Recif Attitude 

Tranquillity, pure and simple

This contemporary resort provides welcoming service and is the perfect spot for beachfront relaxation.

The scattering of white-washed buildings brings to mind a rustic Mediterranean retreat; however, the friendly service, white beach and stunning ocean views at this adults-only retreat are all undeniably Mauritian. Relax on the small coral and sand beach which is lined by rocks and enjoy free watersports including kayaking and snorkelling in the lagoon.

Why we love Recif Attitude

  • It’s in a quiet corner of the lively north-west coast overlooking a protected marine reserve, and the sunsets are glorious 

  • You could start the day with breakfast by the beach and end it with your toes in the sand eating seafood cooked Mauritian-style

  • This adult-only boutique hideaway is perfect for couples and groups of friends looking for a mix of fun and relaxation

  • The island’s busy capital, Port Louis, and the nightlife of Grand Baie are both just a short drive away

There are three restaurants for dinner, plus a street-food truck for lunch and tea, a bar and a self-service tea bar to keep things interesting.

La Pointe aux Piments
The main restaurant overlooks the sea and offers a buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring local and international cuisines.

L’Océan
This à la carte restaurant is open for candlelit dinners on the sand and a menu of seafood dishes with a Mauritian flavour.

Kot Nou
Kot Nou, which is open for dinner three nights a week, specialises in updated traditionally Mauritian dishes served tapas-style. Pre-booking is required.

Taba-J
Attitude’s signature street-food truck is the place to come for authentic local lunches and snacks, followed by sweet treats later in the afternoon.

La Sirène
The deck of the open-fronted bar is the perfect place to enjoy the stunning sunset with an icy rum cocktail in hand.

Teabaz
Settle down with a glass (upcycled, of course) of scented tea or a fruity infusion at the charming tea bar.

Indulge yourself by booking a table for beachside restaurant L’Océan’s once-a-week lobster nights.
