Every single staff from the gateman, to the front office, shop, restaurant and housekeeping, are very humble and dedicated. My family and I had a royal service. We were wonderstruck by the humility of each staff. Words wont be enough to do justice for the service provided, 'il faut le vivre pour croire', highly recommend Heritage Awali
