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 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 had the most amazing stay at Ravenala Attitude, my first time to Mauritius and my husbands second (he first visited 20 years ago). The hotel, grounds, facilities, food and above all the staff were all amazing we cannot thank them enough. Our son had an accident during our stay which required a hospital stay (no fault of the hotel at all) and the hotel staff could not of been more helpful from the onsite doctor, front of house arranging out transport to the hospital, calling us at the hospital to find out how our son was, greeting us on our return and regularly enquiring on him before we returned home. The pool & beach servers were fantastic. The food across the whole hotel was amazing, especially the curries and traditional Mauritian food. I have never tried so many different dishes. On our last day we took part in the chicken curry cooking class which we thoroughly enjoyed and have tried to recreate it now we’re home. Overall we had the most amazing time here and was all ready to book our return visit for this Easter (only a few weeks after returning) but due to current world events that is now on hold but when the world has recovered we cannot wait to return. Thank you so much once again Read less

I would definately recommend this property as its beautiful property. Talking about the food as according to my nationality the food was prepared by Chef Bhupender and Chef Harish Singh were amazing as they prepared amazing Indian cuisine which were really delicious to its core. The resort has amazing beach which is taken care well by the resort staff, even the pool is also well maintained and cleaned by the staff. In short the resort has every facility to carter to your general needs. But the only disappointment is the hotel room which is not maintained by the resort staff, as there were lizards in the room and also there were issue regarding the beds. Still it was a nice experience to stay here as I would rate it to 4 out of 5 stars. Read less

We traveled to Mauritius - The Ravenala Attitude on the 17/02/20 and stayed for 10 nights celebrating our first year wedding anniversary & Honeymoon combined and we are so so happy we chose Mauritius and particularly this hotel as it was absolutely beautiful, every member of staff made us feel so welcome as soon as we arrived they honestly cannot do enough for you. 1st week the hotel was very busy however there were no issues in finding a sunbed we did stay mainly round the pool but with the beach so close you have best of both worlds. Restaurants plenty to choose from however i would recommend booking all in one go and planning your evening meals as some restaurants are small so quickly get booked up but the food in all is brilliant our personal favorites were the Italian & the Bistro but the main buffet is also great with plenty of options. Local beer Phoenix is great but Blue marlin is better, again local rum is great but very potent, many cocktails and wide variety of drink options. Special thanks to the Bar/Pool staff as they were absolutely brilliant always remembering our daily drinks from iced coffee in the morning to bringing us a beer bang on at midday every day, Mozahir,Shahem, Hrithik,Yovan & Yeshven all a credit to the hotel well done guys :) Lastly recommendation is to go and swim with the turtles this can be done through the guys on the beach its absolutely amazing and well worth the money Read less
