As the nights draw longer and the winter approaches, we’re dreaming of white sand beaches, translucent lagoons and secluded coves. In short, we’re craving sunny Mauritian serenity, and our friend Maurice knows all about that… Constance Le Prince Maurice hotel, that is.
Style Thatch and gliz
Setting Chic-en-Flacq headland
Why this week? November is already upon us: Christmas is on its way. So as we embark on the season of stodgy festive feasts, treat yourself to an Indian Ocean escape that’ll serve as the world’s most delightful post-Xmas rehab – the hotel offers the freshest and most enticing dining you’ll find in the Indian Ocean. Maurice’s lantern-lit Barachois floating restaurant provides an idyllic sunset setting to sample Faye Faye crab or grilled lobster, plucked from the waters right below your table. And, while you’re at it, why not save 30 per cent on your stay with our special offer?
Our favourite bits We don’t know if its the Luxe Sisley spa, the floating-bar sunsets or the earthy yet lavish rooms, but Constance Le Prince Maurice has stolen our hearts. Enclosed by azure waters, the luxury resort hotel is both beachfront and lake-edged with palm-shaded suites making it the perfect whimsical escapade for the hedonist within us all. Its free-form pool, luxurious spa and host of delicious restaurants (be they floating, fire-lit, or decked with sun loungers) are dispersed across the impressive grounds where the attentive service is second to none. The Mauritian way of life is always something to behold – but at the Constance, its just that bit better.
Mr & Mrs Smith say… ‘When breeze blows through the grounds of Constance Le Prince Maurice, it’s enough to make you want to flop down on sand as soft as whipped cream and lull yourself into a delicious, woozy half-sleep with the sound of waves rising and falling in time with your breathing. Just as well, really…’ Read the full Constance Le Prince Maurice review…
