Arriving at the airport:

After a long, but direct flight from London Gatwick on British airways In World Traveller Plus – Review found here > BA Premium Economy Review. We finally touched down at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport 11 x hours later. The weather looked mixed on our arrival which gave us a slightly nervous feeling as we expected wall to wall sunshine from Mauritius. We exited the plane, walked across the runway towards the arrivals area, no airport transport buses here then…

To our pleasant surprise outside of the arrivals terminal were a group of dancers in wonderful, colourful outfits performing a traditional, Mauritian dance called the “Sega” to the sounds of a steel band. The dancers made their way to all passengers arriving off the plane and provided us all with exotic flowers as a welcome gift to the Island. This lifted our mood instantly and was an amazing, unforgettable start to our holiday. The airport terminal was fairly basic and the Immigration queue long. After 20 x mins through Security and another 15 x mins awaiting our luggage we made our way out of the arrivals terminal where we were greeted by a host ready to show us to our air-conditioned mini bus.

Arriving at the Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort

After a fairly short travel time we arrived at the Resort. The Heritage Awali Golf & Spa in Bel Ombre had for us an instant feeling of Grandeur. You enter the resort through a large wooden, gated entrance and travel you through some amazing, green and lush gardens with coconut trees and a spectacular view of the golf course.

As we pulled up to the main entrance we could see and hear an Indian Native pounding a set of Indian drums. This welcome to guests was very impressive and a real wow factor.

The main entrance is under Canopy and to each side of the walkway to reception contained ponds full of large, multi coloured fish where Water falls flow into the ponds that provide a perfect backdrop.

We were escorted to Reception, this area was fully air-conditioned where we could finally see the beach & the ocean. The Resort has a similar look and feeling throughout with dark wood adorning most surfaces with soft furnishings and classy decor throughout. We were quickly greeted by staff at the reception area who made us feel very welcome. We were escorted to a lounge area with comfy sofas and provided delicious iced, citrus fruit cocktails and lemon scented refreshment towels. The lounge is very relaxing after a long journey and we spent about 10 x mins taking it all in, the surroundings, the views, the wonderful Citrus scents throughout the resort.
