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.

Beautiful, Cosy Hotel with a breathless view of Mauritius. The heart of this hotel is its mesmerising river where kayak can be performed. Room is very spacious with a pool view balcony which i loved. Entertainment is good with the water activities, kayak, glass bottom, safari, yoga, aqua gym, volley, domino, tennis & the pools are very fantastic. Boat staff are really nice all of them. Food options were minimal but tasty. Hotel Staff are very friendly & caring. I thank Caroline for her help. She is adorable. I also thank the manager Mr. David, to whom i expressed a concern & he was quick to act to make me comfy. Atmosphere wise it is a nice hotel to relax, chill by the pool or walk on the beach.

Being skeptical about a new place happens quite often thinking about leaving home, while at Ravenala the adjustment was automatic, the unreserved service rendered in a very beautiful and serene environment.
