#2 of 7 hotels in Balaclava
Travellers' Choice
The Ravenala Attitude is the first 4* All Suite hotel in Mauritius. Situated along the north-west coast of the island, 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 hotel is a mix of colonial heritage, contemporary design with tropical accents and genuine Mauritian art de vivre. No boundaries, inside and outside flow harmoniously into each other. Here, indoors and outdoors merge blithely to everyone’s delight. The 272 suites, Couples, Adults and Families are true reminders of the islands’ way of life: strokes of blue-grey, toile de Jouy fabric, woven rattan bedhead and on the wall, photos of typical scenes of Mauritian life. In the adult-only wing, all the suites overlook the Indian Ocean and face the sunset show every evening.

My wife and I spent our last honeymoon night dinner at A Tavola! and felt beyond satisfied. Not only was the food beautifully presented, but we could taste the high quality and fresh ingredients used. We made use of our half board package and ordered 4 starters, 4 mains and 3 desserts to be able to taste the different dishes! The waiters were very attentive despite the restaurant getting quite full, we were always checked to see if we had enough to drink and if the food was okay, which in every dish, was perfect! Thank you to Bruno our main server and Shabeer for your attentiveness and warm nature. You really made our last night at Ravenala a special one! Thank you also to the amazing chefs, Chef Mariano, Chef Rajesh and Chef Vikram. Chef Mariano, I appreciate you coming out to speak with us, was really happy to be able to thank you and the team's phenomal work! Thank you to the whole A Tavola! team!

The room and service was impeccable. The view of the river and the beach in the morning is to die for. Food was great, Greek buffet on the first day at dinner and a variety of meats and vegetables for everyone's tastes. The conference package comes with 2 coffee breaks, stationery, water bottles and functioning equipment to smoothen the running of working sessions. Lunch provided during the conference was 4-star quality, though a minor comment would be to decrease the protein proportion on the plate. Other than that, the staff made everything possible to make this stay a memorable one. Thank you Ravenala Attitude!

Our first night on this beautiful holiday we decided to book and eat at Lime restaurant for dinner. Very friendly, attentive and professional staff, Nitin, Nitish and Atish are a credit to the Ravanala- nothing was too much for them. The food itself was delicious, and we couldn’t fault a single dish. Top quality produce, cooked and served to perfection in a beautiful location. Thank you for a beautiful evening, we will certainly return before we have to head back to the Uk.
