Arriving at the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport
After a long, but direct flight from London Gatwick on British airways In World Traveller Plus on a Boeing 777, Review found here - BA Premium Economy 777 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, so no airport transport buses here then we thought to ourselves.
But to lighten our jetlag, 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 over to all passengers arriving off the plane and provided us 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.
Transportation to the Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort
We were escorted by one of the hotels representatives to an air conditioned mini bus awaiting us nearby. We only waited five minutes to ensure no other guests were on our flight and off we go.
The journey seemed to take about 35 minutes, along lots of winding roads and through many pretty little villages and then we arrived.
Arriving at the Heritage Awali Golf & Spa 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 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 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.
