Protecting the environment at Constance Hotels

At Constance Hotels, we are committed to protecting the stunning natural environments that surround each of our unique resorts, and the rare endemic species that can be found there.

We work closely with local environmental groups to conserve the exceptional landscape and wildlife for today’s visitors and future generations to come.

Here are some of the measures we’ve taken recently:

Design and build of Constance Moofushi – opened in November 2010

Known as the Jewel island – the island’s butterfly design and daring architecture has been developed by Jean-Michel d’Unienville (Mauritius) and Marc Hertrich (France). Careful consideration has been taken to preserve the environment through efficient and non-polluting materials.

The focus is on luxury without being flashy and the beauty of the island location is paramount. Find out more about what we did at The Jewel Island: Constance Moofushi

Enhancing biodiversity in the Seychelles

We are furthering our commitment to the environment by enhancing conservation of Biodiversity at Port Launay next to the Constance Ephelia Resort in the Seychelles.

We are working in partnership with Sustainability for Seychelles (S4S) and aim to:

  • take pro-active measures to improve the coordinated management of the fragile mangrove ecosystem adjacent to the Constance Ephelia Resort site – balancing development with the preservation of the wetland area.
  • start looking at co-management of other adjacent natural areas such as the resort grounds and Port Launay Marine Park

Turning tap water to bottled water at Constance Halaveli

To eliminate the need to ship in bottled water to our luxury Maldives resort, Constance Halaveli, we have recently installed our own water bottling plant. The plant purifies tap water to mineral quality. Read more about our sustainable approach at Constance Halaveli.

Serving local seasonal produce

Our restaurants serve local and seasonal produce, perfectly suited to the climate and environment surrounding each luxury hotel. Brimming with flavour and beautifully presented, guests can dine on local fish, vegetables and fruits.

Customer Reviews: the team were absolutely wonderful

Our guests give us a lot of feedback about our hotels, resorts and the luxury experience we offer. We thought it would be a good idea to share this feedback with you if you’re planning a special trip:

The hotel is located on the best part of the island

Luxury beach holiday: the best part of the island

“The hotel is located on the best part of the island (in our opinion – after driving around the island for a day we concluded that we were definitely on the best location).”

I treated myself to a massage while I was there

Treat yourself to a massage

I also treated myself to a massage while I was there. There are actually two different spas – the hotel’s own one, and the Shiseido one which I tried – but I’m sure they’d both be lovely. Just depends on which treatment you fancy.

The wedding co-ordinator and team were absolutely wonderful

“We chose this hotel after a lot of searching to get married in. The wedding coordinator and team were absolutely wonderful, you could not fault them. Special mention to the photographer they appointed, he was excellent. We had a minor problem with the time of the wedding and as a gift they gave us a night in private villa with butler service.”

It is certainly their fine dining restaurant… the food and service was top notch

Fine dining restaurants and excellent food!

“The Blue Penny cafe is actually far from being a cafe! It is certainly their fine dining restaurant – not cheap, but food and service was top notch. We treated ourselves to one meal here – however, look out for theme nights as they are excellent value. They only seat 40, so get in quick for those – they are snapped up!”
