« An atmosphere of madness during the day and comfortable rooms in the evening, what else for a memorable stay? » - Patrice, Islandian Expert
The Ravenala Attitude, is located along Turtle Bay, on the west coast at Balaclava, and is the only 4-star All Suite hotel on the island of Mauritius. Forming part of the Attitude chain of new-generation hotels, Ravenala integrates the local Mauritian lifestyle within its assortment of activities, notably through the Otentik Attitude experience that allows guests to immerse themselves in the vibrant local culture through rich encounters such as dining with a Mauritian family, learning to speak creole, taking Mauritian cuisine and Sega dancing classes, shopping for exclusive Made in Mauritius products, and more.
Combined with everything one usually finds in a resort, families and groups on vacation in Mauritius will be charmed by the multitude of possibilities that also include the mini club Ayo Le Dodo, for youngsters, as well as Teens Republic, a club for older kids, ensuring fun for everyone. Couples, too, can take advantage of the Adults Only section of the hotel or get away to the spa for the day.
Wood, thatch, rattan, and traditional Jouy fabrics are just some of the materials chosen for the interior décor that symbolises a Mauritian art of living that blends colonial architecture and heritage with vibrant tropical colours. A group of young, local artists came together to paint the Taba-J, a small snack-bar trailer. No less than ten restaurants and four bars are available, offering a wide variety of gastronomic appeal, from sushi and beach barbecues to grilled seafood served at the floating restaurant.
