A real jewel in Mahé’s crown, this large yet personable resort hotel offers something for everyone. It’s also an excellent base from which to explore the island.
The Seychelles offers a wealth of family-friendly resorts and Constance Ephelia is our go-to on Mahé. We have stayed here ourselves as a family, and we can’t fault it.
While it suits families with young children very well, it’s equally suitable for older children too. There is so much to choose from activity-wise that there is something to please everyone.
Days can be spent enjoying the beaches and watersports available. Or, you can simply soak up the sun in one of the many impossibly beautiful spots in the resort. Foodies can enjoy deliciously varied meals in one of the many restaurants.
We thoroughly enjoyed the local dishes on offer in the main restaurant, and be warned – breakfast is an enormous buffet-style feast! You will certainly not go hungry while staying here.
If you’re keen to explore Mahé and the inner islands, you couldn’t ask for a better base than the Constance Ephelia. Not only is the resort in a really convenient location, the concierge team are extremely helpful and able to organise almost anything. Whether you are here for two days or two weeks, you are sure to leave rested, relaxed and happy.
