The place is exactly the way it appears on the website which is certainly not always the case! The food across all the restaurants was excellent, the fact that it was right on the beach with amazing facilities and wonderful staff meant the fact that it was winter completely immaterial. On the one day it did rain we hit the... More

Just returned from the Ravenala hotel and it was simply fantastic. Mauritius is beautiful and the people are some of the friendliest I have ever met. The dine around options were very good and we never had a bad meal there. In the O restaurant in the evening they had a few dishes that you had to pay a supplement... More

Staff were friendly when we checked in at midnight, but things could have been smoother: 1. When arriving at midnight with an infant, you should get guests checked in quicker. 2. Have a camp cot ready in the room. We had to call reception for them to bring one which took 30 minutes. When it arrived it had no mattress.... More

Spent the best weekend at this wonderful hotel. Greatly enjoyed the various land and water activities with Rody and the other boathouse staff, as well as the exquisite food from different cultures.

Just (sadly) returned from our first trip to Mauritius. There is so much to say for this beautiful island and the Ravenala Attitude Hotel.

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
