Secluded hotels and resorts with passion

At Constance we put passion at the heart of everything we do to create a luxury holiday experience with a soul of discovery.

Constance Lemuria, Seychelles

Constance Lemuria, Seychelles

Everything that goes into making your holiday so special is created by teams of dedicated staff who have one thing in common – a shared passion for what they do.

From the dedicated architects who first discovered our idyllic locations to our chefs striving to find the best ingredients, everyone at Constance is driven by this desire to bring guests the very finest experiences from around the world.

Idyllic Indian Ocean beaches

Our team at Constance began by travelling this beautiful region and selecting what we consider to be the most stunning, unspoilt beach locations to house our hotels.

We work hard with leading architects to ensure that our presence in these idyllic locations blends perfectly with the beautiful surroundings, creating as little impact on the environment as possible. We were rewarded for our efforts in 2011 with a Landscape Gold Award for our work creating Ephélia.

And we have just repeated this carefully imagined process for the relaunch of the stunning and secluded Tsarabanjina in Madagascar.

Ecological passion

Our passion goes beyond the grounds of our hotels, as we work to ensure the surrounding environment is protected for future generations.

Keen marine biologists at Halaveli are working on a reefscaping programme to repair coral that was damaged in the area by the tsunami of 2004.

While at Lémuria in the Seychelles, we have our very own turtle expert who overseas and protects the annual return of Hawksbill and Green Turtles to lay their eggs. Read more about turtles at Lemuria.

Fine wine and food from around the world

Tirelessly seeking out the very best wines from around the world our sommeliers, including Jerome Fauré, Head Sommelier, and Cedric Jacob at Halaveli, travel to vineyards and wine fairs across the New World and Old as part of their search.

So proud are our sommeliers of their precious finds that in each resort they are more than happy to invite you to wine tastings to discover these wines for yourself.  Read about the new state of the art wine cellar at Le Prince Maurice.

Sommeliers at Constance Hotels & Resorts

Discovering new wines

At Constance we take food very seriously and our chefs’ obsession with sourcing the best ingredients, and then using local flavours and spices to create something new and exciting, can be tasted in every dish we serve.

We celebrate this culinary passion every year in Mauritius with the Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival when we invite Michelin-star chefs to compete on teams with our local chefs – sharing ideas, inspiring and teaching.

Experts with passion

At Constance we are committed to sourcing the very best experiences for our guests and sometimes this means inviting top specialists in their field to join us and share their passion.

At Le Prince Maurice we are proud to have French fitness guru Isabelle Lamant inspiring guests with her holistic approach to fitness.

And celebrity podiatrist Brice Nicham has introduced his revolutionary approach to footcare at the hotel’s spa.
