Wine paradise on the seychelles
We stayed at Constance Lemuria for 2 weeks this winter and had a great time in terms of golf, accommodation, service and the quality of food. An exceptional experience has been the wine cellar and the services around it. And this is due to the enthusiasm and professionalism of head sommelier Jerome Carlier and his team. With about 1,400 different labels and far beyond 10,000 bottles in stock Jerome has created one of the most enviable wine lists of a holiday resort around the world. Not only does one find the well-known prestige labels from Bordeaux and Burgundy but also a lot of more boutique but top quality names like Condrieu from northern Rhone or Chenin Blanc from the Loire valley. Apart from France other regions such as California, South Africa, Italy, Spain and Germany are well represented. You can, for example, order a Wittman Morstein, currently one of the very best and quite rare Rieslings from Germany. So you'll never be bored as fare as wine is concerned. Jerome is a world - class sommelier with a passion for wine,a very thorough understanding of his guests' preferences and the willingness to go the extra mile. Wine lovers, this is the place to spend your holiday ! Hartmut Leser Frankfurt/Germany
We spent 6 nights at Constance Lemuria and had a wonderful time, staff was nice, food was great and the grounds are beautiful . We also had a wonderful wine tasting dinner with Jerome that we enjoyed- really fun experience. Overall would definite recommend and want to go back.
The resort is stunning in a beautiful private bay. Rooms are large and well appointed. The hotel is beautiful. There are three restaurants so it’s really nice to visit all and try them. Food quality at dinner was excellent. A golf course to swoon over; it’s just amazing and I don’t play! But my family did. We had a fun hike up the hill one day. Worth the views but hard work! So many great things and would definitely return. If I was looking for improvement which is difficult when the hotel is a ten I would add some specials at lunchtime to vary the menu on the beach. Staff are helpful and well trained to make the hotel the best!
Excellent 5 weeks
We had the pleasure of doing five weeks here during UK lockdown in November 2020 - and without wanting to sound in any way smug it was truly an excellent decision (bearing in mind five weeks is a long time in any hotel). Well maybe a little bit of smugness (only) in the choosing of the hotel from cold - but everything else is down to the team there, who make it truly brilliant (and take as a given it's Covid secure). There is always a lot of effort that goes in to making something appear effortless in successful execution - and the hotel delivers in spades. The grounds are immaculate everyday, including the entire golf course (no small feat given the sporadic overnight storms in November - a small army has it looking idyllic by breakfast time every morning). Equally the service everywhere is pitch perfect - from the restaurants to the housekeeping to the entire bar team (across various bars). There's heaps to do (boats to various surrounding islands, spa, gym, cycling etc) and there is more than a nod to being eco friendly (including the integration of wildlife from the birds singing at breakfast to the turtles pawing round the island - there's even a turtle manager - where else do you find one of those). There is nothing that is too much trouble - everything is efficient but understated - never having to ask for anything twice makes a refreshing change, and even better its always right first time - from cocktails to room service to getting our sliding patio doors re-greased (yes we have an eye for detail but it was done within 5 minutes, random request though that is). Worth a mention that it carries a chunky wine cellar - with four on site sommeliers (and another in training) led by Jerome and Avinash. We took their recommendations for the entire stay as they were excellent (which included finding a balance on value vs the inevitable import duties - though many of the wines we drank were in fact comparable to what we could buy Retail in the UK which is some feat - courtesy of their multiple awards won - such that Chateaus are falling over themselves to allocate stock to get onto the wine list). Happy days So all in all, a brilliant hotel and great place to relax. Its in no way ostentatious or forced - it is just super cool and I'd wager if you came here you'd very likely think the same. They have a few other hotels they reported (Mauritius is their HQ - ironically the Constance hotel there is one of the few Mauritius hotels we haven't stayed at - we will). Anyway - hope this is helpful. We've done a slug of 5* hotels and this is one of the very few we've taken to write up, which hopefully tells its own story. BA culling the direct flight for 2021 is a bit annoying for them - but its definitely worth the effort of bouncing through Dubai or similar. To have one of the top 5 beaches in the world within 5 minutes walk of the breakfast table should be temptation enough. I will be going back - I hope this helps encourage a few others as doubtless once they've been there they will want to too.
Wining and dining
A big thanks to Jerome Carlier, his team and the Constance Lemuria Cellar! Stellar class wines and champagnes and excellent advice and guidance from the Head Sommelier. I must also mention the food that accompanied the wine, fantastic! How to choose a favorite? Diva, The Nest, Takamaka, The Legend? I think the Diva won it for us but we did have Jeromes excellent guidance at Takamaka too. We definitely suggest this as your next destination and we do plan to come back!
