Emeraude Beach Attitude

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

As the Mauritian drinks cart rolls up to serve you cooling cocktails, while you sink your feet into the white sands of Belle Mare beach after a dip in its turquoise lagoon, you’ll know you’ve arrived in paradise. In fact, it’s so jaw-droppingly gorgeous here, they’ve now reserved Émeraude Beach Attitude exclusively for grownups. As much as you could spend every waking moment on the beach, there’s plenty more fun in store – whether you want to linger at the seaside with snorkelling, scuba diving, and glass bottom boat trips, or you prefer swimming in one of its two tropical pools. But it’s the authentic touches that really make this place unforgettable, from the island-inspired treatments at Spa Attitude to once-in-a-lifetime experiences like dining with islanders in their homes, and learning to make Mauritian curries with their local chef.

I was almost put off by the weather forecast for storms this week but the weather has been great. The hotel is in a great location right opposite a beautiful beach. Really helpful and hard working team at this hotel. It’s not big and there aren’t any kids so it feels very easy - no queues for anything or screaming around the pool. I had a wonderful massage and the small touches like keeping my room until 7pm and the occasional pizza service on the beach made all the difference. Talita, who looked after my room was great and all the restaurant and reception staff were very helpful. The only negatives for me were the loud evening entertainment and the lack of vegetarian choices for dinner some evenings... also bring bug spray - I forgot mine and have been bitten to death. Other than that couldn’t have wished for a nicer holiday destination. Read less

This is a 3 star resort with a very nice staff. You have to cross the road to get to the beach but that is really no problem. Beach is very calm and everything in the resort goes smooth and relax. We were well treated with our wedding anniversery.

We have just left the hotel, wishing we had booked for longer. Hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and the rooms are well equipped and spacious.

We have just left the hotel, wishing we had booked for longer. Hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and the rooms are well equipped and spacious. We were in 115 and it was lovely and quiet. Had a lovely tour of the north of the island with one of the hotel taxi drivers. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a meal at the Kot Nou restaurant which was beautiful. Never had a problem getting a sun bed on the beach and Coco was excellent at looking after everybody. The hotel is very quiet and relaxing so if you want to party this will not be the place for you. As we were not getting collected until nearly 6pm we were fortunate to be able to have a late checkout which was much appreciated as we have a 24 hour journey home and meant we could enjoy a full day in the beach. We look forward to returning in the near future. Read less

I’ve spent almost 2 days there, paid for 8 with half board! I understand that it’s a tropical place but lizards inside the bedroom are not acceptable! The staff are friendly, food was good. The worst part is the way we were treated afterwards.. my husband has the whole story with photos and videos . But I personally advise you.. don’t trust photos don’t pay the full amount unless you’re very comfortable with lizards roaming around you while ur sleeping.. and cats setting right next to ur feet while eating.. beach is not private and you have to cross a road.
