Beach and infinity pool at Constance Le Prince Maurice

Guests at Constance Le Prince Maurice enjoy 60 hectares of beautiful tropical gardens bordering the still waters of the lagoon.

The resort is brimming with quiet spaces decked out with enormous sofas, chaise longues and sun loungers.

Grab a book and head to these 5 spots at Constance Le Prince Maurice, where you can indulge your literary senses, and enjoy the peace and stillness.

 

The beach

Here you’ll find fine white sand, calm turquoise waters, palm trees, super-comfortable sun loungers and first class service from the ‘sand butlers’. The beach is just a stone’s throw from the junior suites and villas. The beach gets the sun all day, and you can even watch the sun set out to the West from the comfort of your sun lounger.

 Looking East over the bay

Tucked away behind the junior suites, you’ll find this tranquil spot overlooking the easterly side of the resort. Hidden away from the restaurants and bars, the only sound here is of the sea and a gentle breeze.

The Pool Bar

The infinity pool is breathtakingly beautiful, warm and comes complete with a bar that you can swim up to. Take a seat at the water’s edge, ring the bell for service and soak up the views across the pool. The pool bar is warmed by the afternoon sun, making it perfect for languid moments when all you want to do is pause and enjoy.

The Library

If you’re hankering after a more traditional space where you can put your feet up and get stuck into your literary tome, head to the library. It’s air-conditioned and furnished with comfy arm chairs and shelves of books, newspapers and DVDs to borrow.

Laguna Bar

Flanking the infinity pool is the Laguna Bar. Fans whirr above huge chairs and sofas furnished in purples and reds, and the polished wooden floor feels super-luxurious. There are no walls or windows along the side of the bar so you can enjoy uninterrupted views across the pool and out to sea. If there’s a downpour of summer rain, head here – enjoy the chill out music and sound of water from the pool, order drinks and snacks from the bar, and get reading.
