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.

It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.
It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.
Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!
My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
Level of service, quality of food throughout
