My partner and I wanted to go away for my 40th birthday and after some research we found the Ravenela which looked lovely on paper. On our arrival we were greated warmly but had a 15 min wait for the room, but we were given drinks while we waited. The room was a short walk from the reception and it... More

We stayed at the Ravenala for 11 magical days and 10 enchanting nights in December 2015. The food was great- there was something for everyone from italian to oriental cuisines, our favourite was the restaurant O which was a beach barbecue by day and a starlit dinner by night. The only thing better than the food was the hospitality of... More

Good size rooms and throughout the hotel the design/ decor is very stylish. A la carte restaurants are really good (portions in the Italian are huge...we're going back tonight and I'll be ordering a starter for my main course this time!). Buffet restaurant is great for breakfast, not a fantastic choice for dinner..lunch is usually down by the beach...good beach... More

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel. When we got to our room ,we realised it was set for 2 people instead of 3 as per our booking request. Even though we called reception,no one came to rectify the issue.Late afternoon we saw housekeeping outside our room and we met Anourada who was very friendly and she provided us with... More

I wavered between 3 or 4 stars for this one as we got what we paid for.....a last minute budget deal. The hotel is clean and spacious and offers good service from friendly staff. The rooms are big but not upgraded to a high standard as suggested in 2015. The beech is small and certainly not the dream paradise Indian... More

We took all inclusive packet for 2 weeks at the beginning of January 2016. When we arrived, reception staff were very friendly and they handled all formalities very quickly. They seated us on nice sofas where we enjoyed beautiful view and enjoyed refreshing welcome drinks while they sorted out necessary paperwork. Our rooms were very nice and clean. Cleaning staff...
