Overview

Zilwa Attitude is an upmarket beachfront resort situated on the sheltered north coast of Mauritius. An hour from the airport and ten minutes’ drive from the stunning beaches of Grande Baie, this all-inclusive resort sits in a beautiful setting in a sheltered bay, enjoying breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean, Coin de Mire and the nearby northern islands. The property offers 214 contemporary rooms, four pools, five restaurants, and two bars, plus numerous activities. Zilwa Attitude will appeal to travellers seeking a relaxing beach holiday in a wonderfully scenic location.

The resort combines contemporary and Mauritian architecture featuring wooden floors, thatched roofs, and rustic textured walls. Guests have a choice of five restaurants and menus varying between Creole, Asian, Indian, and European cuisine. There are two bars, one housed rather charmingly on the beach in a traditional fishing boat, a popular sundowner destination. The resort has a gift shop, gym, and tranquil spa, plus a floodlit tennis court, no fewer than three swimming pools, and a children’s pool. Evening entertainment is provided on a regular basis. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in guest rooms and communal areas.

A host of activities includes boules, volleyball, table tennis and tennis (for which a ball hire charge applies). Bicycle hire is available, and a great way to explore the local area. Water based activities include kayaking, snorkelling, wind surfing, paddle boarding, and glass bottom boat excursions. Kite surfing, diving, and sea fishing are also available locally, subject to additional cost. Private island excursions and cultural visits can also be arranged.

The accommodation comprises 214 spacious beach bungalows and rooms, blending local, traditional materials with clean lines and a contemporary finish. Rooms vary in size from superior to the larger deluxe, whilst several even larger suites benefit from separate lounge areas. All units have a double or twin beds and a contemporary ensuite bathroom with separate WC and shower. Each room is equipped with Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a minibar, hot drink facilities, fans, and air conditioning and all have a balcony or terrace with seating and views of the beach or garden. Some of the beachfront suites boast a lovely private outdoor Jacuzzi on the terrace.

Children of all ages are warmly welcome. The resort’s standard family rooms can accommodate up to two adults and one child, with connecting rooms available upon request. Larger, deluxe family rooms sleep up to two adults and two children and are ideal for families or groups. Each of these spacious units comes with a double and a twin bedroom, two ensuite bathrooms and a generously sized outdoor terrace or balcony. Children under 12 stay free of charge when sharing with adults. The resort runs a daily kids club for 3 to 12 year olds, with activities including pool fun and games, arts and crafts, boat trips and treasure hunts, along with supervised mealtimes. A baby changing and feeding room is available throughout the day, complete with equipment including changing mats and sterilizers. Babysitting can also be arranged, subject to additional cost, and parents are reminded to ensure that their children remain under constant adult supervision.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
