The Ravenala

The Ravenala provides the perfect balance between chilling out and getting active. During a stay here, lazy days and jam-packed evenings are both firmly on the agenda.

The hotel’s set out with colonial-style villas dappled around the grounds. There are plenty of relaxing touches around the grounds as well, including swing seats and hammocks. In the gardens, two pools sit side by side.

When it comes to mealtimes, there’s so much choice that you may struggle to pick somewhere. In total, there are 10 restaurants and five bars to help keep you fed and watered. After a few relaxing drinks, you can even dance the night away at the nightclub.

Overview of Balaclava

Famed for its white-sand beaches, top-class hotels like The Ravenala and luxurious lagoons, a holiday to Mauritius will capture your senses.

Mauritius is home to some of the most breathtaking beaches in the world. Balaclava, located in the north of the country, has the very best.

The resort has previously been described as ‘like heaven on earth’ and as soon as you arrive here, you’ll see why. If you love beaches and sunshine, Balaclava Bay is the place to be. After your visit here, nothing else will compare.

Things to do in Balaclava

The unique location of The Ravenala places the best views of Balaclava on the doorstep.

The hotel’s also next to a river where you can try your hand at kayaking. If you’d rather be on the beach, you can go windsurfing or head out on a glass-bottomed boat trip.

Lining the back of Balaclava Bay, you’ll also find a range of beachside bars. These are great places to grab a cocktail to take to your lounger as you soak up the sun and dry off from your dip in the sea.

If you fancy exploring the rest of Mauritius, then the lively Port Louis is only 15km away. If you’d rather visit Grand Baie, you’ll reach it in 20 minutes if you take a taxi.

Balaclava looks like it has been plucked straight from a movie set, and you’ll leave here feeling like a real star.
