To escape to Verdict: Ephelia opened
in February 2010 and was the long
awaited    Mahe addition to the
Constance hotel chain. In a great
location with two beaches the resort
offers    a      wide      choice     of
accommodations to suit all budgets
from Suites to luxury villas, we expect
Ephelia to be one of the most popular
mid range hotels on the island and it
combines perfectly with its sister
property on the neighbouring island of Praslin.

About Mahe

Mahé is Seychelles’ largest island, the
cultural and economic hub of the Inner
Islands. The ethnic backgrounds are
wonderfully diverse with a strong
influence of French, British, Indian and
Chinese cultures.

The island is home to some of the
Seychelles' best beaches with pure tropical paradise right on your doorstep.
Towering palm trees, soft white sand and crystal clear water make for picture
postcard beaches.

The island is also the gateway to this stunning archipelago. With a backdrop of
towering 1000m granite peaks, and measuring 28km long by 8km wide, a
leisurely tour of the island by car will take 2 to 2 ½ hours.
