Zilwa Attitude

Become an "islander" at this rustic retreat

Zilwa Attitude mixes contemporary luxury with a traditional Mauritian style, and invites you to enjoy a laid back holiday right by a gorgeous sandy beach. Zilwa means Islander in Creole, and the resort's décor and atmosphere reflects an attitude of making guests feel at home. There's a great buffet restaurant to enjoy as well as local dishes and Asian specialities in one of the à la carte restaurants. You can dine at the beach too, and there are bars for you to lounge in with refreshing island cocktails, digging your feet into the sand and really unwinding.

Get more into the spirit of things with activities and water sports including snorkelling, diving, and boat trips, or just head to one of the pools or spa for some peace. Your room will mix rustic chic interiors with well-appointed features such as en-suite bathrooms with showers, and balconies or terraces, and there are choices that are perfect for both families and couples.

Hospitality at its Best..!!

Bangalore, India

Me and my wife had our long pending late Honeymoon planned in Zilwa for about 1 week, specially in Diwali Vacation. We are based out of Gujarat, India. My wife is a strict pure vegetarian. We must tell you that we found the Resort perfectly situated, bit away from other Hotels, makes it perfect for Holidays. Resort's interiors are very well decorated, and blue coast line and the views of an opposite island adds value to this property. Property has Free Wi-Fi with range uptil beach, a GYM, a SPA, Kid's Play area, Tennis, Volleyball, Board games etc Property has 3 adult and 2-3 kid's swimming pools, 2 bars, and about 7 restaurants. Breakfast: Out of 7 Buffet Breakfast is served in only 1 restaurant : KARAY. KARAY serves continental Buffets for Breakfast & Dinner. This restaurant do not need prior booking, rest all the restaurants needs prior bookings. Lunch : You have 3 options : LOR DISAB (Buffet), GRAN ZIL (Barbecue), TABA-J (fast-food). Other than Fastfood, rest 2 needs prior bookings. Dinner : You have 5 options : KARAY(continetal Buffet), SIAW (Chinese), TADKA (Indian), LOR DISAB (Beach side), KOT NOU (Mauritian). All needs prior bookings. So Basically if you are Pure Vegetarian: For Breakfast, you have KARAY For Lunch, .. I would say you don't have much options as LOR DISAB most of the Buffet items are Non-Veg, GRAN ZIL is Barbecue so all Non-veg mostly, so you will end up eating sand-witches. So I would suggest for Pure Vegies, buy some fresh fruits, Breads, Butter/Jams, Juices, Nuts, Water Bottles, for Lunch Time. For Dinner.. I would suggest from very first day you book for SIAW (Chinese), TADKA (Indian) as those 2 only would have more Vegetarian options. We missed this and struggled from about 4 days, and last 3 days we got the reservations, that too after so many requests. Food is the main part of any holiday experience, and by doing early bookings you must make sure you secure that as soon as you check in. Once that is done, Zilwa is Heaven for Stay, Hospitality, Cleanliness, Room Service, Water Activities like Peddle Boat, Kayaking, Snorkeling, Surfing, Para Sailing. Kids have separate section where they can enjoy painting and playing sessions while you can go for your day activities. Daily Evening entertainment like folk dance or folk singing are well organized. Cookery and dance learning sessions, and lots of activities which you can go for. You will definitely need 10 days to explore this property as well as Mauritius in whole. Once you get bored in Hotel, you can go for outside activities like Scuba Diving, Sky Diving, Catamaran Cruise, Le morne Brabant Hiking. Ile Aux Cerf beach offer wide range of water sports, but you must choose correct vendor for this trip. Never ever go for any person selling these activities, as you may get cheated, activities best booked online. All the staff is very hard working and well behaved, they work 24X7 so that you get best hospitality services. Me and my wife were so impressed, and would definitely visit Zilwa in near future with kids this time. Its a perfect Holiday destination!

Overated

Melbourne, Australia

We had a beach front Villa which was a lovely loaction. We booked Zilwa based on the reviews and the number of resturaunts that were listed. We found the cleanliness of the plates etc in the breakfast buffet not up to standard. Also found you need to book the resturaunts as soon as you arrive or prior as the restraunts were booked out during our 5 night stay although we managed to get in 4 out of the 5 nights. It is a lovely location but we do like our food and the resturaunts apart from the Indian we found to be of poor quality. The service was a bit of a hit and miss depending on who you got. The staff seemed rushed and unhappy. Some were great others not which is not fair on the good ones. We just could not understand the high rating . Maybe its us?
