This hotel lives up to its trip advisor rating. Located in a lovely bay where the river Citron flows into the sea. The suites located by the river over look this tranquil setting. The hotel is set in extensive grounds which allow you time and space to enjoy the facilities. The large swimming pools provide enjoyment for young ( separate...

Everything we've hoped for - good service, a great mixture of chilled relax time and active leisure - mastered all the possible watersports (helps that they are included in the package!). Special thanks go to the staff - all of them were attentive, polite and non-imposing. Ritesh, the bartender at the beach bar, is the maestro in colorful tropical cocktails,...

There are so many positives about this hotel that I feel churlish mentioning the negatives. That said, this is how hotels improve so I will start with them. 1. It states it is an 'all suite' hotel, which it is not - they may have sizable rooms but these are not suites. They 'do' have suites - we managed to...

From start to finish this holiday was superb! My partner and I visited for 10 days in June 2016. We had a riverside room which we actually preferred as it was very quiet and nice to have different scenery! The room was spacious and cleaned immaculately each day! The different choice of food/restaurants was great as well as the BBQ...

Try to take rooms near to reception as there are more than 200 rooms here and they are very far from activity and dining area. Also had bad experience with management for as they have very slow service and...

I had a wonderful stay at Ravenala, in my luxurious suite right by the sea, with all imaginable additional facilities. I really enjoyed watching (right from my patio) local fishermen throwing out their fishing nets at sunset and the happy islanders swimming by the pier. There are all kinds of colourful, exotic birds and plants all over the hotel area...

Spent the weekend at Ravenala. Good deal. The hotel scores points for the wide variety of food and the activities proposed. The room was spacious. The swimming pools are kept clean and are nice for an early morning/ late afternoon dip. The sega show was amazing. However, clients receive different treatments. Priority is blatantly given to tourists! Tourists are given...

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
