Hasmita’s blog, joziliciousblog, about life in Johannesburg and her extensive travels is hugely popular.

This month she’s been raving to her readers about the friendly welcome and elegant luxury she experienced at Constance Lémuria and Constance Ephélia.

‘I’ve been fortunate enough to experience a few Indian Ocean islands. I’ve been to Zanzibar, Mozambique and Mauritius (twice!)… I stayed in 5 star properties on all the above islands, but both the setting and service of all these don’t even come close to what I experienced at Constance.’

An Excellent H0tel!

Constance Belle Mare Plage Hotel, Mauritius

“Five of us visited this hotel in Dec 2010 for just over a week on a half board basis. The food was excellent, the rooms were of high quality, and we made use of the facilities like sailing and scuba diving – The sole criticism is around the electronic door lock that caused some access problems over a 2 day period. I would unreservedly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing beach holiday. .”

Great hotel and golf!

“We loved the hotel and both golf courses. The buffet dinner had a fantastic variety. It’s true that the drinks were expensive, but that’s what you expect at a top class hotel. We took the larger room, but I think the smaller one would have been fine as well.”

“If you’re lying on the beach loungers, they will bring food and /or drink to you – just put the blue flag into your parasol pole, next to the number sign – this actually works very well.”

“We also enjoyed a couple of walks along the beach – South to the public beach to take photos of the sunset over the hotel, and also North to the One & Only Hotel, which is a really nice walk (if the tide is out!)”

Free, twice daily trip for both snorkeling and glass-bottomed boat.

“The hotel do a free twice-daily trip for both snorkelling and glass-bottomed boat. There are tennis courts, but you need to hire racquets and buy balls.”

We arrived early on the first day and jumped in a taxi to the supermarket

“While we were waiting for our room to be prepared when we arrived early on the first day, we jumped into a taxi and headed to the Winners Supermarket in Flacq (about 10 minute drive away). We paid 900 Rupees (£20) for a return trip but found it was well worth it. I’m not sure if you can haggle with the taxi drivers outside the hotel – I’ve heard differing opinions on that! We stocked up on water, soft drinks, wine and beer and that worked perfectly.”

My husband thoroughly enjoyed games of golf

“We had chosen the CBMP primarily because of the two golf courses attached to the hotel. Golf is free but you are obliged to take a buggy at 990 Rupees/ £21. My husband thoroughly enjoyed two games on each of the courses, and would return without question!”
