"Excellent from start to finish!!!"
On arrival the chap at the front counter played his drums to us (which made my day). Check in was quick and easy and we were shown round the hotel. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and was in the perfect location looking over the adult pool. Nice big bathroom with walk in wardrobe, free wifi, extremely comfy bed and a help yourself drinks bar. The room was turned down for us every night without fail with the drinks bar restocked every day. The facilities were brilliant, the pool service and the lunch time staff couldn't do enough for you. We ate in all the all inclusive restaurants - I'm a fairly fussy eater but the food was delicious. The Savana has lots to choose from and the deserts were out of this world. The Al a Carte restaurants were excellent too, again with lots to choose from. The night time entertain was always good wether it be a singer, a band or even dancers some nights. The bar staff are all friendly too. The all inclusive water sports/activities are a must. I water skied for the first time and loved it. You can paddle board, wind surf, water ski, wake board and even go out on a glass bottom boat. The beaches are a bit coraly, but still perfect white sand. I would recommend wearing jelly shoes when in the sea as there is quite a bit of coral about. The spa was so relaxing and so well maintained. We had the hot stone massage aswell as a complimentary one and they fantastic. My favourite was the two hammocks on the beach which I would ly in almost every day. My wife and I don't have kids but the staff are all brilliant with kids and keeping them entertained.I wouldn't normally go back to the same country or hotel but I would here. It was excellent!!!
We were extremely impressed with the resort, the staff, the room, the food. A special mention must be made for Caroline & Nicolas - always helpful and friendly. Also a thank you to Cindy who kept our room so neat & tidy. The entire staff also needs to be commended for their friendly service and professionalism.
"A twelve hour flight but more than worth it!"
Once the flight was done direct from Gatwick and a 60 minute minibus transfer' We arrived to the beat of drums, cool flannels and a drink to greet us! From that moment until we left the staff couldn't do enough for us! Friendly smiley faces greeted you everywhere. Our room was on the ground floor with an outside patio area. Comfortable spacious and with housekeeping of the highest order always clean and tidy! We were all inclusive and the mini bar was always full, but frankly if you can't drink enough in the bar areas you might need help' Joke! Social areas always clean service fantastic even on the clean beautiful beach, Restaurants and food were of a very very high standard as good as pricey 'fine dining here'! We loved the Infinity Blue particularly this meant you did not always have to use the Buffet to eat but food in there was great as well. Drinks were good with good South African wines included! As well as many others branded spirits and the local beer was served perfectly along with a myriad of cocktails! I could carry on but suffice to sat we played golf on the fantastic championship course a five minute shuttle ride away every other day a lay on the beach on the other days! Book your tee times early as it does get warm!!! Advise not to play on the first day after a 12 hour flight allow a full 24 hour recovery time as it is a tough walk. We walked as we prefer to but cost of a buggie for five rounds would have been a hefty £250 roughly between two! A lot pricier than at home, we settled for the £10 push trolley! As I said I could go on but just go and discover for yourself!
Rooms are beautiful. Views from rooms are breathtaking. Food was fantastic at all restaurants. Entertainment was ok. My husband played golf and says it's a really nice course. We had daily spa treatments and they were incredible. Definitely recommend upgrading to the premium package where these are included in the price of your stay. So worth the money. The only thing I didn't like was the guys who sell stuff on the beach linger by the beach Sun loungers and the hotel staff don't ask them to leave.
"Great Family Moment at Heritage Awali"
Thank You Heritage Awali crew who made our stay at the hotel a memorable visit on 14 and 15th April 2017. The family liked the room so much and we enjoyed the delicious buffet, whether it was breakfast, brunch or dinner. The Saturday lunch at Infinity Blue was just a great 5 star service and we enjoyed the hospitality of the serving team. The kids liked the pool by Infinity Blue, it was great for me and my spouse to do the morning yoga at the beach. I could not remember the fresh fruit juice specialist at Savanah, but would like to thank him as his smile and courtesy just made the juice enriching and boosting for the day. Surprisingly, the kids loved the Kids Club and spent some hours which allowed me and my spouse to enjoy quality loving moments together. It was first time trying wild boar salmi, that was really great accompanied with a nice champagne. Thanks to Raj who was in service at Savanah on Sunday Easter Brunch. We really liked the two nights spent at Heritage Awali, and looking forward to book as soon as we have the opportunity. Please convey our feedback and thanks to the team which made it great for us.
