Rooms + Good size with a separate living area and generous sized balcony. - The clean was really superficial and the bathroom stank, there was a dead lizard which didn't get taken away until we brought it to their attention, the shower was covered in mound I don't believe this is a new hotel, even sweeping the floor a basic...

Fabulous resort, with attentive and polite staff, good choice of restaurants and activities. All staff were most attentive and we genuinely felt they were enjoying our stay as much as we were. Good food with plenty of choice. No problem with restaurant bookings despite the hotel being busy as long as you kept to the 2; hours in advance rule....

What can I say that's not already been said!? Not much probably but here is my penny's worth. Key thing with this resort is not to let the odd thing that lets it down wind you up, I was going to give it 3/5 because of some very frustrating service issues but on reflection the resort deserves a 4. I...

Categorised under 4 star...

The service from arrival to departure was everything we could have hoped for. Check in we were welcomed warmly and then shown to our beach front room which...

We travelled with our 3 children age 9,8,5 in October half term. Hotel was very busy and while all reviews re finding sun beds etc very true this really didn't bother us. The all inclusive option was great value and food was excellent, particularly in the buffet. We had a few niggles and referred them to management who were very...

I was on my honeymoon and stayed in this hotel for 7 days. It was an enjoyable stay. The rooms are very comfortable. Food is quiet good in almost all its restaurants. For honeymooners they provided special candle light dinner which was well arranged. Only problem we faced was to check out from room at 12 noon because our flight...

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
