Hi, have just arrived back from Mauritius and yes we did make the most of what can only be described as a major disappointment. This was a double celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary and my wifes 50th birthday and i was hoping for something special, sadly Ravenala Attitude was not it. We must have spent the first week complaining... More

Spent a nice time there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I liked the concept of 'tabagie' whereby you could have typical mauritian foods at anytime till 6pm near the beach. Kids would just love the big 50 cm pool and even the smaller 30cm pool is great for your little ones. Really liked the special attention when one... More

We stayed at the Ravenala for a week in June in an executive beachfront adult suite. The hotel really has the wow factor and we were not disappointed with the suite either. The buffet restaurant has a good selection of different cuisines and there are several other restaurants to choose from. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend... More

This hotel has been transformed into a 4-star and offers a diversity of food with various restaurants. Kids and teens will enjoy with a variety of games and activities. The experienced GM Alessandro is a field worker and he has instilled a can-do attitude to his staff. Water sports, whether in the river or in the sea, are amazing.

A great stay, we stayed in the adults only executive suites and as a result got treated extremely well. We had access to Ben in the sushi bar as part of our all inclusive deal. His food and the service from Ragu were amazing. The beach bar is wonderful to watch the sunset and loads of comfy seating all the... More

This is a beautiful, comfortable hotel with great staff, it just needs a bit of work to get the total package up to the standard is could be at. The setting is excellent. The beach is pleasant and there is a safe shallow area to swim marked out. The pools are spacious and clean with just enough loungers not to... More

We arrived back this morning after spending two glorious weeks at The Ravenala. We travelled as a party of six with two adults and four teenagers aged between 13 and 17. FOOD We were all inclusive and contrary to some reviews, it was fairly simple and straightforward to work out what was or was not included in the package. However,... More

The Ravenala is a lovely all suite hotel so the rooms are large! We stayed in the Couple Suite to start with which was spacious and comfortable. The balcony overlooked the gardens and the pool though views would vary. The facilities were very good, a lovely pool, great gym and a variety of restaurants to choose from. The staff were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ravenala Attitude (ex-La Plantation Hotel) is the first 4* All Suite hotel in Mauritius. After 6 months of major works, a brand new hotel has reopened in October 2015. Along the north-west coast of the island, an address beyond the limits of time… Nicely tucked away between sea and river in the middle of a luxuriant and exotic garden, with a majestic range of mountains in the background… The Ravenala Attitude is a mix of colonial heritage, contemporary design with tropical accents and genuine Mauritian art de vivre. No boundaries between inside and outside, cosy spaces flow into each other harmoniously… Here, indoors and outdoors merge blithely to everyone’s delight… The 272 suites, Couples, Adults and Families, have been entirely renovated. Refined and uncluttered, they are true reminders of the islands’ way of life. Strokes of blue-grey, toile de Jouy fabric, woven rattan bedhead and on the wall, typical scenes of Mauritian life… no limits to exotic dreams... In the adult-only wing, all the suites overlook the Indian Ocean. The plus: our privileged guests, feet buried in the sand, will enjoy their very private restaurant… The hotel offers, for half-board and all inclusive guests, a “Dine Around” experience in 7 of the 10 restaurants. Each restaurant has its own identity found both in the decor and on the plate. At meal time, a choice of destinations to match moods: “seasidy” atmosphere in the lounge-bar and at the beach restaurant at lunch time and in the evenings, “trendy-factory” spirit in the new bar-restaurant, feel like a stopover in Italy or Indo-China or a romantic rendez-vous on “Riviere Citron”? Guests can enjoy a wide range of land and nautical activities (at sea, on the river or in the pools); among many others, “Ayo Le Dodo” mini-club for the kids, a special teens’ hideout, the spacious Spa Attitude and all the Otentik Attitude experiences for a total immersion in the local culture. Holidays at The Ravenala Attitude have a taste of far-away lands… a voyage within the voyage... ... more   less
