Attitude Hotels Pledge

We support the local economy

We have always placed Mauritius and Mauritians at the heart of everything we do. In 2019, we became the first service company in Mauritius to be awarded the ‘Made in Moris’ accolade.

Prioritise ‘local’

At Attitude we mainly source from Mauritian producers, whenever possible, as we know that this directly benefits the local economy. One example is the Mayaven family, a farming couple who provides our Zilwa Attitude and The Ravenala Attitude hotels with hydroponic vegetables using sustainable agricultural methods. This collaboration illustrates our wish to support entrepreneurship and to put the principles of circular economy into practice. Over time, their business has grown, creating new jobs and new sustainable practices such as agroforestryper.

Support Mauritian young companies

In 2019, we created our own investment company : Otentik Investments Ltd, to strengthen our contribution to local economy. Our company helps promising Mauritian companies to thrive if they align with Attitude’s criteria, which encompass eco-responsibility and the creation of jobs on the long term. After a period of financial and logistical support, which allows the company to develop, Otentik Investments Ltd recoups its initial investment and finances two or three new local entrepreneurs a year. One of the first fledgling companies to benefit is Kokodezil, a local and 100% natural cosmetics brand.

Promote craftmanship

We use the work of local artists to decorate our hotels. When it comes to furniture – and despite competitive prices from China and Bali – we choose to use Mauritian carpentry. At Lagoon Attitude, 75% of our furniture is made in Mauritius. Attitude has also created Otentik Bazar, a pop-up market at our hotels giving local designers the chance to sell their products. Handicrafts include baskets, jams, jewellery and handbags made from recycled sails. Attitude takes no commission from the sale of any goods – 95% of the profit is paid directly to the maker and 5% goes to financing environmental actions via the Green Attitude Foundation.

We care about the local community We protect the environment
