Constance Prince Maurice
What We Love

One of Mauritius’s most come-hither hotels, the unabashedly romantic Constance Le Prince Maurice is a 60-acre resort of Feng Shui-inspired bungalows flanked by lush tropical gardens and Indian Ocean. Spice Island elegance abounds in the marble-floored lobby, with vaulted thatch roofs, four trickling fountains and a colonnade that sweeps your eye out to the slate-blue-tiled infinity pool and the sparkling azure Indian Ocean. It’s just shy of over-the-top, and right in that sweet spot of exotic appeal, thanks to the vision of Mauritian architect Jean-Marc Eynaud.
Bed and Bath
Equally ornate are the 76 guestrooms and 13 villas, where saffron-colored fabrics, colonial-style furniture and polished teak floors celebrate Mauritius’s heritage as a stop along the nautical spice route. Thatched-roof villas are intimate overwater bungalows equipped with living and dining areas. Spacious bathrooms are nearly as big as the bedrooms and feature separate showers and soaking Whirlpool tubs.
The food is superb, especially at the fine dining restaurant Archipel, which helped earn the resort its status as the country’s only member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux hotel association. The second restaurant, Barachois, earns points for its design — it occupies five connected docks over a marine reserve — and its simple grilled seafood. Likewise, the spa is one of the island’s standouts, with treatments ranging from Frenchified Sisley facials to rigorously authentic ayurvedic massages, and more of that stunning architecture: The two couples treatment suites are some of the most romantic around.
How to Get There
We went to Prince Maurice last weekend. We had an amazing stay. There is a well dedicated and friendly staff always at your service. We enjoyed delicious food in all the restaurants. My son likes the kids club a lot. The room was very clean and fresh. We got the opportunity to visit the cellar. Thank you very much and waiting to come back again.
We visited prince Constance Maurice for 12 days in February. It was a perfect combination of relaxation and privacy, activity and good food for us. Especially the beach front suites and villas are amazing, with direct access to a almost empty beach section even at high hotel utilization. We have also visited St Geran, which is probably two levels below when it comes to this. We are foodies and we were especially pleased by the Archipel Restaurant, where an Indian and a French chef together accomplished to provide lots of variation, authenticity and highest quality. We probably have to admit that we are really difficult to satisfy especially when it comes to hotel food which often, even in the top hotels, ends up to be a bit sterile and boring and can not keep up with the top restaurants. So big compliments to the Archipel kitchen team, and the French chef, who is a really pleasant and humble genius. Beach service was great, special thanks to Souky for organizing so many great meals on the Terrasse and so many fresh coconuts under the umbrella. One of the biggest surprises for us was the wine cellar, built by chief somelier Jerome Cavalier at a standard which you would never expect in the Indian Ocean. We initially planned to try some more regional South African wines but this ended in an impressive journey through the top French wines and some really fun hours with Jerome. I am not sure how you earned any money with this wine tasting, and we highly appreciate it ;-) So overall a big, big thank you to the hole Constance team, we will come back for sure. J & C
We have been resident in Mauritius for a couple years. We went to Le Prince Maurice because it is a place you don't want to miss when you live here. Everything was just perfect, even incredible in terms of service, attention, beauty of the site.
One thing our friends had told us was to test the wine cave visit and degustation. I must say we have spend 1:30 hours of the utmost experience. The cave is exceptional. Jerome the wine waiter in chief has an incredible knowledge and is able to share it with you, making the degustation of 3 incredible wines as much interesting as it is tasteful.
We recommend, if you visit Le Prince Maurice, that you don't miss the cave visit and degustation.
We had a wonderful stay. We received a warm welcome from the front office staff. Very friendly and helpful. Good customer service. They kept asking if everything was going well and to seek their help for any assistance.
What an amazing hotel stay we had at the Constance Prince Maurice. From start to finish the service from the staff was exceptional, everyone is so friendly and lovely. This hotel is so elegant, charming, and sophisticated.
The hotel is set in the perfect bay, breath taking views and with a beautiful quiet beach. So many secluded areas and day beds to relax and truly unwind. The sports team where fantastic and taught me how to mono ski. The beach gentleman are just so lovely, coming with cold towels and water - thank you!
We ate in all of the restaurants and the food was incredible. I would highly recommend room service tray set up as well. The last night we had dinner on the over water restaurant, what a highlight to meet Jonny! We spent a few nights in the suite room and then a few nights in the overwater villas on stilts, just magical.
I love your green policies, and Dodos on the bed. Thank you so much to everyone for the most truly romantic holiday last year.
