Constance Ephelia Resort

Seychelles, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Constance Ephélia offers state-of-the-art facilities in a location that will take your breath away. Set within almost 300 acres of tropical landscape, the resort is fringed by two of the island’s best beaches, with soft, white sand and warm, clear waters gently lapping at the shore. If that’s not enough to tempt you, the extensive Constance Spa offers a wide range of treatments to leave you feeling on top of the world. Why not choose to stay in a Hillside Villa where you'll have privacy and sensational views? There are also incredibly spacious Family Villas and Beach Villas, all with private pool and garden space. When it comes to dining, you’re spoilt for choice with superb restaurants, including Cyann, combining French culinary techniques with the lightness and flavour of Asian cuisine. Corossol is the main restaurant with sumptuous buffet dishes, whilst Helios, on the south beach, offers tapas, mezze and antipasti delights. Each restaurant has a bar with a creative range of cocktails and there's live music come sundown in the hotel's lively main bar. Cyann is the most elegant bar with an outdoor deck just metres from the beach. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy a whole range of non-motorised water sports and, whilst parents enjoy a well-deserved break, the kids will play happily at the complimentary kids' club.

We had a 3 nights stay booked at Constance for March 2020 and it was unfortunately not the best time to be traveling. We were booked on Half Board but during check in their system was showing it as Bed & Breakfast rate only. Luckily we had an email to prove the correct booking and it still took them almost 30 mins at check in to verify this. Additionally, we were only notified about the closure of SPA treatments at the time of inquiry while they could have given prior notice. As we had to travel back to home only after spending one night there, Mr. Vijay from the front office offered us a refund of one night and assured us that we would have an email next morning as their systems were down. It has been 5 days and 2 follow up emails with no response from anyone in their team. It does not help guests when the staff are panicking all around them and cannot get even a airport transfer booking right Be ready to have a long wait for the shuttle service to take you from and to the room. The only staff that had high level of customer service were the ones at Kids Club. Hopefully they can turn their service levels around and use this experience from the pandemic for improving service levels in the future. Read less

I stayed at Constance Ephelia with my two children and we really enjoyed the multiple activities that are offered. I am sure everyone can read about them on their website. I would like to talk about the two memorable parts for me which were the Spa which is one of a kind. It is an area with many possibilities where you can spend the whole day beside having a great massage. One day we went for a walk to investigate some other parts and walked up to the helipad, across to the bay down and around to another beach where we were totally alone and enjoyed a Robinson Crusoe feeling. The mangroves are also some to learn a lot about and the whole area of Constance Ephelia is so huge that you can never get bored. In the evening a lot of entertainment ! Very good for a family vacation ! Read less

Constance Ephelia Resort Seychelles Stay from 3rd Feb for 6 nights Our stay at Constance Ephelia was very pleasant. The bedrooms are spacious and the rooms were cleaned to a high standard. The pool areas were spilt so different sections had their own pool, which meant there was always plenty of room by the poolside. We went half board, the breakfast and diner buffet was always fresh with lots of options for everyone. My friend is vegan and the chefs went out of their way to make her special puddings and show her everything vegan available on buffet (there was always plenty of choice). We attended the creole night which we paid extra for however weren’t aware before booking that this would be a buffet, the entertainment provided was good, however we found the food to be cold, therefore we preferred main buffet. There are lots of activities which are available free of charge within the grounds, which we really enjoyed . The mosquitoes were bad during our stay there and I mentioned this to reception, they said they would spray our room. Later that night we were brought lots of products (we did already have some however these were not working) to help with this problem which we were not expecting and this helped massively. During our stay (which we really enjoyed) it was my friends 30th when booking the restaurant we informed them that it was her birthday and they said they would provide a cake, however none arrived. After mentioning this on leaving the restaurant they were really apologetic and bought one to our room later, we were already in bed and asked them if they could bring it tomorrow, nothing arrived. This is not a massive issue however this also happen to my sister at the same resort when she was there for a birthday so I would advise if you are going for a big birthday like we were try and make this very clear to the management. During our time there I broke my wrist (simple accident) however we called reception for a bandage and an hour later nothing arrived. We then gave up and when to the poolside to enquire and we found one there, after over an hour of waiting for the bandage we called reception to tell them that we didn’t need it. Overall we had a fabulous stay and would recommend it to anyone, whilst there were a couple of hiccups this did not dampen our experience or stay at Constance Ephelia and would return in the future.
