As winter drags on, with shorter days and colder temperatures, many of us long for a warm escape. If you're looking for a paradise to escape to, then Seychelles should be at the top of your list.

On his travels around the world he is always looking for the most beautiful locations and hotels to share with his 500k followers on Instagram. Michael was at Constance Lemuria recently, read on to find out more.
Tell us about your trip to the Seychelles. Why Seychelles?
“I’ve spent 3 insanely beautiful weeks on the Seychelles where I visited the islands of Mahé, La Digue and Praslin. I was usually looking for a beautiful tropical paradise to escape the winter in Europe. We decided to travel to the Seychelles and it was probably the best decision we could've made. Who wouldn’t love drinking a fresh coconut on the beach when the sun is shining and the ocean has this turquoise color!?”
In your opinion, who should go to the Seychelles? Why?
“Everyone who hasn’t been there should visit the islands at least once in a lifetime. Some beaches on La Digue and Praslin are barely found anywhere else on the planet. They are just everything you're thinking about when someone says this is the absolute paradise. All places are easily accessible for everybody.”
Regarding your post "Slow mornings in the Seychelles" on Instagram - Please tell us why this could be one of your favourite spots at the resort?
“I’ve posted a video where I was laying in this beautiful hammock under the coconut palm trees in the garden of our apartment. I was also reading a book there and the climate was just perfect. A slight breeze was coming over from the Indian Ocean next to me. I've enjoyed some hours of absolute silence and relaxation in this spot.”
How did you find Constance Lemuria?
“I was looking for hotels on Praslin that are close to the best beaches. Then I've noticed that the hotel has its very own beautiful beaches. Also it is situated next to Anse Georgette which was my absolute favourite in the Seychelles.”
Tell us about your passion. How your trip to the Seychelles and stay at Constance Lemuria help you in your passion?
“The hotel made everything super easy due to its beauty in every aspect. The whole area of the hotel is beautiful and a very nice place not only for holidays. It is furthermore a nice place to get creative with my photo and video content. It even has a giant golf course full of palm trees!”
Would you like to share a few tips for those who want to capture the beauty of Seychelles?
“Take your drone with you as it's a great opportunity to catch the beauty of the islands as flying the drone is allowed almost everywhere except nearby airports. I've also brought an underwater action camera which helped me to capture the astonishing beautiful underwater world along the coral reefs.”
The best spots at Constance Lemuria for content creation?
“Anse Georgette, The Golf Course, The Pool… basically the whole hotel is super beautiful and easy for getting your holiday images!”
What was your Constance moment?
“It is definitely difficult to name a specific moment as I remember so many beautiful moments. If I had to choose I would say the dinner on top of the mountain with an exceptional sunset view over the Indian Ocean.”
