Sunday Times looks at rise in über-luxury holidays

The Sunday Times lists Constance Halaveli as being one of the destinations selected by the super-wealthy to enjoy a truly luxurious holiday.

Rise of the 100k+ holiday

In her piece for the newspaper’s travel section Susan d’Arcy explores the rise of the £100,000+ holiday and cites Halaveli as being one of the places where such lavish experiences are possible.

D’Arcy highlights reports by UK tour operators that the number of holidays in this price bracket have doubled in the last year because, she says, people want ‘something incredible. People want privacy and remote locations, smaller, boutique hotels and amazing places’.

Top luxury holidays at Halaveli

She gives the example of a private equity director and his family who took a very special diving holiday at Halaveli.

Sparing no expense the family stayed in the lavish Presidential Villa complete with its own fitness suite, spa treatment room, pool and secluded section of beach and a personal chef on hand to create delicious meals.

They then enjoyed our most exclusive dive experience including sole use of a yacht for 24 hours with its own personal chef creating sumptuous delicacies from the finest ingredients and an on board spa therapist for massages between dives.

What’s on offer at Halaveli

There is, of course, plenty to enjoy at Halaveli if your budget doesn’t run to £100,000.

If the Presidential Villa is a little bit more than you’re looking for then there are the beautiful, secluded water villas with their own infinity pools dotted along the island’s jetty, or beach villas of various sizes with private pools and gardens.

Enjoy the highlife with private in-villa dining or step out and enjoy elegant fine dining at our stunningly located Jing restaurant with its panoramic ocean views.

You don’t need your own yacht to enjoy the rich marine life of the North Ari Atoll with snorkelling equipment available to guests and a variety of mesmerising dives for all levels.

And at Constance Moofushi, Maldives

D’Arcy points out that for those who are looking for something a little less expensive Constance Moofushi nearby may not be ‘quite so plush, but still pretty’.

iafrica.com discovers paradise in the Seychelles with Constance

Travel writer Richard Holmes claims to have discovered Paradise at Constance Lémuria and Constance Ephélia in his review for South African portal iafrica.com.

Holmes describes paradise as the combination of perfect beach locations with a range of exciting activities.

A keen golfer, Holmes was inspired and challenged by the stunning 18-hole course at Lémuria but says there are also plenty of other things to do.

‘Aside from the golf and the seafront restaurants – expect plenty of fresh seafood and a stellar winelist – and the gourmet beach picnics and the body treatments in the Spa de Constance, the ocean is a major draw card here.’

Holmes describes Lémuria as an idyllic destination for honeymooners and ‘island escape artists’ while he feels the gentle beaches and exciting activities of Ephélia make it a more family-friendly resort.

He raves about the beauty of Ephélia’s Hillside Villas and its ‘outstanding dining options’ but the draw for him are the activities including kayaking through mangroves and zip-lining through the jungle.

Holmes sums up his time with Constance saying, ‘Whether your paradise is on a white beach of fine powdery sand, a tee box gazing off into a manicured golf course, or sitting down to gourmet meal after gourmet meal, you’ll certainly find your own personal paradise in the Seychelles.’
