Set yourself free in the Indian Ocean

The stunning islands of the Indian Ocean are the ideal grown-ups’ playground with a climate of warm sunshine and clear waters.

Constance Hotels & Resorts in Mauritius, Maldives, Seychelles and Madagascar offer adventure and excitement a-plenty so you can rediscover the wonder of trying something new along with a host of adrenalin fuelled activities.

Revive your spirit of adventure

Reconnect with that supercharged feeling you get when you do something for the first time. Trying something new gives us a burst of energy and enthusiasm that we carry with us long after the experience itself.

Challenge yourself to try new things whether that be wine tasting in the still water off Constance Moofushi, learning traditional Seychellois dance at Constance Ephélia or learning to cook Mauritian food from our top chefs at Constance Le Prince Maurice.

Get your adrenalin pumping

If you’re looking for something a more fast-paced why not try pitting your wits against the ocean with some big game fishing or catamaran sailing.

Thrill-seekers will enjoy speeding across the ocean on water skis or wakeboards or letting the wind take them on windsurfs and kite surfs.

Scuba diving in the Indian Ocean

For those who haven’t scuba dived before, the adventure below the waves awaits you in reefs teeming with vibrant marine life and qualified instructors on hand to guide you.

In the waters off Constance Tsarabanjina you can discover reefs previously unexplored with a kaleidoscope of colourful marine life.

Even experienced divers can try something new with night dives available at Le Prince Maurice, Belle Mare Plage and Ephelia and heart-stopping shark dives at Moofushi and Halaveli.

Take time out for you

In the hectic modern world we can be so busy rushing about for other people that we don’t have time to think about our own needs. Why not make this the summer that you kick-start a new program of wellbeing for you?

For sports fans why not book a session with one of our tennis coaches or take up golf and learn from the pros at our Marc Farry Golf Academy, based on our championship golf courses in Mauritius at Belle Mare Plage and Le Prince Maurice.

Let one of our personal trainers introduce you to one-on-one yoga sessions, or learning how to meditate and breathe to create a greater sense of inner calm.

Last year the trend was for staycations, but 2013 is seeing a revival in people seeking adventure beyond their home shores. Make it the year that tried something new.

    April to June is the perfect time for fishing the idyllic, teaming waters around Constance Tsarabanjina in Madagascar. Here are our top 5 reasons for game fishing in the area.

    1. The experience of a lifetime
    Pit yourself against the great giants of the sea as you cast a line into waters teeming with exotic sea-life. Feel the sun on your face as you explore northern Madagascar’s deserted bays, headlands, rocky outcrops and remote islands. The beauty of the location combined with the high density of big game fish means fishing here is like nowhere else on earth.

    2. Perfect conditions
    The ideal climate and the calm, clear waters off Madagascar’s northwest coast with few shore breaks ensure visibility is extremely high. It makes it the perfect place for first timers and experienced fishermen alike.

    3. High density waters
    Game fishing in the area is still a fairly new activity so the density of fish including giant trevally, yellowfin and dogtooth tuna, kingfish, barracouda, wahoos, sailfish and Marlins is high. From April through to July over 100 sailfish a day, many more than 100lbs, have been seen near the surface.
