Tropical Attitude

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

Virgin rating

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 – facing a turquoise lagoon, just a free shuttle ride from the beautiful beaches at 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. Book into one of the newer villas to enjoy a private pool all to yourselves, perfect for a special occasion.

I was not sure how a hotel located in Trou d'Eau Douce would be but boy was I wrong. Above every single positive experience we have had during our stay I think the service was the most commendable.

I was not sure how a hotel located in Trou d'Eau Douce would be but boy was I wrong. Above every single positive experience we have had during our stay I think the service was the most commendable. We've had smiles since minute 1, till the last moment of our stay. One can absolutely see the amount of quality training the staff has gone through to deliver this level of service. Rooms were cosy, food was amazing, specially breakfast. Special thanks to the Director, Karen, Chef Vikash, Karuna, Ram and Seevangi from the eatery, the lady who made my day by crafting a towel elephant on my bed and the two maintenance gentlemen who volunteered to help us with opening our room door.
