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.

Island romance of Mauritius

It’s not hard to see why Mauritius is consistently described as one of the most romantic places in the world.

Its stunning palm-lined white sand beaches and turquoise seas set against a dramatic mountain backdrop make it the perfect destination for a romantic Indian Ocean getaway.

That’s why at Constance Belle Mare Plage and Constance Le Prince Maurice we’ve woven romance into the very heart of what we offer.

We have staff who are attentive but discreet, restaurants which make the most of our breathtaking location, secluded areas for relaxation around the resort and accommodation built for seduction.

Constance Le Prince Maurice

The grown-up elegance of Le Prince Maurice sets the mood for quiet romance, designed to offer guest peace and seclusion. From it’s luxurious accommodation to its quiet beaches and infinity pool, there’s plenty to enthral here.

The resort also boasts one of the most romantic restaurants in the world, Le Barachois, serving freshly caught seafood. The romance begins as you wind your way through mangrove trees down a lantern-lit wooden gangplank to reach a restaurant which floats on the moonlit lagoon.

Even the pampering luxury of the Spa de Constance need not separate you from your loved one. Skincare specialist Sisley offers a special treatment for couples enticingly called ‘In the mood for love’.

Here are our Top 6 reasons why a holiday at Constance Le Prince Maurice and Belle Mare Plage will have you feeling like new again.

1. Immerse yourself in luxurious surroundings

Steal yourself away to the peaceful surroundings of the spa. Tucked away in a quiet spot at both resorts, these spaces effuse a sense of well-being from the moment you cross the threshold.

At Le Prince Maurice, you can enjoy the thermal pool, relax on loungers, indulge in a treatment or two, and get to work at the fitness centre.

At Belle Mare Plage, seek time out in the beautiful treatment rooms before enjoying a soak in the whirlpools, plunge pool, steam bath and sauna.

2. Restore your equilibrium

Take your pick from our extensive spa menu, and feel the tensions of daily life melt away.

The revamped spa at Le Prince Maurice is a haven for tired minds and bodies. The new Sisley spa offers a range of treatments using essential oils and plant extracts, combining massage techniques with the power of aromatherapy.

Choose from new signature treatments at Spa de Constance including Rum Spirit, a gentle body exfoliation using aged amber rum, sugarcane and cinnamon. Ayurvedic and Thai massage, Shiatsu and reflexology are also on the menu.

At Belle Mare Plage, popular treatments include volcanic clay body scrubs, nourishing herbal wraps, aromatherapy scalp massage, and Golfer’s tonic – the perfect ending to a long day on our championship golf courses.

3. Tailor made for you

Brice Nicham, world renowned footcare practitioner, introduced a range of treatments at Le Prince Maurice last month.

His much-sought after pedicures and posture treatments are tailor-made.

The unique ‘My Posture’ check up allows us to analyse any problem connected with a bad posture such as multiple pains in your knees and back and consequently to adapt efficient treatments tailored to your needs. Read more about Brice Nicham treatments at Constance Le Prince Maurice.

At Shiseido spa, Belle Mare Plage, the treatments are based on the belief that the beauty of a person’s skin, mind and body lies in the balance of Qi – the vital energy force that runs throughout the body.

Each facial and body treatment incorporates Western and Oriental meridian (channels of energy) massage styles, together with tsubo points stimulation.

3. Try a new approach to fitness

At Le Prince Maurice, fitness guru Isabelle Lamant has recently joined the team and is introducing guests to her unique blend of dance, yoga and gymnastics.

‘My sessions will allow guests to tone up while they are dancing, practice the Dynamic (Vinyasa) Yoga as well as learning how to relax tense muscles and weak joints.’ Read more about Isabelle Lamant’s approach to fitness.

At the fitness centre, we offer personalised training, power fit sessions, yoga, t’ai chi and tennis.

5. Best for spa breaks

Constance Le Prince Maurice has just been tipped as the best hotel for spa breaks on Mauritius by The Times newspaper. Quietly discreet and delightfully grown up, the resort is breaking new ground in delivering the luxury experience.

In last month’s Spa Secrets magazine, Le Prince Maurice was named best in Mauritius for classic beauty. ‘CLPM is a well-established, well-run, grown-up resort. Hollywood actress Claire Forlani is a repeat guest and this summer, after undergoing a major refurbishment, the resort looks better than ever.’

6. Rest easy and indulge

After all that pampering, treat yourself to some post-spa fun. Enjoy a fresh fruit smoothie by the beach or relax at the bar with a sun-downer cocktail before enjoying dinner at one of our restaurants. From the beachside Mediterranean La Spiaggia at Belle Mare Plage, to the elegant L’Archipel overhanging the infinity pool at Le Prince Maurice, choice is key.

At the end of the evening, retreat to your room where you can drift off to sleep in a state of total relaxation, to wake up refreshed and full of vitality – all set for another day in paradise where you can laugh, play and reconnect.

Dream wedding at Constance Le Prince Maurice

The high-end paradise resort of Constance Le Prince Maurice created the stunning backdrop for the wedding of David and Carina Billam.

David, an officer with the British Royal Navy, and his wife Carina were our second guests to check-in following the refurbishment at the resort.

When David and Carina started researching resorts for their forthcoming marriage they knew they wanted somewhere that exuded a discreet elegance and luxury.

What made us choose Le Prince Maurice
‘We chose Le Prince Maurice due to its understated luxury. From trawling the internet it appeared to be a discreet, luxurious and romantic location. The wedding package provided everything we needed as well as allowing for extras that we both wanted at a reasonable price.

In addition recommendations from travel agents were nothing but outstanding, it was sold to us as one of the top hotels in Mauritius – which it quite obviously is.’

On arriving at the resort the couple were struck by the warm welcome they received. ‘The lobby was incredibly impressive and we were instantly greeted by both the General Manager and the General Resort Manager, both of whom were so welcoming it gave us the impression that we were being welcomed by a long lost family.’

The staff made all the difference
The couple were delighted with the beauty of the resort but reserve their strongest praise for the staff who made their stay so enjoyable.

‘The hotel was truly reflected by the photos we viewed online, although in reality it’s far more beautiful. The location and scenery are amazing and certainly put a smile on your face each day but what keeps that smile there is everyone who works here. It feels like people are kind from the bottom of their hearts and it doesn’t make you feel that people are being wonderful purely because they are paid to be.’

Romance on the beach

The Billams were offered the opportunity to upgrade to a villa at Constance Belle Mare Plage, ‘Carina and I said no, purely for the fact that we would have missed the people at Le Prince Maurice.’

Quality in every sense
When the couple were at home dreaming about their wedding and honeymoon they imagined the luxury of ‘being able to enjoy each other’s company with no consideration for home and the stresses that work brings.’ And that is exactly what they found at Le Prince Maurice.

‘Every morning we woke up to the most incredible breakfast buffet. If the weather was promising we’d head to the beach and spend the hours tanning up and relaxing in the sun. In the evening we’d enjoy the incredible selection of food on offer – our personal favourite is the Asian tapas cooked by Li Junwei. On other days we visited the market in Flacq, the capital Port Louis and took a day trip to Ile Aux Cerfs.’

What they hoped for from their idyllic wedding location was a world of elegant luxury, ‘quality in every sense,’ which, as they describe, ‘is exactly what is delivered at Constance Le Prince Maurice.’
