Paradise in the Seychelles!
We arrived for 5 nights celebrating my partner's birthday, an amazing resort in every way, rooms, cleanliness, excellent meals, The infinity pool, the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles and above all - exceptional service from all the resort staff, Starting with Karim the buggy driver, Eva the reception manager, Julia on the phone service and Fernando the hotel manager who made sure we did not miss anything, we will definitely return Constance Lemuria - from now, our favorite resort in the Seychelles!
מלון מעולה. דגשים לשומרי כשרות בפנים
We've been spending three days at the hotel and are expected to leave tomorrow. Enjoy every moment - the tranquility, the conditions, the beach and all the services that the hotel offers. We are religious Jews who keep kosher and greatly appreciate the effort and willingness of the hotel staff to give us an answer. The hotel chef, Lalit, went above and beyond to come to us with everything we needed. Including the use of our dedicated cooking utensils, a customized menu and more ... Beach - Anse Georgette is amazing and really recommended to go to.
We spent our Honeymoon week at the exceptional Lemuria Hotel. First of all the check-in experience made by Eva (Guest Relation Manager) and her team is the perfect definition of an experience. We were speechless immediately after our first minutes at the Resort. Everything was noted, repeated to make sure that our schedule of the week was correct. They offered us immediately seated a welcome drink and we were escorted to our amazing Senior Suite with a lof of gifts waiting for us in the room and the bed. It was the most incredible check-in experience I had in my luxury travel life. Discovering the resort with its fabulous restaurant locations, SPA, Golf course is an evasion inside your trip. The hotel has 3 exceptional beaches and Lindsay the beach boy from Day 1 took care of us for the entire week - thanks to him for his attention and service. You need to meet Jerome - Head Sommelier - and his great team and discover the wine tasting experience in the huge private wine cellar. We had the chance to be pampered by Eva and her team with daily special attention and that is very unique. Special thanks as well to Mita - waitress at the Nest Restaurant - for her service and hospitality during our private sunset diner at On The Rocks (Experience to book in advance as well... I would like to thank you Mr Le Gac - General Manager - and his entire team for this dream we will never forget. By far the most beautiful hotel of the Seychelles. A place to visit with no doubt for its luxury accomodation, perfect loction on the beach and for its personallized service. The Lemuria is the perfect reflect of LHW reputation. Thank you and congratulations for your incredible work.
Wine, food, and service for our blissful beach stay
What a lovely stay! I can echo what many other reivews have said about the property - the food is spectacular, the wine is excellent and selection is comprehensive, and the beaches are gorgeous. We spent every afternoon with Jerome learning about wines from all over - New World and Old World. He's knowledgable, fun to talk to, and his enthusiasm is infectious. For us, French wines are a bit overwhelming and Jerome shed some light for us. I appreciated that he was able to relate the French wines, both grapes and regions, to wine regions with which we are familiar. It helped us not only build our knowledge but also build comparisons and recognize subtleties. In addition to his wine knowledge, Jerome has service perfectly dialed. Early in the week we mentioned a winery we had stayed at a few years ago, later in the week we were tasting one of that winery’s best wines. Also, we somehow missed a reservation one evening at Diva only to find the restaurant booked completely. Jerome, on the spot, organized a dinner in the wine cellar for us. One evening we enjoyed the wine dinner at Diva. Jerome had some great pairings during our wine tastings as well as the wine dinner. We've been fortunate to experience wine dinners in various contries and we'd put this wine dinner in the Top 5. I enjoyed the champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs, 2007 with the steak tartar and my partner enjoyed the Cote-Rotie Champin le Seigneur, 2016 paired with the wagyu beef. We regularly had Emma as our server, and she's a true delight. A big smile, a friendly demeanor, and kindness always. It was always a joy when we'd see her approaching our table. Maria Luisa and Eva were always around to answer questions and make reservations for us. Both were prompt with my various WhatsApp inquiries and I appreciated that. The connection through WhatsApp made everything so easy. It was typically at the beach when/where we would discuss our evening plans or the plans for tomorrow so WhatsApp made it easy to immediatly communicate. No need to walk to the front desk or call from the room. Overall the service was kind and friendly. We found everything ran on time and efficiently, not island time, but we did have the island kindness and friendlyliness and ease of conversation everywhere we went. Other notable staff were Valerie and Jeannette at breakfast and Lindsay at the beach. We appreciated the champagne on arrival, the Constance Lemuria golf shirts, and the beach bag. We certain used the beach bag all week! I appreciate the small steps the resort has taken towards sustainability, for example, not having single use bath products. And I recognize that with COVID-19 many things have had to change but I’d like to see the resort have less individually wrapped things. Also, make a move away from plastic water bottles. For example, at other resorts we’ve been given a water bottle and the resort has filling stations around the property. At three bottles a day for 300+ guests I can’t imagine how many plastic bottles are used! The property is well maintained and never felt congested. There’s plenty of room at the beach, or by the pool. There is always a sunny spot or a shaded area available. If anything, just plan your dinner reservations early as the restaurants do book out. Our junior suite was good. It provided plenty of space, we were able to easily connect our devices to the tv, we enjoyed the espresso, there was plenty of light in the room, and plenty of seating. It was nice to have some space in the air conditioning on the days that we were hot and just over the sun. It didn’t rain during our stay so I can’t speak to what the resort might be like during rain. However, there are several spaces throughout the resort that are covered so I assume you wouldn’t be relegated only to your room during rain. The golf course is beautiful, but narrow, and challenging. And finally, we flew into Mahe and then booked the helicopter transfer to Praslin. We absolutely recommend this, it was seamless, and saved us an additional transfer on Praslin since the helicopter lands on the 14th hole of the golf course. We definitely recommend Lemuria and hope to find our way to another Constance property in the future.
The wine dinner was absolutely the highlight of our stay!
You can read a lot about the hotel in other reviews, I'll focus specifically on the wine dinner in the constance wine cellar. The dinner is absolutely a must! You get a 5 course meal, the food quality is simply above and beyond, it was easily the best meal in seychelles, and could probably be served in any top quality restaurant in France. But that was just the beginning , the real start of the night was our sommelier Jerome, he is very, very, professional and did an amazing job pairing top notch wines to every dish. We drank 5 extremely generous glasses of the finest french wines. Even thought the dinner isn't cheap, when you look at the value for money, it's really worth it. Now back to Jerome, this guy really made the dinner, he is sooo fun, just hearing him explain about the food and wine makes it much tastier. Do not miss this!
