I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about Mauritius and I’ll be giving you loads of details in a full blog post, but also thought I’d answer some here real quick 👇🏻
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Q: When’s the best time to visit?
A: The weather mild for most of the year (25-28 °C) and very hot from Nov - April (30 °C+) •
Q: Is it kid friendly?
A: It’s the ultimate family holiday! @attitude_hotels have kids clubs and lots of fun activities for kids. Ravenala Attitude and Zilwa Attitude are both perfect for families •
Q: What’s there to do outside of the resort?
A: Lots! Street food and street art in Port Louis, a day on a catamaran, island hopping on a speed boat, exploring villages by bicycle, placing your bets at the horse racing, dinner in a local’s home - there are all activities @attitude_hotels hotels offer to guests. They focus strongly on highlighting authentic Mauritius with their #otentikattitude program •
Q: Is it affordable?
A: For a tropical island holiday where your every need is taken care of and all your meals and drinks are included? Um, yes! You can’t beat all-inclusive. (If I think about what I spent on a single cocktail in Bali 😣) Knowing that you’re all paid up before you go and won’t have to open your wallet again is the best! •
There you go! More on my blog soon 🤓

Absolutely loved spending the day in the sunshine with these talented, smart, funny, adventurous, gorgeous babes. If you aren’t following them yet, go ahead and get your daily dose of travel inspo, fashion inspo and general life inspo 🧜‍♀️ @iamkristabel @calliethorpe @sweetmondayblog •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
This is also a quick reminder that the internet should not be a place that makes you feel bad about yourself - in fact, it should be a place that reminds you that are you are perfect, you are valid and you are not alone 👭👭If you feel sick while scrolling, it’s time to change up your feed and follow the people who make you feel happy, included and represented! I know it can feel like the feed is flooded with girls who all have the exact same model thin bodies, big boobs and perfect skin, but look around you - in reality bodies are all completely different! So get your bod out babe, and don’t let made up beauty ideals hold you back from the sun!⚡️⚡️⚡️

I’ve had lots of questions about the weather in Mauritius - especially during the winter months. I’ve been in May, July and September, (autumn, winter and spring) and the weather was always peachy. The main thing to bear in mind about winter travels to the island is the WIND 💨 It blows incessantly in the east during the winter months, so its best to book your stay on the west. We stayed at #theravenalaattitude last July and again this time and spent all day enjoying the pool and the beach, not a breath of wind in the air. Also, don’t let the weather app freak you out before your trip - in fact, don’t look at it at all! It could be predicting rain for the entirety of your stay but in reality it’s sunshine all day🌴☀️#attitudehotels #mauritius #hosted 📸 @sweetmondayblog

Table for 2 please 🍽

This is Gran Zil, a teeny tiny island just off the Zilwa Arritude hotel where we had a bbq lunch and chilled out for the afternoon. There are beachfront loungers and hammocks in the water and it’s just pretty all what island dreams are made of 😍#attitudehotels #zilwaattitude #granzil #mauritius #hosted

What a way to spend a Sunday! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
We had a day of snorkeling, swimming, sunshine and a bbq on board the @attitude_hotels catamarans. This experience is something that guests can book through the hotel and it’s an incredible way to enjoy the island

Off to the races with this honey 🐎 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Champ de Mars race course in Mauritius is the second oldest race course in the world and has been around since 1812! We got a little dressed up and spent Saturday betting on our favourites and watching the locals cheer on theirs. Horse racing is huge here! I don’t know anything about horse racing even though my grandpa was a famous jockey in Mauritius in the 60’s! It was so amazing to hear that the racing community remembers him 💕 Really a fun experience that’s offered as an excursion by @attitude_hotels #champdemars #attitudehotels #mauritius #hosted

Extremely Tropical 🌴

Spent yesterday exploring the markets and streets of Port Louis followed by a long walk through the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden with @attitude_hotels. The climate in Mauritius is perfect 👌🏻 even in winter 🌴 #attitudehotels #mauritius 📸 @jennysmatblogg

I seriously loved our stay at the @radissonredcpt. From the gin blending experience to the big rooms, fast WiFi, rooftop pool and stunning views 👌🏻#capetown #lovecapetown #radissonred #radissonredcpt #southafrica #hosted

If you were washed up on a deserted tropical island, and you only had one single food item, delivered fresh in unlimited amounts, for the rest of your life - what would it be? You’ll have access to all the stuff that would normally be on a tropical island like coconuts, mangoes, fish if you can catch them - so this would be something from home 🌴 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
This picture was taken in Mauritius last July and I can’t wait to go back later this month with @attitude_hotels! #mauritius #attitudehotels
