About the Hotel

Facing sunrise, nestled along the East coast, Trou d’Eau Douce is a fishermen’s village and seaside resort with its still typically “Mauritius as it was” atmosphere. 

Reopened on September the 4th, 2017, the adult only 3-star sup boutique-hotel has been totally refurbished. Stepping in the newly transformed open spaces and bar-lounge area as well as the Creole architecture, immediately convey the atmosphere of a relaxed and peaceful holiday home by the beach.


The decoration throughout the hotel, including that of the 58 seaview rooms, is uncluttered and refined. The look is trendy: white, mineral, natural colours and shades of dawn, all reminders of these beautiful sunrises along the East coast. Perfect ingredients for a beautiful holiday! 

Time here seems to have come to a standstill, only interrupted by outings in the lagoon, a petanque or snooker game and siestas under the coconut trees… Indulge in the local Otentik Attitude experiences like the cooking lesson around a very Mauritian recipe or the Otentik Discovery geolocation app to discover a few unknown and genuine addresses off the beaten tracks. From the hotel jetty, direct and free access to paradisiacal Ile aux Cerfs… unavoidable!



All of Tropical Attitude’s 58 Seaview rooms have been entirely renovated.They are welcoming and inviting with promises of relaxing moments. Room facilities are numerous: TV, mini-bar, safe, telephone, hair dryer and all the necessary equipment for an agreeable stay; tea and coffee freely available. Inside or outside your room, early bird, you have the best seat to watch the sun rising above the horizon… On the East Coast the rising moon over the silvery lagoon is also as spectacular!


Couple Deluxe Seafront Rooms
These 30m2 rooms, all situated on the ground floor, are beautifully decorated; double beds or twin beds under their mosquito nets, natural or painted rattan stools. In the bathroom, the almost round mirror with its rattan rays is in itself almost a rising sun.

The seashells curtains with their soft tingle remind us of the proximity of the sea! In the lounge area, TV set and mini bar together with the rattan sofa are an invitation to a good book. You can also choose to laze under the pergola filling your lungs with fresh sea air. The Plus: the coffee machine. 

The Couple Seafront rooms have a breathtaking view of Trou d’Eau Douce lagoon and Île aux Cerfs Island. In total harmony with the surrounding nature, the new rooms are uncluttered and refined with a trendy look of white and mineral colours with shades of dawn, reminders of the beautiful sunrises of the east coast.


Couple Seafront Rooms
Each of these 25m2 rooms open up on a furnished terrace or a balcony. Rattan sofa, small wrought iron and tin-tops drink tables. The elements although the same in all rooms are not identical. Sometimes the rattan is natural sometimes painted, the basketry bench top to accommodate the craftsman’s inspiration, is black and yellow, beige and yellow or any other match… 

The rooms are air-conditioned with a TV, a mini-bar, a safe, a telephone as well as all the necessary equipment for an agreeable stay, tea and coffee freely available. Sitting on the sofa enjoy the magic sunrise or the romantic moonrise!
