We had a superb honeymoon at the Tropical Attitude. The Tripadvisor reviews convinced us that this hotel should be our choice in Mauritius. From the outset, we were absolutely blown away with the gorgeous location of this property. What you see in the pictures, is exactly what you get! We were greeted by a courteous staff member and given a room (107) with a stunning view of the pier and the Mauritian coastline. We were however a bit unfortunate with the weather, (cyclone Dumile decided to play spoil sport!), but we felt safe and secure at the resort with their regular updates about Dumile. The Resort manager took time out to speak to us personally and suggest what we could/couldn't, should/should'nt do with the weather playing truant; advice which was very helpful.
The view from the room was so picture perfect, that we enjoyed a few mornings just lazing in bed watching the calm and blue waters. After the hectic wedding celebrations, lying down and relaxing with the serene view in front of us was just the ride remedy to recover from all the wedding madness! hahaha.....
We booked a boat trip to the beautiful Ile aux Cerfs island/s and were warmly greeted and taken there and back by Jean. The hotel provides this service free. Make sure you book a day earlier. Since I had my snorkelling gear with me, I jumped off the pier and snokelled around the area. I have had better experiences snorkelling elsewhere in the world as I was able to spot a variety of fish and life underwater compared to area I snorkelled at in Mauritius. We were a bit disappointed that the resort did not let out their snorkelling gear for swimming near the hotel citing safety concerns (wrt to speedboats in the vicinty). The hotel lets out well maintained cycles to explore areas near Trou d'Eau Douce. We had an enjoyable ride up the coast to Belle Mare and back. We cycled on the beach and the area with pine trees hugging the shore. The beauty of the area is absolutely breath-taking.
Most of our evenings were spent at the restaurant where they served different cuisines buffet/À la carte. We were pleasantly surprised when we were offered a honeymoon special dinner on account of the hotel. Sunil and Arvin who interacted with us regularly at the restaurant were friendly and very efficient. Look out for the lightning fast Yuvraj who conducts a very swift service with a smile for guests seated at the area of the restaurant facing the sea. Breakfast served here is a standard menu offering a full English breakfast every morning.
Every evening the resort arranged for musicians to serenade the guests. We particularly enjoyed the guitarist violinist duo who did fantastic renditions of known retro hits and folks songs. Also on most evenings a table near the pool/snooker area was arranged where local handicrafts were sold. Another interesting show was the local dance performed at pool side with percussionists showing off their skills.
All in all we had a very memorable and relaxing holiday at the Tropical Attitude and we would recommend this place to anyone who would like their honeymoon here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tropical Attitude with its gentle way of life is a 3 star sup "Adult Only" hotel, recently renovated and smartened up, built in the middle of a garden planted with coconut trees and right on the lagoon. The hotel faces Trou d'Eau Douce, a genuine fishermen's village and its lagoon, situated on the east coast, and offers direct and free access to paradisiacal Ile aux Cerfs Island. The genuineness of the hotel relies on its Creole architecture and its contemporary tropical decoration. The new luminous colours of the 60 rooms contribute to their relaxed atmosphere. This friendly and comfortable hotel is a witness of the traditional way of life of the island, an ideal place to relax either as a family or as a couple. Time here seems to have come to a standstill, only interrupted by outings in the lagoon and siestas under the coconut trees. The simplicity and kindness of its Family Members* contribute widely to that dolce vita experience... ... more less
