Zilwa Attitude

Since opening its doors in November 2013, Zilwa Attitude has become a true representation of the traditions and soul of Mauritius and its people. Zilwa (Creole for ‘islander’) has managed to achieve this by promoting and giving credit to local artists, writers, architects and craftsmen and by implementing a ‘100% Mauritian concept’. This relaxed, rustic chic style is inspired by the traditional homes and seaside bungalows that have become synonymous with the humble Mauritian lifestyle.

Designed in an arc around four magnificent beaches, guests are blessed with magnificent views of rippling teal waters and the five wild islets of Coin de Mire, Ile Plate, Ilôt Gabriel, Ile Ronde and Ile aux Serpents hunkered down just below the horizon. Just a few metres from shore are the tiny private islands of Gran Zil and Ti Zil.

What makes Zilwa Attitude so exceptional is not the authentic island-style accommodation or mesmerising landscapes, but the experiences. Here, guests are relishing the diverse tastes of the island at one of the six restaurants, getting a feel for the local dialect with a Creole language lesson or exploring the colourful bazaars.

Dining & Entertainment

Dining on Grand Zil, a small, uninhabited island just off the coast of the island, is a truly magical experience. Reminiscent of Robinson Crusoe, guests are treated to a traditional Mauritian BBQ in a remote setting under nothing more than swaying palm trees and the powdered blue sky. Guests can also indulge in a number of muscle soothing spa treatments throughout the day. What dining on Grand Zil offers is more than just a pleasant beach holiday experience, it offers guests a chance to indulge and pamper themselves while still getting a taste of the culture and traditional lifestyle of the Mauritian people.

Made up of a facade of mismatched, worn wooden doors, eclectic fusion of light wood and painted walls, cast iron light fixtures, mother of pearl features and a smattering of woven rattan furniture and orange cushions, Karay restaurant transports guests right into contemporary Mauritius. A sprawl of tables on the wooden deck affords guests breath-taking views of the beach and gently heaving lagoon, while also offering a memorable chance to feast on exceptional local cuisine while the balmy sun hovers lazily above.

Offering dinners of beef brochettes seasoned with coriander and prawns spiced with cumin and lemongrass, Saté invites guests to sample the unique, aromatic flavours of Indonesia. Ambient lighting, cabinet displays of beautiful porcelain jars and an infinity pool illuminated by the pearly glow of the moon provide a romantic setting, while the ‘live cooking’ concept offers an opportunity for guests to have fun cooking their own chicken, fish, prawns, venison or beef. Dishes are also served with trademark Satay sauce and an assortment of colourful, gently roasted vegetables for added authenticity.

For guests interested in seducing their senses with the exotic tastes of Sino-Mauritian cuisine, Siawrestaurant offers a tantalising selection of dishes that blend the unique flavours of Chinese cuisine with the aromatic flavours of traditional Mauritian fare. The chef, a wok specialist, prepares decadent dishes of chicken fillets infused with lemon grass, tender stir-fried beef and vegetables and his famed “dim sum” served in their bamboo baskets while guests sip on delicate wines as the calm night whispers sweetly in their ears.

Creole for “right on the beach”, Lor Disab restaurant offers just that, dining right on the velvety sands of Calodyne beach. Guests can literally sink their toes into the sand as they dine on a wide selection of Western and typical Mauritian dishes. The casual arrangement of red cushioned rattan chairs around white ceruse tables together with the reproductions of Chazal paintings and characteristic thatched roofs supported by filao wood pillars creates a charming rendering of haphazard elegance. Evenings become an ‘adult only’ affair, offering a wonderful opportunity for couples to lose themselves in each other and enjoy a night of sophisticated ambiance and sheer romance.

Although Taba J (or “Tabagie”) is more of a snack bar than a restaurant, it doesn’t disappoint when it comes to delicious culinary offerings. Along with selling cigarettes, alcohol and some of life’s bare necessities, Taba J also sells what can only be considered “street food”. Guests can sit on rattan beach benches shaded by thatched roofs and dine on traditional faratas and dholl puris, Mauritian-style pancakes stuffed with spicy curries, pickles and tangy chutneys. Taba J offers a quick and simple alternative to hotel dining.


Calodyne is a tiny neighbourhood nestled within the colourful boundaries of the Rivière du Rempart District in an unbelievably picturesque region of northern Mauritius. Approximately 80km from the airport and 30km from the capital city of Port Louis, the village is ideally located away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, allowing guests a chance to fully connect with their surroundings and embrace the culture of the local Mauritian people. The serene coastal villages of Cap Malheureux and Grand Bay are a mere 5km and 8km away, while Bain Boeuf Beach and the iconic Red Roof Chapel within 5km.
