Overnight: City Lodge Johannesburg Airport.
Today you will depart for your flight to the Seychelles.You'll be flying to Mahe where you will spend the next five nights at the sprawling Constance Ephélia, offering a brilliant, tropical hideaway for families and couples – its 120 hectares of land is home to a multitude of gorgeous suites and villas, a tranquil spa, a plethora of adrenaline-inducing activities, and four lovely swimming pools.
Set in the verdant, exotic flora of northwest Mahé, Constance Ephélia has a breath-taking backdrop of rainforest-clad mountains. The resort is bordered by two stunning beaches, whilst a luscious mangrove forest separates the north of the resort from the south. One of our favourite excursions at the resort is a kayak expedition from the south beach to the mangrove forest – a scenic journey that provides a unique way to while away the afternoon.
Split into two parts, Constance Ephélia is one of the largest resorts in the Seychelles, though it doesn’t feel like it. Instead it feels intimate and secluded, perfect for couples and families alike.
The north of the resort is home to the Senior Suites and villas, as well as two a la carte restaurants, the beautiful Port Launay National Marine Park, ziplining and rock climbing. Meanwhile, the south is home to more facilities – including the soothing spa, the kid’s club, tennis courts, three restaurants and a bar – alongside the Junior Suites and Tropical Garden View Rooms, and the jaw-dropping Ans L’Islette beach. Guests have access to the whole resort, either walking through the palm-tree clad pathways, or taking in the views on a buggy.
