Constance Moofushi, Maldives

British Airways High Life magazine and website has raved about the excellent diving and laid back atmosphere at Constance Moofushi.

In her review Ianthe Butt described the 5* Maldivian resort as a place without stress, where ‘nothing is too much trouble for the staff’.

She says, ‘With soft sand on which to wander, plush rooms, communal areas with collapse-into-me couches, Moofushi is a truly relaxing place to stay.
When you leave you won’t step onto that seaplane, it’ll be more of a drift.’

A keen scuba diver, Ianthe Butt also noted the world class diving around the resort and the thrill of watching the marine life from the ‘gorgeous space’ of her water villa.

Chefs at Constance Le Prince Maurice have merged Asian specialities like sushi, noodles and dim sum to create a unique ‘Asian tapas’ menu.

The blending of Asian flavours in light, delicious bite-sized treats served against the laid-back poolside vibe of the Laguna Bar has proved hugely popular with guests.

Originally the inspiration of Chef Li Junwei, who described the food prepared at the Asian Tapas Corner as, ‘a unique concept where we serve sushi, noodles, dim sum, Asian tapas and desserts all prepared in front of the guests.’

Guests can enjoy a light lunch with views over the infinity pool to the beach beyond or a sumptuous evening treat with cocktails or whiskey (yes, it’s a delicious pairing) in the evening, Asian Tapas is a light, delicious option.

Some Asian Tapas treats to try:

The luxurious, elegant setting of Le Prince Maurice with its fine dining restaurants and emphasis on wellbeing is the perfect place to kick off your Fast Diet or to give it an extra boost.

She even recommends a range of lower-calorie cocktails such as the ‘skinny mojito’ and ‘sea breeze over lots of ice’.

As part of the Kickstart Fast Diet program there are also some key spa treatments recommended by Mimi to help optimise the diet’s effect such as the anti-cellulite treatment at the hotel’s award-winning Sisley Spa.
