It really exists. And in our lifetime. Nestled in a dazzling coral reef, two diamonds of white sand, bordered by the turquoise water of a lagoon, are the formal proof. It is on the islands of Halaveli and Moofushi in the Maldives that Constance Hotels and Resorts has chosen to install two hotels, some of the most beautiful in the world.
The island of love: Notice to couples around the world! Whether you are newly married, just in love or want to celebrate your 30th anniversary, these islands are for you. The “water-villas” available will allow you to suspend time and enjoy the luxury offered by these heavenly havens. In these small villas on stilts giving direct access to the sea, everything is thought to celebrate the love, yours, out of sight. Plus: a private pool on your deck, offering a view of the vastness of the Indian Ocean.
An extraordinary gastronomic adventure: The Constance Halaveli hotel has four restaurants on the island: the Jing, a gourmet restaurant where Chef Jordi Vila will be delighted to delight your taste buds by combining European and Asian cuisines. The Jahan Restaurant where you will enjoy your breakfasts and enjoy every day a buffet, lunch and dinner. The Meeru, a grill restaurant on the beach that will allow you to enjoy a meal “barefoot”. And finally the Kaika Sushi Bar where you can order the healthy menu proposed by Rosanna Davidson. The plus: an exceptional wine cellar that brings together no less than 1400 different bottle references from around the world and that one of the four sommeliers of the island will be happy to grant your meals.
Breathtaking seabed: Athletes and nature lovers will have no trouble finding activities to occupy their days. It is inconceivable to go to the Maldives without scuba diving, as the aquatic fauna is dazzling. Hotel Constance Moofushi offers diving courses on the most beautiful sites in the world. The teams of divers will be able to accompany you in this unique adventure. On the program, swim among whale sharks, rays and other colorful fish. Plus: a tennis court and a fully equipped gym are at your disposal on the island.
The temple of idleness: If the holidays are synonymous with rest, this island far from everything and everyone is made for you. You can relax for a massage or treatment at “U Spa by Constance”, designed to relax your mind and body. Nathalie will offer you group or individual yoga classes, before sunrise on the beach. Or at the end of the day to get up late. Plus: “Secret Jewel”, hidden on the island, a small corner of meditation under a “magic” tree to make a wish.
Most of the trip: If you needed a final argument to convince you, Air France offers since November 1, 2017 two weekly direct flights Paris-Male (from 698 euros per person). Inspiration and reservations on travelby.airfrance.com , the new digital travel guide signed by Air France.
