We stayed at the Heritage Awali for 5 nights as a group of 4 following a wonderful trip travelling the Garden Route in South Africa - perfect choice for rest and relaxation. Drums welcomed you on arrival along with a refreshing cold drink we particularly liked the african feel to the decor. Rooms were spacious and clean and the bathroom had a large shower and huge bathtub - a walk in wardrobe as well - always a bonus! Housekeeping was excellent both the daily clean and turndown service. We stayed all inclusive and the food was excellent - particularly liked the Indian and Italian restaurants and had a lovely lobster bbq on the beach at the Infinity Blue on our last evening which made it very special. Bar staff, especially Kevin, were very attentive and sunset cocktails overlooking the beach were delightful - light nibbles adding to the experience. The boys played golf a couple of times (tee off early as it becomes very warm later in the day) and said the course and service were excellent and the views breathtaking. The beach was never overcrowded and always had sunbeds free with loads of different areas to choose from. Walks along the beach were beautiful although suitable footwear is required as there is lots of coral underfoot (this is cleared every morning so is not a problem near the hotel) As we were here to rest we didn't stray far - the evenings are quiet although there was a band/singer in the bar every evening - all worth staying up for. The spa was very relaxing and we enjoyed the complimentary massage so much we booked another one. All in all a wonderful relaxing stay and we returned home with lots of lovely memories to treasure.

We stayed for the last week of our honeymoon and return home completely relaxed. Beautiful hotel with excellent facilities. The beach club is just a short walk away to enjoy glass bottom kayaks and snorkeling trips. We did snorkel from the beach Infront of the hotel but it was much better from the boat trip which brings you to a shallow area with pretty calm water. All the restaurants were excellent and the staff were lovely. Read less
