Constance Ephelia, Mahé, Seychelles


Paradise found

I’m feeling nostalgic today and longing to be back in the Seychelles. Constance Ephelia Hotel on Mahé, to be exact. It’s just under a year ago since hubby and I decided to book an almost three-week holiday to Mahé. I’m not quite sure what we were thinking when we booked – our babies Coco and Chloe were only three-months- and 19-months-old respectively then, meaning relaxation was not quite the name of the game. But for the three nights that we spent at Constance Ephelia (our second time at the hotel), our every need was catered for. Ephelia is one of my favourite places in the world (and thanks to work, I have stayed at my fair share of five star hotels globally) – there is something about this property that stays with you. With its own beach and unobstructed views of the Port Launay National Marine Park, it’s no wonder travellers from all over the world return year in and out. The service is phenomenal, the amenities are endless (the kids club is especially great if you have little ones in tow) and it is home to the biggest spa in the Indian Ocean.
(Have you booked yet?)

If you still need more convincing, or you’re in the mood for a little armchair travel, scroll down…

Almost every beach in Mahe is beautiful and secluded

  1. Omiword, Net. I didn’t think anything of it at the time, but looking back now… I don’t know HOW you managed with a 3-month-old AND a 19-month-old! Supermom! Mahe looks AMAZING… I’m dying for an island holiday!
