At Awasi, we love that feeling of surprise and wonder so reminiscent of childhood. One thing we all share from those former years is remembering the joy of discovering a secret gift, a little treasure for you alone to find. We believe that travelling is finding those little gifts in unexpected moments, and treasuring them to become valuable memories.
