Those who have teenagers surely know how difficult it is to get them in when going on family trip. They are always complaining that there is not enough activities even though they will be glued to their mobile most of the time. But that weekend at Ravenala was really GREAT & MEMORABLE for the four of us. My husband and...

Lets start by saying I am a 'Hotel Snob' and have been spoilt with where I have stayed previously - so bear this in mind when reading my review and hopefully it will add some perspective. Overall the hotel is good and bad in equal measure. To save you reading my lengthy review, I can simply summarise the hotel as...

Nice rooms, Spread out space. Belldesk takes forever to get your luggage so plan to give them a good amount of advance notice. Check in also takes forever so don't be in a rush... but then again - it's Mauritius - What would you be rushing for!? :) Very Good Breakfast spread although the staff at breakfast seemed stretched and...

I fear our review will stand out like a sore thumb in comparison to the glowing feedback of so many others, but unfortunately, we left our 2-week break feeling somewhat disappointed. I would like to start this review by stressing that, whilst there were lots of good points which I'll get on to, we felt a little cheated by the...

We visited for our honeymoon in Mauritius. Stayed at Ravenala Attitude. Amazing hotel, great staff, loved Mauritian food. Only minus point is you have to buy water in Mauritius. It's not free in malls or 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
