Looking for inspiration for where to eat on your next Indian Ocean holiday? Take a look at some of the restaurants at our hotels and resorts in Mauritius, Maldives, Seychelles and Madagascar.
Constance’s diary of exciting food and wine events is filling up with visitors from some of the world’s top kitchens as well as leading winemakers from across the continents.
Guests at Constance Moofushi last week were treated to a wine dinner at the resort’s Blue Lounge restaurant hosted by Australian winemaker Geoff Krieger of Brokenwood Wines.
With over 30 years experience in the wine industry in Australia, including 10 at Brokenwood where he is General Manager, Krieger was more than happy to share his experiences and expertise with guests at the luxurious Maldives resort.
Our chefs worked with Krieger to create a menu delicately balanced to perfectly pair the food with the best of Brokenwood’s wines.
Highlights of the wine menu and its pairings included:
- Terrine of foie gras, fig marmalade and apple salad paired with Brokenwood Oaky Creek Road Semillon (Semillon 2004)
- Seared scallops, papaya salsa, cucumber and mint shooter paired with Brokenwood Unwooded Chardonnay (Chardonnay 2007)
- Grilled Maldivian jobfish, cauliflower puree and chorizo paired with Brokenwood Pinot Noir Beechworth (Pinot Noir 2012)
- Brie and truffle tian, camembert samosa, pear and raisin chutney paired with Brokenwood Cricket Pitch (Sauvignon Blanc/Semillion 2011)
- Mango and passion fruit parfait, coconut sorbet and orange tuille paired with Brokenwood Semillon Sticky Wicket (Semillon 2008)

Retreat to a castaway island in the Indian Ocean for an all-out escape from the pace of everyday living and gain the ultimate barefoot beach experience.
The small, remote islands of Constance Tsarabanjina, Madagascar and Constance Moofushi, Maldives exude a laidback, barefoot vibe where you can indulge in warm sunshine, white sand and crystal clear waters by day, before enjoying balmy nights under star-filled skies.
The all-inclusive Cristal package means you can enjoy everything that’s on offer, without sparing a thought for needing to settle the final bill at the end of your holiday.
Stay in a beach or water villa
At Tsarabanjina each secluded beach villa has its own hammock hung in the shade of the trees, perfect for taking time out to cool off from the sun and let time drift away.
The villas themselves exude a rustic charm with palm thatch, Malagasy crafts and woven furniture. We’ve thrown in a few modern day luxuries to make sure this is barefoot living at its finest including air-conditioning, vast beds and mini bars stocked with a superb selection of drinks and snacks.
At Moofushi the laid back charm of the beach villas’ are echoed in the palm-thatched water villas, accessed by wooden jetties warmed by the sun. The villas’ expansive wooden terraces have their own steps leading down to the clear waters of the lagoon where you can swim and snorkel.
Feel your pulse slow to the more gentle rhythm with a range of spa treatments that reflect the environment you’re in.
The therapy rooms at Moofushi are open sided so that the ocean view is part of the experience – so much so that we’ve even put glass panels in the floor so you can see marine life passing by beneath you.
At Tsarabanjina we’ve gone a step further with an indoor and outdoor natural spa set on a secluded shelf of ocean rock. Watch the sun set while breathing in the scent of natural locally-sourced remedies and oils during a massage and feel reconnected with yourself and the world around you.
Fish for your dinner
At Tsarabanjina and Moofushi try fishing in the traditional way, on a Malagasy pirogue or Maldivian dhoni. Bring your catch back to shore and our chefs will prepare it for you so that you can experience the joy of eating your own freshly caught fish, with your barefeet in the sand.
Castaway by night
At Moofushi’s Manta bar, lounge on beanbags on a beach lit by natural torchlight while enjoying a glass of chilled champagne, or watch a classic movie under the stars.
For those seeking true Robinson Crusoe-style seclusion a private dinner for two on your very own sandbank at Moofushi will make you feel that you have truly escaped the hustle and bustle of the modern world.
And at Tsarabanjina, fresh seafood and vegetables bought at the local daily market are served in the main beachside restaurant, combining a boutique boho feel with delectable food and wine. Then walk along the shoreline to the quiet and intimacy of your beach villa.
