Conference Venue

The Ravenala Attitude Hotel,
Balaclava, Mauritius

Secluded on north-west coast of Mauritius, in the small village of Balaclava, the Ravenala Attitude hotel is an ode to the art of tropical living. The name, 'Ravenala', is the first taste of tropical exploration, as it refers to the traveller's tree (or traveller's palm) - easily spotted thanks to its fabulous, fan-shaped collection of long leaves.

Special discounted prices for conference delegates residing at the Ravenala Attitude Hotel, the booking reference is: UDM Conference | 2022
