Bedroom Elegant Hip Luxury Suite property Resort cottage mansion Villa pillow lamp


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.


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.

Our wedding was done excellent!
Reviewed 1 day ago

We chose to stay and to have our wedding in Constance Ephelia Seychelles. We knew we were going to a nice hotel, but we definitely didn't expect that it will turn out that nice. Beyond expectations nice! With no fear to sound too much, I'd say It felt like Ephelia's kind angel was taking care of us everywhere. 🙈to be more correct Ephelia's super nice stuff. And I believe we met the best ones! Our wedding coordinator Juliana thanks very much to her! She made sure our wedding decorations were exactly how we wanted it! Juliana was super very helpful with location of our wedding too, cause we wanted a quite unusual place, but Juliana trying to meet our wishes, made some calls and the hotel agreed to cooperate too. we are very grateful for this to hotel's management as well! But that wasn't it! The wedding day went perfectly smooth. Juliana was always there. Then after the wedding we got to know that our room was upgraded to the hill top villa with our own pool and buggy. How is that for a wedding present from the hotel!! 🙈We were literally over the top with happiness! Thanks to Wilson, who works in villa number 9!!! He is the loveliest man!) And lods of thanks to Anton the manager, he arranged our late check out and just for being a very nice person he is! Thank you to all the stuff for making such a nice and lovely atmosphere around the hotel! And to all management, who made all those arrangements for us and they can be sure they made our stay and our wedding super special!!! We cannot thank you enough!!!
Best wishes,
Anastasia & Matthew

A piece of paradise
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed at Ephelia for 11 nights at the beginning of July 18. The resort is simply beautiful, a small piece of paradise that you can go and visit.
Our room was a junior suite based on the south beach, great size room for 2, enormous bed and all the amenities you need, plus a perfect view out to the beach. Wherever you are on site (and it's a big site) golf buggies are running around to take you anywhere if you don't want to walk. We went to the gym ( yes sorry we are one of those couples!!) which is small but well equipped, we did this so we could enjoy the 5 restaurants and bars on the site. Everywhere we ate the food was fantastic, we had various local delicacies including fruit bat curry, red snapper and octopus. Breakfast was a great buffet with fresh eggs being made into omelettes etc.
Drinks are not cheap, you even have to purchase water at dinner in the evening so be prepared!! You get water every day in the room and there are water dispensers around the site for the day time but this cannot be taken to dinner.
Go, enjoy and relax.

This hotel is the most beautiful place i have ever been. The surroundings are just unreal. The staff could not be anymore helpful. Look out for vatson, Sebastian and mendie who made the stay even better, the management have great attention to detail and are very friendly. They made our holiday fantastic, will be sad to leave but thankful for such great people. There's so much more to say about how out of this world this place is but you really need to try it for yourself! Very lucky to have experienced this. Thank you to Stephan for just topping off an already perfect honeymoon.

Again in paradise

As i left Constance Ephelia a few years ago, i was thinking how beautiful was and trying to imagine that if I would come back I would find the same nice place and attentive service.
Somehow, my wish was listened, and, coming back this year I discovered the resort, almost as I left it.
The nicest part of all is that you really see the strive for good service to you. And is really good. Sameclarge beaches, not crowded, very well kept.
Thinking of the work behind, i can only say, WELL DONE Constance Ephelia!

Personal Attention

As regular travellers we have been lucky to have had many fantastic experiences. Having loved Constance Prince Maurice in Mauritius our expectations were very high. Day 1 at Epehlia was not a good start and we raised our concerns quickly.
The response from management and staff exceeded our every expectation. By the end of our stay we had enjoyed the service of so many very special people. Stephan the Hotel Manager was beyond fantastic - the kind of people person a hotel needs (we met him at Prince Maurice last year). So many to mention but important special people were Rose and Chris (sisters), Lindo and Brandon (2 South Africans). Jawado and David (Villa reception), Greta (main restaurant), Maheesh (Helios restaurant). The wounderful house keeping guys for the beautiful Suite 21. And lastly to managers Sri and Vikrant for stepping in early when we had a problem and following through. So how was Ephelia? Food very good for a big resort. Service - need i say more when we remember the people by name!!!!!!
