At Constance Belle Mare Plage and Constance Le Prince Maurice in Mauritius and Constance Lémuria in the Seychelles this is exactly what you can expect as luxury and golf combine.

On the green

Set over the hills and forests of Praslin with views stretching across three perfect Seychellois beaches the course at Lémuria is often described as one of the most beautiful in the world, winning the World Travel Award for Leading Golf Course in the Indian Ocean 5 years running.

The Legend and Links shared by Belle Mare Plage and Le Prince Maurice are not only beautiful golf courses stretching across landscaped woodland with stunning beach views, but they are world class championship courses annually playing host to the MCB Championship.

Improve your game

Once a week golfers at Le Prince Maurice will receive a complimentary golf clinic session with one of our pros to iron out any kinks in your game.

Beyond the fairway

There’s more to a luxury golf holiday than just golf and at Constance there’s a range of other activities for you to try when you’re not on the golf course. Enjoy water sports, tennis, beach volleyball, fishing and sailing or just take it easy relaxing on our stunning beaches with an ice cool drink.

Anyone who doesn’t share your passion for the game will find plenty to do to occupy themselves while you’re swinging the clubs.

Pamper yourself at the sumptuous Sisley Spa at Le Prince Maurice or a Shiseido Spa at Lémuria and Belle Mare Plage, or seize the opportunity to try something new with a personal yoga or meditation session, tennis coaching or scuba diving courses amongst others.

The 19th hole

After a round there’s nothing better than sitting back with a cool glass of champagne and surveying the course you’ve just mastered. Nowhere is this quite such a treat as at The Seahorse restaurant and bar at Lémuria overlooking the stunningly landscaped, terraced course at the 11th hole.

The Swing at the Links’ course is the perfect place to enjoy a cold beer with friends and dissect every inch of the course while those playing the Legend can enjoy elegant Mauritian infused cuisine at the Deer Hunter looking over the famous course.
