Which Constance Resort in Mauritius is Right for You?

Dreaming of Mauritius? If you are planning your adventure in this little slice of paradise lost in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Madagascar, the Constance Resort group has got to be at the top of your list.

I had the opportunity to check out the famous Constance Belle Mare Plage as well as Constance Prince Maurice. While they both impressed me, some differences were clear that made them appealing to different types of travelers.

Here’s how to decide which Constance Resort in Mauritius is your best pick.

Resort

Constance Belle Mare Plage is a five-star property, and Constance Prince Maurice is actually considered to be a six-star property. While I would normally say that an extra star isn’t always a guarantee that the property is “better,” I did find that Constance Prince Maurice felt higher end.

When it comes to group types, Constance Prince Maurice is a dream destination for honeymooners and other couples looking for a romantic escape. Even though Constance Prince Maurice was fully booked during my stay, it always felt uncrowded and we didn’t really see kids running around.

If you want an adults-only feel, this is for you. If you are traveling as a family or a group looking for an active holiday, Constance Belle Mare Plage is primo.

Note: Both Constance Resorts offer the fun and practical Constance Kids’ Club, which will keep little travelers engaged and happy, so both options can suit kids.

Food

Constance Belle Mare Plage and Constance Prince Maurice both offer full board options which include all meals in the price. I enjoyed the food at both and, of course, when it comes to nosh, everybody is going to have their own tastes so I can’t really pick a definite winner here.

Prince Maurice has three good options, one with local picks, an Asian restaurant, and a beautiful floating seafood restaurant.

Belle Mare Plage has seven different restaurants and six bars so you will be spoilt for choice here but, I only had eyes for the fab sushi restaurant, Indigo!

Rooms

Prince Maurice was the clear premium pick for rooms if you want a five-star plus experience. Don’t get me wrong, Belle Mare Plage is gorgeous, but I’d say that you have to go for one of their premium rooms like the Beachfront Junior Suite if you’re looking for a luxe experience.

We stayed in the Junior Suite with Garden View at Prince Maurice and it was just perfect. The room had all of the bells and whistles and it was in a lovely, ultra private space. In addition to this room, they’ve also got larger space for families and groups.

If you’re traveling in a large group, however, Belle Mare Plage is your best option. They can accommodate twice as many people and with more options in terms of restaurants, bars, and activities, you have a better chance of finding a crowd-pleaser every day here.

Activities

In terms of things to do, it’s going to come down to your group size again. For couples, especially those who love the beach (and, really, you’ve got to adore the sun and sand to make this journey), Prince Maurice is my suggestion.

If you want something more high energy with a huge beach to run around on and enjoy, go for Belle Mare Plage.

Both options have pools, snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, glass bottom boat trips, waterskiing, and golfing, but everything is on a larger scale at Belle Mare Plage.
