Heritage Resorts Heritage Awali: All-Inclusive, Fun & Family
Set in the beautiful Domaine de Bel Ombre is the Awali Golf Resort and Spa, Heritage’s 5-star, all-inclusive hotel right next door to Heritage Le Telfair. And with a total of 12 restaurants and bars between the two hotels, there has never been a more appropriate time to say “there’s something for everyone”!
If you haven’t already guessed by the name, the Heritage Awali is an impressive Africanstyle resort, with warm and inviting décor and eye-catching accents that give off plenty of African charm. It’s a great place for families looking for a luxury 5-star, all-inclusive resort that has some of the best activities and amenities in Mauritius, suitable for the whole family.
When it comes to food, there is plenty to choose from and lots of kid friendly options too. There are 5 restaurants at Awali, 6 if you count Kuzini, which is the “à la carte” section of the main restaurant and serves up exquisite Italian specialities. Savana, the main restaurant, serves an excellent and wide variety buffet for breakfast and lunch. Make sure you arrive hungry!
If you’re after something bursting with colour and flavour then Zafarani is the place to be. Zafarani’s chef will get your taste buds zinging with his array of traditional and authentic Indian cuisines. If you can’t drag yourself away from the poolside, Amafrutti will keep your taste buds satisfied while you soak up the sun. Serving snacks and light meals, it’s the perfect go-to option for those lazy afternoons… Zenzi Bar also serves snacks and light meals during the day, and in the evenings it transforms into a lively cocktail lounge.
As is customary in Africa, why not do things a little out of the ordinary? Awali offers 2 novel ways to enjoy breakfast… Try the exclusive and intimate champagne breakfast – a luxurious picnic on the beach, where you’ll enjoy a delicious cheese platter, cold meats and other tasty treats that will make you feel a million dollars. Or try the ‘Piedandilo’ (Feet in the Water) breakfast for something truly original. You’ll be impressed by the specially crafted pallet wood table, and enjoy the waves splashing your feet while you tuck in to your favourite omelettes and scrumptiously fresh pastries. What fun!
Saving the best for last, Awali’s shining star has to be the Boma. Open just one evening a week, weather permitting, it’s a real “African” experience not to be missed. The restaurant is under the stars and tables are set around a big bonfire. A variety of delicious meat dishes are cooked on open fires and in traditional cast iron pots. With a bit of music and entertainment thrown in, it’s a truly unforgettable experience all round.
And if that isn’t enough, next door, at Heritage Le Telfair, there are 5 restaurants and bars that are open to Awali guests. Annabella’s is Telfair’s main restaurant, offering a wide selection of dishes for breakfast and dinner. Gin’Ja is right on the beach and a great place to be at sunset. Serving pan-Asian fusion dishes, that are as beautiful as they are tasty, it will leave Asian food lovers giddy. The Cavendish, which serves light meals, drinks and pancakes in the afternoon is an airy and elegant lounge with beautiful views of the ocean. If you fancy a relaxed barefoot lunch, Le Palmier serves light meals right on the beachfront. The Heritage C Beach Club is also a great chilled venue serving savoury salads, pizzas and snacks next to the lagoon. After a round of golf, or simply for something a little different, pay a visit to the Club House, which boasts a breath-taking view over the golf course, Le Chateau and rolling hills. For something truly unique, be sure to book a meal at Heritage Le Chateau. Built in 1765 and recently restored to its former glory, it promises to be a gastronomic delight in an enchanting setting.
