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.

A delegation of 60 people (mix of Rodriguan and Mauritian residing in Rodrigues Island) checked at Tropical Attitude on 03 April 2021 for quarantine period of approx 14 days prior to departure to Rodrigues. A warm welcome was granted at our arrival, the rooms are nice and helps to live a quiet and cosy quarantine. The staff is so helpful and always provide necessary assistance although they are working in a stringent condition where they have to provide all services (from serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to other miscellaneous services) in the respective 50-56 rooms. Hats off to the Staff from Tropical Attitude. The meals are served on time and are up to my expectations. Thanks load to the hotel management to allow us complete our quarantine period forming part of tge protocol to allow us regain our homeland. Luc Harry Francois Read less

I booked le Tropical attitude for my 2 weeks quarantine in Mauritius and it was a memorable experience. Location- The hotel is situated in a calm and peaceful environment at Trou D'eau Douce. Getting up in the morning with this beautiful sea view opening on Ile aux Cerfs is simply amazing. The weather is cool and just perfect with the background music of waves. Room- The room is cosy, clean and is equipped with everything you need like mini fridge,kettle and TV with cable. Amenities- The wifi connection is good and reliable. The only minus point about the place is that certain electrical plugs are not functioning. Food and service- The menu is announced a day before on the hotel app and the food is 5 stars. The breakfast usually eggs and sauteed vegetables accompanied with sausages and pastries. Lunch and dinner are both excellent with great variety of choices. The staff is friendly and helpful. Overall, i really recommend this hotel. My quarantine became a peaceful and pleasant vacation. Read less

A homegrown hotel with a huge heart. The staff of Tropical Attitude made me feel welcomed as if I was part of their family the minute I arrived. I was completely humbled by the genuine kindness and love shown. The atmosphere is very pleasant (including very good choice of background music). The thought and care that goes into being environmentally friendly from no single plastic use to no waste food was a delight to see. Awesome food, whether it be for lunch or dinner, we loved everything we ate. The villa 109 was absolutely spacious, tidy, equipped with all necessary amenities, private pool and also a well trimmed garden. A place to recommend without any hesitation. Bravo and keep it up.
