The Ravenala Attitude

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

All-suite and all-inclusive, the Ravenala Attitude is styled in contemporary, colonial and tropical hues. With an open-plan, no boundaries design, the restaurants and bars flow seemlessly towards the pool, gardens and beach beyond. But it’s not all about appearances — it goes deeper. Its ‘Culinary Voyage’ takes you from Asia to Italy in 10 restaurants, eight of which you can sample as part of your All Inclusive package. You can tuck into 'Granmamas' Mauritian fare at Kot Nou, street-food takeaways on the beach at Taba-J, and enjoy the romance of the floating Riviera restaurant. The kids' clubs provide various fun activities, whilst the Sport Village and Boat House offer endless diversions, from kayaking along Rivière Citron to riverbank yoga and water-skiing (only available until Nov'19) off the beach. And the hotel's ‘Otentik’ concept gives you a true insight into Mauritius, in cookery classes, local music, a self-guided tours app, and a weekly ‘Otentik Bazar’, with all profits from the ‘made in Mauritius’ goodies going to the craftspeople. You can even dine on ‘Otentik Dinners’ with locals in their homes. This charming resort is great for families, with large rooms and a range of activities, whilst couples will love staying in the Executive Beachfront Adult Suites in the adults-only section.

We arrived here on 1st October for our wedding and honeymoon and after 3 weeks I feel like a have made a new family with the Ravenala lot, it is almost with a broken heart we have had to leave. The hotel itself is beautiful with many different things to do and see but it is the ravenala family that make this place what it is. Over the 3 weeks we were there we met some amazing people who will always have a place in our hearts. Everyone went above and beyond to make our time so special. Special mentions to- Rachelle was our wedding planner and she was so great, she always had a smile on her face and nothing was ever too much trouble. Jessica from the spa did my hair and make up and did a great job. Oliver and Vivan who helped at our wedding were absolutely brilliant!! Thank you so much guys for being apart of our special day and for making it so incredibly perfect! Kishan who looked after us on the beach was so lovely and always made sure we were ok were well looked after. Dylan and Yovan always made the yummiest cocktails I have ever tasted and were an absolute joy to be around! Lovelesh and avishek who worked in the Italian restaurant always went that extra mile to make our evenings at the restaurant so special. Dj Owen who always played our favourite songs in the night club and did a great disco! The reception team were always so helpful, happy and smiley and always made sure everything was perfect! I could go on and on about how amazing this place is and how lovely the ravenala family are. It has honestly been the best 3 weeks of our lives and we can’t thank you all enough for making it so special! Read less

The staff is always very friendly, especially the waiters at the pool (shout out to Shahem and Mozahir!) who even let us create our own cocktail with the spiced rum. Our room was always very clean, and on most evenings we were even welcomed by towel-figures thanks to anne-marie. Overall, if you still have any doubts of booking this hotel: don't! Read less

We have just returned from an amazing, wonderful, special holiday at The Ravenalla Attitude and can only describe it in positive terms. From the moment we arrived until our very last day, we experienced nothing but warmth, attention, happiness and joy from all (I mean all) of the staff and I would probably say that the staff team are the most professional, honest and sincere people we have ever come across. The choice of foods in all of the restaurants was incredible, including Mozaik, which blew us away with the amount of choice, standard and quality of a variety of international foods. We had no trouble booking any of the restaurants and the Bistro surprised us by setting the table extra special for my husband's birthday and even provided a birthday cake! (Thank you Chef in the Bistro for your efforts). It is quite difficult to single out particular staff as they are all wonderful, however we feel we should give a special mention to 'Mo' (pool waiter), Selvi (lovely lady in Mozaik), Mamta (lovely lady in Bistro restaurant), Venkamah (pool waiter),Anisha (wonderful houskeeping team) and last but not least Pratishka (Balcony bar). We loved our meal at Kot Nou and the talents of Chef Major, Chef Hossim, Angela, Akash and the others have also to be recognized. All the staff are a credit to the hotel, and we cannot find anything to complain about and we would definitely recommend this hotel - you will not be disappointed. Thank you Ravenala Attitude for such an amazing holiday and memorable time in Mauritius. Read less

Ravanala Attitude was amazing! The service from the whole staff was outstanding. The food was delicious and there was tons of variety. With that being said, one place was our favorite and we ate there 3 times, it was called Lime. Nitish’s and Atish’s outstanding work in the kitchen kept us coming back for more seafood and Asian cuisine. Avishek went above and beyond as our waiter there each time and made sure we were able to enjoy their outstanding 5 course dinner even though we had to rush to make our flight. Every restaurant was great but Lime was our absolute favorite! Nothing was better than being able to lounge on our own bean bag chairs and have our waiter bring us anything from a cappuccino to Bloody Mary. Our beachside waiter, Kishan, did an awesome job and was always back with our next drink just in time! We couldn’t have imagined a more relaxing place to spend our honeymoon or a place with a better team to make it an incredible experince! Thanks Ravenala! Read less
