Zilwa Attitude

Become an "islander" at this rustic retreat

Zilwa Attitude is located in Kalodyne, close to the charming fishermen’s village of Grand Gaube, on the north coast of Mauritius. This four star resort enjoys a gorgeous sandy beach on its doorstep and offers stunning island views. It’s an idyllic retreat for soaking up the sun, enjoying a range of watersports and learning a little more about Mauritian life.

Zilwa Attitude Hotel’s name is derived from the Creole word for islander, and guests will be made to feel at home with its chic and luxurious take on traditional Mauritian décor. Discover mouth-watering local and Asian cuisine at one of its seven restaurants, from casual beachside snacks and á la carte dining to beach barbecues on the hotel’s private island of Gran Zil.

Adventurers can take to the water for wind surfing, kite surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and scuba diving. Couples can learn more about local traditions with a dawn boat trip with fishermen, or explore the bustling markets in the typically Mauritian village of Goodlands. A Mini Club for children gives parents time to unwind poolside or enjoy a massage.

Fantastic and well mannered staff.

We stayed for two weeks with family and the staff were all very helpful and accommodating, and would help with any issues raised. Some of the staff were really above expectation, but we didn’t know their names. Here are some we know; Sylvano Rohan Florian And Dashan. My grandson hit his head and it bled, instantly two of the staff were there to help. Also the was varied and excellent.The housekeepers were impeccable with their work. [ also another staff member we don’t know the name of. He helped sylvano with water aerobics and polo].i would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Mauritius. We love you all at Zulu’s Attitude.

Excellent service with a smile

I visited Zilwa attitude with my 2 boys from Sydney Australia meeting my UK based family in Mauritius for a holiday. From the moment we arrived the staff were nothing but friendly, nice and sincere. From the Entertainment to the bar staff to the reception and cleaners. They all made our stay memorable and happy. Family orientated atmosphere. Special shout to Sylvano, Rohan, Florian and Dashan.
