Heritage Awali stands proudly within the historic sugar plantation in the Domaine de Bel Ombre on the south coast of Mauritius. Luxurious Awali features six fantastic restaurants, numerous facilities and a wide selection of styles amongst its 161 rooms and suites.
Its African theme compliments the setting which overlooks the long stretch of beach, the lagoon and all this against a backdrop of towering hills and natural vegetation.
I loved my visit to the all-inclusive Heritage Awali, with its helpful staff, beautiful pools and tranquil beach life. In the evenings, I spent many a happy hour enjoying the bars and restaurants.
I especially enjoyed the sunsets over the ocean seen from the Infinity bar with a cocktail - it really captures the romance of this resort and most evenings I would be there savouring each sunset as if it were the first.
The Awali guests have access to all complementary land and water sports as well as use of the 18 hole par 72 golf course.
For the children, there are kids and teens clubs.
If you want to be more adventurous, you can enjoy trekking, wildlife excursions and many other activities throughout the 2,500 hectare that the Bel Ombre estate offers.
Guests can also indulge themselves at the Seven Colours Spa or visit the 19th century chateau for a gastronomic night to remember.
With Awali and Le Telfair on the same site, I was able to experience so much during my stay and I genuinely loved both. With Awali offering an African vibe and Le Telfair offering a colonial feeling, it was like two holidays in one.
The south coast is a great base for getting out and about and exploring the island of Mauritius. The island is only 40 miles long and 30 miles wide but is packed with a diversity of cultures, scenery, cuisine and so much more. I will return to continue my adventure.
