The festival was as big a success as ever, giving our island chefs the opportunity to hone their craft even further and showcasing magnificent Mauritian culture and cuisine.

  1. Ready for your babymoon?

You’re familiar with honeymoons, but have you heard of babymoons? In May, we launched our first babymoon package, designed to give mums-to-be the break they deserve before the arrival of their baby.

  1. Continuing conservation

One of our priorities is to protect the natural beauty of the islands that play host to our hotels. This year at Constance Moofushi Maldives, reef scapers were build and introduced into the marine environment to encourage coral growth, keeping the magnificent reefs healthy and thriving.
