A great-value all-inclusive beach holiday.
Sometimes a beach holiday should be stripped back to cater for life’s simple pleasures. What we love about the great-value beach retreat is that you can just read a book under the shade of a palm tree, sip on a refreshing cocktail with the sand between your toes or lounge on a bean bag by the pool in the company of family or friends. There’s no pretention and no pressure to do any more than you please. This is a small and comfortable hotel with a small spa providing soothing massage or treatment, and a small kids’ corner – Ayo le Dodo – where your children can make new friends. You don’t need too many distractions when you have a white-sand beach and turquoise lagoon as pretty as those at the Friday Attitude. For a change of scenery – if you require one that is – you can take a boat over to one of Mauritius’ most spectacular attractions, the Ile Aux Cerfs, which is just half an hour away.
The hotel’s all-inclusive package makes this one of our best value choices in Mauritius. The majority of your included meals are served at the main restaurant – the open-air buffet venue 90° East. At breakfast , there are a good selection of dishes, while at dinner there are themed buffets meaning you should never get bored with the culinary offerings. An alternative option for lunch is the food cart Taba-J, a staple of all the island’s Attitude properties. Here, you can enjoy typical Mauritian street food and, later return for a selection of sweet treats. One of our favourite spots at the hotel is the rustic WE Beach Bar with its sand floor and thatched roof.
With just 50 rooms it will never feel too crowded here and they are modest and simple in style. The Standard Rooms, which feature a double bed and terrace or balcony, are perfect for couples. As the name would suggest, the larger Family Rooms are an excellent choice if you are travelling with children as they feature a main room with double bed and separate kids’ area with two single beds.
