Director Magazine describes Moofushi and Halaveli as ‘luxury escapism’

In a glowing review of our Maldives resorts, Lisa Stokes writing in Director Magazine says Moofushi and Halaveli offer guests their own ‘little piece of paradise’.

The review, which appears in the April edition of the magazine for business leaders, describes Moofushi’s appeal as being its ‘clear turquoise waters and Crusoe-chic elegance’.

Constance Halaveli

In Halaveli it’s the luxurious accommodation with private deck and pool which blew Stokes away. ‘The vast accommodation is so spectacular that you needn’t venture out.’

She did however manage to pull herself away from the luxury of her villa to sample the spas at both resorts, where she enjoyed the serene, stress-relieving environment of the tranquil treatment rooms floating on stilts above the lagoon.

Of particular note, Stokes praises the couple’s massage followed by champagne and strawberries at Moofushi, and the soothing Valmont treatments at Halaveli.

‘Each open-sided treatment room offers sea views and a glass-floor peephole so that you can spot tropical fish as any stress or tension is soothed away.’

In conclusion Stokes describes the resorts as the perfect place to ‘completely escape the stress of a busy working life.’

Queen of Retreats visits Constance Halaveli

Queen of Retreats, Caroline Sylger Jones, visited Constance Halaveli last month.

Spa at Constance Halaveli, Maldives

After a week of  fresh food, rejuvenating spa treatments from Valmont and Ila, snorkelling, star gazing and wandering barefoot, she returned home feeling ‘far more serene. Reconnected. Happy.’

In her Diary of a Maldivian Retreat

‘I am treated to a divine four handed massage with Ayu and Yulia in the spa, which they call the Meditative Indulgence – it’s an hour, but they add on an extra 20 minutes for heads and feet.

What is about these Asian therapists – their hands make the treatment feel like it goes on forever and forever, whereas in the UK an hour and a half goes so quickly. Is it their hands, the heat, the fact I’m already relaxed? They also have real power, no matter how slim or slight they are.’

And what of Halaveli itself?

‘We lie in a white rope hammock for ages together under the trees, legs entwined, and remember what it felt like to be together before we had our child. There are others about, but it doesn’t feel like it – we feel cocooned and undisturbed in our own little world. There 57 water villas here, and 29 beach villas, but really you wouldn’t know it.’

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.

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.

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.
