Constance Le Prince Maurice-Mauritius, which has played host to many of the European Senior Tour stars playing in the season-ending MCB Tour Championship, has been named as a member of the prestigious “The Leading Hotels of the World” group.

Since 2009, the Legends course at Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius has proven one of the most popular and luxurious host venues on the Senior Tour schedule and for the past two years it has been a most fitting destination for the tour’s grand finale, the MCB Tour Championship.

The high standards maintained by the Constance Hotels and Resorts group has been confirmed by the naming of Constance Halaveli Maldives, Constance Lémuria Seychelles and Constance Le Prince Maurice-Mauritius as three of “The Leading Hotels of the World”.

The Leading Hotels of the World, established in 1928, is a prestigious organisation which unites no fewer than 430 of the world’s best luxury Hotels, Resorts and Spas in more than 80 countries.

The performance of the members is evaluated each 18 months based on 1,200 criteria and on 1,000 applications annually, but only twenty are confirmed.

In 2011, former Ryder Cup Captain and Open Champion Tom Lehman made the most of the beautiful surroundings at Constance Le Prince Maurice-Mauritius hotel to claim the inaugural MCB Tour Championship before David Frost beat Peter Fowler and Barry Lane to the title last December.

Meanwhile, Frost - whose win in December was his second in Mauritius having also emerged victorious at the Mauritius Commercial Bank Open in 2010 - was unlucky to miss out on claiming the opening tournament of the 2013 Champions Tour season as he was beaten by John Cook on the second play-off hole at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship over the weekend.
