A great place, child friendly with superb service. It provides everything you could wish for. Only issue is that swimming in the sea is limited as very shallow reef, very safe for children and pools are lovely.

I organized a trip for my family to Mauritius to celebrate my husband's 80th birthday. There were 8 family members altogether in our group who had spent a wonderful time in this magnificent resort. Apart from the superb board and lodging here, the services offered by the staffs here were excellent. They were very friendly, helpful as well as efficient. Two names stood out and deserved a lot of praise were Ramana and Malanie. Both of them went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and happy. Ramana organized the private beach birthday party for us. The joyous and fond memories of this marvellous occasion will last forever in our minds. A big thank you to all of you working in Heritage Awali Golf and Spa Resort!!! Read less

What can I say? Our second stay at Heritage Awali, this time 12 days at the same resort. Not disappointed, in fact felt like we have made some extended family here🤗. Letme on the onset firstly say that we chose this hotel because we wanted to spend some quality family time with our 2 kids and ourselves(because of our hectic work schedule). And my wife has been diagnosed with a muscular disease affecting her walking ability, making this hotel suitable for her to access the whole resort without difficulty ( which makes it extra special). We were greeted and welcomed by Sawan who played the traditional drumming as we stepped out of the vehicle and then rushed to assist with bags etc.he was also very helpful in calling taxis. My wife was ushered in a wheel chair as her walking aids were still baggage wrapped in the room, and this wheelchair was at our disposal at anytime we wanted to use it. Ramana was also available to assure that our room was ready and we most welcome to enjoy from the buffet breakfast (which we gladly accepted). What a super guy he is, always around and met him at least twice daily just checking up if everything was ok🤗. Ranvir made sure that any of my wife's requests were met ( health juices, fresh coconut water, fresh fruit sent to the room everyday, etc.). Even on his sick day off, he called me from home to ensure that our requests were met and any other requests we might have. Roopesh made sure it happened, well done guys 😉. The coco shack, Anikut is the best coconut cutter in Mauritius, I kid you not. Loved sitting there sipping on fresh coconut water listening to his music. My friend went to another resort on the island for his holiday and said he did not get fresh coconut water, they told him there was no coconuts 🤔. The reception is well run by Roshan, Annalise, Amisha, Malanie (asst. Manager), and Mehetaab were all great and helpful. Mehetaab were super with my kids👌👍. Keshnee, whom I had emailed a couple of questions and concerns before we left for Mauritius, replied with answers as well as checked up on us during our stay. Talking about kids, Timomo the kids club kept my kids busy when we required some alone time. Valerie, Annabella, Reana, Daniella, Tinny, Pallavi, Virginie were all great at the kids club. The restaurants, the busiest place at the resort, functions as a well oiled machine. Yovindana, Sylvia, Avinash, Faheem at dessert buffet, all the staff including the 3 French students doing there 6 month practical were excellent and welcoming. Never got tired of eating or meeting them. The Zenzi Bar ( or commonly known as the hangout). Kevin, Desire and Nishan were always around, chatting, making jokes and keeping us entertained and serving us all the time. What a lovely place to be at, always welcoming us. Vashish the barman, works like a machine and was always in wonder at how he gets out orders quickly and efficiently, never comprising on quality. Our room was kept neat and tidy by the lovely Ooma and the other staff. Kerishma at 7 colours spa, kept my wife very happy and relaxed with all the massages booked. The activity centre, wow, enjoyed bingo, waterpolo, aqua aerobics, to mention a few. This is our third time in Mauritius, and all I can say is that I would definitely book this resort again for a fourth. Our experience here at Heritage Awali has been nothing less than 5 stars. We love the lush greenery around the resort, the fact that most things in the resort are kind of close and requires a quick walk and the place is been kept clean and tidy by the gardening staff. Really enjoyed it and would advise anyone looking for accommodation to definitely book this place. Love Room 8009 Read less
