World Bee Day: the buzzing event…

Constance Prince Maurice has celebrated the World Bee Day on the 20th of May, a date chosen to pay tribute to the pioneer of modern beekeeping techniques Anton Jansa. Conscious of the major need to protect biodiversity, Constance Prince Maurice hotel has dedicated a part of its land, situated in the Chefs’ garden, to beekeeping. This allows bees to thrive in this exceptional place and produce an equally exceptional nectar…

Exceptional men

Constance Hotels and Resorts’ Environment, Health & Safety Manager, Djaved Fareed, is the man to thank for the installation of this new venue. Conscious of the absolute need for bees in the upkeep of a viable ecosystem, Djaved Fareed reinsures hotel clients. Indeed, the hives were set up at a safe distance from the hotel’s infrastructure, allowing for each and everyone to live in harmony.

Bee Works Ltd’s Director, and Project Manager Etienne de Senneville, is happy with the project. Indeed, there are numerous honey trees around Constance Prince Maurice and if, for the time being, the hotel only hosts 7 hives, the main goal is to be able to create more in order to produce 100% local honey… and therefore provide clients with home-made honey to boost local business.

Educate future generations

On the 20th of May, the hotel has therefore welcomed students from the Poste-de-Flacq Government School and Poste-de-Flacq R.C.A to make them discover the beekeeping farm as well as the good practices easing the well-being of these honey-makers, their lifestyle, but also the honey-making process. The students were thrilled to taste the honey of the Constance Prince Maurice’s favourites. Let’s hope that this impulse is merely the start of a more global awareness and that will help all forms of life to be respected equally…
