Luxury service: reuniting teddies with the children who love them

What people look for in a luxury holiday is as varied as the guests we welcome to Constance.

Reuniting teddies with the children who love them - all part of our luxury service

Reuniting teddies with the children who love them – all part of our luxury service

While an idyllic location tops many a wish list, it’s the quality of personal service that can really make or break a holiday.

So when our youngest guests leave a beloved cuddly friend behind we make it our mission at Constance to reunite these teddies, bunnies or blankets with the children who love them as quickly as possible.

When Carlotta left her ‘blankie’ at Constance Halaveli her mum sent us an email to tell us her daughter couldn’t get to sleep without her much loved blanket. We deployed our laundry department to hunt down the missing blanket – we soon found it and quick sharp sent it back to Carlotta, much to her delight.

Five year old Evi recently left her pink teddy at Halveli. We found the teddy in the room after she and her family had left, and so we’ve sent teddy on an adventure to be reunited with Evi.

Meanwhile at Constance Le Prince Maurice our staff gave a baby guest a Prince Maurice teddy as a memento of his time with us. A few years later we received an email from his mother saying it had become his favourite teddy, but through years of love he had almost worn it out.

We can’t resist a tale of love, and so we posted a new teddy to our young guest, a new friend from Mauritius.

Inspired by our passion to create experiences that our guests will remember forever, we also haven’t lost sight that sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference.

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.

Night diving in the Maldives at Constance Moofushi

Night diving in the Maldives

Night diving in the Maldives

Night dives are a unique experience for many divers, enabling even the most experienced to see the ocean in a new way.

Few places offer such stunning night diving as at Constance Moofushi, located in the Maldives’ South Ari Atoll, and regarded as one of the best diving spots in the world.

What you’ll see by night

At night, diving in shallow waters, with only the light of a dive torch, the multitude of colours from the reef and the life it supports becomes even more apparent, as it stands out against the blackness.

The atmosphere on the reef at night is also very different from that experienced during the day. Predators go hunting, prey flees while other fish sleep quietly in holes or crevices.

Night divers are more likely to see certain species such as the Moray eel or octopuses emerging from their holes to hunt at night.

Some sea creatures use bioluminescence as a defence mechanism by ejecting glowing chemicals from their body to ward off danger. These appear as clouds of light under water, creating a beautiful sight for the night diver.
