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 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.

I have nothing negative to say about this resort at all. It is a beautiful and clean resort. The staff work extremely hard to give such fantastic service to its guests. They are accommodating and respectful at all times. One must give credit to the Mauritian people who work extremely hard at these resorts to give holiday makers a holiday to remember. I must thank the maintenance staff who were kind enough to build a wooden ramp for my disabled husband......AND WOW.....it was done within 2 hours of our request. Most of the staff speak very good English Nothing wrong with the food at all....very very tasty and DELICIOUS. My favourite food restaurants at the resort were A'Tavola, O Beach and Kot Nou. Now I must thank some of the staff who were always so obliging......Angela, Sheila, Artee, Anusha, Jay and Privitee. However there were 3 staff members that stood out for me.....firstly Gilbert. Thank you Gilbert for remembering my birthday on your day off and for organizing a cake . You are a star, a true gentleman and always such wonderful service and good conversation. It was so nice to have met you....Secondly, Lovelesh. This young man is charming and nothing was ever a problem. Keep smiling as your smile was infectious. Last but not least.....Sheila and her lovely ladies at the Tabaj...such stunning curries on the beach. Nothing was ever too much and thank you for your kindness to my disabled wheelchair bound husband. You were always so obliging to my husband where his lunch was concerned. I wish the Ravenala Attitude Resort, their Managers and all their Staff the very best. May your resort go from strength to strength. Read less

Sports village coach Working out with Amjad has been a revelation. Not only does he tailor each session to our particular quirks and needs, He varies the circuits enough to keep me and my husband interested. Meanwhile, he can carry on a thoughtful conversation and count at the same time! I never would have believed I'd look forward to exercising. Body strength, stamina, endurance, better posture and balance, self-image, the list goes on. he is of course, highly professional, and knowledgeable and has the education and certificates to back him.up. But it’s him “you can do it” attitude that makes you want to strive and come back for more. Caring, supportive, encouraging, a great sense of humour, amjad will push you to your limit and you will love it. I truly believe that Having Amjad for Your holiday will be one of the best investments you can make in and for yourself. Your body and soul will thank you. Read less
