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.

  • Experience an authentic Mauritian holiday
  • Gorgeous couples and family rooms
  • Stylish "rustic chic" décor throughout
  • Wedding and honeymoon packages available

Had been to the Zilwa Attitude since Saturday the 18th of May. The management and staff are very friendly and are highly qualified professional. Enjoyed the accomodation, the food, the sand and the beach, the aquatic activities. Feeling pity that my holidays has finished. Will surely come back next year. I request you to visit this hotel once in your life. Regards, Ashvin..

Absolute Bliss

Grantham, United Kingdom

On arrival at the Zilwa attitude our first impression was that we had really hit the jackpot. The check in procedure - 7/10. Fairly slow and could have been much more informative but, after an 11 hour flight and a 90 minute transfer I doubt we’d have taken too much notice of any information given to us anyway. Sadly, we had to wait 5 hours for our room to become available due to room changeovers but, we were delighted that there were shower rooms made available for us and that we could make use of all the hotels facilities. The rooms - 8/10. Clean, spacious, peaceful with a well stocked mini bar which was restocked daily. The showers aren’t the best in the world but they’re definitely not the worst either. The food in the main buffet restaurant - 8/10. Excellent variety of food and always fresh but, not always piping hot. Individual a’la Carte restaurants - 9/10. Beautiful fresh food, well presented and excellent service. Hotel Bar - 9/10. Good range of food and drinks, service a tad slow at the busier times. The beach - 7/10. Plenty of sun beds, good beach bars, good beach restaurant, excellent street food area. Free use of table tennis, surf boards, snorkel equipment, canoes and pedelos etc. Beach sellers - These are always lurking around but they’re not pushy, very handy if you want to book a trip or purchase a few souvenirs. Pool areas. Didn’t use these as they seemed to be designed more for the children but they looked lovely, clean, well designed and safe. Gardens and hotel surrounds - 10/10. Extremely well maintained throughout the whole resort. Entertainment 6/10. Seen better and seen worse. Location 8/10. Peaceful area but to do any excursions the travel time is usually a minimum of at least 40 minutes. There is also a children’s entertainment area, tennis and volleyball court. If you get an invite to the managers cocktail evening I’d advise not to bother going as the cocktails weren’t great and I’m not sure if the manager actually even bothered to go him / herself. My only real criticism about this holiday is that the restaurant needs to provide a decent bread knife to enable guests to cut the beautiful fresh bread on offer rather than having to use the current knife like a machete. Overall in my opinion this holiday experience and the hotel exceeded all my expectations and I’d recommend this to anybody. Sadly, I’m writing this review on the final day of my holiday sat on my sun bed overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean and not looking forward to going back home very early tomorrow morning. To bring this review to a conclusion my girlfriend accepted my marriage proposal which obviously makes this holiday experience that more special.
