Constance Hotels and Resorts
Constance Hotels and Resorts approached JPA Design with a clear brief – to develop throughout the hotel refreshed interiors inspired by Feng Shui principles that would reflect Mauritian culture and history and that would deliver quality and longevity.
Spice Island grace and elegance radiate throughout the public areas, each of the fine dining restaurants, the wine cellar, the luxury Spa, and of course the guestrooms and suites. From within the exquisite, sensorial interiors of the Lotus Lounge and Archipel Restaurant, a colonnade of beautifully tactile columns frames views out to the breath-taking beauty of the sparkling azure waters of the Indian Ocean and the slate-blue tiled infinity pool.
Natural marbles, local rustic stonework, carved wooden screens, rattan furniture, teak floors and traditionally patterned plater cornices blend superbly with the vernacular-inspired timber architecture to evoke a truly authentic Mauritian experience.
In the 76 guestrooms and 13 villas palettes of saffron, turquoise, olive, coral and deep magenta accents with bold floral patterns combine with colonial-style furniture and polished teak floors to celebrate Mauritius’s heritage as a significant part of the nautical spice route.
The thatched-roof villas contain bedrooms, living and dining areas and spacious, high spec bathrooms. They open out onto to private courtyards, terraces and balconies so that guests constantly connect with the wonders of the natural environment all around them.
Guests are also able to enjoy the adventure of reaching the seafood-focussed restaurant, Barachois, across a series of walkway bridges to their tables which are set on floating platforms in the sea.
