Constance Prince Maurice
What We Love
- Rate includes daily buffet breakfast
- Splendid isolation, on a private peninsula void of beach vendors
- Lantern-lined floating restaurant, Barachois

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
I had a wonderful stay at Prince Maurice Hotel. We were surprised by the birthday cake which was offered on my husband's birthday. We received a warm welcome and all the hotel staff are very nice and friendly. The villa was very clean, tidy and spacious with a nice heated pool. The room service was also great.The food at Barachois restaurant is awesome. You will find a range of delicious seafood there. Highly recommended!
This is the best Mauritius has to offer! Just incredible rooms, food, service.
We booked 14 nights and extended to
21 nights. Kevin was amazing and stood out as super helpful. He always had a friendly smile and went out of his way to assist us. We missed him on his days off.
The food. Service. Rooms etc were all
Out of this world. Thanks
Every time I visit here (this was my eighth stay) I worry that the luxury and service will not meet my previous experiences but it always does. This is a truly exceptional hotel in a beautiful setting with exquisite grounds and accommodation. Every single member of staff here clearly loves their job and it is the definition of pure service.
Highlights this year included feeding the huge tortoises now residing in the grounds, spotting the amazing turtles in the fish reserve, two wonderful spa massages (thanks Jill), the beach service from Souky (my sunglasses have never been so clean), drinks with members of the management team, including the fabulous Manjoola and Dalida, wine tasting, my villa on stilts (sunset views were amazing), dinner at Le Barachois, the food and service at L’Archipel (passion fruit lassi at breakfast is now a custom-made tradition) and of course, the famous Le Prince Maurice hospitality.
This hotel never fails to deliver. Just wonderful.
My wife and I had an absolutely amazing honeymoon at the Prince Maurice hotel. Traveling an incredibly long distance from the US--our expectations were extremely high. Fortunately, Constance Prince Maurice exceeded even our greatest expectations.
The beauty of the hotel was only outdone by the friendliness of the staff. From our first day to our last, the staff made us feel special, getting to know us and taking an interest. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel like family.
On top of that, the food was excellent, the drinks were unreal and the entire atmosphere felt like a dream. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
This hotel is amazing. We have visited twice and my daughter had her honeymoon here. Small, select and with exceptional staff and service. If you enjoy golf, tennis, gym, stunning pool service, beautiful beach with water sports and fabulous food this is the place for you. There are three restaurants, main restaurant aside the pool and beach, Asian and a lovely floating bar and restaurant accessed via a boardwalk on the lagoon. All fabulous. A very select hotel. Upmarket, quiet.
