All in all a bit of a disappointment for the price. The room location was great but a couple of issues 1. Packing space is severely limited. I had to live out of my suitcase 2. We asked for extra hangers three times before we got it. 3. We asked for thinner cushions which never arrived 4. We had to...

We stayed for our two week honeymoon, choosing the premium Executive Beachfront Suite package to make it extra special. This was a Great decision, giving us access to private beach area (Adults Only), beanbag sun lounger drinks service & access to Lime restaurant at lunchtime as part of the premium AI package. Our room also had balcony sunset views :-)...

We experienced the Ravenala Attitude as a very guest-friendly hotel where we have spent seven nights with the all-inclusive package. After a long journey when we finally arrived to the hotel, we were welcomed very warmly and everything important about hotel was explained by the staff. Our room was huge, clean and equipped with all we needed. What we especially...

Just back from a brilliant two weeks at Ravenala. From the minute we arrived (best check in experience at a hotel ever) to the minute we left (staff waving us off with smiles) every day here was filled with joy. There is so much do to – watersports are free; you have not only all-inclusive kayaking, stand up paddleboards, sailboats,...

Stayed here and loved the modern, contemporary feel. Stayed in the executive beach front room which is adults only. Relaxed in the hammock, spacious and soft beds. Bathroom was nice, shower and toilet in cubicles. BBQ lunch was very nice, service was on point as had drinks brought to me from the bar when they noticed I was running low....

Superb hotel, beautiful beach, great food and amazing cocktails! It is definitely a family resort, so if you are travelling kid-free then the adults-only rooms are certainly worth it - separate beach area with big bean-bag loungers. Of the various restaurants the Kot Nou and Lime are the pick - maybe give the beach BBQ a miss, and if you...

This is a brilliant family hotel, we were a party of 11 people ranging from 2 to 70 so wanted something that would cater for everyone, this hotel ticked all our boxes. The staff are friendly and the service overall was great. The hotel itself is contemporary, relaxed and smart. There are a variety of pools, one of which is...

The Hotel is exotic. The rooms which you provided were couple suites rooms. This room was worse than a standard room. The rooms had insects all around. The washroom was behind the Bed. The bath tub in the washroom had an opening towards the room without a glass. So bath tub cannot be used as water would get poured out...

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
