Constance Tsarabanjina wins at Tatler Travel Awards 2014

Tatler magazine has recognised the unique laid back charm of Constance Tsarabanjina in its prestigious 2014 Travel Awards.

The magazine named the private Madagascan island resort of Tsarabanjina its Barefoot Adventure award winner.

Picking a selection of only 8 winners from luxury hotels and resorts across the globe, Tsarabanjina was joined on Tatler’s exclusive winners’ podium by the likes of Domaine de la Baume, France and Aman Canal Grande, Venice.

Luxury barefoot chic

Tsarabanjina’s mixture of castaway chic and Constance elegance makes it the ideal destination for those looking for beautiful beaches, palm-thatched beach villas and a splash of Madagascan adventure.

As the Tatler Travel Guide 2014 states:

“This is barefoot luxury at its best, the kind of desert-island experience that will stay with you, haunt you, make you realise that every beach from now on will not live up to this one.”

At Tsarabanjina, you can experience a world far removed from the one most of us live in day to day. From watching the local fishermen deliver the catch of the day on traditional wooden pirogues, to taking in the island’s stunning biodiversity on a guided nature walk, or diving waters previously unexplored.

The awards were presented this week at The Ritz, London by Tatler’s Travel Editor Francisca Kellett.

Who are the top contenders at MCB Tour Championship 2013?

Golf journalist Matt Cooper reports on the forthcoming MCB Tour Championship in Mauritius

It may not be branded quite as obviously as the European Tour’s Race to Dubai, but the conclusion of the Senior Tour has its own version of a yellow brick road and a destination every bit as thrilling at the main tour. The aim for the seniors is to make the season’s final hurrah in Mauritius – at Constance Belle Mare Plage for the MCB Tour Championship.

It’s an event which seals the deal for 2013. After three days of competition on the Legends course the elite field will have been separated and we will know not only the identity of the tournament champion, but the Order of Merit winner and Rookie of the Year will have been crowned too.

In the last three years the trophy has twice been lifted by South Africa’s David Frost, either side of a win by American Tom Lehman. Both men are major championship winners, proof that the cream rises to the top in this event and that’s good news for Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie, who has been a new addition to the senior ranks in 2013.

Known to golf fans across the globe as Monty, he completed 31 victories on the European Tour (only three men have ever earned more) and he wasted little time adding a first senior win, claiming the Travis Perkins Masters at Woburn during the summer, only his third start on the Senior Tour.

The 50-year-old Scot has become a regular member of the Sky Sports commentary team in recent years, but he retains a fierce competitive spirit and has joined the senior ranks with specific aims. Unlike Frost and Lehman he famously never won a major title, but he intends to correct that in the senior versions of those events.

With that in mind he is keen to end the year with another win, as will his fellow Ryder Cup captains Sam Torrance and Ian Woosnam who join him in the field alongside the reigning champion Frost.

In my time as a golf journalist I’ve been to many countries (from Finland to Turkey and Tenerife to Kazakhstan), but this will be my first visit to Mauritius and I’m buoyed by its reputation on tour as one of the best of the year. No-one seems quite sure what to rave about first – the golf course, the hotel, the location or the food.

They also look back to those past winners and remember one of golf’s oldest adages: quality venues reap quality winners. Follow #MCBGolf on social media to see if the trend continues.

The Englishman has pushed Denmark’s Steen Tinning into second place in the Order of Merit, promising to make the fight for the coveted John Jacobs Trophy at the MCB Championship a dramatic one.

The MCB Tour Championship is held at Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius in December and its prize fund of €400,000 could make the crucial difference in deciding which player gets to raise the trophy.

Wesselingh is reported as saying, ‘It’s great to be back on top of the Order of Merit with a nice lead. It’s going to be between me and Steen to win. I love to play in Mauritius and it’s going to be a very exciting event.’

Wesslingh won the Fubon Senior Open at the Miramar Golf and Country Club in Taiwan with a one shot victory over home favourite Le Wen-the.
