Jet off for some sun, sea and spa time at Constance Belle Mare Plage
A vivid blue lagoon, two-kilometre-long beach, and tropical coconut palms characterise the stunning natural beauty of Constance Belle Mare Plage. Hugging the east coast of Mauritius, the five-star family resort has a wide range of accommodation options, from Prestige Rooms to expansive villas, and is a haven for sybarites, golfers and adventure seekers.
Make a splash
When you’re done lazing on the beach, challenge yourself to master a watersport, such as waterskiing, wakeboarding or windsurfing. For something more leisurely, you can set off in a kayak or pedalo to tour the waters at your own pace. Speaking of which, Mauritius is famous among the scuba diving community for its vibrant marine life, and you can see a snapshot of its underwater world while on a glass-bottom boat trip. For a closer look, the dive masters at the Blues DivingCentre can take you on a private or group excursion.
More of a golfer? The Legend Golf Course, designed by Hugh Baiocchi, and Links Golf Course, designed by Rodney Wright and Peter Allis, both offer a challenging 18 holes – just try not to get distracted by the view.
Dine around, Mauritius style
Island dining isn’t simply about seafood, although there are plenty of delicious dishes featuring succulent lobsters and local fish on the menu at the resort’s seven restaurants. No matter what you crave, it’s bound to be a gastronomic experience, whether it’s a light bite at the beachfront Indigo, simple Mediterranean fare at La Spiaggia or a decadent feast paired with a rare bottle from the exclusive Blue Penny Cellar.
Time to spa
Travelling can take a toll but even if you’re not tired from the journey, you’ll want to visit U Spa by Constance. The resort’s wellness haven is a place where you can focus on ‘you’ and switch off – for an hour at least. Treatments are based on the use of natural products inspired by plants from the Indian Ocean. The massage oil – inspired by the island and infused with tropical plants and fruits – will send you on a fragrant journey all on its own.
With five-star luxury at every turn, Constance Belle Mare Plage is paradise for grown-ups, but it’s also supremely family-friendly. Spacious family suites have plenty of room for the kids – and a stash of toys – while the much-loved Constance Kids Club welcomes tots aged four to 11 for adventure-filled days. Supervised by fully qualified staff, the club has a kids’ swimming pool, arts and crafts, and areas set aside for imaginative play. A dedicated menu will keep tiny tummies full – when they’re not feasting on ice cream and pizza they made themselves, of course. Babysitting and everyday gear such as strollers can also be arranged, helping to make your stay as stress-free as possible.
A fine romance
Are you a bride-to-be? You can finally stop tapping ‘honeymoon in Mauritius’ or ‘wedding in Mauritius’ into Google. Everything you’ve envisaged for your big day can be brought to life, island style, courtesy of the dedicated wedding planner at Constance Belle Mare Plage. From pampering pre-wedding spa treatments to a decorated golf buggy and a sunset ceremony on the beach, not to mention the all-important details like hair and make-up and live music, they’ll plan it to suit your budget and your vision.
Honeymooners can camp up the romance with a flower petal filled bath and romantic dining experiences beneath the stars providing a dreamy start to your happy ever after.
