A secluded hideaway with idyllic overwater suites and the island’s only floating restaurant.
Located on its own secluded peninsula on the east coast, with no public access, Constance Prince Maurice is a boutique, secluded haven made for romantic escapes or family escapades. Colonial-style suites have polished teak floors and plantation-style furniture. The most coveted are the overwater suites with views of the mountains, and those with private pools right on the beach. Or go all out and book the Princely Villa with its own beach, two pools and a round-the-clock butler.
Enjoy laps in the sprawling infinity pool, practise your swing on two championship golf courses at nearby sister resort Constance Belle Mare Plage, and enjoy the excellent beach service, some of the best in Mauritius. Service throughout is personable and charming – they remember names and how you like your cocktails.
Foodies flock here for the Michelin star-studded food festival each spring, and the hotel offers private food pairing dinners among 25,000 world wines in its cellar. Lantern-lit seafood suppers are on the cards at the island’s only floating restaurant, tucked in the mangroves.
The family suites come with bunk beds and Apple Mac Minis, while family beach villas have their own stretch of sand and heated private pool.
After a lap in the pool, curl up on a cabana big enough for two.
Take a boat trip to Ile aux Cerfs, a pretty island off the village of Trou d’Eau Douce.
