Would 100% recommend the hotel Awali. We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was idyllic! The staff couldn’t of been any more helpful and the setting was stunning. The hotel was very clean and the food was amazing. Could maybe do with slightly more evening entertainment etc.

We enjoyed a fabulous week again at the Heritage Awali. Great location, excellent food ,especially the Indian restaurant from chef Virender , and exceptional service also from Varsha, Sheama and Anish throughout our stay. Throughly recommend this as a destination and also try a massage in the spa 🙂. The only down point in our stay was the treatment of staff at the sister resort Heritage Telfair where we inadvertently ended up there after our dinner at the chateau. We were escorted to the gate and advised that we should walk down the road in the pitch dark to the Awali. We realised how dangerous this was as cars were unable to see us on this road and after much persuasion the gate staff eventually called for a car to pick us up. We were very disappointed at our treatment here but nonetheless enjoyed our time at the Awali where we remained for the rest of our stay. Read less

Staying at the resort was brilliant, excellent food, very frinedly people, very nice rooms and a very nice beach. The golf course was in excellent condition and was challenging even when you play it multiple times.

Our arrival and welcome were amazing. After dark, beautifully lit, drums drumming, a truly stunning introduction to this beautiful Hotel. We stayed in room 5206, nicely appointed, great balcony and kept pristine and mini bar stocked by Sandra. We tried all of the restaurants, food fantastic in all. Our favorite was Infinity Blue were the choice and quality was brilliant. Superb bar and thankyou to Kevin for his friendly service. Wandered down the beach a few times to the C Beach Club, again all drinks and food included and a very smart setting for lunch. We would highly recommend this super Hotel, the setting, service and overall experience were amazing. Read less
