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
Reviewed 18 hours ago

This is a beautiful hotel, right on the beach. Our room was a junior suite and was large, with a great bathroom. Our friends stayed near the North beach and had to get a buggy each day to meet us for breakfast at the south of the resort. I preferred the south side.

The sea is beautiful and there are complimentary paddle boards, snorkels etc.
Plenty of small pools to swim in.

Only downside is the cost of everything! Beers (280ml) are 105 rupees, just 23 rupees at the shop down the road. Vege burger cost us around £20!

The speciality restaurants on site are worth booking early as they got booked up.

Our BBQ on the beach for a 50th birthday was simply stunning and the highlight of the trip. Worth doing if you are there for a special occasion.

Paradise holiday location
Reviewed 20 hours ago

We visited the Constance Ephelia for a relaxing week after a hectic trip to Zambia and Botswana.
The location is idyllic we stayed near the South Beach in a Junior Suite. The room was very accommodating with a large bathroom area and balcony overlooking a quiet pool area.
We ate at most of the restaurants, the buffet restaurant was fabulous but it was quite busy. Our two favourite restaurants were Helios and Adam & Eve.
We had a couple of beers each nite at the Zee bar which is very nice .
Staff were amazing, very friendly everyone wants to say hello, ask how you are and if they can help you.
Special mention to Ragu who was managing the bar area, an exceptional young man. He was always willing to help and guide us and take part in a great conversation.
All the facilities are A1 standard.
There are only two consideration points I would make to anyone thinking of going to this resort. You will love it and it is amazing but if you are looking to party this is not the place, it’s pretty quiet after 10.30pm. Also alcoholic drinks are a little pricey and in line with a decent London restaurant but most certainly not Dubai crazy prices though tonics, cokes etc at £4 are a little heavy especially if you have children.
We went to relax in what we hoped would be Paradise and most certainly did.

Thank you so much ❤️

Perfect stay in a stunning resort
Reviewed 4 days ago

The Ephilia resort lives up to other Constance resorts we have been to- the location changes but the attention to detail and customer service remain top class!!
We stayed in a junior suit with sea view -within a minute you can be on an expansive beach. Superb location.The resort is big and spread out but there are golf buggies on hand to take you all over the resort.There are 2 beaches both are beautiful ,The south beach is good for swimming the north is better for snorkelling with many corals and stunning fish. We went on the snorkelling trip organised by the resort boat house and this was amazing. They take you into the marine reserve and here there is an abundance’ of sea life. There is a giant tortoise sanctuary on the resort too and they have many residents which you can feed. The Corrasol buffet restaurant is fabulous with an overwhelming choice of dishes for both breakfast and dinner. We also had dinner at Adam and Eve one night which was super -Asian dishes with a twist and totally catered for us as vegetarians. Must try if you stay here.

Whilst the resort is all you would expect from a 5* hotel there is one thing that that is quite different with the Constance brand and that is the superb customer service from every member of staff who work very hard to make sure your stay is wonderful. A special thanks to Nicole in the Zee bar for her ready smile and super attentiveness. Also to Pranaya and Rahul for looking after us so well. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Joseph on the golf buggy trips.The management teams are to be applauded for instilling great service in all their staff.

awesome Hotel
Reviewed 5 days ago

absolutely wonderful hotel отель rested for the second time. huge green territory. cozy rooms. purely. the staff is trying. delicious food in the main restaurant. huge selection. Birds, geckos run around the territory) mangroves are very beautiful (but many mosquitoes despite fumigation, the children were severely bitten despite the sprays) a large cage with scoops))) hello to the scavenger !!! now you could only watch) but a year ago we were given to feed them at 16 o'clock. a good kids club, friendly staff, especially the Russian girl Tatiana. during their stay - the child fell ill with angina - was correctly diagnosed and bought medicine from the man’s doctor. I do not remember the name, unfortunately, thanks to him too!)). At the reception we were very helpful and translated everything in many situations, Camilla! for which she thanks a lot !! On the first day, there was some misunderstanding on the part of the hotel, but as an apology, we were given a surprise three days in a family chic villa. Many thanks to the hotel managers for such attention to the guests! It was very nice and unexpected. in the villa cleaned Vinod. tried very hard and asked him to mention)) of the minuses - often unfriendly staff. with a dissatisfied face for no apparent reason. Especially surprised by the sellers in all boutiques except one at the far reception. many times came to buy something but obviously we were not happy and not friendly. I meet for the first time in hotels. In general, I liked everything very much and would be happy to return again))
