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.

Well what can I say to sum up what has been a dream holiday for me with my partner....... away from the business of daily life to the other side of the world in a Tropical Paradise & actually ‘relax’!! Wow!! Very overwhelming & I was pinching myself that I was actually here. Waking up every morning to the panoramic view of an ocean on your doorstep. This hotel is rated 3 stars but I believe it’s more in my opinion. The staff are consistently professional, so polite, very attentive & really can not do enough for you. An evidently hard working & fantastic team turning the cogs of the wheel effortlessly in what is visibly a smoothly run & tidy ship!! You’re accommodation has housekeeping everyday, providing you with fresh towels daily & beach towels everyday also. It’s the little things & the attention to detail, from the men clearing the palm leaves outside your door to the man on the beach clearing the seaweed that’s been washed up. The staff remember your names & your ‘usual’ like they can read your mind.....I was presented with a cappuccino by Shakeel at breakfast every morning because he just knew & I do love my holiday coffee!! Avine who was so attentive & such a great person. The food for me was absolutely delicious, I tried everything knew ‘Mauritian Style’ I know there are specific eaters & they are more than happy to cater for those who desire a required taste but I loved sampling all the different delights they had to offer. We booked to experience the cookery class with Vikash ‘Chef’ we made the most amazing curry that we can make when we get home & reminisce our Mauritian experience. It was a fun afternoon, really good laugh & you get to eat your own cooked lunch. Vikash is a gentleman & very passionate about food which is a big deal when you go on holiday. He will ensure you are catered for. All you have to do is ask! The hotel have their own taxi boat & glass bottom boat. Sail you across the reef to the island ‘Ile aux cerf’ which really is like the pictures you see in a travel magazine. There is a little market & you can purchase some of their cultures’ souvenirs. You can Parasail etc or just relax on an amazing beach but we found the endless picturesque beach that stretched from the hotel is spectacular & just keeps going!! We snorkelled everyday & this was something else!! The trip on a glass bottom boat is brilliant...you can also venture over board to swim/snorkel with the fish if you wish & many more trips the hotel can organise for you to see what the island has to offer around the coast or their history inland. I’m going to miss it terribly here & I soaked up every moment!! I could go on & on & on about how wonderful all these things made our experience to be amazing & so I highly recommend you share this experience at the Hotel Tropical Attitude. I would like to thank everyone at the hotel for making our dream holiday. We will miss you until next time!!! Penny & John (N.Ireland) Read less

We enjoyed our stay a lot at the tropical attitude hotel. You can notice that it recently got tastefully renovated. We loved the style & setting of the hotel. The staff was always very polite and helpful - especially Shameem, who made our stay extra pleasant serving us at the restaurant. The hotel offers some services & activities without extra charges (e.g. the Ile aux Cerfs transfer, a cooking course or a la carte dinner at their own creole-style restaurant) that we also thought was a great add-on. Thank you Tropical Attitude team for your great service. Read less
