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.

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
