As a Constance Ultimate Hotel, Le Prince Maurice prides itself on exceptional standards of service, creating a very friendly atmosphere. Food and drink are first rate here, with the three restaurants providing a range of cuisines – Mauritian, Asian and seafood specialities. Guests receive a warm reception at all three bars too, whether within the main building or floating on the serene lagoon. And the U Spa, with its peaceful garden location, is a perfect place to relax with a massage, facial, or any one of a full menu of body treatments. Guests are truly pampered here! We recommend Le Prince Maurice to travellers keen to experience all the luxury of a world-class beach hotel, on a slightly smaller scale. It is also a great option for families, due to its kids’ club and Family Suite accommodation.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
The hotel is situated within 60ha of beautiful beaches and gorgeous gardens on a private peninsula, 35km from Port Louis and just 15 minutes from the airport by helicopter.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Most of the hotel’s main facilities are located at the centre of the grounds. They include a lounge bar and library, one other bar, business centre, duty-free boutiques (for clothes, jewellery, beach accessories and souvenirs) and two restaurants, one of which overlooks a spacious swimming pool. Set farther inland, there is the spa, tennis courts, putting green and kids’ club building. There is a separate lap pool close to the sea, while La Barachois restaurant and bar are actually positioned on a lagoon! The hotel’s special setting is enhanced by its rustic yet opulent design.
Guest accommodation at Le Prince Maurice is spaced along the coastline, nestled amid the tropical gardens, or perched on stilts over a natural fish reserve. There are four options – Junior Suite, Family Suite, Villa and Princely Suite. All feature air conditioning, satellite TV, hi-fi, Wi-Fi, furnished terrace or balcony, separate WC, and bathroom with bathtub and double vanities. Nine of the 12 villas boast direct beach access and heated private pool, while the Princely Suite has two heated private pools and is situated on the beach in a very secluded area of the resort. Each of its three terraces has spectacular views of the ocean and the lagoon. And it has a kitchenette, for service staff!
Many activities are available at Le Prince Maurice – watersports such as waterskiing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling are complimentary, while guests pay extra for scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, fly fishing, catamaran cruises, boat excursions and parasailing. Inland, guests enjoy tennis, golf and biking, for example, and further golfing facilities at Constance Belle Mare Plage just a 5-minute drive away. Back at Le Prince Maurice, lessons may be arranged at cost in tennis, golf, diving and kite surfing – and the hotel’s gym provides Life Fitness Cardio equipment. Guests aged 4–11 years have the run of Constance Kids’ Club, with its island trips, arts and crafts, cookery and computer gaming.
