This hotel is outstanding. Rooms and balcony are large. Food was excellent - lots of choice. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. We were on the AI package which included all the water sports and a trip on the glass bottom boat. We hired a car for a day and visited the north coastline and the Botanic Gardens. Also visited Port Louis... More

As previous reviews have said, this is a 4 star hotel, although difficult to tell most of the time. Lovely open plan 'common parts' (including large buffet area for breakfast and dinner), and plenty of different styles of restaurant for dinner too. We went for a all inclusive deal in an adult beachfront suite (BA holidays), which was a GOOD... More

The main problem with the Ravenala Attitude is the lack of information provided to you when you arrive. There is loads to do and a lot of it is free but if you don't know about it then your going to miss out. Once you get to find out about the free water sports, the mini bar stocking process and...

Beach lovely with a bar and plenty of easy chairs. Swimming pool large and in a nice setting. Water temperature in November was very pleasant in both the... More

To anyone waiting to go or thinking of booking, ignore the negative feedback. Recently home. Had a fantastic holiday from start to finish. Hotel an excellent all rounder.

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
