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.

Very nice staff, they organised our wedding and did everything they could and made it perfect. They have very good food, rooms are clean and the hotel itself looks exactly like in the pictures. Though it has very nice location with a sea view , there is a rocky beach but they have a boat and they will be happy to take you to an island of Ile aux Cerfs for a day. Our experience was excellent and we would like to thank every one working there especially to Mr. Ilshad for making sure our wedding was perfect. Read less
