Great Golf and Fine Dining Resort
We spent our Honeymoon in the first half of 2019 in Lemuria. We had great two weeks even though the weather was a little rainy for this time of the year. Especially the golf course was spectacular. And the fine dining at DIVA Restaurant. Especially the wine dinner with chief sommelier Jérôme and his team was a unique experience. Thanks to the whole Lemuria staff for a great honeymoon.

Brilliant two weeks at Lemuria with an amazing dive centre.
I must extend a huge thank you to Japha and team at the dive centre. The best instructors you will ever meet! They made us feel comfortable at all times constantly watching us from the back front and side while showing us hidden spots for octopus, rays and sharks. We were lucky to swim with turtles as well. We completed 11 dives over two weeks and couldn’t have asked for a better crew to do it with. Good equipment, warm waters and clear visibility. We will have to come back and dive some more...again thank you Japha, Kevin and Antonio !
This was by far the best holiday we have had. We really must owe it all to the The Costance Lemuria and its very competent staff. From the moment we arrived, they handled everything in first class style. We arrived early morning, and led up to the hotel entrance via a buggy on a lovely skyway road over the tortoises enclosure. Our driver was friendly and led us through the entrance with welcome gong, where we were then greeted by Eva, who checked us in and took great care in explaining everything to us. It was a surreal experience in truth, I wasn't sure if at times I wasn't dreaming the grounds were so beautiful. The three private beaches were amongst the best in world, and as business owners needing a well earned break, it was wonderful being taken care of from beginning to end. There were some real highlights to this holiday, the excursions (that we booked via the hotel) were fun filled and there was so much to see. We hired a private boat for the day and were taken to St Pierre for snorkelling, Curieuse Island for a BBQ and to see the Giant Tortoises, then off to Anse Lanzio for more snorkelling. Other mentions were the attention to details the hotel provided, we loved the finer touches. It was my 50th birthday and they got me a cake, and Marie-Noelle , one of the managers, gifted me with a certificate for a massage at U-Spa which was top class. The eco friendly options at the hotel, were also appreciated by us, and choosing to change our towels and sheets ever few days we were given a little handmade Tortoise. We were also given a beach bag upon arrival another special touch. The room was clean, and presented perfectly each day. The Apple TV in the room provided all the information on amenities and you could view your bill and keep track of what you were were doing. There was WIFI all around the resort including one fo the beaches, which was extremely handy. The restaurants, I believe 4 in total, were diverse and interesting, offering various different atmosphere and menus. and sadly we didn't get to visit all of them. sIn the morning the staff remembered what we liked to drink at breakfast , where the buffet selection of food was exceptional, and we really have to hand it to the customer service Manager at the Lemuria they have created an excellent standard of staff, and quality. The Seychelles is for certain not the cheapest of destinations, but staying at this hotel was worth every penny. Our only real complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. But we will certainly be returning
Money well spent
We have recently returned having spent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel. Whilst the weather could have been kinder to us (overcast and humid) our stay was nonetheless relaxing. The beaches are some of the best in the world and the resorts golf course is well maintained and challenging, particularly for novice golfers like myself. The suites are well appointed and the 4 restaurants provided different and tasteful food options. One of the highlights for my wife and myself was the dinner at The Cellar, an exclusive dinner for 2 with a set menu and matching wines. We were the inaugural guests at The Cellar, a concept created by the Resorts head sommelier, Jerome. We had our personal chef, Prakash, waiter Rudy and Jerome taking through each course explaining each of the food creations and wines from various countries and regions. Thank you Jerome, Prakash and Rudy for a wonderful night. We were lucky to be your first guests at The Cellar and we certainly recommend this experience to others that may follow in our footsteps. Another suggestion is to take the ferry from Praslin Island to the island of La Digue, a short 15 minute ride. Grab a bike and take the short ride to Anse Source d’ Argent beach on the west coast where you will experience secluded beaches surrounded by granite boulders as well as beaches to the south such as Anse Cocos and Bonnet Carre. You will need at least half a day to do this at a leisurely pace. After Paslin Island we spent a further 4 nights on the main Island of Mahe and our accommodation at Maia Luxury Resort (reviewed separately). The Seychelles is expensive but as far as we were concerned it was money well spent.
Beautiful Hotel with Fantastic Staff
We stayed at the Constance Lemuria for the last two weeks of September to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. From the time we arrived (when the doors to reception were ceremoniously opened to a gong) the team went out of their way to make us feel special. We had a junior suite that was spacious and well stocked and located in the beautifully maintained grounds. Special mention must go to the private wine dinner organised by Jerome; the presentation and flavour of the dishes the chefs prepared were second to none and Jerome’s wine pairings lifted the experience to incomparable levels. Also to mention Pratha at Legend restaurant who went out of her way every day to make sure we were looked after. We would certainly return and would look forward to seeing these and all of the other team members who went out of their way to make sure we had such a memorable stay.
