Boutique hotel in Punta del Esta shopping area.
Posted Apr 6, 2016 on Hotels
The AWA is the second Hotel on the Boulevard Gourmet, which is the local name for this street, because there are 9 very good restos here, some of them in hotels, like the AWA. In my book, the AWA gets the boutique hotel concept right. The staff is very warm, friendly, and accommodating. The in house restaurant, LIFE, is superb. They serve a very good prix-fix lunch, 3 courses, about $20, and will serve you at the pool. The Spa has a large jacuzzi, a dry sauna, steam room, gym, and massage rooms. The pool and back deck are large enough for sunning and relaxing. Overall, the AWA is better than the Sisai, but you can't go wrong with either one. The AWA has smaller rooms, i will say that, so if you want a big personal space, go with the Sisai. If you want superior service and in house dining, and a real spa, go with the AWA. You can walk to the Punta Shopping Center in 10 minutes, which is another good feature (Original language cinema is the top feature). To walk to the beach, i recommend the Playa Brava, a 15 minute walk from the AWA.
