Great meals, great entertainment, sparkling seas and beautiful sandy beaches! What more can you ask for? Well, there is indeed a lot more to ask for than just sand, sea and sun! So why not join us in this article as we take you for an Otentik (pronounced: "oh-ten-tick")/authentic tour allowing you to experience the real Mauritius first-hand?


When visitors first set foot on the lovely Indian Ocean island of Mauritius, they usually climb into their transfer vehicle and head off to spend a week or so in and around their resort hotel.

Yes, we do have great hotels, yes we do share the sea, sand and sun with everyone else but ATTITUDE HOTELS offer you, as their guests, something rather unique. Their aim is to give you unforgettable moments and help you discover the true richness of Mauritius.

Whether you are looking for privacy, relaxation, activities or Otentik experiences, ATTITUDE is your obvious choice to discover the island and especially meet the locals. ATTITUDE offers a holiday of your dreams, whether you are a couple, family, travelling with friends or are on honeymoon or, about to become a married couple!

ATTITUDE HOTELS is a collection of ecologically-committed hotels. What this means, in reality, is that they do everything possible every day to have a positive impact on the local environment, community and the country's economy.

How do they do this? Well, for a start, you will find your hotel room walls decorated with stunning original art by local artists and the furniture is made by Mauritian craftspeople. The delicious food at mealtimes is grown by and sourced from local farmers (unless it cannot be produced on the island) and therefore transportation costs are reduced while local agriculture benefits.

The ever-present miniature plastic shampoo bottles and plastic sachets found in other hotels are totally absent from ATTITUDE. In its place, they provide you with a reusable glass jar and you simply take what you need from the hotel's bulk shop. The same applies to your drinking water.

When you arrive, you receive a Dopper water bottle that you can freely fill up with safe drinking water at the water fountains. In this way, they help reduce the plastic footprint on the island and are justifiably proud of their "Positive Impact" movement which embraces responsible actions as a holistic contribution to this island nation.

The ATTITUDE team has developed a rather amazing free app for your electronic device (e.g. smartphone). Called the "Otentik Discovery app" the application helps you to have the very best Mauritian experience by pointing you to those special places only the locals know about.

You can use the apps' maps to access the island's best beaches and whether on foot or chugging along on a hired scooter come across places and views not seen by the average tourist! Who would have thought that an app could open up the incredible beauty and culture of a faraway country to you? Their interactive Mauritius travel guide is just that and what the ATTITUDE experience is all about!

Their hotels showcase the best Mauritius souvenirs, and craftwork made by local artisans and entrepreneurs in Otentik Bazars. And like so many of ATTITUDE'S initiatives, 5% of every item you buy goes to the Green Attitude foundation which supports several sustainable development projects.

Who else but ATTITUDE offers you the opportunity to share an evening meal with a local family?

Some of the staff who work at ATTITUDE warmly welcome you into their homes and prepare Otentik Mauritian dishes for you! Here you get the opportunity to make new friends, learn about local traditions and generally have a great evening together. Mauritius is famously one of the most multi-cultural destinations in the world and its cuisine reflects it. The food, therefore, is a blend of Indian, Chinese, European and African flavours, tantalizing your palate while you enjoy the hospitality of your new 'family'. Many guests have said that this evening out was probably the highlight of their stay in Mauritius!

"Food, glorious food!" as the words from the musical "Oliver" rightfully sings out, the Otentik experiences and restaurants will help you excite your palate even more as you enjoy street food prepared by one of their master chefs – with you perhaps even lending a helping hand in its preparation!

While the cuisine reflects the mix of ethnicities, languages and traditions, the lifestyle of the people is likewise diverse, and this is very apparent in the country's rich musical variety. In their continuing commitment towards focussing on Mauritian culture, we love giving established and up-and-coming musical talent, from traditional music to the latest and hottest bands and performers, a stage on which to perform. Yet another highlight of your stay in with ATTITUDE is the weekly Sega show, if you feel inclined to do so, why not try your hand at playing a traditional Mauritian musical instrument?

ATTITUDE is proud to present the Spa POZ experience. Amongst others, they offer Aayurruvedic massage techniques from India and reflexology from China. With plant-based, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, handmade products composed mainly of local and regional ingredients are a special treat. These products, in recyclable packaging, of course, are ready to use in-hotel or to take home with you. Furthermore, they give 5% of sales to the Green Attitude Foundation charity.
