Jean-Jacques Vallet
Constance Hotels and Resorts

Jean Jacques Vallet is the CEO of Constance Hotels & Resorts, which owns and operates seven high-end luxury hotels in the Indian Ocean. He has been a part of the group since 1994, when he was appointed to be in charge of Finance, Operations and Developments. Holder of a Master’s Degree in Management Science and a post graduate in Industrial and Commercial Logistics, Jean Jacques has lived and breathed Constance for the past two decades. As such, he had a hand in the group’s major projects, namely the construction of the Constance Le Prince Maurice and Constance Lemuria Seychelles. In 2002, he championed the renovation of the Constance Belle Mare Plage, the flagship of the group, and, with the support and commitment of his team, he helped transform the hotel in the award winning beauty it is today. He was also heavily involved in all of the group’s subsequent endeavours: the construction of the Constance Halaveli Maldives, Constance Ephelia Seychelles, Constance Moofushi Maldives and Constance Tsarabanjina Madagascar hotels. Board member of the Association of Hoteliers and Restaurants in Mauritius (AHRIM) since 2000, Jean Jacques had two spells as chairman of this organisation, between 2002 and 2004, and from 2010to 2012. The culmination of this rich career happened in 2012, when he was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Constance Hotels Experience, as the group was known at the time. His first order of business: a rebranding exercise for the group and its hotels, launching the Constance Hotels & Resorts brand, by the end of 2012. Since then, things have only improved for the group, as showcased by the soaring rating of its hotels and resorts on Review Pro and Trip Advisor. Passionate and determined, Jean Jacques has always led his teams and projects with a clear and well defined goal: continuous improvement and the maximization of the clients’ well-being. Thus, his approach fits perfectly with the values and traditions of the group, which relies on its motivated and enthusiastic team.Without a doubt, the team spirit and thirst for excellence passed on from the CEO to each and every member of the Constance Hotels & Resorts family is the main ingredient of the unique Constance Experience.
