On a recent visit to the resort the magazine describes the Seychelles as an idyllic holiday destination and Ephélia as the perfect place to stay.

5 star luxury in Seychelles

‘We stayed at the breathtakingly beautiful 5 star Constance Ephélia Resort on the island of Mahé. Here we enjoyed swimming in our private pool at our private villa where all you can hear are birds singing, the rustling of leaves in the coconut palms and small waves washing onto the North Beach just a few steps away.’

The magazine team was amazed by the number of activities on offer at the resort and tried their hands at everything from rock climbing and zip lining to trail hiking and spa treatments. They even took time out to feed the resort’s 110-year-old tortoise, Dusty.

Other highlights outlined by the magazine were the tantalising, 5 star food served at the resort’s five restaurants and the friendliness of all the hotel staff. ‘The staff are like a family at Constance Ephélia Resort, even though there are 800 of them!’

Held at Mottram Hall in Cheshire last week, Wesslingh produced a stunning 20 under par total, including a flawless final round, to hold off all challengers and take the ISPS Championship.

Wesselingh was reported as saying, ‘It’s unbelievable, I just can’t believe I’ve done it. Couldn’t believe I’d done it last year and I can’t believe I’ve done it again this year.’

Challenging Wesselingh for the top spot was Paraguay’s Angel Franco coming in second with 16 under par and fellow Englishman Ian Woosnam who came in third.
