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.

There were a few issues with food and menu changes in the middle of our stay, which weren’t going very smoothly, but the excellent new manager quickly nipped this in the bud and towards the end this greatly improved. Bit shout out to Lovesh! Definitely recommend the turtle trip with the lads from the beach :) Read less

Overall experience was good. Staff was friendly and plentiful! Public areas clean, well maintained and loads to do. Read less

Couldn't be happier with my stay. The lads working are all amazing. Never a moment went bye when we weren't offered a drink. Food brilliant and the gents working the water sports and volley ball/bocce ball make the resort.
