Set in 120 hectares of lush tropical gardens, with beautiful white sand beaches overlooking Port Launay marine park on the island of Mahé, this Mauritian-owned village-style resort is similar to Constance Belle Mare Plage on Mauritius. It offers excellent, and very safe, sea swimming.
As you enter, the main part of the Constance Ephelia hotel is to your left and the Junior Suites to your right. Across a bridge, are the senior suites and villas, with bicycles to cycle around. The twelve private pool villas nestled in dense vegetation on the hillside are like those at Constance Prince Maurice on Mauritius inside, with a beautiful view of the sea. If you can afford it, they are really something!
Constance Hotels and Resorts have a strong focus on gastronomy, and service, and many hotel staff are Mauritian. Constance Ephélia has five restaurants and bars. I had a fantastic dinner at the haute cuisine restaurant, Cyann, with a beautiful view over Port Launay marine park, and private dinners can be arranged on the beach.
Constance Ephélia is affordable for The Seychelles, with a very big spa with open-sided thatched treatment cabins and a strong focus on health and wellbeing activities. It also has a kids club catering for children from 4-11 years. It’s an excellent choice for multi generational family groups, due to the wide accommodation choice.
- Hire a mini moke for at least two days to explore the island of Mahé
- Alternatively take a driver guide from Masons Travel
- Pop into Victoria, one of the smallest capitals in the world, and visit a tea plantation to try some local tea.
