3. Fun, games and discoveries

Staying fit on a luxury holiday doesn’t have to be about spending hours in the gym. Feel your energy levels soar as your body drinks in the invigorating freshness of tropical air, cool salt water and the gentle sunshine of the Indian Ocean.

Play tennis, swim in the ocean or swimming pool, try ocean fishing or water sports. Experience the rush of achievement in climbing the granite rocks at Ephélia then the rush of a zip line through the treetops. Try some morning yoga or take a sunset walk along some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

5. Amazing food and juices

Savour the tastes of the Indian Ocean with fresh, healthy seafood caught daily and grilled with a hint of local spice. Eat a light lunch of sea-fresh sushi or salad under the shade of the trees. Indulge in local cuisine cooked by top class Constance chefs. Enjoy sweet tropical fruits plucked straight from the trees and blended into healthy drinks, juices and smoothies.

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.

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.”

Top 5 tips for long haul flights

Arrive at your hotel feeling refreshed with our top tips for long haul travel from Sophie Demaret our Spa Manager at Constance Le Prince Maurice.

1. Before flying, use compression socks. They may not look sexy but they’re effective and will go unnoticed.

2. When you’re on the plane, avoid crossing your legs as it restricts your circulation.

3. During the flight, get up and move around. Taking just a few steps can help to revive your blood circulation.

4. Rub your ankles and then rotate them, first one way and then the other.

5. Massage your feet with a tennis ball that you roll under each foot – you’ll feel the benefits immediately.

Finally, once you’ve arrived at your hotel, head to the spa. At Le Prince Maurice, you can enjoy a cold shower on your legs, regenerate yourself with a sandalwood and cane sugar scrub, then follow it up with a 45 minute reflexology session. It will leave your legs feeling light and refreshed.

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.
