Important Information About The Constance Ephelia Hotel
The Constance Ephelia resort is located in Mahe Island in Seychelles. It is a 5-star beach resort, located in the northern side of the island.
The resort offers a breakfast only option, half-board, and full-board.
We chose the half-board option because we thought it will be nice to spoil ourselves a little bit and at the time it was a cheaper option than buying the meals in the restaurants.
In the resort you can find two beautiful beaches (these are some of the prettiest beaches in Mahe Island), 5 pools, 5 restaurants, and a few beach bars as well.
The resort is huge, and is separated into two parts – the very fancy suites and villas (on the hill), and the main area of the resort with more suites and the basic rooms, the beaches, pools, and restaurants.
Because the resort is honestly huge, to get to places in the resort you use a “buggie” (golf cart) service that the resort offers for free.
Every time you want to go somewhere from your room that isn’t close to you, you call the reception and they send a buggie to pick you up.
It’s very nice, and the drivers are super friendly too!
If you want to try some of the highly rated tours in Seychelles, that are so popular they are likely to sell out , here are a few I recommend:
- This private tour of Mahé is ideal for first-time visitors and those short on time on the island. You’ll see all the major sights plus a few you’d likely miss on your own, and learn all about Seychelles’ history and culture. The itinerary can be fully tailored to your interests
- Get a peek beneath the water—without getting wet—during this partially submerged boat tour of Sainte Anne National Marine Park, departing from Eden Island.
- Discover one of Mahe’s most difficult-to-find locations during this private hike to the Ros Sodyer rock pool
- Finally, here is a full customisable tour for 8 hours, which can be at your own pace. Swimming/snorkelling can be done during the trip!

My Experience at The Constance Ephelia Seychelles Resort
I’m being 100% honest, the Constance Ephelia Resort is definitely the best resort (and hotel) I’ve ever been to and this is one of the few Constance Ephelia Seychelles Reviews which hasn’t been sponsored .
The staff are so nice and very kind people, if there were 7-starts hotels, this resort would definitely be one of them.
If you want a spoiling, relaxing vacation in Seychelles, I highly recommend the Constance Ephelia Resort, Mahe Island, in Seychelles.
The resort’s beaches are a part of the prettiest beaches in Mahe (and in Seychelles in general), the pools are amazing, the food is delicious, and the whole service in the hotel is honestly amazing.
I loved our room (the Junior Suite), the food at the restaurants, the beautiful beaches, and the whole experience.
Also, I highly recommend doing some snorkeling sessions in the Port Maunay Marine Park beach! You will find there some beautiful fish and sea life.
Don’t forget to bring a GoPro camera with you to capture the beautiful sightseeing in the water!
