymoon getaway.

It describes, ‘The pace is slow, but the service is impeccable. Kick off your shoes as you arrive (you really won’t need them again) and dive into the ocean, surfacing for a massage, a lobster lunch and a lazy hour in your hammock watching frigate birds swoop.’

Tsarabanjina is an idyllic castaway island with a scattering of beautiful secluded beach villas so that you can play Robinson Crusoe with a dash of Constance luxury.

Enjoy the Madagascan charm of lounging on quiet beaches, diving in unexplored waters, eating seafood plucked fresh from the ocean and lovingly prepared by our chefs.

Explore an island of unique biodiversity and rich cultural history before heading back to your very own beach villa and watching the stars from your hammock.

Vallée de Mai celebrates 30 years as UNESCO World Heritage Site

This year the Seychelles celebrates the 30th anniversary of the primeval palm forest, the Vallée de Mai, being declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Set in the heart of Praslin island, a short drive from Constance Lémuria, the Vallée de Mai is part of the beautiful Praslin National Park, an area of ancient forest largely untouched by human hands.

The Coco de Mer

Visitors to the UNESCO World Heritage Site can see a range of endemic species, including the protected coco de mer palm.

A 19th century British explorer was so bowled over by the valley’s beauty that he set out to prove that it was the original site of the Garden of Eden and that the coco de mer palm was the actual tree of knowledge.

Endemic wildlife and plants at Vallée de Mai

A walk around the breathtaking verdant forest, alone or with a guide, is an opportunity to spot rare endemic wildlife including the endangered black parrot, chameleons, Seychelles house snakes and green and bronze geckos.

Alongside the famous coco de mer there are five other types of endemic palms here, the only place on earth where they are all found together, as well as a range of other trees including mango and cinnamon.
