In her article for the FT’s How to Spend It section, Shollenbarger believes that Mauritius is re-emerging into the spotlight as a luxury Indian Ocean destination for discerning travellers.

Compared to other luxury hotels in the Maldives she says that, ‘Le Prince Maurice holds an ace in its pocket in the form of exceptional tranquillity: its private bay and narrow, smooth and eminently swimmable beach are protected by a natural land protrusion at its southern end.’

Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius

Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius

This review is from Jane Mann, a guest who recently returned to Constance Le Prince Maurice for her second visit:

‘Paradise re-visited’

Reviewed June 2, 2013

I have never been back to the same hotel in my years of travelling this fantastic globe, and wondered if I had made a mistake in choosing to return to Le Prince Maurice. I need not have worried. The hotel was even more luxurious after its refurbishment, and the service… well, what can I say.

Greeted by name by every member of staff… the General Manager introduced himself again over dinner, the Spa manager came over at breakfast to ask how my massage had been the previous day, the receptionist greeted me as a long-lost friend and the guest relation’s manager up-graded me and treated me like royalty.

Spa de Constance, Constance Le Prince Maurice

I am an ordinary, hard-working widow, who spends the money earned from my stressful job on exotic holidays. I left this beautiful hotel feeling utterly pampered and very special. I am sure it will not be my last visit. Thank you Constance Le Prince Maurice. You are a gem amongst hotels.”
