One of the finest and most luxurious resorts in the area, the Constance Le Prince Maurice consists of 89 rooms and suites, 11 of which could be considered overwater bungalows, though it's worth noting that they are located over a fish sanctuary so there is no swimming directly beneath the units. All rooms are luxurious, and there is a very long list of free activities (including free golf) so the luxury price tag reflects a better value than it might first seem.
Even though there are facilities and activities for children and families, this is a remote 5-star resort, so it's best suited to honeymoons and other romantic couples getaways. The setting is beautiful and the service is 5-star standard, though with a French leaning, so Francophones will feel even more comfortable.
The Constance Le Prince Maurice Resort is on the east coast of the small island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, which is off the coast of Madagascar, which is off the coast of Africa.
