Tout savoir sur l'expérience
Constance Le Prince Maurice is a mecca for travellers seeking exclusive experiences. The peaceful and quiet hotel epitomizes luxury at its most pristine. From the moment you step inside the lobby, scented by spices and blossoms (an ode to Maurice de Nassau, Prince of Orange), an attentive personnel caters to your every whim.
Le Prince Maurice lies along the north-east coast of Mauritius, where the sea meets the barachois, a body of water separated from the open sea by a canal and surrounded by endemic tropical flora. A sense of privileged seclusion pervades these marine gardens, accentuated by a winding timber pontoon that traverses the mangrove-lined waterway, leading at once to Le Barachois’ dining pods, and to stunning villas set upon wooden pillars. Whether on stilts, or aligning the beach and garden, each of the resort’s villas and suites is bedecked with dark wood and exquisitely furnished in a style reminiscent of the Dutch East India period.
A stay at this legendary hotel is a culinary voyage in itself. Breakfasts, with their lavish buffet displays, are an epicure’s delight, while lunch is served poolside at two restaurants set between the pristine beach and the blue-green swimming pool. As the sun begins to set behind the inland mountain range – lighting the skies in tones of violet and rose – head to the Floating Bar, hovering amidst the coastal forest, where afterward, when the night has settled in, you may dine on the edge of these splendid shores at one of the island’s most elegant restaurants.
