Stylish Zilwa exudes Mauritian character and is the ideal place to discover and unwind.
On a beautiful beach on the north coast of Mauritius, Zilwa Attitude is a charming and somewhat unique hotel concept. Drawing heavily on local traditions, the whole resort has been created to make you feel like a true islander, which is what ‘Zilwa’ means in Creole. From the simple, yet stylish rooms to the wonderful local dishes and cultural experiences, the aim is to make you feel like you’re in a home away from home.
Not only does Zilwa offer local delicacies, it also serves Indian, Chinese and European cuisine to reflect the diversity of the island. Each restaurant gives you a new taste experience, while many also host special cooking evenings where you can try your hand at creating Creole cuisine, and enjoy it afterwards. What really sets Zilwa apart is its experiences; it really runs with the islander vibe and makes sure you’re doing things that provide a taste of the real Mauritius. You can enjoy dinner with a local family in their home, take a Creole language lesson or explore a bazaar.
Contemporary rooms are inspired by traditional Mauritian seaside bungalows, with a ‘rustic chic’ design. They feature the standard mod cons as well as pieces created by local artists and craftsmen. You’ll also get a pair of traditional ‘Dodo’ flip flops to use and take home with you. Everything from the Superior Rooms and adults-only Couple Deluxe Rooms up to the Family Apartments and couples-only Privilege Junior Beachfront Suites has a real welcoming vibe and plenty of authentic touches.
