The Constance Lemuria Resort on the island of Praslin, the second largest of the Seychelles archipelago, has reopened its doors to clients after a major refurbishment exercise.
Launched some 16 years ago has the resort, the only one in the Seychelles offering an 18 hole championship golf course, has the Lemuria swiftly made an impact on the hospitality scene, with the brand of Constance Hotels then benefitting again from the opening of the sister property on the main island of Mahe, the Constance Ephelia Resort, arguably the largest in the Seychelles but also one of the finest.
Lemuria's makeover was in the planning for the past two years and the resort was closed between August and end of October to facilitate the workscope roll out without disturbing any guests.
A new trendy restaurant, new furniture and soft furnishings across the entire resort, new colours and giving buildings and facilities a new lease of life will no doubt enhance the reputation of the resort which only two weeks ago bagged a major award as the 'Best Luxury Golf Resort in Africa' at the World Luxury Hotels Award Gala Night in Doha / Qatar.
Sister resort Constance Ephelia at the same ceremony bagged the trophy for 'Best Luxury Island Resort', affirmation of the quality guests can enjoy when staying at either of the two - also confirmed by this correspondent who has several stays to his credit at the Ephelia and twice visited the Lemuria in the past.
Besides the two resorts in the Seychelles does Constance also operate resorts in Mauritius, on Madagascar and on the Maldives islands.
