Suite with sea view was fantastic! We particularly liked the ground floor with our own little private beach access. Water sport facilities are excellent as well as buffet and the very attentive service personnel. Only point to improve: Almost all the 'special' restaurants were already fully booked as most of the other guests seemed to stay longer and reservation is...

We weren't disappointed with this holiday that we had booked and looked forward to for months. The service was excellent and we managed to eat in every single restaurant- even the supplemented ones. Tips for rooms: Family rooms near the river great if your kids are under 5 otherwise you need the mezzanine level rooms nr reception. A few stairs...

One of the restaurants at the Ravenala Attitude resort Unfortunately a late reservation due to pre-existing bookings, it was impossible to be seated at an earlier session. I suppose it's all the Europeans eating late. The stress showed on the waiter and he seemed worked off his feet. Once seated it took a bit of effort to be noticed and...

Ticks all the dietary boxes, really enjoyable facility. Has several bars and eating areas, spacious swimming pools and a small, and crammed up, resident night club. Rooms are clean and well maintained, albeit most are a boring long walk from the reception. Conferencing is well above standard, with handy technical support too. There are a lot of activities for the...

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
