What better place for families, couples or newlyweds to share genuine experiences than at this rustic-chic leisure hotel situated on the northern fishing coast of Mauritius, at Calodyne. The unique concept of Zilwa Attitude immerses you entirely in the way of life of the island – manifested through the typical old seaside bungalow appeal of the architecture and décor, and the diverse blend of cultural encounters inspired from local traditions, such as savouring a stimulating blend of cuisines, or the inspirational activities created to enrich your vacation experiences.
In Creole, zilwa comes from the French word for islander, which is exactly what you will become. This 4* hotel is an ode to Mauritius designed to evoke its true soul, with 214 rooms, apartments and suites, designed using parched driftwood furnishings, cool waxed concrete flooring, and trendy tropical colours. A pair of typical Mauritian savates Dodo* awaits you, to be worn wherever you go, and removed at will – you can even take them home.
Shaping the horizon, directly in front of Zilwa, are five northern islands – you can almost reach out and touch them, by taking one of many outings on offer: a sunrise pirogue trip; an intimate Robinson Crusoe picnic on neighbouring islets; day-long catamaran cruises; and more. The kids are not left out with adventures galore offered by the mini-club Ayo le Dodo – nestled in a restored boat – and treasure-island hunts, among others.
There are no less than seven specialty restaurants for out-of-the-ordinary dining that blends spicy, exquisite tastes from all over the world…a delicious metisaz of Creole, Indian, Asian and European culinary delights acquired from the cultural diversity of the island. Vilaz Masaz is a must for relaxing and unwinding to soothing massage therapies.
True to the hotel’s concept, the Otentik Attitude panoply of experiences ensures guests will discover Mauritius through off-the-beaten-track discoveries and encounters with the locals: including Otentik Dinner, Music, Bazar, and Fooding, as well as the Otentik Discovery self-guide tour app for your smartphone, and the Otentik Notebook, where you will record all your memories and impressions. Attended by the congenial Family Members, the infamous Mauritian hospitality will fill you with emotions and pleasures to last a lifetime.
