Overview

Zilwa Attitude is situated on the north coast of Mauritius, close to the fishing-village of Grand- Gaube. With a breathtaking view on the famous northern islets, four pristine beaches and two private islets, this four-star hotel of 100% Mauritian concept is a unique destination for guests looking for emotions, discoveries and relaxation. Aimed at offering authentic island living, Zilwa (Islander) Attitude pays an eloquent tribute to its national heritage. 

The 214 rustic chic rooms, with their unique identity, have been designed to match the needs and expectations of each guest. Inspired from traditional bungalows, they are made of wax-coated cement floors, rough walls, drift wood. The lively colours, the rattan furniture, the locally hand-woven coconut fibre carpets and the paintings and writings of iconic artist Malcolm de Chazal on the walls give a unique touch to Zilwa Attitude. 

The island’s cultural diversity is celebrated in the five theme restaurants with Creole names like ‘Karay’ and ‘Lor Disab’, where you can sample a blend of exotic flavours of the fusion cuisine.

Three swimming pools, including one for kids and one on the beach, add to relaxation, while Spa Attitude offers a natural range of signature treatments and massages.

Government House

What to see -  Government House

Government House is one of the oldest and the most important building in Port Louis. The striking French colonial structures of this building were constructed in 1740 by Mahé de Labourdonnais. It was his official residence as governor.

Port Louis’ most imposing boulevard, Sookdeo Bissoondoyal, lined with royal palm trees leads up to Government House. Outside stands a typically solemn statue of the British Queen Victoria representative of Mauritian history. Some huge flame trees give shade to the entrance.
Mauritius is one of the Commonwealth countries with the oldest democratic tradition

Blue Penny Museum

What to see - Blue Penny Museum

The Blue Penny Museum hosts a selection of maps, photographs and engravings from different periods in history. It has also a gallery for temporary exhibitions and a souvenir boutique. The pride of the museum's collection lies in two of the world's rarest stamps: the red one-penny and blue two-pence 'Post Office' stamps.
They stamps were engraved and printed locally by Joseph Osmond Barnard. In September 1847, Mauritius was the first British colony and fifth country in the world to issue postage stamps. The stamps were incorrectly printed with the words 'Post Office' rather than 'Post Paid'. These stamps now rank among the most valuable in the world.

The Blue Penny Museum, which conveys the history of the island's exploration, settlement and colonial period, provides an enriching experience.

Champ de Mars

What to see - Champ de Mars

Champ de Mars, founded in 1812, is another interesting place to visit especially during the racing season. Situated in Port Louis, it is the sole race-track on the island. It is the oldest race course in the Indian Ocean and the second oldest in the southern Hemisphere.

As the most popular sport in Mauritius, a high level of professionalism has been reached in the organization of races over the last decades. Thus, boosting competition levels, and creating a unique electrifying atmosphere on each race day. This is a great tourist attraction as well. You can expect around 30 000 visitors per race.

The first race-meeting usually starts in mid-May and ends normally in late November, with an average of nine horses per race. On average, some 60 horses participate on each racing day. Since the early 1990's, the Totalising System has been introduced and various betting combinations are now available. The standard of horses in Mauritius may not be as high as in Europe or U.S., but the atmosphere during a race-meeting is definitely as exciting as anywhere else in the world

Chinatown

What to see - Chinatown

Chinatown is a small village within Port Louis made of Chinese restaurants, shops and other small businesses. Its cramped shops sell practically everything. Many hawkers sell Chinese foods as well. The elders of Chinatown still wear traditional dress and speak with a strong Chinese accent.

Port Louis

What to see - Port Louis

Port Louis, capital and main port of Mauritius was founded in 1735 by French governor, Mahé de Labourdonnais. Its residential population of above 150,000 is an intense intermix of races and cultures. Being a vibrant spot, it receives as many visitors during daytime – commuters, locals, businessmen and tourists. Shopping and a visit to the city museums can be very interesting and informative.

The ‘bazaar’ (or central market) is located near the harbour on Farquhar Street. It opens every day from 6am. In the colourful and bustling central market everything can be found: from food to garments. In summer, it is advisable to visit the market early, before the heat of the day.
The market is divided into the vegetable and fruit section, the meat section and the craft section. A variety of local food, crafted objects and tropical fruits are sold at affordable prices. The level of hustling there can be tiresome sometimes. Yelling their lungs out, the vendors offer almost unlimited products and services. You have to bargain hard as prices may vary from one stall to another. There is also an area where local snacks and drinks such as dholl puri and alouda are sold. Beware of eating food sold from street stalls if your stomach cannot stand unhealthy and spicy food.
Pirated versions of movies, programs and games are cheap on the street but they are of poor quality and their sale is illegal. Like in all crowded areas, be wary of your surroundings and belongings at all times.

What to do - Big Game Fishing

Mauritius has acquired over the years a solid reputation in terms of Big Game Fishing. It has been practiced by locals for years and the country is now considered as one of the best world Big Game Fishing destinations.

•    Blue Marlin
•    Black Marlin
•    Bonito

Big Game Fishing is also interesting for those non-fishermen, as the landscape seen as the boat is sailing is amazing and some packages provide a ride around the offshore islets north of Mauritius.

Boats are fully equipped with fighting chairs, different rods, GPS, radio, radars, safety equipment, medical kits, fire extinguishers and toilets, among others. The packages usually include snacks and beverages. They are manned by qualified staff that will help those unfamiliar with fishing techniques. 

Golf - North

What to do - Golf - North

Mauritius has a long experience as long as golf is concerned. Indeed, this sport was introduced in 1844, under the British rule, thus becoming the third country in the world to be introduced to golf.

Mauritius has set itself the objective of becoming the best golf destination in the Indian Ocean, and gradually a worldwide reference. It is worth mentioning that, in 2008, the country was the Golf Destination of the Year title by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGRO).

Today, Mauritius hosts eight 18-hole golf courses, as well as five 9-hole golf courses, most of them being situated within hotel resorts along the coastline. Most of them have been designed by famous golf course designers like Bernhard Langer, Ernie Els and Rodney Wright.

Golf courses have certified instructors, and all the materials like golf balls, clubs, caddies and carts can be hired. For those who wish to try their hand, private golf lessons are also available.

The unique thing about golf in Mauritius is that it can be practised under optimal conditions in breathtaking background scenery of gorgeous mountains and beaches that surround most of the golf courses.

Horse Riding North

What to do - Horse Riding North

Horseback riding is definitely not new to Mauritians, nor Mauritius. The least one can say is that it is a sport deeply rooted in the traditions of the country. The fact that we find here the oldest racecourse in the southern hemisphere is proof enough of that. The passion of horse racing is shared by (almost) all Mauritians. And that, irrespective of their ethnicity or social class...

But horseback riding is not practiced only on the Champ de Mars racecourse. There are quite a few equestrian centers on the island. You can most definitely stroll down the wide (and white) sandy beaches of the island on horseback. With the lapping waves in the background, you can enjoy the sun and scenery as a bonus. During the day, the sportiest and most experienced can also take a dip in the sea with their horses! This is a unique experience that can only leave you with good memories. In the evening, enjoy the sunset as you stroll quietly, alone, with your partner or your family.

The beach is not your favorite playground ? Well, you can also enjoy horse riding in lush vegetation on beautiful domains at the heart of the island. Some even extend over 2,000 hectares. You can also find equestrian centers in various localities of the island.

In the North
Several equestrian centers will welcome you in the north of the island. You can learn to ride and jump but also acquire dressage and vaulting techniques in quarries built on a former sugar factory or just stroll enjoying the farm animals and deer along the way.

Kitesurf North

What to do - Kitesurf North

Although a lot of people are not aware of it, kite-surfing has its roots as far back as the early 1800s, but was formalized in the mid 1990s. It is often described as a mixture of different water and flying sports like windsurfing, wakeboarding, surfing and paragliding. 

Mauritius, with its wide lagoons and South East Trade winds offers all the required ingredients for a thrilling kite surfing adventure. Mauritian waters offer opportunities both to beginners and experienced kite surfers; it is thus seeing more visitors choosing the destination for its kite surfing opportunities. 

The country now counts 8 registered kite surf schools and rentals. As most water sports, these services are usually available within hotel premises, but are not limited exclusively to the hotel’s customers. Moreover, these schools main instructors have got the International Kiteboarding Organisation certification. These schools also offer kiteboard rental either per day or per week. The equipment is of international standards and regularly updated. Some schools also offer downwind and lagoon crossing trips for small groups interested in surfing around the island. However, they have to be booked well in advance for logistics reasons.

Even if experienced kite surfers are tempted to just go with the flow, it is advisable to have all necessary information, so as to know where the best spots are, what is the best time of the year and what are the precautions needed on specific spots.

When?
Since water temperature will not go below 20°C, there is no unsuitable season for kite surfing. Even the winds make it possible to kite surf all year round. However, during the months of June to January, winds can get very strong.

Where in the North ?
It is not very common to kite surf around Trou aux Biches, as the winds there can occur very rarely. Surfers will then tend to go outside the lagoon, which is not very appropriate for beginners. Bain Boeuf can be a good alternative in the north. Cap Malheureux, Anse La Raie and Butte a l’Herbe are also kite surfing spots, though more suitable for intermediate to confirmed kiters. The drawback of the Northern region is that a lot of beaches there are crowded with people, and swimmers flock in the sea. Speedboats are also numerous.
