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

We have just returned from Mauritius staying at the Ravenala Attitude Hotel. The Area: The hotel is situated in the North. The north of the island seemed to be a lot sunnier and more 'Indian ocean' than the other parts that we saw. The hotel is situated right on the beach and there is a reef just out from the... More

Stayed here 2/9/16 for 10 days. We can only echo everything said by Susan who stayed 11-20 Sept. The biggest plus of this hotel is the friendliness of all the staff and their willingness to please without once ever looking for a tip! However, it is nice to reward those who have taken really good care of you. The Hotel... More

We stayed here from 11-20 September as a couples holiday. We were greeted at reception who took us to the beautiful reception with views overlooking the pool and beach. We were given a refreshing towel and glass of lemon drink and a member of staff took us to our room - a porter followed with our luggage minutes later. We... More

The all inclusive package was great for our family and the hotel complex was simply beautiful and so clean! The staff were brilliant with our children and nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed here for 5 nights last month as part of our honeymoon.

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
