Discover the real Mauritius

Have you ever visited the land of the dodo bird, of shooting stars, of rainbows, of flamboyant red trees and green filaos? Maybe it’s time to pack your suitcase and fly to multi-coloured, multi-cultured and smiling Mauritius.

Attitude invites families to experience genuine Mauritian charm in each of its eight contemporary-style hotels. Its dedicated team, the Family Members, delight in unveiling some of Mauritius’ secrets to you. Don’t just go to Mauritius: live Mauritius with Attitude hotels through our Otentik Attitude experiences, a genuine insight into true authentic Mauritius. Use Attitude's new self-guided tours mobile app to explore the island off the beaten track; enjoy a genuine home cooked dinner in a local home; taste Mauritian culinary specialities while learning some creole; savour a delicious cocktail to the beat of local music.

Take a peek inside two of Attitude hotels' flagship 4* properties...



Along the north-west coast of the island, nicely tucked away between sea and river in the middle of a luxuriant and exotic garden, The Ravenala Attitude is the first 4* All Suite hotel in Mauritius. The Ravenala Attitude is a mix of colonial heritage, contemporary design with tropical accents and genuine Mauritian art de vivre. Refined and uncluttered, the 272 suites are true reminders of the islands’ way of life.

The hotel offers a “Dine Around” experience in eight of the 10 restaurants. Each restaurant has its own identity found both in the décor and on the plate. Guests can enjoy a wide range of 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 or the spacious Spa Attitude.

Holidays at The Ravenala Attitude have a taste of far-away lands and the promise of a voyage within the voyage.

The contemporary rustic chic architecture takes inspiration from the traditional seaside bungalows. The 214 rooms have been designed to match the expectations of each guest.

True to the hotel concept, six special themed restaurants allow families to enjoy a blend of spicy and exquisite tastes reflecting the cultural diversity of the island.
