Zilwa Attitude

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Not just a hotel, Zilwa Attitude is more of an experience, embracing the life of the islanders. With a relaxed village feel, it is packed with authentic Mauritian experiences so you’ll truly feel like one of the natives after a week or two here. In a beautiful location, overlooking endless stretches of sandy beach and with stunning views of no less than five islands, it is a slice of heaven. Just a few minutes away by boat, or a short paddle, is Grand Zil where you can while away a few hours on a lounger and perhaps tuck in to a barbecue lunch — or enjoy a rejuvenating massage on the smaller Ti Zil. Rooms are inspired from traditional seaside bungalows and are contemporary in design but rustic too with rough white-washed walls and brushed cement floors. Embracing bright colours, there's a choice of room types, as well as family rooms, apartments and suites by the sea. Book a treatment at the world-class spa and take some time to chill on a day bed in the relaxation garden whilst listening to the twitter of birdsong. As you kick back, the little ones will be kept happy at the kids' club, with a fun garden, a games room and a large boat to explore and escape the sun ! There are seven restaurants at Zilwa, offering cuisines from European to Creole, Indian and Asian, and the All Inclusive dine-around experience means you can discover wonderful varied meals each day of your stay.

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks on all inclusive in October last year and not only did we not want to leave but we can't wait to go back. Everything about this hotel is gorgeous - the views, the beach, the pools, the service, the comfort and cleanliness, the food and of course the cocktails. The all inclusive is very comprehensive with four a la carte restaurants as well as the buffet, the Indian and Chinese are among the best we have tried, including in the UK! The included beer and wine are very tasty too.We had a couple's room right on the beach so fab view and a comfy big bed with a powerful hot shower. The staff are so friendly and helpful they really help make the holiday. We were here for the Diwali celebrations as well and the effort taken to include guests in this was tremendous. This was for us a truly luxurious and relaxing break and worth every penny. Read less

Happen to stay at Zilwa before the confinement in Mauritius. It was the best and most amazing stay. Everyone is so welcoming and helpful, they have the real Mauritian vides one is seeking. It is true to its name zilwa attitude and Shiva the front desk manager is the best representative of this amazing hotel. My husband and I, stayed in the inclusive package and I will highly recommend anyone to do same. The food was amazing, I had one of the most amazing burger there, plus the small stalls they set up was catchy, I loved the concept. Activities wise, the hotel does provide u many choices however try to book same on ur arrival there as most of then r booked. Entertainment wise, we got the chance to listen to Eric Triton during dinner time which was lovely and the entertainment manager got us all dancing on the dance floor afterward. In the whole, I had the best escape with my husband there. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Cheers to Zilwa Attitude. Vicky and Tisha Beeharry Read less

Would highly recommend this hotel. The reason why I'm writing a review now is that I'm after the name of the sugar cane shower gel they put in the shower room of the hotel. Been looking for a while and can't remember what it's called. Hoping anyone staying there or staff can help. Thanks in advance. Much love. Read less
