Fantastic Honeymoon

Somerset, United Kingdom

Wow - what an amazing place! An absolutely fantastic experience from the moment that we arrived at the hotel. The staff simply cannot do enough for you. We arrived in the morning, therefore the room was not ready which was to be expected. We were shown to a shower room where we could freshen up- just what you want after a long flight! We had a seaview room, and it was amazing - exactly like the brochure pictures! We were given a hat, bag and bottle of lock rum as a honeymoon gift, along with a romantic meal for two on the beach. The food is out of this world, by far the best i have experienced at any all inclusive resort around the world (and there have been a few!). Our favourites were the Siaw and Los Disab restaurants which you book when you arrive. The kayaks and snorkel trips that run from the boat house on the beach are a must - along with catching the little boat across to the island for a BBQ lunch!! Overall I cannot fault this resort - made our honeymoon a time that we will never forget - THANK YOU ZILWA!!

Wedding 5th July 2019

Wow, where to begin. We have just returned from Attitude Zilwa where we celebrated our wedding with 20 of our closest friends and family and had the most amazing and unforgettable experience. Firstly, the hotel itself, from the moment we arrived we felt at home. All the staff were very welcoming and friendly and even though we arrived on an early morning flight, we were able to go straight to our rooms. We had a lovely beach view room that was very spacious with a lovely big walk in shower. Great choice of food and restaurants and the buffet in the main restaurant had a different theme every night so you never had to eat the same thing twice. We spent most of our time on the beach and round the beach bar near the heated swimming pool and would like to give a special mention and thank you to Keshav who greeted us every day with a beaming smile and made sure our glasses were never empty. There is so much to do at Zilwa, you won’t be bored, including stand up paddle boarding and kayaking. Again, a special mention and thank you to Jeffrey and Kevin who run the social activities for keeping our group entertained with volleyball, water polo and aqua aerobics. Jeffrey was also a top DJ keeping our wedding guests entertained on our wedding evening. So onto our actual wedding. We had a dedicated wedding coordinator, Ann-Sophie who was just superb. She talked us through exactly how the day would go and nothing was too much trouble, any time we asked a question or made a request she would say ‘whatever you want’ and ‘no stress’. She even arranged flowers and decorations to match the colour scheme we had planned. The ladies in the spa, I’m sorry I can’t remember their names, did amazing jobs on the three bridesmaids and my hair/makeup. It helps them if you take a picture of the sort of look you want so they have something to work with and take any hair clips, vines etc as they don’t have any. We hired the island Gran Zil for our wedding ceremony and for a special wedding dinner BBQ. The food was delicious and a selection for everyones tastes, fresh salads, BBQ meat, fish, stews and currys. One of our guests was gluten free and Ann-Sophie even ensured she had her own gluten free wedding cake! Ann-Sophie also arranged for our wedding favours, that we had taken with us, to be arranged on the decorated tables following the ceremony. We decided to take out own champagne to have at the wedding as we had a particular favourite. The extremely polite and helpful bar manager (sorry can’t remember his name) took possession of the bottles and had them chilled and shipped to the island to have when we made our toasts during the speeches. We stayed on the island until about 10.30pm, dancing and drinking, then took the raft back to the main hotel and carried on the wedding celebrations back at the main bar in the hotel with Jeffrey DJ-ing and the other hotel guests joining us on the dance floor. The photographer, Preekash (apologies I’m not sure how to spell his name) took some stunning photographs and knew exactly how to work with the stunning sunset. We met with him a couple of days after the wedding to choose the photos and a couple of days later he had produced a beautiful wedding album for us. Many of our guests said it was the best holiday/wedding they had been too, the credit for that must be given to all the staff at Zilwa, the location. Thank you for making our wedding a truly unforgettable and magical experience!
