An island escape combining a chilled daytime vibe with a lively after-hours buzz and local flavour.

On holiday, there are times you want a buzzy scene, times you want to kick back and chill, and times you want to live like a local. This is where Lagoon Attitude comes in, an adults-only escape hugging the shores of a huge lagoon on the north coast of Mauritius. This revamped island hangout is designed around three zones: lively, laid-back and local, so you can find your perfect vibe.

The action can be found at the heart of the hotel: the boathouse, main pool and amphitheatre – gloriously atmospheric at sunset. Here, you can embark on a midday sea-bike race, master the art of mixology with a cocktail workshop at dusk or stay after hours at a late-night pool party. The pace shifts down a few gears at the northern tip of the hotel, where you’ll discover a tranquil hideout on the lagoon. In this peaceful corner, you can start the day with sunrise Pilates on the waterfront, take refreshing dips in the crystalline water and linger over sundowners at the chilled waterside bar-lounge. For a slice of Mauritian culture, live like a local by learning a new language in a Creole lesson or sampling tasty street food.

Whichever ambience you’re after, it’s all about the experience at Lagoon Attitude, whether that’s dining on Mauritian cuisine under the stars, indulging in a sea-inspired spa treatment or giving back to the natural environment. For a real treat, choose one of the Whirlpool Suites, which have a whirlpool bath on the balcony that overlooks the Indian Ocean.
