    Our opinion

    Heritage Awali provides the perfect balance of luxury, simplicity and friendliness.

    Hotel description

    The Heritage Awali Golf and Spa Resort resides on a beautiful lagoon on Mauritius' south coast, close to the other Heritage resorts on the Domaine de Bel Ombre. The African influence is evident at the hotel. After being greeted to the hotel by the resounding beat of the tom tom drum, guests are escorted to their rooms passing by walls painted in warm ochre, deeply coloured woods, African and Madagascan furniture and objects of unusual originality. The 154 deluxe rooms and 5 suites at the Heritage Awali are decorated to reflect the theme of the hotel. Warm colours, straw fashioned lamp shades, oiled woods and great earthenware jars form the make-up of the rooms which in turn fold out onto their own private terrace or balcony. A choice of beachfront, ocean view and partly ocean view allow for all the Heritage Awali rooms to offer a glance across the Indian Ocean. The Balafon restaurant serves excellent breakfasts and dinners. For a more casual dining experience the Infinity Blue restaurant serves lunch on the beach to those who enjoy burrowing their toes in the sand. For elegant surroundings and Mauritian cuisine, the 19th century Le Chateau de Bel Ombre overlooks a French-style garden with views to the golf course and ocean. The Seven Colours spa, in amongst gorgeous gardens, is at the disposal of the guests, as is Heritage Golf Club . The Heritage Awali Golf and Spa Resort offers four swimming pools, one of which is a children’s pool, as well as 300 metres worth of sparkling white beach and sea. Non-motorised water sports are complimentary along with many land sports including tennis, table tennis and archery.
