“Heritage” in English means, the patrimony and “Awali” is a Swahili word which means back to the source. Heritage Awali Resort reflects a combination of Mauritian living which raises many associations of our invisible and eternal relationship with the African continent, which is the root of our cultural identity preserved through centuries and across the distance which are expressed through the rhythm of the Sega Dance. Heritage Awali was built in 2004 in an African village style amid a lush tropical garden spread over 7 hectares of land. Every detail there reflects the African culture and their life style. The hotel is designed in small, cozy thatched-roofed cottages with dominating saffron and ocher colors, harmoniously complemented by whimsical ornaments and decorations. It should be noted that the hotel is adjacent to Heritage Le Telfair Resort & Spa, which forms part of the same hotel group allowing guests to use the facilities of both resorts, as well as the common white sandy beach that stretches over 1.5 km. Golf enthusiasts will be impressed by the Golf du Chateau, a beautiful golf of international level with a stunningly beautiful landscape, situated between the emerald green mountains and the splendid turquoise ocean.
