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 U Spa by Constance 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.

Usually we always need to change a room or complain when we stay at a hotel, but this time everything was perfect. We stayed at the family villa with 2 bedrooms and I think that this is the best choice (we also had a look on the other villas) - The resort is big and there is a lot to do for kids, great kids club and the zip line is super cool as well. You can see a lot in the near sourunding like waterfalls and secret beaches. The beaches in the resort are nice, but there are better ones on the island. The south beach is very shallow, so good for small kids but not so good for swimming, its more like a lake, but you can walk to a nice island when there is low tide. The other beach is nicer to swim and to snorkel. The food is ok. We stayed also at the four seasons in Mahe, and the food and the beach there where much better, also the view from the room was amazing, but Constance had the better service and friendliness, so I can definitly recommend it especially for families with small kids.

Went there for lunch and it was Indonesian cuisine. From the starter to the dessert was just...wow! I licked my fingers when my friends were not watching but they all were happy and satisfied with the meal. I surely be back for it some day.

We visited Constance Ephelia during our honeymoon trip to Seychelles in Jan 2019. We received the best possible hospitality. The rooms are spacious and comfortable (we were in a junior suite) on the south campus. There is a choice of five restaurants, and we loved all the food in the four restaurants we ate - Corosol for breakfast, dinner at Seselwa, Helios and Adam&Eve. Helios and Adam&Eve were amazing. Seselwa was nice as well but we were too tired of eating creole food by the time we reached Constance after our Praslin stay. Breakfast at Corosol is lovely, but it gets a little repetitive. I suppose the weekend menu was what we enjoyed more than the weekday menu. The campus is lovely, snorkeling on the north beach is very enjoyable. Our transfer from hotel to airport through the travel agent did not turn up, the hotel promptly provided us a transfer to the airport at no charge. I would definitely recommend Constance Ephelia to anyone planning a visit to Mahe Island. Read less
