At Constance, we think we’re turning the perfect night’s sleep into an art form.

Resorts Le Prince Maurice, Halaveli and Ephélia offer guests a pillow menu so you can select the perfect pillow to ease you into a night of restful sleep. Whether you sleep on your back or side, prefer support or to sink into luxurious comfort, we aim to provide the perfect pillow for you. So in addition to the goose down, memory and support pillows, we offer aroma, buckwheat, maternity and cuddle pillows.

And at Halaveli, we also offer hypo allergenic natural down feather duvets.

Bathing ceremony

Our bathing ceremony is also a favourite with guests, where you can enjoy a romantic aroma-filled bath by candle light to help induce a blissful night’s sleep.

Golf: Mark Mouland to go fishing for Champions Tour glory

Welshman Mark Mouland, the first player to win back-to-back Mauritius Golf Open titles, has earned himself a regular place on the lucrative USPGA Champions Tour next year.

Mouland has been a regular visitor to Constance Belle Mare Plage for many years and followed his first win in 2002 by successfully defending his title 12 months later.

The 51-year-old former European Tour player – who has often indulged in his passion for big-game fishing while on the island – joined the senior ranks last year and scored his maiden title success, in the Portuguese Senior Open, a few weeks before flying out from England for the inaugural MCB Tour Championship.

This year Mouland made a limited number of appearances on the Champions Tour after winning a conditional card at the 2011 National Qualifying Tournament. Vut an outstanding performance in this year’s gruelling event in Florida earned Mouland third place with only the top-five finishers being guaranteed full playing rights for 2013.

Of the other MCB Tour Championship entries this year, Sweden’s Anders Forsbrand gained conditional exemption for next season while Australian Peter Fowler and Englishman Barry Lane finished high enough in the final placings to give themselves opportunities of securing a limited number of appearances.

Time to play – escape to the Indian Ocean

At Constance we understand how important it is to take time out to kick back and relax. Whether you enjoy listening to a DJ spinning tunes, dining in elegant surroundings, chilling out by the beach or deep-sea diving, at Constance we’ve got it covered.

Get active

If you’re looking for a physical challenge all our resorts offer a raft of activities including waterskiing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, catamaran and laser sailing, diving and beach volleyball.

In the Seychelles, Constance Ephélia even challenges guests with a natural climbing wall and zip wires.

If golf is your passion then we’ve got the perfect playground for you at our two 18-hole championship golf courses in Mauritius shared by Le Prince Maurice and Belle Mare Plage, and the only golf course in the Seychelles at Lémuria.

Enjoy some fun golfing frolics at the Belle Mare Plage clubhouse where, during our golf evenings, guests are challenged to putt the ball from the bar.

Music and laid-back fun

Sometimes playing can be more about chilling out than sport and adventure, and for those times we offer a combination of good music, stunning locations and an atmosphere of laid-back fun.

Dance the night away under the stars with our resident DJ at Constance Halaveli’s Jahaz Lounge on a Saturday night, while at Le Prince Maurice guests will soon be able to enjoy the new floating bar at Le Barachois with cocktails, DJs and more.

Live life on the beach

Playing hard can be tiring so why not take it down a notch with a barefoot dining experience right on the beach – eating good food outdoors can really feed the soul.

At Tsarabanjina and Moofushi we offer guests a chance to unwind with films on the beach on selected evenings. Grab a sun lounger and chill in front of a modern classic.

Keep the laid back vibe going with a beach massage on the beautiful Anse Georgette at our Lémuria resort, or on the rocks above the sea at Tsarabanjina, Madagascar.

If a spa is your way to play, come and let us look after you in any of our Spa de Constance, available in all resorts.

Constance Halaveli and Moofushi named top luxury resorts in Maldives

Constance Halaveli and Constance Moofushi have been named as top luxury resorts in the Maldives by A Luxury Travel Blog this month.

Constance Halaveli, Maldives

Constance Halaveli, Maldives

‘Sparkling with a thoroughly-deserved 6* reputation, the Constance Halaveli Resort is tucked away in its own private hideaway, perfect for a romantic getaway or a relaxing family holiday…

…Casual elegance is what Constance Moofushi Resort is all about. Deliberately veering away from what’s fashionable in favour of a more timeless, natural luxury, the resulting atmosphere here is peaceful and relaxed: wander around shoeless between your villa and the stunning beach and surroundings, or relax on your private hammock.’
