Fit and well: how to improve your fitness

As the season begins to change this month it’s the perfect time to make a fresh start and take a new approach to your health and wellbeing.

Yoga & meditation on the beach

Follow the current trend away from the doctrine of thinness to a more holistic approach to fitness, which suggests that keeping fit and eating healthily will make you feel stronger, healthier and calmer of mind.

What’s on offer at Constance Hotels & Resorts

September is the perfect month to seize the opportunity to readjust your regime and embrace this new approach.

Take a holiday at one of our 7 hotels and resorts in the Indian Ocean where you can combine the feel-good factors of bright sunshine, fresh air and idyllic locations with fresh, healthy food, a raft of outdoor activities, fitness suites and personal trainers.

Healthy fresh food

At Constance we believe that great cuisine begins with the freshest ingredients, locally sourced and organic where possible, carefully prepared in the healthiest ways.

With our island locations fresh seafood is at the heart of our menu, as are the very freshest fruits and vegetables which make any resolution to eat healthily not only easy to follow but deliciously satisfying.

At Constance Tsarabanjina you can watch the local fishermen bringing in the daily catch from the beach to be served at your table and at Constance Le Prince Maurice our chefs take trips daily to the local market to buy fruit and vegetables picked that morning along with the freshest herbs and spices.

Get in shape

Our personal trainers can develop a fitness program just for you built around your needs and the time you want to dedicate to it.

Trainers are on hand throughout your stay to check your progress and give advice. They will then design a program of diet and exercise for when you leave so you can continue your good work when you get home.

At Constance Lémuria you can improve your fitness in the stunning surroundings of Praslin with health walks around the island, sunset walks to the beautiful Anse Georgette or a sunset beach work out.

Or reconnect with your inner spirit with sunrise yoga sessions on the beach at Le Prince Maurice and Constance Ephélia.

At our hotels and resorts you can try waterskiing, windsurfing, kite surfing, wakeboarding, big game fishing or catamaran sailing.

At Constance Ephélia you can push yourself to the limit with rock climbing, or improve your golf game on the championship courses at Le Prince Maurice and Constance Belle Mare Plage or the stunning 18-hole golf course at Lémuria.

What to look for in a ‘babymoon’

The babymoon is an opportunity for a last hurrah of sumptuous, grown-up living before you enter the exciting world of life with a baby. In other words it can be a time to indulge in the finer things – a luxury beach resort, spa treatments, romantic moments, and divine dining.

With locations across the Indian Ocean, Constance Hotels & Resorts are proving a popular choice for a secluded 5* getaway for just the two of you. With our emphasis on warm, attentive service we ensure that your last trip away pre-parenthood will create memories that last a lifetime, and many a baby-induced sleepless night.

Make it a romantic break for two

Savour your time together in the romantic getaway resorts of Moofushi and Tsarabanjina. Relax in the laidback vibe of these barefoot resorts where secluded hammocks swing outside your villa and it’s easy to find a quiet spot to spend time alone together.

Lounge on the beach watching movies under the stars and eating food fresh from the ocean.

Or splash out and enjoy the ultimate luxury of a beachfront villa with your own private pool at Le Prince Maurice or a water villa floating over a lagoon with its own infinity pool at Halaveli.

If you’re looking for total romantic seclusion why not try a hillside villa at Ephelia, where you can lounge in your own infinity pool overlooking glorious views of the Seychelles.

Indulge in 5* luxury

It can be difficult to get a good night’s sleep when you’re pregnant but at Constance we will do our best to ensure that’s exactly what you get.

At Le Prince Maurice and Halaveli we will draw you a fragrant candlelit bath for you to relax in before climbing between Egyptian cotton sheets, in vast beds. Select the perfect pillow from our menu. If getting comfortable is an issue just let us know and we’ll provide as many pillows as you need to get a good night’s sleep.

Service has always been at the centre of what we do at Constance so whatever you’re needs, or cravings, we’ll do our best to make sure you have everything you need for a perfect holiday.

Delicious, healthy food

Eating for two means making sure that what you eat is fresh and healthy for you and your baby. At Constance the 5* chefs use only the best, fresh local ingredients to create sumptuous dishes across all our restaurants.

Whether you want to indulge in elegant fine dining or just feel like a smoothie and salad by the beach, you can be sure that everything is prepared with the utmost care from the very best fresh ingredients.

For a truly memorable dining experience we can even organise dinner on a secluded section of beach or under the stars in your own villa. At Moofushi you can dine by torchlight on your own secluded sandbank.
