VIP treatment – presidential villas at Constance

Presidential villa and beach at Lemuria

Presidential villa and beach at Lemuria

If you’re looking for somewhere truly special to take your clan, our presidential villas are just the ticket.

Nestled away in a quiet corner of our resorts, each unique villa offers total privacy and seclusion.

They’re the deluxe option if you’re looking for grown-up loveliness in a self-contained setting.

Looking out across the Indian Ocean, each villa is set in its own garden with at least one private pool or in the case of the villa at Constance Lémuria, 3 swimming pools situated at different levels.

Beautiful interiors

The interiors are wonderfully luxurious, with huge comfy beds, polished wood or tiled floors, oversized sofas and enormous windows for enjoying unbroken views of the ocean.

Villa masters

Each villa comes with a dedicated villa master to look after you during your stay, making sure your holiday is tailor-made to your desires.

Constance Lemuria

On the trail of the Dodo

Natural history lovers, and fans of the weird and wonderful should head to the National History Museum in Port Louis, Mauritius to see the most complete dodo skeleton in the world.

Mauritius was once home to the flightless Dodo bird. It became extinct in the 1680s, only 80 years after Europeans arrived on the island.

It’s thought that the Dodo was easy prey for the animals that were introduced by explorers – dogs, pigs, cats and rats.

Still today, very little is known about the Dodo. Mare aux Songes, in Mauritius, is the site of the most significant dodo bone findings in the world. In 2005, a team of Dutch-Mauritian researchers found many bones including a rare dodo beak. The findings are believed to be at least 2000 years old.

If your children are hankering after slides and swings, our kids’ clubs for children aged 4-12 years offer play areas, as well as activities like cookery, dancing, painting, craft and games.

If you want to spend more time on the beach, our sand butlers will bring you drinks and snacks when you want them. Palm fringed parasols over comfy sun loungers provide plenty of shade, while the sea that gently laps the shore is paddle-friendly.

Jungle adventures
It’s also worth heading out to discover some of your Indian Ocean island – children love to play explorer and these islands are teeming with wildlife. Head to organised wilderness parks or if you’re up for an adventure, go for a hike to find rare plants and animals.
