Fabulous hillside villa

Constance Ephelia, Seychelles, together with EarthQuest Management Consultants have been awarded the prestigious Gold Award at the South African Landscape Industry awards ceremony, in recognition for superior landscape construction.

The monumental project of turning the idea of Constance Ephelia into reality was a huge undertaking. Ephelia is situated on a stretch of pristine beach, surrounded by 120 hectares of rare tropical vegetation.

The resort was designed by esteemed landscape design company, Colin Okashimo & Associates in Singapore. But it was due to EarthQuest Management Consultants that the spectacular design vision became reality. Key masterminds behind the project were:

  • Renzo Derksent supported by Garrith Brokensha and Brian Brigilia
  • Alex de Maroussem, who sourced and propagated all 195,000 plants at the resort

The final result of this mammoth undertaking is nothing short of spectacular.
