Zilwa Attitude

4* out of 5 stars

On the north coast of Mauritius, Zilwa Attitude evokes the unique, genuine spirit of the local people. Indeed, its name is derived from the native word for islander. Located in the idyllic seaside town of Calodyne, this 4-star eco-conscious resort, certified TravelLife Gold, offers unrivalled views of the five islands of the northern coast. The hotel's design is a sophisticated take on traditional Mauritian seaside bungalows and the satisfying result is a ‘rustic chic’ aesthetic. 214 guestrooms boast personalised features and décor, while seven themed restaurants invite guests to indulge in mouth-watering local cuisine in the ‘metisaz’ style.

Families looking for fun and laughter, or couples in search of a romantic idyll in the Indian Ocean will find in Zilwa Attitude a perfect retreat. The pace of life can be as relaxed or as active as you wish. Laze on the beach and gaze out at the sweeping horizon; splash around in the opal shallows. Find the time to do not much at all. When the time comes for action, the roll-call of activities means you’re seldom stuck for leisure opportunities: catamaran excursions, windsurfing, snorkelling, pedalos, kayaking and diving round things off in the water while on land you can stay active with bicycle hire, table tennis, tennis and beach volley.

Kids are in for a treat at Zilwa Attitude. The free kids club provides hours of adventure in which children can really explore the island and create lasting memories. The Mini Club mascot is the resort's beloved 'Ayo le Dodo' who joins children on the pirate ship and leads fun activities such as treasure hunts, glass bottom trips and shows - opening times: 9am - 9pm. Adults meanwhile can unwind in the eco-friendly Spa POZ surrounded by a fresh herb garden. The spa boasts 10 massage rooms, a hammam, a Watsu pool and even an ice fountain, and don’t miss the amazing Ti Zil sunset massage.
