Overview

Chic, family-friendly resort on the west coast of the Seychelles with two private beaches fronting Port Launay

The Look

Tropical chic. Spanning 300 acres, the resort is a mix of fulsome greenery and gardens, Balinese-style pavilions and African conical thatch roofs. The villas blend in with their natural surroundings, with pale yellow stucco walls, mahogany louvered shades, dark hardwoods and private outdoor spaces.

Bed & Bath

The 267 suites and villas overlook Port-Launay’s turquoise waters and the verdant hills of Marine National Park. Each has its own living and dining area and an outdoor deck with a private pool, some which dangle above Port-Launay’s emerald bay. Spa Villas are equipped with a private hammam and treatment area for two, while Beach Villas feature spacious bathrooms with his-and-hers sinks, walk-in showers and separate tubs.

Beyond

Mangrove-fringed pathways lead to the five oceanfront restaurants, which offer everything from wood oven pizzas and grilled seafood to Creole specialties and Mediterranean cast iron dishes. Fly above the native takamaka trees on one of the resort’s eight zip lines from the North Beach to the poolside deck at Cyann for fresh sushi and such classic French-Asian dishes as the salmon with fennel cream. Cruise the nature trail on one of the free bikes, stopping for a treatment at the huge Shiseido spa, a round on the tennis courts, a night diving course at the PADI-certified dive center or a glass of aged rum at one of the four oceanfront bars.

Excellent hotel in paradise!

We stayed at the Constance Ephelia in September for our honeymoon and had an amazing experience.
We stayed in a Junior Suite, which was very spacious, tastefully decorated, modern and clean. The housekeeping service is excellent and the room is checked twice a day.
The hotel is quite large and situated on a National Park. The beauty about this is that there are several stunning beaches and areas to explore, including a walk through the mangroves. The North beach is busier and better for snorkelling. The South beach is more peaceful and if you want almost complete seclusion, a short walk leads you to beaches where, more often than not, we were the only couple there! We loved exploring the hotel’s grounds, but if you’re not keen on walking, the golf buggies are plentiful and always passing by to pick you up and drop you off.
The food at the hotel really is outstanding. The buffet restaurant Corossol is the best buffet we’ve ever experienced. It had a huge variety of food that changed every night of the week and was extremely good quality. The a la carts are also worth a visit – especially the Seselwa with its local Creole dishes to experience. We were on a Half Board basis and we found with the large breakfasts and dinners we didn’t actually need a lunch. Drinks are quite expensive, but this is the case in every hotel in the Seychelles, so just be prepared for the bill at the end!
The service in this hotel is excellent. The staff can’t do enough for you from the moment you check in and are so friendly. Our honeymoon was recognised with some lovely extra treats in our room. In addition, the Guest Services lady who greeted us on checking in, added an amazing personal touch for us. One morning we were invited (by a letter sent to our room) to a ‘surprise’. A golf buggy picked us up from our room and we were taken up to the highest point in the resort where the Hillside Villas are situated. We were dropped at one of these special villas, where we were greeted by a personal server and presented with the most amazing private breakfast on the villa’s dining area outdoors, with the most spectacular views of the bay. It was such a romantic treat!
Seychelles is a stunning destination. In between relaxing on the hotel’s beaches, we hired a car one day and drove around the island, exploring the many quiet, postcard-perfect beaches and visiting the capital Victoria. We also went on a day trip to La Digue and Praslin, which was well worth it just to see more of island life.
We had an amazing honeymoon and would absolutely recommend this fantastic hotel to anyone wanting to experience the paradise that is Seychelles!

What a magnificent place
Reviewed 4 days ago

We took the decision to visit the Seychelles following our recent experience in Mauritius, that we said was truly wonderful.
Having spent considerable time reviewing the various options, and after careful deliberation, we decided that the Constance Ephilia would provide us with the all the comforts that we would expect from a highly recommended hotel chain.
On arrival we were warmly greeted, that warm welcome continued throughout our 16 days vacation. “All” the staff are the key to making your stay exceptional, pleasant, smiling and all so passionate about having that opportunity to be working in the resort.
The extensive grounds which are set alongside the beach, south and north, and the various pools jotted around the resort provides many options, you certainly wouldn’t struggle to enjoy each day.
The abundance of restaurants, each of which has varied cuisines ranging from Italian to Creole, is sufficient to the extent that you shouldn’t have trouble finding something on the menu.
If we were to visit the Seychelles in the future, it is without doubt that we would choose the Constance Ephilia for our stay.
Thank you to all the staff.
