Dubai, UAE, 17 December 2017 – Constance Hotels & Resorts sets feet on the island of Pemba, in the Zanzibar Archipelago. The hotel group now operates its 8th hotel, the Constance Aiyana: a haven of luxury and tranquillity nestled in lush vegetation. Located on the northern tip of the island, on the Ras Kigomasha Peninsula, this new jewel of Constance Hotels & Resorts allows the brand to radiate more widely in the Indian Ocean, with properties in Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives, Madagascar and, now, Zanzibar.
Born from the vision of Ashok Sungkur, renowned Mauritian landscaper who fell in love with the island of Pemba, Constance Aiyana is an invitation to escape. He took eight years to give it life, using only materials and craftsmen available locally. An approach that fits perfectly with the one adopted by Constance Hotels & Resorts, which always ensures that its establishments respect their environment. This 5-star hotel was created around a beautiful garden in perpetual bloom, at the edge of a turquoise blue sea. With 30 villas and an intimate atmosphere, it gives pride to the beauty of Pemba and its inhabitants. A conception of natural luxury on human scale, in line with the leitmotif of the group: “True by Nature”.
“Constance Aiyana establishes our presence in the region and clearly positions us as the reference for luxury hotels in the Indian Ocean. This new jewel also allows us to enrich our offer to reach new markets and customers looking for an extraordinary experience”, highlights Jean-Jacques Vallet, CEO of the group.
As from January 1st 2018, the Aiyana is starting a new chapter under the management of Constance Hospitality Management Ltd., which will strive to consolidate its reputation and continue its embellishment. The hotel will integrate the Constance Hotels & Resorts’ portfolio in the same category as Constance Prince Maurice, Constance Lemuria and Constance Halaveli. The team responsible for bringing it to life with the elegance it deserves will be directed by Barbara Elkaz. Until now, she was Resident Manager at Constance Halaveli, having worked previously at Constance Moofushi and Constance Belle Mare Plage. With 9 years spent in the group, she will be able to breathe the DNA of Constance Hotels & Resorts into the establishment.
