Special Touches & Highlights
The designers have taken special care to ensure that the Presidential Villa enhances the natural splendour in which it is situated, carefully planning balconies, windows and the swimming pool to make the most of the ocean vistas. Interiors are breezy and calming, with an emphasis on a tranquil palette – with occasional brilliant bursts of colour - and natural fibres. Outside, extensive timber decking is home to comfortable sun loungers and generous umbrellas that provide shady spots to pass the day. Furniture is modern and unfussy, and the villa is dotted with occasional pieces of sculpture or art that take their cues from nature.
Mahé is the largest island in the Seychelles archipelago and is also home to the nation’s capital, Victoria. The Constance Ephelia resort is situated in Port Launay Marine National Park, which is the only marine park accessible from both land and sea. Port Launay has eight spectacular sandy beaches shaded by takamake trees. The plankton-rich waters of the Indian Ocean attract massive whale sharks and yacht charters as well as divers make the most of their presence to observe these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
The Constance Ephelia resort has five different restaurants, including buffet-style Corossol, casual-chic Helios on South Beach, Asian cuisine Adam & Eve, a la carte signature restaurant Cyann, and all-day Seselwa, which serves Creole food. Child-friendly menus are available.
Each restaurant also has its own bar area while the main Zee bar has three different areas, including ‘bar beds’ on the outdoor deck for late-night star gazing.
The 5 000m² / 16 400ft² Spa de Constance is more of a village than a spa! Set in lush gardens, it has 11 single treatment rooms, a double room, a hair salon, a yoga pavilion and individual rooms for facials and nail treatments. There are three Shiseido rooms with special scrub areas and Japanese baths, each nestled in a beautiful private garden. The ‘wet’ facilities encompass a steam room, a Kneipp foot path, a Jacuzzi, and still, reflective and thermal pools.
Other facilities for guests includes a supervised Kids’ Club with educational and fun games, tennis and squash courts, a climbing wall, zip line, and extensive water sports like pedal boats, wind surfing, kayaking and PADI diving.
The Presidential Villa can sleep up to six adults in three double bedrooms. Staff can converse in English, French, Italian, Russian and German.
April is generally considered the best month in the Seychelles as the winds are at their lowest and the temperatures moderate.
May to October is the dry season, with July and August having the least rain and the hottest days, which average around 27°C / 81°F. By November, the rainy season commences; January and February are generally the Seychelles’ wettest months.
There are three bedrooms that are each housed in separate suites connected by wooden walkways for complete privacy. Large glass sliding doors allow the soft sea breezes to cool the rooms.
All bedrooms are en suite with tubs and showers. The bathrooms are open plan and connect seamlessly to the bedroom area.
Like the rest of the villa, the living and dining areas have vaulted timber ceilings and wooden floors. Furniture is contemporary and comfortable, and colourful artworks occasionally punctuate the largely neutral space. The living room is equipped with an LCD television, DVD player, iPod docking station, complimentary Wi-Fi and a mini wine cooler.
The Seychelles’ balmy climate is ideal for long days outside and the Presidential Villa is equipped with plenty of sun loungers, chairs, tables and umbrellas to ensure you are always comfortable around the exclusive-use swimming pool.
