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’.

Top 5 reasons to play golf in Mauritius

Two 18-hole championship golf courses set in an idyllic island location is as close to holiday paradise as most golfers can imagine.

Golf courses at Constance Belle Mare Plage

Golf at Constance Hotels, Mauritius

Here are our top 5 reasons to play golf in Mauritius.

1. The courses

Situated at Constance Belle Mare Plage, the 18-hole, par 72 Legend Golf Course was designed by South African golf champion Hugh Baiocchi. It’s built to USPGA specifications using tif dwarf grasses.

David Frost, former MCB Open Champion, describes the course, ‘ At the Legend you can ensure a velvet-soft playing surface. The course has some great, challenging tee shots and under pressure you need to hit the fairways. From there it is target golf to the pins as well.’

Also located at Belle Mare Plage is the 18-hole Links Golf Course, par 71. Designed by award-winning course designer Rodney Wright and professional golfer and commentator Peter Allis, the Links includes a practice fairway to help you warm up before your game.

2. The Golf Academy

At our professionally run Marc Farry Golf Academy, you have the opportunity to improve your game significantly during your golf holiday with Constance. We provide individual or group classes with our resident professionals at both courses.

Whatever your level the Marc Farry Academy Teaching Method will help you improve your grip, posture, alignment and ball position. We even provide lessons for kids so you can start to train the next generation of champions.

3. Après golf spa

Every golfer knows there’s more to golf than getting out there and hitting a ball which is why Spa de Constance offers a range of treatments and exercise programmes designed to loosen tensed muscles and soothe tired minds.

The popular golfer’s tonic offers a 45 minute stimulating massage  which aids in relaxing and preparing muscles, preventing injuries, improving suppleness and reducing the risk of inflammation before and after the golfing activities.

4. Location

Interview with our first guests to check into Le Prince Maurice

Our first guests to check into the newly refurbished Constance Le Prince Maurice were Jacky and Pierrette Beasse.

Mr and Mrs Beasse at Constance Le Prince Maurice

Having travelled extensively across Europe from their home in Champagne Ardenne, France they had never flown by plane before visiting  Le Prince Maurice in September.

Why Constance Le Prince Maurice?

‘We have visited many other European countries but this is the first time we have travelled by plane. We waited a long time because we wanted to be sure that when we did we would experience the best.’

Planning the trip of a lifetime is not easy and Mrs Beasse wanted to be sure that they got exactly what they were looking for.

‘I looked everywhere on the internet, I went on different websites such as Trip Advisor as well as discussing different destinations with people on forums. We also had friends who came here and recommended Le Prince Maurice hotel.’

They weren’t disappointed. ‘We have many words to describe the hotel such as ‘luxurious’, ‘elegant’, ‘serene’. While we have been here we have been so relaxed it’s been like floating on a cloud. From the moment we arrived we were well taken care of and received a great welcome, much better than we had ever experienced in a French hotel – in fact they could learn a thing or two from Le Prince Maurice.’

The couple made the most of their time in Mauritius. ‘We are enjoying the beach and the boathouse, where we went for a ride on the glass-bottom boat. We also enjoyed the new swimming pool – we were alone so it was even better. We have taken walks in the beautiful gardens as well as several outings.’

And the best thing about the holiday…

They find it hard to sum up what part of their holiday they have most enjoyed. ‘Our suite, the décor of the hotel, its charm and its surroundings are all so beautiful. We have really enjoyed the calm of the hotel and especially that of the restaurant L’Archipel. We would also like to say a special word for Linda who was the first person to serve us on our arrival, she knew exactly how to make us comfortable and we really appreciated it.’
