Perched on the stunning coastline overlooking Port Launey National Marine Park, set amongst lush tropical gardens, Constance Ephelia is a sprawling, super-luxe resort with an intimate village feel.

Split into two sections: suites and family villas fringe the south beach coastline while uber-luxe hillside pool villas tower over the north. Several types of family pool villas and spa suites dot the tropical gardens between.

U Spa by Constance and The Shisiedo Spa meet in the middle of the resort to form The Spa Village – the largest in the Indian Ocean…

U Spa by Constance

U Spa by Constance is situated in the middle of the resort in serene tropical gardens. The largest spa in the Indian Ocean maintains intimacy and creates an oasis of calm and serenity.

Thatched treatment huts circle a hydrotherapy and thermal hub with a wonderful reflexology stone path running through. Guests are encouraged to use all the facilities before treatments to achieve ‘complete harmony of mind and body’.

The Treatment

Shiseido Bespoke Skin Analysis Facial is an in depth skin diagnoses using Shiseido’s ‘skin mapping’ machine – micro-images of the skin reveal any sun damage or developing fine lines. A skin hydration test determines the products and type of facial required.

Sure enough my sun damage and fine lines were prevalent, so I was prescribed the anti-ageing Ultimate Radiance Facial. All Shiseido treatments begin with their signature relaxing foot ritual, then a deep aroma inhalation. A double cleanse and gentle exfoliating scrub followed, before an anti-ageing serum mask was brushed on – with extra attention paid to fine lines. I loved the relaxing hand neck and shoulder massage that my therapist performed whilst the mask was cooking. This was then followed with another cleanse and tone. An application of brightening serum and a ‘lifting’ face massage completed the treatment.

As I floated up from the bed, I looked in the mirror and discovered my skin had a new-found youthful rosy glow!

Other Treatments

The Seashell Massage is an holistic massage treatment combining warm natural tiger clam Lava shells and aromatherapy oils. The calcium from the shells is used to naturally restore the skin and relax muscles. Performed outside on our villa spa pagoda – with the sound of the ocean and wildlife as a natural soundtrack – it was absolute bliss!

Also on offer is the Couples Massage Experience – which is followed by canapes and champagne served by candlelight in the spa pavilion.

To Stay

We stayed in a Hillside Villa, set high on the hill with spectacular panoramic views over the emerald bay and across the lush green mountains beyond. Cool and contemporary – a large living room leads on to a decked terrace with a private infinity pool and steps down to an oceanside gazebo with day beds. The king size bedroom has direct access to the pool with sweeping sea views, and is open plan through to a large bathroom (with optional dividing doors). There’s indoor and outdoor monsoon showers, a freestanding tub and a wonderful vanity area complete with dressing table and make up lights – complemented by ample his and hers wardrobe space.Amenities for all Hillside Villas include a Nespresso machine, mini bar, a good range of products, daily fruit and mineral water and private use of a club car.

To Eat

Corossol is Ephelia’s main buffet restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The restaurant offers an international menu – from tandoori and curries to pizza and pasta, it’s a real harmony of flavours.

Helios is a casual eatery offering a great Mediterranean buffet – choose from a selection of Tapas, Mezze and Antipasti or a thin crispy pizza.

Adam & Eve is a sand-on-floor al fresco restaurant with a great Chinese menu, and hint of other Southeast Asia flavours too!

The sushi bar near the pool open for lunch and dinner is not to be missed!
