Hotels that claim to offer guests a genuine sense of place are ten a penny. Those actually achieving it are few and far between. That’s why we’re excited about the new Zilwa Attitude in Mauritius (Zilwa means ‘islander’ in Creole), a rustic family-friendly retreat that really gives you a taste of island life, and offers everything from sunrise boat trips with a local fisherman and Mauritian cooking classes, to Creole language lessons on the beach.
Add a kid’s club, open from 9am to 9pm, three swimming pools and a dive centre into the mix and you’ve got an Indian Ocean holiday that will keep the whole family happy.
Hayes and Jarvis offers a week at Zilwa Attitude for a family of two adults and two children under 12 from £4,899, including flights, transfers and all-inclusive accommodation in a family room.
