CONCEPT Exclusivity, Emotion and Excellence A new generation of de luxe hotels: “the new elegance” in harmony with the long-lasting trends of leisure hotels. Hotels located in extraordinary sites, unique in their beauty and in their environment. Exclusive hotels by virtue of their location, secluded, safe and peaceful. Hotels with dream and fantasy which add content to the product. An architecture which espouses the contours of the product: hospitable, friendly, purified, integrated and disseminated in nature, majestic but mindful of human dimensions and with primary natural materials like wood, stone, marble; and having water for element. Hotels with a contemporary decoration in line with modern trends and even so smoothly in order to share and blend in the comfort. An accommodation, (mainly in suites and in private villas, spacious), a space equipped with all amenities. Hotels with a non-ostentatious service but pre-planned in order to anticipate desires and needs. A restaurant flavoured with the “ culinary spirit ” of Hotels Constance, expressing the native tang, enhanced by sublimated produce thanks to spices. Happiness to crown it all at the “Constance Spa” to take care of yourself and to be refreshed. Hotels that remember children thanks to mini-clubs for customized holidays to suit them.
CONCEPT Ultimate and comfortable A Lodge amidst the most beautiful animal reserves, in contact with animals roaming in complete liberty. The Lodge is accessible mainly by private plane thanks to its own landing strip. A Lodge consisting of tents, with perfect security and a unique feeling of closeness to nature. A private tent with a spacious room and a bathroom with all amenities (both shut off from outside), a terrace with wide vistas on nature, and with a private swimming pool. The Lodge overlooks a lake where the animals can be observed from the bar and the restaurant. The Lodge organises its own private safaris in small parties several times a day, always under the guidance of rangers. To crown the discovery, the Lodge offers also an international cuisine made up of local produce, with picnic meals and evening drinks at sundown during safaris in the bush. The Lodge caters for relaxation with its massage centre.
CONCEPT “An island of your own” An island, small in size, conducive to seclusion, calm and exclusivity. An island privileged in its relationship with nature. Proximity, perfumes et delicacies. An island where one is refreshed and regenerated in a timeless setting, in order to discover one’s own tempo, no pressures, no constraints. An island with no news, no television and no telephone (except for your personal mobile phone). An island with no dress code other than the pareo, and bare feet, in order to experience the regenerating contact with the sand, even at the bar... An island without any sound in the background other than that of the waves and the birds; an island with colourful sunsets “spread against the sky”. An island where one pampers oneself by resting, by relaxing, with sports, massages and a healthy diet made up mainly of sea foods. An island with a small house, on your own, with simple amenities but cosy. … An island, all your own, just for you.
