Constance Prince Maurice is a luxury resort tucked away in a peaceful, intimate setting along the east coast of Mauritius. It lies at the tip of a relatively undeveloped peninsula and is ideal for those looking for somewhere away from the busier, touristy areas of the island. While the resort is somewhat off the beaten path, it has an impressive line-up of activities and experiences to keep guests occupied and entertained. Created by renowned designers Jean Marc Eynaud and David Edwards who focused on incorporating Feng Shui practices into the resort’s design, the property successfully combines pleasing aesthetic design with practicality and is one of eight properties in the high-end Constance hotel portfolio.
There are plenty of accommodation options available including sixty-four Junior Suites, a dozen Family Suites, a dozen Villas and the largest of all, the Princely Villa. Some rooms have views of the resort’s well-presented gardens, while others look out onto the ocean and some even have direct beach access. There’s also a series of suites located on stilts above the water offering a unique water-based accommodation experience. All accommodation is air conditioned and bathrooms come with a separate bathtub and shower, along with double vanity units.
There’s a great deal to do at the resort. There are two floodlit tennis courts, a practice putting range and two pools for guests to make use of. Many water-based activities such as windsurfing, kayaking, water skiing and snorkelling are also available. The resort is right beside a number of top dive sites; as such, diving is particularly popular here, with the Blues Diving programme offering regular sessions for experienced divers, along with lessons for beginners. For those looking to unwind completely, there’s a range of pampering treatments on offer at U Spa by Constance, where the focus is very much on improving your wellbeing. There’s also a well-stocked library that functions as a cosy retreat.
The resort is very family friendly and welcomes children of all ages. The Family Suites are recommended for those travelling with younger ones and the Constance Kids Club will keep children aged four to eleven well entertained. There’s also a paid babysitting service.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
