Hi, my wife and I are staying for 12 nights from 7th January 2018. We have stayed in the Lux grande Gaube north mauritius once before which was a true all inclusive and marvellous with no extras to pay for.
We are looking forward to staying at the Awali, however we are a little concerned that the restaurants are not all inclusive having read several recent reviews.
Can someone confirm that the meals are all inclusive and there are not extras on the menu that require paying for?
This is a little worrying. We hope that someone would kindly enlighten us as we have paid a lot to go here.
The all inclusive package includes the following restaurants and bars at the Awali: Savana, Kuzini, Zafarani, Infinity Blue, Amafrooty, Zenzi bar and Infinity Blue Cocktail. The C beach club is included for lunch and dinner and the golf club only for lunch.
For more details about the all inclusive package please do email us on email@example.com.
All of the restaurants are all inclusive although they need to be pre-booked. You can do this on arrival or e-mail the hotel in advance.
Some meals carry a supplement (Lobster) and you have to pay to eat in the adjoining Telfair restauarants.
Hope this helps and have a wonderful time.
Hi David - all the restaurants are all inclusive whether for lunch or dinner. The only difference is that although you can go into the buffet at anytime, you have to book for all the others via the restaurant services desk in reception. That’s a bit of a pain, so I would go there as soon as you can and make bookings for your whole stay, including lunch at the golf club. You can always change them later if you want to, but otherwise it gets that admin done just once.
Just back from the Awali David and I can confirm this is all inclusive! Breakfast is a buffet in the morning but you can have room service also (not sure of a charge for this). Then lunch is at one of the many restaurants and dinner is again at one of many. There is also the buffet in the evening but we only used this a couple of times as the restaurants were so brilliant. There are a few items on some of the menus that you might have to pay extra for but the choice that is included I don’t believe warrants the need to choose the paid options. It’s there as an option if you wanted I guess. We also ate dinner and lunch at the golf club - golf club dinner drinks aren’t included but food is, and I believe drinks are included at the lunch if you are eating (so order something!). There are also various snacks served through the day and of course drinks all day as well. It freaks you out a bit sometimes as they keep asking for your room number and you’re convinced you’re going to get charged but you don’t. There is also a themed night that requires booking and extra payment as does lobster dinner but again, I see no need to do this. I’m very jealous that you will be there in January! Have a fab time, I’m sure you will.
All the restaurants are all inclusive. The menu of each restaurant is very good, the wines and drinks are great! However, there are some plates that are charged (lobster plates). Even though you can have good fish, shrimp and steaks without any additional cost. The place is amazing!
Food wise, it is ‘all-inclusive’ apart from some premium things on the menus which you have to pay extra for. The golf club restaurant wasn’t included when we went which we found disappointing and you have to pay extra for the ‘Boma’, which we read reviews of and decided against doing as you don’t get a lot for your money. Unfortunately it’s not all inclusive regarding a lot of activities, which at most 5star hotels you would expect, such as the film on the beach.
