Golf Vacations (Malaysia) - - Journal - BY JEREMY THESEIR A

Off the coast of Tan­za­nia, Pemba is a small is­land lo­cated in the Zanz­ibar Ar­chi­pel­ago, un­touched by tourism and home to sev­eral pris­tine dive sites. Known as “The Green Is­land” for its fer­til­ity and pro­duce such as rice, co­conut and cloves farmed by the lo­cals – which are mainly a mix of Arab and the aboriginal Washahili peo­ple.

The eighth ad­di­tion to the Con­stance fam­ily of prop­er­ties, Con­stance Aiyana opened its doors on Pemba is­land at the start of the year.

Aiyana con­sists of 30 beach­front vil­las decked out in min­i­mal­ist lux­ury dé­cor. Aligned with the eco­log­i­cal ap­proach of Con­stance Ho­tels & Re­sorts, Aiyana was built with lo­cally sourced ma­te­ri­als such as lime­stone and ag­gre­gates.

Guests can pam­per them­selves at the U Spa by Con­stance, choos­ing from a range of mas­sages and treat­ments, or re­lax at the re­sort’s very own shisha lounge. For the more ad­ven­tur­ous, Pemba Is­land is sur­rounded by phe­no­mal dive sites with healthy, un­touched co­ral reefs as well as a crys­tal clear wa­ter drop-off, mostly suit­able for divers of all lev­els.

“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 Con­stance Ho­tels & Re­sorts.

Aiyana adds to the col­lec­tion of ho­tels and re­sorts man­aged by Con­stance Ho­tels & Re­sorts in Mau­ri­tius, Mal­dives, Sey­chelles, Mada­gas­car and now Zani­bar; all lo­cated in the Indian Ocean.

Aside from its lux­u­ri­ous des­ti­na­tions and tai­lor made ser­vices, Con­stance Ho­tels & Re­sorts also has three award-win­ning golf cour­ses across two prop­er­ties; Con­stance Belle Mare Plage in Mau­ri­ties and Con­stance Le­muria in Sey­chelles with the most well­known be­ing Belle Mare Plage’s Leg­end course.

Since 2009, The MCB Tour Cham­pi­onship has been held in De­cem­ber at the Belle Mare Plage as the fi­nal event of the Euro­pean Se­nior Tour, mak­ing it a mem­ber of the ex­clu­sive Euro­pean Tour Prop­er­ties.

Lo­cated on the North­ern tip of Pemba is­land, Con­stance Aiyana is ac­ces­si­ble by a thirty-minute flight from Dar es Salaam in Tan­za­nia.
