My partner and I came here in November 2016! There was a few minor flaws such as dirty table cloths, cold food but the staff couldn't do enough to rectify anything wrong. The staff were absolutely brilliant! There was a waiter on the beach who was absolutely fantastic! He would always make sure we had a drink! The water sports...

We stayed at Ravenala for 9 nights in September. On arrival to the resort we were greeted with a welcome drink and cool towel and the check in process was smooth.

Returned from a 10 night stay during Christmas and New Years. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves at the Ravenala Attitude, and our children (4 and 7 years) had an amazing time, although there are some aspects which could be improved. What sets this resort apart from others we have visited is their kids club. The resort has a separate kids...

The worse issue was our room which was at ground floor 15 minutes far from restaurant, reception, beach etc. having around on the corridor from time to time rats and of course rattraps. Behind the room was the road....so..nothing exotique.....To go and come back from breakfast and...

Tucked away on the North west side in a sheltered bay this hotel was a great find. I have to admit we were a little apprehensive due to a fair amount of negative feed back after booking this resort, but we are delighted to say this was totally unfounded.

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
