    No ,"اهلا بك " Does not express heartily greeting. it is very formal.
    you can say يا أهلا وسهلا
    this يا gives it that "heartily".

    " اهلا بك" او يمكنك استعمال "مرحبا بك "

    you can express it in many situation:
    أهلاً بك
    -to welcome someone.
    -also mean hello, hi
    when some one say (hi, welcome you) they 'll say
    أهلاً وسهلاُ / أهلاً بك / أهلاً

    you can say أهلاً وسهلاُ

    You can either say أهلا و سهلا
    or مرحبا

    and adding يا to each of them sounds more warm and used usually with people u know ( someone you have been waiting for ) because without يا is very formal and rarely used with people u know

    يا مرحبا
    يا اهلا و سهلا
