1. Championing sustainable practices

At Constance Hotels & Resorts, we take pride in leading the sustainable tourism movement within the luxury Indian Ocean sector. Continuously striving to minimise our environmental impact, all our resorts place a priority on waste management, energy-efficient practices, reduced emissions and water conservation.

Some of our initiatives include: reducing water usage and using 100% recycled wastewater for irrigation, minimising energy consumption through advanced regulation and promoting renewable energy sources. 

Featuring numerous thoughtful touches to enhance guests’ stays and protect the environment, at our Maldives resorts we provide microplastic collection bags in each room, encouraging guests to help us keep the beaches clean. In the Seychelles, we use eco-friendly, energy-efficient, and eco-labelled products whenever possible.

At Constance Tsarabanjina, our hotel villas are constructed from local raw materials, including wooden structures and thatched roofs, blending sustainability with natural beauty. Additionally, Constance Belle Mare Plage proudly participates in the Pledge on Food Waste certification program, reinforcing our commitment to reducing food waste and promoting responsible dining practices.

 2. Commitment to responsible hospitality

At Constance Hotels & Resorts, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

Ensuring a luxurious yet environmentally responsible experience for our guests, we adhere to the four R’s of waste management: refuse, reduce, reuse, and recycle. Our partnership with Parley for the Ocean transforms plastic waste into usable items such as tennis shoes, encouraging a sustainable and stylish solution to plastic pollution.

Alongside our Green Globe Certification, over the years, our commitment to sustainability has earned us multiple accolades, including the World Travel Awards for Indian Ocean’s Leading Hotel Brand, and TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice and Certificate of Excellence. Three of our hotels are also proud members of the Leading Hotels of the World. 

Nature-Centric Experiences 

If a retreat centred around untouched, exceptional surroundings is on your bucket list, our Indian Ocean destinations offer unique experiences for everyone.

From native national parks to waterfalls and endless ocean life, the natural environment is one of our most renowned attractions for our guests. We are dedicated to maintaining and developing sustainable tourism to preserve our pristine locations.

 3. Dive into natural wonders

Swap the traditional swimming pool for the essence of the Indian Ocean at Constance Tsarabanjina, where guests can learn to dive on the reefs whilst exploring areas of untouched beauty.

Boasting a protected marine area, this barefoot sanctuary of protected species integrates with the local life of the hotel and closely collaborates with the villagers of Mitsio by providing support for local communities and buying locally sourced seafood from the fishermen of Mitsio.

Why not catch a fish for dinner or explore a diverse oceanscape with a snorkelling guide?

4. Embrace biodiversity and reconnect with wildlife

At Constance Prince Maurice, guests can immerse themselves in a lush environment teeming with biodiversity. 

Our leading resort boasts native mangroves and a protected fish sanctuary, offering guests the chance to explore with our Coastal and Lagoon Directory, created in collaboration with the NGO Reef Conservation.

Alternatively, at Constance Lemuria, you can reconnect with wildlife at the UNESCO World Heritage site Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve and visit the leading turtle sanctuary managed by Robert Matombé.

5. Off the beaten track slow travel

Enjoy off-the-beaten-track hikes and experience unparalleled freedom at our secluded locations.

For those looking to escape the everyday and soak up wild vegetation and rich cultural heritage, the relaxed Rodrigues eco lifestyle at Constance Tekoma Rodrigues is ideal.

Partnering with the Francois Leguat Nature Reserve, at Constance Tekoma, we are committed to restoring local endemic forests – with every booking, we plant a tree to support this initiative.
