Constance has taken hotel ambiance to an all new dimension, possibly creating a brand that can only be upped by another C hotel.
C Resorts will be a collection of vibrant, convivial, upper upscale lifestyle hotels aimed primarily at those travellers born between 1965 and 1982 - an age group who want to escape from the challenges of everyday existence.
The concept behind the brand, ‘Nature’s Playground’, combines two complimentary forces: the beauty and simplicity of the natural surroundings with a lively and sociable atmosphere. This duality has resulted in the creation of 12 original guest experiences on offer – the ‘Cignatures’ – that will differentiate a holiday at C Resorts. These include ‘Cwing’ – grown-up swings scattered throughout the grounds; ‘Cascade’ - a giant musical shower on the beach, ‘Circuit’ – an outdoor fitness studio using equipment made from natural materials; ‘C Trek’ – sociable group hikes; ‘Club House’ - an activity centre on the beach with endless games and giant floating mattresses and ‘Sessions by the C’ - party nights on the beach until the moonrise.
Even the concept of room service will be turned on its head with the addition of ‘Cpicerie’ – a bustling deli and café in the heart of the resort where urban escapists can still order their barista coffees and freshly baked patisseries, taking it out on the beach or soaking up the buzz of the Cpicerie itself.
The French interior designer Marc Hertrich has worked on the design, alongside Indian Ocean based architect Marie Ange Kreitman Taylor and together they have created a warm ambiance and stylish décor that combines comfort and style in a contemporary way.
‘’C Resorts shares the same core values of excellence and inventiveness as Constance Hotels & Resorts but is the cool, younger sister, expressing its own personality through an atmosphere of fun and limitless creativity. We want it to be a place where guests can regain the free spirit of their youth and let go of their adult concerns.”, comments Jean-Jacques Vallet, CEO of the group.
The first hotel, C Mauritius, will be fully operational in March 2019. C Mauritius will embody the C Resorts concept and lifestyle and will be the prototype for all other new properties opening under this brand to follow. Constance aims to open two C Resorts each year over the next five years and is looking to expand the brand throughout the Indian Ocean, Africa and Southeast Asia.
C Mauritius is located at Palmar and overlooks a beautiful lagoon and sandy beach. The hotel is currently undergoing extension works and will feature in total 116 rooms, three pools, three restaurants and a spa. The hotel will be run on a premium all-inclusive basis, further adding to the social and lively environment.
