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 of the restaurants offers a new taste experience, whilst many also offer special cooking evenings where you can try your hand at cooking authentic Creole cuisine, and enjoy it afterwards. What really set Zilwa apart are its experiences; it really runs with the islander vibe and makes sure you’re doing things that offer a taste of the real Mauritius. You can enjoy dinner at a local home with the family, take a Creole language lesson or explore a Mauritian bazaar.
Set in crescent-shaped buildings facing the sea, the rustic rooms are chic with rough-hewn walls, wax-coated floors and driftwood-inspired furniture. Rooms are also patriotic with the red, blue, and yellow and green of the Mauritian flag featuring. There's also Creole riddles on the wall, as well as art work and poetry inspired by Mauritian artist, Malcolm de Chazal. Pink and purple flip flops make a useful room gift. The Privilege Suites have a whirlpool tub on the balcony. There are also three categories of family rooms.
