The Hotel

In the Creole language Zilwa means an “islander”.Zilwa Attitude is the first hotel boasting a Creole name in Mauritius. Zilwa Attitude is different and unique with its Mauritian concept and invites all guests to discover the legendary genuineness of this little paradise. Situated on the north coast of Mauritius, in Kalodyne, close to the fishermen’s village of Grand Gaube, this 4* hotel is a “hymn” to Mauritius.


The contemporary rustic-chic design and Mauritian architecture of the hotel take their source of inspiration in the old days bungalows. Those charming holiday homes built along the beach, with thatch, tin or shingle roofs, wax-polished “béton ciré” floors, rough walls, bright colours and other material are reminders of an island’s typical way of life. A few design details here and there give a special local atmosphere so typical of this hotel.

Come and share our treasures, our smiles, our music, our art de vivre by the sea. Share our experiences, become an islander, a “zilwa”.


The rooms decoration is inspired from "the old days bungalows" and the traditional "boutiques". The 214 rooms have been thought and designed to match the needs and expectations of each guest; in each category, the rooms have their own identity and personality.


Written on the walls, naïve, fun, poetical and full of wisdom, the “sirandanes” are Creole riddles, playing around with everyday words. The almost real colourful boats painted with gouache are inspired by the Mauritian artist, Malcolm de Chazal as well as the poetry on the cushions are both an invitation to faraway lands.

The furniture and coconut fibre carpets made by local craftsmen, the material used in building or decoration are all reminders of the cultural heritage of the island thus extending this strong Mauritian identity to the bedrooms. Last but not least a pair of Dodo flip flops, the traditional ones worn by all Mauritians, are awaiting in your room, they are ideal to walk around the hotel and the country! Wearing them you will feel like a real “zilwa” (islander).

Restaurants and Bars

Zilwa Attitude with its 5 restaurants offers a blend of spicy and exquisite tastes from all over the world. We call it here in Mauritius “Metisaz”: a delicious mix of Creole, Indian, Asian and European cuisines true to the cultural diversity of the island. Guests will embark on a culinary trip, the port of calls, with their Creole names, being: “Karay”, “Siaw”, “Lor Disab”, “Taba-J” or “Grand Zil”.

Upside down bowl or stir fried rice noodles open 6 days a week… the Mauritian people are very fond of this so typical Sino-Mauritian cuisine as it is called here (a mix between Chinese and Creole cuisine). Here, the “live cooking” concept is a show by itself, watch the chefs and enjoy.

The Tadka is the ideal address to discover Indian specialities. Murg Kundan Kalia and Bhuna Gosht among others will delight your taste buds. The décor is fabulous, the colourful wall coverings remind us of the beautiful sarees worn by Indian women. Namaste!


Lor Diseb
“Lor Disab”, the Creole word for “right on the sand”, welcomes guests in a relaxed atmosphere, feet buried in the sand. Its bright red roof pays tribute to both Cap Malheureux’s red roofed church and the little house on Mouchoir Rouge. The open verandah, the wooden poles, Malcom de Chazal paintings on the walls, the white ceruse tables, the rattan chairs and their red cushions as well as the shady straw huts, are all reminders of this traditional holiday cottage atmosphere of times gone by. 

Gran Zil BBQ
As a couple or a family on Gran Zil at lunch time and 5 minutes by boat, be the Robinson Crusoe of the 21st century! You are guaranteed new exotic surroundings and no stress. Sip your drink in the sea and enjoy a delicious barbecue prepared by one of our Family Members.

The main restaurant “Karay” has a beautiful view over the lagoon, the northern islands and the hotel’s infinity swimming pool. Its name, is the Creole word for a very precious Mauritian kitchen utensil, the counterpart of the “wok” in Chinese kitchens. The decoration is refined, along the walls, old doors from demolition wood, over the buffet area, suspended lights.


An unavoidable stop, a Mauritian way of life and Street Food experience. Chilli bites, rotis, dim sums, aubergine fritters and pickles are among the wide varieties of local specialities offered…A must!

Kot Nou
