Tropical Attitude

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Those torn between ‘contemporary chic’ and ‘utterly authentic’ needn’t choose – after a radical revamp, Tropical Attitude promises both. All bold geometric design and luxe natural touches, this adults-only retreat gives grownups that boutique hotel feel and a genuine Mauritian experience. It starts with its location – on a lagoon, just a free shuttle boat ride from beautiful Ile aux Cerfs, it’s near the traditional fishing village of Trou d’Eau Douce. And it continues with its attitude – with real Mauritius found everywhere from its spa treatments to its experiences, including cookery lessons, a weekly ‘Made in Mauritius’ market, and home-cooked dinners at local families’ homes. Dining at Tropical Attitude is equally authentic, whether you’re at its intimate Kot Nou restaurant (which seats just 20 guests), tucking into Mauritian street food from TABA-j, or taking one of its picnic baskets over to Ile aux Cerfs.

Amazing hotel with even better staff. I surprised my husband with a holiday to Mauritius for his 30th birthday and this hotel made it absolutely perfect. Every single member of staff was friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff even organised a birthday cake for my husband without me having to even tell them anything, which made his day even more special. The food was fantastic. The Kot Nou restaurant is an absolute must- Vikash is an incredible chef. I would also definitely recommend having the lobster menu - Sunil makes sure you are well looked after. The sea view rooms had the most amazing views and the cleaner did some pretty interesting towel displays. We both have nothing but praise for this hotel and their staff and we will be returning in the future. Read less

We came in for honeymoon and chose this hotel for stay. We are pure vegetarians, who were not sure about the cuisine followed in Mauritius. Special kudos to the chef Vikash, who was very friendly and courteous and also provided us with customized vegetarian food options. Food tasted great. This place is on the eastern side of the country and was convenient to explore the different areas. Scooter/car can also be hired if you are interested in riding/driving across the country. We stayed in a couple deluxe seafront room. Has a great sea-view and was just like how we expected it to be. Good sunrise viewpoint. Overall, a great experience. I highly recommend this place if you wish to stay on the east coast of the island! Read less

Stayed here for 3 days to get a feel of another Attitude hotel. It was all in all lovely. Had a beautiful spacious ground floor room - everyone has a superb sea view. The food was exceptional and the staff are very professional and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. The beach is what it is BUT you get to book to go to Ile aux Cerf via speedboat on booking beforehand. Buses are plentiful outside the hotel - the main destination being Flacq where you can catch buses to move on further. A very cheap if somewhat slow way to travel but you do get more of a feel for the true Mauritius so well worth giving it a go. I would recommend this hotel - the Attitude group really do step up to the plate. Read less
