Everything is great in this hotel, but above all it impresses vegetation! you live in a bush :) everywhere is full of green, on the beach too! the sunbeds are so placed that it seems that there are no people on the beach :) it makes you incredibly relaxing! If you want to have a beach only for yourself, go for a walk before breakfast .. at the beginning I just wanted to do photo sessions, but I fell in love with these morning walks. Food good, best at Diva restaurant. It is worth to book a few evenings there. Lunch is very nice on the beach at Takamaca Bar, or at the pool, overlooking the ocean :) The prices are decent. It's nice that you get bottled water in your room and on the beach for free. All 3 beaches are beautiful. It's worth seeing Anse Georgette, this turquoise water! You have to watch out for the waves;) Anse Kerlan is also pretty and very nice to relax on her. It is worth to take a larger suite, great accommodation! We loved the three-story pool overlooking the ocean, a brilliant idea! The pool is never crowded, there is no crowding on the beach. It seems as if there were few people, although during meals it can be seen that this is not true. There is peace and quiet in the whole area. There is no music or animation anywhere. Blessed peace. It's the biggest plus of this hotel !!! You can fully appreciate the peace, quiet and greenery. There is also a nice trip by a hotel boat to Anse Lazio! I highly recommend this hotel, it was a pleasant surprise !!! 100% of nature :)
We have stayed in three different hotels in Seychelles. This this is the best by far!!!
We stayed at Constance Lemuria for five nights only, but we wished to stay longer We took a domestic flight to Praslin, which is only 20 minutes, ideal, and the hotel it is only 10 minutes away. Lovely welcome by Mingmar who did a great job in assisting us with the check-in formalities Two lovely ladies from the spa came and give us a neck and shoulder massage, even to our child. The suite was immaculate as was the whole hotel. Room service is excellent, cleaned twice a day, with bed turn down service, even had candles placed by the bed side on the last night. The food quality was awesome.The buffet dinner is very rich and not monotonous at all, every evening having a different theme. At Takamaka - beach bar we ate once at lunch, but we found that it is much more comfortable and tasty to call room service and eat in the privacy of our terrace. At the Nest the food has been also good, but the flies that used to sit on our food were very disturbing! Regarding other services: we used the spa once for massage, which was extraordinary, and our child enjoyed the bicycles available on the whole resort. You can get a buggy to Anse Georgette Beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world,. Buggy runs every hour on the hour there, beginning of 9 o'clock, and 10 minutes past return. Sea is fantastic and clear there but very choppy. These being said, Constance Lemuria it is a hotel that deserves returning guests.
A good stay
Constance Lemuria was our second stop on our vacation in the Seychelles. Coming from a few days in the most stunning resort in Mahe, we were a bit scared to not find another hotel as beautiful as the previous one, but at the same time we were pretty confident that, being this a 5* resort with great reviews, we couldn’t be disappointed. Anyway, I’ll try not to compare the two and be as fair as I can. The main reason we decided to stay at Constance Lemuria was because of its three different beaches, including Anse Georgette, which is one of the most stunning beaches in Praslin. Side note: unfortunately during our stay in May, Grand Anse Kerlan was basically inaccessible because of the seaweed and the rough sea. First thing we noticed on our arrival was that the grounds are beautiful: super green and well kept. The whole area is huge - also because of the golf course - and depending on your room location you may need to call a golf cart to get around. Check-in was ok, except that we were initially taken to the wrong room (when we were trying to unsuccessfully open the door with the keycard and it wasn’t working we were told that maybe we deactivated it by keeping it close to our cell phones..). Once we arrived in our given room we did want to go immediately to the beach and enjoy the last hours of sunlight but we had to wait for our luggage that took a little longer to arrive. The room itself, a junior suite, was clean and nice, but not luxurious. I understand that the rooms were “refreshed” recently but I think that they need a major makeover because they feel more like Club Med rooms and not something you’d expect from a 5* resort member of the Leading Hotels of the World. They’re not very private as every building hosts 4 rooms (2 downstairs and 2 upstairs) and you can easily hear everything coming from the outside. In-room amenities and toiletries are also basic and could be improved. Petite Anse Kerlan is the main beach where you’ll find sun beds, the Takamaka Bar, and the Boat House. It’s a tiny beach and it gets kinda crowded but finding a free sun bed was never a problem. The water here is not exceptional though. The pool is just around the corner, and while it’s nice to see (is on three tiny levels) is not very usable for a swim. But when in Praslin you should probably head to Anse Georgette instead, it’s beautiful and just a 5 minutes ride from the resort (their private golf cart departs every hour, free of charge). Be aware that this is not a serviced beach and you’ll have to bring your own food and drinks (the resort will give you plenty of water if you ask). So, if the accommodation was a little bit underwhelming, the food was surprisingly good, probably the best we had in the Seychelles. Breakfasts were served at Legend: plenty of choice, no complaints. We didn’t visit Legend for dinner as we’re not fans of buffet restaurants, but had super good dinners at The Nest and Diva. The first is more casual while Diva is a fine dining experience. Reservation is always required, and as we didn’t want to go to the buffet restaurants, we planned all of our dinners on the very first day at the resort. We loved both places, food was delicious and they also have an impressive wine list. Funny thing is that at restaurants you have to pay for the same bottled water they give you for free during the day all around the resort. Takamaka Bar is ok for a quick bite for lunch with your feet on the sand. We used to stay at the beach till sunset but unfortunately Takamaka is not ideal if you want to enjoy a beer/cocktail looking at the sun going down: it closes early and you’re left in the dark with no lights or candles or music (we had to use the flash lights of our phones right after sunset in order to see each other and finish our cocktails). Drinks are also served at the (very good) Huna Bar close to the Lobby but there’s a strict dress code policy in the resort so you can’t wear shorts at the bar. So basically there’s no place for relaxed sunset cocktails. Such a pity. The dress code for men is something I would accept only at Diva, but having to wear long trousers even at the bar and at the buffet restaurant, considering the beach location and the super hot and humid weather, is hilarious (of course the dress code should be “smart casual” ‘cause nobody wants to see people dining in swim shorts and flip flops). Talking about the restaurants.. a huge thank you to everyone working there, we found some lovely people, kind and hard working and they really made the difference. Sorry if I don’t remember the names, you know who you are! Overall we had a good stay at Constance Lemuria and we will never forget the beauty of Anse Georgette
We stayed here for 4 nights, I so wish it had been for longer. We were really well looked after. The hotel is in a wonderful position and our bedroom was very comfortable. The food was delicious. wonderful buggy service.
Stunning Luxury Lemuria!
Having just spent 11 nights at the Lemuria I can confirm this is a genuinely 5 star LUXURY hotel. From our personal greeting by the Villa Manager (Hendrik) at the hotel helipad - to the delivered breakfast early morning for our return flight, the Lemuria was absolutely first class. Our two bedroom villa (one of 8) was huge and gorgeous with our own beachfront and pool. The rooms were large and exceptionally well equipped and were immaculately clean at all times. The resort is reasonably compact but even so the buggies and bikes were welcome. The grounds are very well kept with lots of staff and it was lovely to see how the hotel is eco-friendly including its attitude to the giant tortoises Donatello and Raphaella and their local Turtle programme - Robert the Eco (Turtle) Manager was so committed to the animals and the site - it was fantastic to see! The golf course was so, so tough but included some stunning scenery while the beaches were beautiful. However the conditions at times meant that the sea was a bit rough and indeed could be difficult or at times dangerous to swim or snorkel, even on Anse Georgette, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles. The food and restaurants were excellent and varied. From the Legend for breakfasts and evening buffets, to the Nest for more formal food or the upmarket Diva, all were lovely - oh and the beach barbecues too! The food was excellent, the variety good and the willingness to deal with gluten free options was fantastic. What sets the Lemuria aside though is the staff and the service - it is absolutely sublime. Bruno the General Manager and Hendrik the Villa Manager have put together a fantastic team who are absolutely committed to ensuring all guests are absolutely pampered - and we have stayed in many 5 star restaurants around the world. Particular thanks to Hendrik who spoiled us rotten, Uttam our Villa Master who personally looked after us so well that the only thing we had to think about was what to choose on the menus (!) and Sofia - it was a genuine privilege to meet you all and thank you from the whole family for the best service we've ever had. Thanks also to all the staff in the restaurants and the rest of the team! This is our second stay at a Constance resort after the Prince Maurice in Mauritius. They are both highly recommended. We'd love to come back!
