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 hotel!

Greater London, United Kingdom

Family of four with teenagers who loved every moment. Extremely clean, great food (especially at a la carte at Lor Disab and the chinese at Siaw), Whatever time of day you wanted a sun lounger they were always available, whether in shade or full sun. Lots for the teenagers to do - paddle-boarding, kayaking, gym, snorkeling, table tennis, burgers on the beach, great wifi. Going to the island for the BBQ lunch was a highlight. Our holiday was made by the fantastic staff, sorry we can't mention them all. But especially Visham from the beach bar who realised we enjoyed a cappuccino about half an hour after breakfast and brought them to us automatically. Namrata in the main restaurant who looked after us so well, Rosse from the boat house who took us out on one of the snorkelling trips and was great fun and informative about the surrounding area and Kiara from guest services who happily alleviated our extremely early departure by making sure there would be someone in the restaurant to give us coffee and croissants and a picnic to take on the journey. Their attention to detail turned a great holiday into a fantastic holiday. Cannot recommend highly enough.
