Constance has launched a new spa experience across all our hotels and resorts in the Indian Ocean. U Spa uses an holistic approach to guests’ needs, creating a wellbeing program specifically tailored to meet each guest’s needs, preferences and goals.

Our U Spa offering includes a range of updated treatments, fitness activities and nutrition to create a full sense of wellbeing and happiness for our spa guests.

Each guest will have the chance to meet with a spa host to discuss potential treatments and approaches, before creating a unique U Experience Card to ensure your U Spa experience is designed specifically for you.

The U Spa team

U Spa is run by a team of international, highly skilled therapists, spa hosts and spa managers, overseen by Naturopathic Doctor and Corporate Spa Manager, Dr Chase Webber.

Dr Webber – who previously ran a Naturopathic practice for 12 years incorporating therapeutic bodywork, massage, nutrition, herbal medicine and exercise to treat patients – believes the U Spa philosophy sits at the heart of a great spa experience, where the whole person is considered.

Enjoy Classic or Deluxe U Spa treatment

If you’re looking for a goal-orientated massage to help you relax, detox and rejuvenate, our Classic U Spa treatments will meet your needs.
If, however, your needs are better served by an authentic traditional massage we also offer Balinese, Ayurvedic, Thai-Shiatsu and Swedish as well as sophisticated pedicure and manicure treatments and even a Kids’ Spa.

Embrace wellbeing

For the ultimate in specialised skin care we also offer a range of Deluxe treatments from some of the best international spa brands including Shiseido, Valmont, Sisley and Brice Nicham depending on the resort.

U Spa products inspired by the Indian Ocean

Using the finest quality, 100% natural botanical ingredients combined with the latest advances in scientific research, our U Spa products have been exclusively developed for us.

Scents of the Indian Ocean including ylang-ylang, vanilla, coconut, sweet orange, frangipani and aloe vera are used for their therapeutic properties as well as to create an exotic aromatic backdrop for your treatment.

Guests can purchase the range of cream exfoliators, hydrators and body oils to take home with them.

The U Spa Wellness Experience

Guests can embrace the holistic U Spa approach to create a full wellness program during their stay at Constance, which includes spa treatments, fitness activities and nutrition.

Those looking to improve their fitness can choose from a new bodyweight program to strengthen, stretch and tone their body as well as yoga to improve fitness, postural awareness and wellbeing. Personal Training is also available for a personalised fitness approach.

Relaxing the mind, body and soul

Marked with a ‘W’ on our menus our Wellness Cuisine embraces delicious authentic dishes of fresh vegetables, fish and meat prepared using healthy cooking methods.

Queen of Retreats recommends Constance Le Prince Maurice

Luxury wellbeing and spa blogger Caroline Sylger Jones praises the Kickstart the Fast Diet package at Constance Le Prince Maurice on her Queen of Retreats website.

Sylger Jones accompanied Fast Diet co-creator Mimi Spencer to Mauritius to try out the Fast Diet package, created by Spencer, which includes special calorie-counted meals for fast days, spa treatments and exercise advice.

‘Mimi’s idea is that, away from life’s distractions and looked after by others, getting into The Fast Diet couldn’t be easier – making it more likely that you’ll continue it when back in your real world,’ Sylger Jones explains.

Available all year round and without the need to pre-book, she was impressed at how easy it was to get involved in the Kickstart the Fast Diet package on arrival at the hotel.

She also praised the fact that Fast Diet dishes are marked on all menus with a special logo to make it easy to follow and even drinks and cocktails come with calorie advice.

Sylger Jones explains that fasting was easier in the 5* luxury of the hotel, ‘It felt good to focus my attention on other things – the view, for example, or the excellent book I was reading, or how comfy the day bed was on my balcony. All in the knowledge that the next day I could eat what the hell I liked from a choice of top notch restaurants.’

She raves about the food on both fast and non-fasting days highlighting ‘lavish buffet breakfasts at L’Archipel’, the sashimi and salads at the laidback Asian Corner and dinner at Le Barachois, the hotel’s restaurant which floats on the peaceful lagoon.

She says, ‘Between eating and not eating I stayed busy with laid back yogic stretching on the beach, lots of swims in the lap pool and the sea, and lying about reading on the beach – where staff served us cold water in natty orange ice bags, cleaned our sunglasses and brought us tubs of Haagan Daaz on non fast days. It’s all very relaxed.’

Health and fitness – Yoga on the beach

Kick-starting that change and then maintaining motivation are two major barriers to success.

Consider taking a break from it all and give your energy levels a boost with a blast of winter sun at one of our 7 hotels and resorts in the Indian Ocean.

With fresh, healthy food prepared daily, fully equipped fitness suites, personal trainers, sumptuous spas and adrenalin-pumping water sports a Constance holiday can provide the ideal environment to take a new approach to your wellbeing.

Guidance from a personal trainer

Talk to one of our personal trainers about your health and fitness needs and goals. They can then design a program specifically for you and will be on hand throughout your stay to guide you through it.

You decide whether you want a program based in our high tech fitness suites, in the privacy of your villa or out in the open air with a beach workout, tennis or swimming.

Team spirit

Wellbeing can be about more than fitness – it can be about making connections with others and having fun too. Our fitness classes offer the opportunity to make friends and have fun while you get fit.
