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.

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.

Stunning.

Kingsbridge, United Kingdom

We stayed for 10 days in this gorgeous resort. The staff were so attentive and could not do enough for you. Nothing was too much trouble. Enough technical issues with phones/tablets The resort itself is simply beautiful. It is not within walking distance of a town, but everything is only a short taxi ride/bus away. However, I would imagine that whoever stays at this resort would not want to leave the premises for the duration of their stay

An amazing holiday at a great hotel

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks, with a room overlooking the beach, the views were stunning, and it was amazing to just sit there and stare out into the sea. Weddings took place every day on the beach which was also great to watch, and they weren’t intrusive Bar staff were also very good and welcoming, particularly Avishek who always seemed pleased to see us. The food in the a la carte restaurants were also good, especially the beach restaurant, we had 2 very special meals there We would thoroughly recommend excursions to the dolphin swim which was sold through any of the reps, the Catamaran trip from the hotel was fantastic and hosted by very entertaining staff, and the Rum Factory was also well worth visiting (don’t drive there, get a private driver for the day!). Lunch in the Rum factory was also superb. Our only issue with the excursions was the driver on our island south of the island tour was clueless as to where he was taking us, and we had to point places out to him to visit. Make sure you take a list of everything you want to see! I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting, it feels very authentic and makes every effort to make you feel relaxed. There were a couple of unwelcome guests; one being the little harmless lizards which invaded our room and started making mating calls in the night, and the other being some other guests who invaded the peaceful beach bringing with them loud music. This seemed to be ignored by the hotel staff, and little appreciation shown for other guests Nevertheless, a great place to stay, and a number of different activities for everyone to do Thank you Zilwa Attitude
