Friday Attitude 

Where the living is easy

This is a charming and serene property – perfect if you are seeking a great-value beach holiday.

Sometimes a beach holiday should be stripped back to cater for life’s simple pleasures. What we love about this 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 pretension and no pressure to do any more than you please. This is a small and comfortable hotel with a small spa providing soothing massages or treatments, 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.

Why we love Friday Attitude

  • On an unspoiled powder-soft beach overlooking a lagoon on the island’s east coast 

  • Great for families, but also appealing to couples looking for some quiet time in laidback surroundings 

  • There’s an authentic Mauritian flavour to everything from the snacks from the street-food cart to the music in the bar

  • The all-inclusive package makes this one of our best value choices in Mauritius

With two restaurants and a food cart, there are enough options to keep you happy.

90° East
Most of your included meals are served at the main restaurant – the open-air buffet venue 90° East. The breakfast has a good selection of local and international dishes, while there are themed nights meaning you should never get bored with the culinary offerings.

Kot Nou
The resort’s signature restaurant Kot Nou is open for dinner four days a week and gives you a real taste of the island. Pre-booking is required.

Taba-J
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 return later for a selection of sweet treats.

Le Patio
In the evening, the cosy bar has sofas in the courtyard where you can unwind with a glass of Mauritian-made lychee wine and the island’s sega music playing in the background.

WE Beach Lounge
Open from 11am to 11.30pm, this rustic lounge is the perfect shady spot to sit with a coffee or cold drink and your toes in the sand.

Teabaz
At this self-service tea bar, guests can help themselves to a fragrant, fruity infusion and a pastry any time from 10.30am to 6pm.

You won’t want to miss the authentic Mauritian flavours at Taba-J, which serves up delicious street food staples such as pepper cakes and rotis.

What's included

Half Board • Breakfast and dinner at 90° East. Guests can also have dinner at Kot Nou.

Upgrade options

All Inclusive • Breakfast, lunch and dinner at 90° East • Lunch and tea at Taba J • Dinner at Kot Nou (open four days a week) • Selected local drinks • Selection of drinks and snacks at the Bulk Shop in Laboutik to stock your minibar (8am to 8pm) • Tea, coffee and sweet treats (4pm-6pm) • Picnic baskets for day excursions • Breakfast, lunch and dinner at a selection of restaurants at one of the other Attitude Hotels (upon availability; transfer not included) • 20% discount on one ‘Mauritian massage’ (9am-2pm; minimum stay 5 nights).

At the small Spa POZ, the focus is on the natural world. Here you can enjoy a pampering ‘ritual from our roots’, as the massage menu puts it, that reflects the island’s multicultural influences. Sustainability is also key, with the all-natural products coming from a local family-run company whose commitment to the environment is exemplary.

There’s no gym at Friday Attitude, but you can get your heart pumping with an energetic game of beach volleyball or table tennis, or try something gentler such as darts or pėtanque.

There is a PADI dive centre nearby where novices and more experienced divers can arrange courses and excursions at their own expense.

Complimentary snorkelling equipment is available, plus shuttles to Ile aux Cerfs and trips by glass-bottom boat.

Kitesurfing can be arranged for an extra cost, as can day trips on the resort’s own catamaran.

Attitude has a zero single-use plastic policy, so you’ll be given a reusable flask for drinking water and there are glass jars for coffee, sugar, shampoo and so on in the room that you can refill in the Bulk Shop. The products in the spa are handmade locally using natural ingredients and come in fully recyclable packaging. In the restaurants, ingredients are locally grown and sourced, which means fewer food miles and more money for the farmers. One of Attitude’s many marine-friendly policies is providing free mineral sunscreen to all of its guests.

Minimum stay: 7 nights 22 Dec-06 Jan.

Compulsory Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve gala dinners, supplements apply.
