Travel writers and reporters gathered at top locations in the three cities to celebrate the unveiling of the new Constance Hotels & Resorts’ brand.

Amidst an evening of champagne and canapés at London’s stylish W hotel Andrew Milton, Chief Operations Officer of Constance Hotels talked about the values that lie behind the brand, and how our luxury hotels and resorts will now be grouped into two collections: ‘unique resort experiences’ and ‘ultimate hotel experiences’.

The idea behind this, he explained, is to make it easier for you to choose the perfect luxury holiday experience for them. Inspired by passion, our team travels the world to seek out the finest things in life, so you can experience them too when you visit any of our seven resorts in the Indian Ocean.
