Asian tapas, Le Prince Maurice
The restaurants at Le Prince Maurice and Belle Mare Plage epitomise Constance’s culinary spirit combining traditional haute cuisine with the flavours and spices of the Indian Ocean.
Our menus are based around the very freshest local produce, whether it be fish caught that day or herbs and spices grown on the island. Across our restaurants we then prepare these delicacies using a variety of local and international culinary traditions.
Guests can indulge their taste for European fine dining one evening and then shake things up with a traditional Mauritian beach barbecue the next.

Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius
The magazine describes the resort’s vibe as, ‘Quiet and classy, but very understated, friendly and ultra relaxed – a beautiful setting where sophistication gets together with Mother Nature to create a harmonious holiday experience.’
The highlight of journalist Michael Melis’ visit was, he says, ‘Yoga every morning with the lovely Isabelle and the food… This place is gastro heaven!’
Constance Le Prince Maurice is proud to announce that it is extending the premium range of beauty treatments available at its sumptuous Spa de Constance to include the ancient art of Oriental hair removal.
Luxury spa treatments at Constance
This Eastern craft uses a traditional recipe of warmed water, honey, sugar and lemon to create a rich caramel which is then rolled into a ball. The ball is allowed to cool and rolled gently across the skin removing any unwanted hair.
Described as the optimal method of hair removal, this technique not only slows hair regrowth but leaves skin feeling softer and healthier than after a traditional waxing treatment.
