Seychelles
In the Seychelles, April is known as the calmest, warmest month as the winds die down and start to change direction, making it an idyllic time to visit Constance Lémuria and Ephélia.

April to May is also considered one of the best times to explore the stunning marine life which teems through the waters of the archipelago – with water temperatures at a delightful 29ºC and visibility excellent at around 30 metres. This is also the beginning of the big game fishing season in the Seychelles.

Maldives
Easter is an ideal time to visit Moofushi and Halaveli in the Maldives as April is one of the ‘iruvai’ or ‘dry-season’ months. Guests can enjoy calm seas lapping against their luxury water villas, and dive and snorkel in water with temperatures of around 30ºC.

Mauritius
At the exclusive Le Prince Maurice and the vibrant Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius, there are 2 championship golf courses, superb spas, great selection of restaurants and the lure of stunning reefs off the East coast of the island.

Mauritius hot off the press

Mauritius is one of the most hotly tipped destinations in the Indian Ocean right now.

Recent articles in The Sunday Times, OK Magazine and Star Magazine all agree that the white-sand beaches, calm turquoise waters and elegant luxury accommodation make Mauritius a hard destination to beat.

OK and Star Magazine take a look at what attracts celebrities including Davina McCall and Ewan McGregor to the discreet and initmate setting of Constance Le Prince Maurice.

While Susan d’Arcy of The Sunday Times writes:

‘Ten years ago Mauritius was the go-to place in the Indian Ocean. Then the Maldives roundly eclipsed it. But now the island is fighting back… In truth, its beaches, though tropically terrific, are no match for the heart-stopping perfection of those in the Maldives. However, if you’re after a stress-free break, Mauritius fits the bill much better.’

D’Arcy goes on to write that further appeal lies in the ease of the transfer to Mauritian hotels and their extensive dining options as well as access to local culture.

Tom Lehman sounds a warning to MCB Tour Championship hopefuls

Tom Lehman has just ensured that there will be some sleepless nights among his challengers for the MCB Tour Championship next month as they strive to discover a way of overcoming him.

Lehman wins Charles Schwab Cup Championship

On his first visit to Mauritius a year ago, Lehman emerged victorious on the Legend course at the Constance Belle Mare Plage and he will arrive back on the island in arguably the best form of his life after destroying a quality field in the USPGA Champions Tour finale, the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, this weekend.

The tournament, just held on 1-4 November 2012 at the Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, is the American equivalent of the MCB Tour Championship.

The 53 year old Lehman left the likes of Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer, Jay Haas, Fred Funk, David Frost and Corey Pavin chasing his shadow with a final round five-under-par 65 that left him with a six-stroke advantage at the close.

The $440,000 that Lehman picked up for a thoroughly clinical performance secured his place at the top of the Champions Tour order-of-merit for the second year in succession, making him the first player in the Tour’s history to achieve the feat.

Englishman Roger Chapman, winner of two Senior Majors this year, finished a highly creditable fourth in the season’s rankings after a disappointing final day at Scottsdale.

But it was Lehman who occupied centre stage in the latter part of the tournament. He trailed on the first 2 days after his rounds of 68 and 62 were eclipsed by the 66 and 60 of Jay Haas. But the man from Minnesota began to exert his authority in round 3 with a 63 and started the last day a shot ahead of Couples and two in front of Haas.

That was as close as anyone got to Lehman in the final round as he strode majestically to victory.

In the process, he served notice of intent to anyone good enough or brave enough to take him on in Mauritius. Now there’s an invitation.
