Sunrise Attitude 

Eco-haven for adults only

Serene and stylish while holding sustainability and the environment at its core, this contemporary resort is just across the road from one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius.

Decked out with chic rattan and raw wood furnishings that pop against the flawless white-washed walls, this impeccably refurbished adults-only resort is a breath of fresh air to the scene in Belle Mare. Set across the road from the immaculate coast and backed by farmland growing local produce, a contemplative ambience whispers through the resort adding an unexpected dimension of value to your retreat. Everything here has been thoughtfully considered from the modern artworks created by local artists and furniture sourced from Mauritian carpenters to the zero single-use plastic policy and exclusive Otentik experiences on offer. With a focus on leaving a positive impact, sustainable tourism is at the heart of this hotel’s philosophy.

Why we love Sunrise Attitude

  • It’s in a wonderfully secluded east-coast location, with fields on one side and a turquoise lagoon on the other 

  • Some of the rooms are Swim Up, something of a rarity in Mauritius, and there are also villas with private pools

  • The contemporary design, with its local art and upcycled features, shows that sustainability can be luxurious too

  • There are no televisions in the rooms, so you can really forget about the outside world and just enjoy the moment

The hotel’s restaurants are stylish and serve locally sourced produce. A handful of staff offer dining experiences in their family homes, so you can delve deeper into Mauritian culture with insight into traditional island life.

The Market
The resort’s main restaurant feels like a contemporary beach house with beams of untreated wood reaching up to the neatly thatched roof. The stylish buffet of freshly made Indian, Mauritian and Italian cuisine is available from breakfast through to dinner, and there are excellent vegan options.

The Social House
Near the pool, this come-as-you-are venue serves healthy dishes à la carte at lunch before turning into a tapas restaurant and lounge bar with a DJ  in the evening.

Kot Nou
The imaginative and sophisticated tapas-style dishes at Attitude’s signature Kot Nou restaurant are full of Mauritian flavours. Pre-booking is required.

Taba-J
A local institution, Attitude’s signature street-food cart has a tempting menu of authentic local snacks at lunchtime and equally authentic sweet offerings later in the afternoon.

Papaya
The main pool bar is open all day for drinks and light bites such as burgers, wraps and poke bowls – and you can even order without getting out of the water or off the bar swing.

31
With a lively atmosphere, and views of the lagoon from the terrace, this intimate bar is an appealing place to hang out and try some of the local drinks, from ice-cold beers to rum-based cocktails.

Teabaz
Quench your thirst at the resort’s tea bar, where you can sample a selection of local teas and infusions served in upcycled glasses every day from 10.30am to 6pm.

The food at Sunrise Attitude has a true local flavour, with five venues providing a beautifully thought-out array of healthy and delicious dishes, from island-style tapas to seafood curries.

What's included

All Inclusive • Breakfast at the main restaurant • Lunch at The Social House, The Market, TabaJ or Papaya Bar • Dinner at three restaurants • Selected drinks • Afternoon tea self-serve pastries at TabaJ from 4pm to 5pm • Picnic baskets for day excursions • Selection of drinks and snacks at the Bulk Shop in Laboutik to stock your minibar (8am to 8pm) • Local snacks served with evening drinks • Optional Breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of the other Attitude hotels • 20% discount off the first massage (bookings between 9am and 2pm for every minimum stay of five nights).

Carved into natural volcanic rock, the two serene treatment rooms at Spa Poz add another level of indulgence to your stay at Sunrise Attitude. In keeping with its eco-friendly philosophy, treatments* are based on the natural elements of Mauritius and use 100% natural products. As well as the usual facial and body therapies, the soothing spa is also home to four indulgent signature treatments* – our favourite is the Earth Attitude hot stone massage with essential oils.

Practise tai chi, qi gong or yoga with a master*.

The small gym is open every day from 7am to 8pm, and has a treadmill, an elliptical bike and free weights.

There’s more of an emphasis on getting fit and having fun in the fresh air, though, with guided energy walks on the beach, a weekly bootcamp, walks in the fields, and volleyball and football on the sand all on offer. For an extra payment, you can also play golf, go horse riding and head out on a bike ride.

There is a PADI Diving Centre not far away which offers trips* for experienced divers and courses* for beginners.

Swim and snorkel in the lagoon, hit the pool for a lively game of water polo or an aquagym class, or treat yourself to a kitesurfing session* – the conditions here are ideal. If that all sounds too strenuous, you could simply enjoy the ocean from the comfort of a glass-bottom boat* or sleek catamaran*.

There’s a zero-single-use-plastic policy, with refillable glass jars for everything from coffee to shampoo in every room. When you buy the all-natural products at the spa, 5% goes to the Green Attitude Foundation, which helps fund sustainable projects. Guests are provided with Mauritian-made mineral suncream, which reduces the risk of damage to the reefs and marine life. Otentik Bazar, the resort’s boutique, features the work of talented local artisans and small companies, helping to support the island economy.

Guests over 18 years are welcome at this hotel.

No wet clothes and swimsuits to be worn in the restaurants; after 6.

30pm, no shorts, tank tops, vest tops or flip flops can be worn in the restaurant.

The beach is located across the road from the hotel.
