Myself and my wife stayed for 10 nights at zilwa for our honeymoon. We had the most memorable of honeymoons and were treated exceptionally well by all the staff. Everyone was polite and courteous well mannered and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a junior suite on the beach which had lovely views. It was big enough however looking at the pictures we did expect somewhere bigger but it was enough for what we required . The food was pleasant and local based. Granted not everything could be liked by everyone but you would never go hungry. We had a special honeymooners meal which was lovely but not sure it was made more special by paying extra to sit and eat on the beach! Would have been made more special to let us choose at no extra cost but that wasn't really a big deal. Overall we couldn't really find anything to complain about except for the rudeness of some of the guests. Manners go a long way and the way some guests spoke to the staff was not acceptable however the staff still remained polite. All in all a lovely honeymoon.

One of, if not the, best place we have been. Particularly to praise is the way the management has satisfied all of our requests. Food excellent, room exquisite taste, water sports great(and free!) fantastic pools and sand.

We stayed at the zilwa attitude from 14th feb for 7 nights. My sister got married here and we had the best time ever. The staff were great, very friendly and helpful. We had a family room, myself, husband and two daughters aged 7 and 10, the room was lovely, clean with exceptional views of the sea. The food was amazing, lots of choice even for my very fussy 10 year old!
We took a boat over to the nearby island and had a fantastic time, beautiful bbq and lots of rum cocktails... The highlight of our week was the wedding. My goodness it was gorgeous, extremely well organised, on the beach, totally breath taking... We will never forget the special time we had at the Zilwa, memories that will last forever. We will definitely return.

Nice hotel with a very local theme. Despite myself being a local I loved the concept and the place is fantastic. The view from the pools are fantastic. The food is also good, however some more variations would be great. Overall great value for money.

We have just returned from a 12 night holiday at Zilwa. We are a young family of 2 active boys age 3 & 2 so we opted for the deluxe family room.
The room was spacious, 2 bedrooms & 2 bathroom with a balcony. No bath, just showers. The floor was concrete & room decor plain white washed walls- didn't feel luxurious at all but in theme with the traditional Mauritus feel. Our room became home very quickly.

The resort is very cleverly designed, lots of amazing views of the stunning Indian Ocean as you walk around the hotel.

The children's pool was cleverly designed with lots pebbles covering the bottom, my first thought was disappointing but my boys & all the other children loved playing with their bucket & spades with the water & pebbles. There was very little shade, a simple canopy over the baby pool would be an improvement. The sun was very powerful even on an overcast day so shaded pool would have been perfect.

The other pools were all lovely, each giving a different view & ambiance.

The food was one of the highlights for us. I didn't hear a single complaint from anyone about the buffet food. Plenty of choice, different themed evenings & each one freshly cooked tasty food. We tried the Chinese one eve which was also good but little choice. My children have allergies, the hotel catered for us exceptionally, they bought in special almond milk for them, made them waffles & pancakes everyday, along with special bread. This really made our holiday.

We ate at the on the beach for lunch each day the food was good, but very often didn't quite get our order right, over cooked steaks, wrong pizza etc, nothing major but a little irritating after 10 days. There were lots of staff, some were excellent but others who seemed on the lazy side, you'd ask for a high chair or bottle of water & still be waiting 10-15 minutes later.
The seafood resteraunt is adult only in the evening, so didn't try it.

The kids club looked great, for 3 year olds and up, but for £3 per hour you can book a babysitter during the who will look after under 3 year olds in the mini club. We did it once and my little one had a great time.

The water sports included in the all inclusive package are great, we took the glass bottom boat trip twice & our boys loved it. We paid for the day trip on the cattermeran, we were a bit apprehensive about taking our two toddlers on a day trip on a boat, but we are so glad we did it, we all had a great time, they even had a jump in the sea & swam with the fish! Worth the £20 per person (under 5's free)

The beaches were lovely, very shallow waters, which isn't great for swimming but again great for paddling toddlers. The only strange thing, was that the resort has put down strange gravel in between beaches, really hurt your feet, they also spread it in-between paving slabs, so was irritating to constantly need shoes. Especially for the kids.

There was a baby room- which had changing facilities, but also a microwave, bottle warmer, steriliser & fridge of water for baby bottles.

Overall we would highly recommend Zilwa, we would without a doubt go again- the things drawing us back- the spacious 2 bedroom rooms (the second bedroom slept 3) the stunning views, amazing weather, excellent food & good quality all inclusive.

Thank you Zilwa for a fabulous holiday.
