Overview

The rooms are secluded and all have private patios and beachfront access.

From the scented cool towels you receive on arrival, to the exhilaration you will feel at the 15th hole, you are sure to love it as we do! The rooms are secluded and all have private patios and beachfront access. There are three beaches to choose from, a tiered pool with swim up bar, and great poolside lunches. There are three additional restaurants set up around the resort, each with its own flavor.

On this beautiful island you will find the Vallee de Mai, a botanical forest with various nature trails in the park where you will see the distinctive and unusually shaped nuts found in this prehistoric vegetation. You can explore the many white sand beaches and private coves, including the Anse Lazio which has been said to be one of the prettiest in the Seychelles. Nearby are several world-class snorkeling and scuba opportunities, where you will see the colorful sea bed with thousands of bright fish. Nearby is the quiet island of La Digue which offers the perfect day trip. You can choose from windsurfing, deep-sea fishing, catamaran trips and helicopter flights too.

Best of all, Praslin has two villages with incredibly friendly people and you can explore any area by foot. You are not limited to your hotels dining room, as there are several fun, local Creole and international style restaurants to discover.

Review:   Recommended for: Couples, families, anyone really

Pros: Great option on Praslin, where you can do an easy day trip and visit the famous Valle du Mai, where the very interestingly-shaped coco de mer is found (Google it!). Probably the most spectacular pool setup I've seen anywhere, with great swim-up bars. Views from the restaurant on the point are amazing.

Cons: It's a big hotel, with a lot of guests. Not crowded like you'd expect at a Waikiki or Cancun beach resort, by a long shot, however.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   My wife and I went to the Seychelles for some relaxation after a 2 week safari. There were many positives about the Constance. The property is stunning. It is well manicured and lush, and the backdrop of the hills spotted with foliage and granite is beautiful. The beaches are pristine. Petit Anse Kerlan is probably the best private beach a hotel could have. There was plenty of beach loungers when we were there. If you don’t get an umbrella, there is quite a bit of natural cover with the trees. Anse Georgette is a 15 minute walk (although the hills make it more challenging) or a 5 minute shuttle. The beach is not private but is so secluded that it doesn’t matter. This may have been our favorite beach on Praslin, even better than Anse Lazio. The pool is tri-level with amazing views over the ocean. They also have a lagoon area with giant tortoises, and a couple resident peacocks. The rooms were very comfortable, modern, and spacious. They are also only 10-15 meters from the Anse Kerlan beach. We had a junior suite. They were approximately 5 minutes from the Petit Anse Kerlan. Our room had a private balcony, but we couldn’t see the Ocean due to the thick trees. Housekeeping was efficient and consistent every day. The food and wine selection were top notch. We were there for a Lobster night at the Nest and also got a bbq under the stars where they probably gave us 10 pounds of various types of meats, including Lamb Chops, Prawns, Steak, etc. The meat was cooked perfectly but it was just too much! Diva restaurant was also very high class with an amazing wine list from around the world. The breakfast buffet had a large variety and also mimosas! The areas where the Constance can improve relate to the service aspect. Overall, the staff was friendly. There were some issues though. First, we arrived at dinner time and our bags did not make it. We wanted to go to one of the restaurants for dinner but couldn’t because of their strict dress code. The reception knew of our dilemma and we asked for an exception to policy. Instead of allowing us to grab dinner (even at the buffet), they wanted my waist size and were going to give me pants from the laundry. I am not sure whose pants they were, probably just extra staff pants. I didn’t feel comfortable with that and we were forced to order room service. That was not appreciated after a pretty long day of traveling from mainland Africa. Honestly, the guests are there for a relaxing beach vacation and the dress code could be modified. The service at the beach was non-existent. While they were good about the cleanliness and turning around loungers after people left them, there was no drink service. That would be nice. However, we did have good service at the pool and the swim up bar. They should provide more than just 2 bottles of water for the room. Also, they should provide more free water at the beach. They had a jug of iced water around the beach, but it wasn’t filled very frequently. I ended up paying for some bottles of water. Other notes: - The meals and drinks are very expensive. That is not impacting my rating, but keep that in mind. If you rent a car, you can easily go to grocery stores for beer, liquor, snacks, etc. which will save you a bunch. You also can then drive around the island to see the other beaches and the Vallee de Mai. - Dress code strictly enforced (see above) - Hotel on the flight patch to PRI. The planes are small and the frequency is once per hour. This was not an issue for me.

Review:   Awesome place to stay at in Praslin. Anse Georgette beach is too good. Everything is too good - Food, rooms and other adhoc services.
