What's Hot

  • This is the first 4 star all-suite resort on the island and the rooms are both very stylish and contemporary as well as extremely spacious - at a minimum of 64 sqm these are probably the largest rooms on the island in this level resort
  • There's a huge amount of choice when it comes to dining with a total of 8 restaurants (including 2 catering only to adults) and 4 bars, so loads of variety to keep everyone happy
  • If you don't fancy being around noisy kids, then book one of the 40 suites in the dedicated adults-only wing for additional peace, privacy and tranquility
  • Families will also be happy with loads of facilities to keep the youngsters happily occupied, including both a kids and teens club
  • Whilst it's a very large resort, even when it's full the Ravenala doesn't ever feel too crowded with plenty of space for everyone

What's Not

  • This is a large resort whose sheer size can be a bit intimidating to some - so choose something more boutique-y if that's more your style
  • The resort's position in Turtle Bay means that the beach is more light golden brown than the blinding white coral sand beaches found on some other beaches on the island - the water can also lack that aquamarine blue colour as a result

The Ravenala Attitude (formerly La Plantation Hotel) is located on the north-west coast of Mauritius at Turtle Bay and is bordered by both ocean and river. Whether it's lounging on the beach, canoeing on the river, or reading a book by the pool with a cocktail in hand, the Ravenala Attitude always delivers moments to savour. Set throughout tropical gardens and fronted by a gold-sand beach, this is the perfect spot for relaxation. The turquoise lagoon is also incredibly inviting. If you’re looking for a more active break, you can have a go at paddle boarding, windsurfing and canoeing or splash out on diving, parasailing or waterskiing.

This resort - the first four-star all-suite property in Mauritius - is pretty large by any measure, consisting of 272 suites (40 of which are adult-only) which boast an elegant and contemporary blue-grey colour scheme, wickerwork – including the bedheads and blinds – and classic wooden furnishings.

Which suite you choose depends on whether you’re travelling as a couple, with your children or a group of friends. The adult-only wing offers privacy and intimacy, with exclusive restaurants, including Lime, a sushi bar open each afternoon. There are 102 Family Suites which offer enough space for up to two adults and three children while the 130 Couple Suites are great for a romantic break or a holiday with a friend. Then there are the 40 Executive Beachfront Adult Suites which are ideal if you’re looking for a little solitude as well as a dedicated beach bar area to relax during the day away from any kids.

What stands out is the size of the Suites, with even the Couple’s Suites boasting a very spacious 64 sqm! All of the suites here have fully furnished private terraces and balconies boasting impressive views across the resort and beyond. As well as the very attractive contemporary décor and styling, the suites boast all the modern amenities you would expect, plus a few extra surprises thrown in for good measure, including plasma screen televisions, mini-bar and personal safe.

One of the highlights of staying at the Attitude group resorts has to be the Otentik Attitude programme which allows you to really get a true insight into Mauritius – you can try things like local cuisine cookery classes, local music, heritage tours, visits to the local market and a weekly ‘Otentik Bazar’ with all profits from the ‘made in Mauritius’ goodies going to the craftspeople. You can even dine on ‘Otentik Dinners’ with locals in their homes!

Talking of food, there is a particular emphasis on cuisine here at the Ravenala Attitude with 10 dining outlets – from family-friendly to adults-only. The day begins with a buffet breakfast at the main restaurant while lunch can also be enjoyed at the waterfront restaurant Ō, Beach BBQ and Taba-j. It’s at dinner when the resort really comes into its own with eight restaurants to choose from, seven of which are included in the all-inclusive package. Two of the hotel’s restaurants (Riviera and Lime) are adults-only. There are also six bars for you to enjoy, including a beach lounge and After, a chic nightclub.

After a night of fun, the Spa Attitude is where guests are able to fully rejuvenate. There are myriad treatments on offer here as well as pampering amenities including two hydro therapy rooms, a Vichy shower and even a hammam. If however you prefer to get active, the hotel's Sport Village (which is home to a tennis court, gym and two accessible pools) is on hand. Children will love the Ravenala Attitude too with the kids' clubs providing hours of various fun activities for younger family members whilst the Sport Village and Boat House offer endless diversions for the adults -  from kayaking along Rivière Citron to riverbank yoga and waterskiing off the beach.
