U Spa by Constance

A tranquil haven in a serene garden setting, U Spa by Constance flanks a pretty courtyard complete with a heated pool, stone Buddhas and comfy honey-hued loungers. Treatments on offer include everything from anti-ageing facials at the Sisley Skin Centre, to Ayurvedic massages and medical manicures devised by celebrity podiatrist Brice Nicham.

On arrival each guest has a consultation with the wellness-savvy therapists to advise which treatments and activities are best suited to their needs. Each guest receives a Spa Experience Card to keep a note of wellness goals and preferences, and a bespoke wellness plan is customised accordingly.

Facilities at the spa include 7 indoor and outdoor treatment suites, a sauna, steam and ice cold plunge pool and a beachside treatment pavilion.

The Treatment

Sisley’s aromatic facials are renowned for both their relaxing and result-driven benefits. The Radiance Facial is a great treatment for glow and sleep-seekers and begins with a deep shoulder-dropping floral inhalation. A double cleanse and light exfoliation is followed with a deeply hydrating Black Rose cream mask then a lifting, pressure point facial massage. A radiance-inducing serum is applied at the end of the treatment. When I eventually come to from my snooze I leave looking like I’ve slept for a week – lifted, dewy and bright-eyed.

Other Treatments Include: Brice Health Manicure – a unique concept for the paws combining 3 domains of expertise to give a truly therapeutic overhaul to the hands. The treatment includes an antiseptic cleansing of the periungual zones round the fingernails and Brice’s six-step buffing ritual to strengthen and bring a natural gloss to your nails. A full massage of the fingers, wrists and arms helps release muscular tension.

Other Treatments

Choose from a wonderful range of U Spa Classic massages, facials and body treatments using aromatic natural products inspired by plants from the Indian Ocean, or pick from the collections exclusively available at Constance Le Prince Maurice.

In the Sisley collection, exotic Phyto-Aromatic treatments use the power of aromatherapy and massage rituals from all over the world to harmonise body and mind, while the Brice Nicham collection features treatments devised by celebrity podiatrist Brice that combine medical chiropody with glamorous and luxurious pedicures and manicures.

To Stay

We stayed in a villa on stilts overlooking the natural fish reserve. Designed in a colonial-cool style with airy vaulted ceilings and terraces overlooking the lagoon, ‘Suites On Stilts’ are styled in warm hues and feature all the luxuries you might expect at a six star resort; walk in wardrobes (unpacking service included), sunken baths, power showers, and all villas and suites feature a Mac mini and complimentary WIFI.

The Princely Villa is located directly on the beach in a secluded part of the hotel grounds that offer utmost privacy. Benefiting from three individual terraces – each faces a different part of the ocean and the lagoon. The villas comprises of 2 Junior suites and 1 Villa with a patio. Highlights include a kitchenette for service staff, terraces with dining/seating area and 2 heated private pools.

There are also Family suites with one main en-suite bedroom, a sitting area + a children’s room with bunk beds and a bathroom.

To Eat

Most of the eateries and bars are dotted around the hub of the main building overlooking the beach. L’Archipel sits poolside and offers à la carte menus with light Mauritian influenced gourmet food and themed buffet dinners. Try the divine layered crab, celeriac and avocado salad – so divine in fact, that I managed to scoff it every day for lunch!

Le Barachois is reached via a wooden pathway over that takes you over the lagoon. The floating seafood restaurant comprises of five decks overlooking the natural fish reserve. Each with unspoiled views of a mountain range – sunsets are breathtaking.

There’s also a beachside Asian restaurant which serves up top notch dim-sum and sushi.The resort is also regular host of the celebrated Bernard Loiseau Culinary Festival – attracting Michelin star chefs across the globe once a year.

Facilities and Activities

For water sport fans offerings include paddle boarding, sailing, water skiing, parasailing, Hobie Cats, kayaking and scuba diving. On land you can opt for quad bike racing, tennis or a round on one of the two 18 hole golf courses.

At the fitness centre you’ll find a state of the art gym, complete with personal trainers and ‘on demand classes’ via a video screen in the workout room. The wonderful sunrise yoga classes and personal stretching sessions – a mix of assisted yogic stretches and massage – became part of my daily morning ritual.
