Constance Lemuria Resort, Praslin, Seychelles: tried and tested

With a private pool, al fresco dining area, sun beds, beach access and expansive bedroom, we could have spent the whole week lazing around our amazing villa, especially with a butler on hand.

But an appointment at Constance Lemuria's spa beckoned. I could have opted for a treatment in the villa or on the beach, but the spa experience is another treat in itself. The self-contained spa offers a haven of peace. Lemuria boasts the only championship golf course in the Seychelles, so the spa's also a fantastic facility for any golf widows and non-golfers.

Wooden walkways, surrounded by lush plants, lead to airy treatment rooms. I opted for an energising aromatherapy massage using Indian Ocean oils. The therapist took time in assessing my likes and dislikes regarding music, lighting and massage pressure and the result was a wonderfully unhurried treatment.

Afterwards I was served refreshing iced tea and a fruit kebab in the outdoor relaxation area. The total tranquillity of Constance Lemuria is reflected by the fact turtles lay their eggs on the beach under the watchful eye of a turtle manager.

On the menu: Facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, waxing, eye care, reflexology, shiatsu, hair salon, make-up studio and Shiseido's Qi therapies plus treatments for golfers and honeymooners.

Signature treatment: The Creole Seychelles Exotic Dream, combining a coconut and passion fruit seed exfoliation, papaya wrap and cocoa body cream moisturiser, from £150.

Cost: From £293 per person, per night in a Junior Suite including breakfast.

Verdict: 10/10
