I stayed here with my boyfriend and we were blown away by the beauty of the hotel and the beach. The staff were super friendly and did everything possible to ensure our stay was as special as possible. The food and drink was lovely, great breakfast. Good variety of restaurants. I would stay here again as it was so beautiful and pleasant.

We visited this hotel for 9 days as part of our honeymoon. What a beautiful island and hotel! We stayed in the Le Telfair part of the complex but the beauty of these hotels is that you can use all of the facilities across both. The food was exquisite!! We didn’t have a single bad meal wether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. It was nice and quiet whilst we were there also which helped us to really relax. Our favourite bar to visit of an evening was definitely Zenzi Bar. Thanks to Anish and the team we were able to sample some amazing and creative cocktails. Anish always welcomed us with open arms and made it a real pleasure to talk to him. Some of the best service we received was definitely in Zenzi bar! Cocktails at sunset at Gin’Ja on our way back from the beach was also a find favourite. We would highly recommended Awali and Le Telfair to anyone looking to visit Mauritius. (The only negative thing I will say is that the pool/beach side service at the C Beach Club was poor. Perhaps because they were getting ready for the Mauritius Open Golf Tournament and the more “important” guests were due to arrive. It’s a shame that Honeymooners weren’t also seen as important!” ) Read less
