- A few things -
Awasi's slogan is The joy of tailor-made, and there's really no better way to describe this incredible property. The service is flawless, and every member of the staff, from the chefs to the sommeliers to the guides to the drivers are keen to know your preferences, so as to create a memorable journey that goes beyond the standard experience.
Take advantage of the near perfect weather, and be sure to spend time in the open air spaces, ideal swimming weather, star-gazing and al fresco dining. Awasi's thatched roofs and outdoor spaces make great use of the weather. Excursion-wise, each day brings a new and exciting adventure. What more could you want after a morning or afternoon of exercise than a scrumptious picnic laid out just for you with charcuterie, cheeses, fresh fruits and wine? Awasi truly goes the distance in all aspects.
