In a glowing review of our Maldives resorts, Lisa Stokes writing in Director Magazine says Moofushi and Halaveli offer guests their own ‘little piece of paradise’.

The review, which appears in the April edition of the magazine for business leaders, describes Moofushi’s appeal as being its ‘clear turquoise waters and Crusoe-chic elegance’.

Constance Halaveli

In Halaveli it’s the luxurious accommodation with private deck and pool which blew Stokes away. ‘The vast accommodation is so spectacular that you needn’t venture out.’

Spa in the Maldives

She did however manage to pull herself away from the luxury of her villa to sample the spas at both resorts, where she enjoyed the serene, stress-relieving environment of the tranquil treatment rooms floating on stilts above the lagoon.

Of particular note, Stokes praises the couple’s massage followed by champagne and strawberries at Moofushi, and the soothing Valmont treatments at Halaveli.

‘Each open-sided treatment room offers sea views and a glass-floor peephole so that you can spot tropical fish as any stress or tension is soothed away.’

In conclusion Stokes describes the resorts as the perfect place to ‘completely escape the stress of a busy working life.’

Barefoot luxury as Constance Tsarabanjina reopens

Tsarabanjina is the sort of castaway island that travellers dream of finding. With the doors again reopen at the resort following a major refurbishment, guests are discovering that we’ve introduced a few more luxuries to make it all the more comfortable while retaining the barefoot charm of the place.

Constance Tsarabanjina, Madagascar

Beach at Tsarabanjina

Off the beaten track, this unique island get-away already enjoys a loyal following with its reputation as a place to escape from it all – a place that perfectly captures the mood for a simpler take on luxury.

Beach villas

Careful to maintain the barefoot charm and eco-friendliness, while embracing Malagasy culture, interiors have been updated using natural materials and local art and sculpture based on marine life to create a boutique feel to the beachfront villas.

What’s on offer at Tsarabanjina

Lose yourself to the quiet sound of the sea, enjoy a massage on one of the beautiful beaches, fish for your supper, watch the sunset from your beach villa while enjoying a cold glass of something or simply lie back in your hammock and take it all in.

For anyone looking to indulge in a more active holiday, diving here is second to none.  The Mitsio Archipelago has been recently classified as a marine reserve. There are dive sites here that have barely been explored by anyone before.

And if you’ve never snorkelled before, our experienced guides will give you a short introductory session in the lagoon before taking you on your first snorkelling excursion to discover the underwater species in this part of the Indian Ocean.

Discover Madagascar

Our team will take you on a guided nature walk where you can discover more about the endemic species of Madagascar, and take in the awe-inspiring panoramic views from the top of the hills.

We also run full moon cruises, excursions to local landmarks such as the volcanically formed Organ Pipes, trips to a deserted island or local village and more.

And then of course, there are the Lemurs. Enjoy a boat ride to the Nosy Komba’s reserve where you can feed and interact with these friendly creatures.

All inclusive Cristal package

At Tsarabanjina, we have introduced our popular all inclusive Cristal package so you don’t have to worry about a thing once you’re on the island. You can find out more about what’s included in the Cristal package at Tsarabanjina on our website and read why The Sunday Times names Tsarabanjina and Moofushi in world’s best 20 all-inclusives

Constance: a lifestyle by Louis Nore and Yvon Meyer

Take a journey of discovery across the Indian Ocean with our stunning new coffee table book, Constance: a lifestyle.

Constance: a lifestyle by Louis Nore and Yvon Myer

Constance: a lifestyle by Louis Nore and Yvon Meyer

Full of beautiful photographs and interviews with people whose passion has inspired Constance Hotels & Resorts, the book brings to life the colour and vitality of the Indian Ocean.

Sumptuous island food, beautiful white-sand beaches, luscious tropical landscapes and the laughter and joy of the local spirit are all captured in the photographs of Yvon Meyer, and descriptions and interviews of writer Louis Nore.

Travelling across the Indian Ocean

Nore and Meyer travelled across Mauritius, the Maldives, Madagascar and the Seychelles to uncover the stories, culture and cuisine of the people which lie at the heart of everything we do at Constance. The book also includes delicious recipes from each of our resorts.

The beautiful 463-page book started life as a conversation between publishers Lydie and Christian Riehl and Constance CEO, Jean Jacques Vallet, during their stay at Halaveli.

The concept developed into a journey for Nore and Meyer to each of our 7 resorts to discover just what it is that makes Constance so unique.

Where to buy ‘Constance: a lifestyle’

Discover the secret for yourself. Constance: a lifestyle is available now from Amazon or directly from the publishers Editions du Signe.
