The Hotel Reception were welcoming upon our arrival, and although we informed our Travel Agent that I was travelling with a man with walking difficulties, the walk to our room was extremely length and I challenged this upon our arrival. My husband did not want to make a fuss so put up with the length walk several times a day.... More

We were very unhappy with ‘The Ravenala Attitude’ in Mauritius and the following is a summary of the issues we had to tolerate. 1. The initial room was damp, the décor was poor with pieces of cloth hanging down under shelves, it wasn’t a suite and it had no storage. We refused to unpack it was so disgusting. 2. After... More

My wife and I have just come back from Mauritius and spent 10 amazing nights in "The Ravenala Attitude" This is located in the NW of Mauritius and about an hour from the airport. This hotel had the most mind blowing food with a huge choice of 10 restaurants to dine from. Lunch was spent on the beautiful beach with... More

We visited Ravenala for our company's year end sales conference. This is really a treat! The room I stayed in on the 3rd floor were loft style rooms very beautifully and morden decorated. Very very spacious and even felt quite lonely in the huge room (think this was a family room) with a loft with a further 4 single beds... More

Good location, super staff that did everything to make our stay pleasurable. The room was large and very comfortable. A chest of drawers or extra shelves would have been good but not of major importance. We loved it and would recommend.

We arrived the hotel on 5th September, 2016. After the long and tiring journey, we were welcomed with a refreshing drink. After that we were shifted to our room. It was very spacious and decorated beautifully. The view from the balcony was superb. Now about the food, as we were on half board, the breakfast and dinner were included, As... More

Upon check-in we were given a cold towel and refreshing drink which was so lovely after our transfer.

Spent 4 days at this resort on business. I've been fortunate to stay at a number of Mauritian resorts over the years, the last one being in the south of the island, Heritage Awali. There is little comparison between them in my opinion. Ok, Awali is really 5 star and Ranenala an average 4 star. Room was pleasant but the... More

We recently visited this resort with 6 adults, for a stay of 10 days in the all-in formula (which proved to be a great value for money package). All in all, the whole stay was unforgettable, it was exactly the type of Mauritius experience we were hoping for. Strong advantages of the hotel: - The experience and atmosphere: it has... 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
