5 Top Reasons to Stay at Constance Belle Mare Plage

There are beach resorts, and then there is Constance Belle Mare Plage. Located on the tranquil East coast of Mauritius, with a 2km private, white sand beach, turquoise ocean, lush palm-filled gardens and shimmering pools, this luxury 5-star resort is what tropical island dreams are made of.

As the winner of Mauritius’ Leading Family Resort 2022 in this year’s World Travel Awards (they won the award in 2021), Constance Belle Mare Plage is the ideal choice for an unforgettable family holiday. It’s equally suited for couples with romantic spaces and experiences to create special memories with their partner. I had the pleasure of a heavenly, albeit short stay, at this idyllic property in July 2022.

Here are my 5 top reasons why you should book your next island vacation at the chic Constance Belle Mare Plage.


There’s nothing like a warm Mauritian welcome to get you into that relaxed holiday vibe. Constance Hotels & Resorts are experts at making you feel at home, from the moment you arrive until it is time to say au revoir.

Their genuine pleasure and passion for hospitality are seen and felt throughout your stay, with intuitive, flawless service. The Constance Belle Mare Plage team make it very tough to leave, but that’s a hardship I’m willing to deal with many times over. 😉


While most people don’t spend much time in their room or suite, it is vital that your private space exudes a sense of tranquillity and relaxation. The beautiful Junior Suite did exactly that. With an ocean view overlooking a swimming pool and swaying palms, I felt relaxed and calm amongst the warm colours and stylish contemporary decor.

The furnished balcony was ideal for morning meditation sessions and coffee, while the Suite provided an array of modern amenities – air-conditioning, mini-bar, individual safe, Wi-Fi, Apple Mac Mini, desk and sitting area, telephone with voicemail and TV/satellite channels. You are guaranteed a great night’s rest on an extremely comfortable bed with cool, luxe linen.

The spacious bathroom features double vanities, a separate shower, a bathtub and a toilet, along with a walk-in dressing room and hairdryer. I love the natural Constance Spa range of bathroom amenities, perfect for a self-pampering session after a day in the sun. The bathroom scale came in handy when weighing my luggage; but not so much when it came to weighing myself!

All rooms and suites are orientated towards the Indian Ocean, and buildings are no higher than 3 floors with no elevators or lifts. Two Junior Suites are wheelchair accessible. Junior Suites are ideal for families with 2 children under 18 or 3 adults.

The food and wine experience at Constance Belle Mare Plage is a fusion of exotic cuisines from around the globe. Wine connoisseurs will marvel at the breathtaking Blue Penny Cellar, an exclusive wine cellar housing around 35,000 bottles from more than 2,500 wineries around the world!  

Be prepared for a delectable culinary journey as you taste your way around 8 chic restaurants and 8 trendy bars. A melting pot of sumptuous fare is presented with flair, tantalising your tastebuds with local flavours. As always, the service is attentive and impeccable.

Breakfast is a delicious affair at La Citronelle, a beautiful, relaxed restaurant with panoramic views of the beach. Choose from a wide variety of traditional and contemporary dishes, with al fresco dining as an option, either at breakfast or dinner.

We dined on traditional Indian Ocean Island dishes at the Deer Hunter Restaurant, located in the clubhouse of the Legend Golf Course with a lovely view of the greens. Hosted by Jason Poinen, the authentic ambience accompanied by fine wines, delicious food and the lovely company was simply wonderful.

The main course was served family style with a variety of Chicken Stew, Fish Curry, Venison Curry, Faratha aka Roti, Rice, Black Lentil Fricassée and assorted chutneys, paired with fine wines, of course. We ended with a cocktail-making class at the Deer Hunter Bar. The cool cocktails were very refreshing and so tasty! Keep an eye out for the Java deer that roam around the greens and trees.

Ehad Bhaukaurally hosted our small group at the Blu Sushi Lounge. This chic restaurant oozes glamour and style, with an emphasis on local, fresh and sustainable products. The Asian à la carte restaurant offers an extensive menu of innovative dishes, designed by Chef Alex Lowli Adani. The sushi was beyond sensational!

Chef Alex’s signature dishes include Black Cod Miso and Yellowtail Jalapeno, and several dishes inspired by Mauritian cuisine. Feeling thirsty? Take your pick from a range of Japanese whiskies, wine, a large selection of sake or cocktails.

Dining at the Blue Penny Cellar is very special. Epicureans will delight in the fine fare and wines on offer at the elegant, sophisticated wine bistro. Choose from gourmet cold cuts and cheese, homemade delicacies or enjoy a wine flight experience.

Our dinner hosted by Fabrice Maingard was nothing short of spectacular and a highlight of my stay at Constance Belle Mare Plage. The sumptuous 4-course meal was beautifully paired with wines from France and New Zealand. Definitely one of my top three meals on the island!

Our farewell meal was a surprise breakfast prepared for us on the beach. Toes in sun-kissed sand with the sound of the waves gently crashing on the shore, I could’ve stayed there forever.

We didn’t have time to dine at all the restaurants and bars, so view them here for a taste of what to expect when you stay at Constance Belle Mare Plage!


Fancy a dive in crystal-clear Indian Ocean waters? How about water skiing? Prefer to be on terra firma? No worries! Constance Belle Mare Plage has a wide variety of land and watersports to choose from that will keep everyone happy (some are complimentary, and others incur a fee). View the activities here. I swam in the turquoise ocean (pure bliss!) and spent some time poolside (there is a heated pool) before we had to depart.

Golf enthusiasts can choose from two 18-hole championship golf courses at Constance Belle Mare Plage, LEGEND and LINKS. Hotel guests enjoy a complimentary shuttle service to the golf courses and complimentary green fees. Read here for more information.

Unwind your body and mind at the serene Constance Spa. Tucked away from the busy guest areas, enter a tranquil haven that will melt all your cares away. Whether you choose a pampering massage or facial or opt for an exclusive Constance Spa treatment, the natural products inspired by the Indian Ocean will revive and rejuvenate your body and soul.

Kids from 4 – 11 years old are invited to play, laugh and explore at Constance Belle Mare Plage Kids Club, where every day is a fun adventure! Parents can relax while knowing that their children are in a safe and happy environment.


Explore the gorgeous tropical island paradise at Constance Belle Mare Plage. With seemingly hundreds of swaying palms, beautifully landscaped gardens, lush green lawns and colourful flowers, the resort’s almost 15-hectare garden with its 2km long white sandy beach and the turquoise ocean is pure soul food.

A stroll is a sensory delight, with the glorious sights and sounds of nature surrounding you at every turn and corner. Discover new delights that invite you to amble along at a slower pace, finding joy in life’s beauty and simple pleasures. Beach walks along the sun-kissed shore and refreshing dips in the ocean come highly recommended.

As with all Constance Hotels & Resorts, rest assured that Constance Belle Mare Plage is committed to creating and conserving a sustainable, clean and protected environment for their guests, the planet and the local community.
