Went there a few months back with my family. Upgraded my room to an ocean view villa. And it was splendid! Rooms were clean and organised. And the view was breathtaking! The breakfast buffet had so many choices to spoil you :P A really memorable stay :)

Having just returned from the Ravenala , we wanted to give the hotel a good review despite some issues we experienced during our stay. We found the hotel so friendly, clean , with lovely rooms and it ticked a lot of the boxes. There were quite a few small children staying during our time which we didn't expect but as...

Visited Ravenala for just 7 nights and from start to finish the experience and customer service was the best we've ever received! The lobby and bar staff were exceptional, especially Menon and co. They couldn't do enough for us. My only gripe was the taxi service being far too overpriced but unless you're willing to wing it this is the...

As I start writing this review, I am still unsure of what score the Ravenela should receive. I wanted to like this hotel so much, but unfortunately it gets some of the basics wrong which had a detrimental impact on my 9 night stay. Initial impressions were good. The entrance is very nice with a rustic feel to it. Check...

This is a hotel with a lot of potential. Customer care from front of desk staff to Management, is exemplary. The coffee is very good, the waiters always took time to get us our daily latte and cappuccino at breakfast, even though the hotel was at full capacity. When there was an issue with the room on arrival, we were...

My husband and I just left the Ravenala attitude and had a great all around stay. The rooms were beach chic (although no moisturiser was provided - an essential for a beach holiday) and spacious. The staff was very accommodating and bartender Ray made fabulous cocktails and was really friendly and charming. Although the hotel was near full capacity it...

First time in Mauritius with father in law and relatives, all in all seven people. The Ravenala Attitude isn't brand new but is very well kept. We had a mid-range family room which was spacious, well maintained and had all features that we expect. The common areas, bars and lounges are uncrowded, clean and with a contemporary design feeling.

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
