Imagine a pristine island within a Marine National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, sunny days and star-studded nights and you have Azura Benguerra Island, Mozambique.
Sheltered within the Bazaruto Marine National Park and surrounded by incredible white sand beaches, this property defines luxurious island paradise. Find a relaxed retreat and beautiful scenery, welcomed by native Mozambicans dedicated to making each stay special.
Guests of Azura Benguerra Island can choose from only 20 villas set just a few steps from one of the last undiscovered pristine stretch of beach in the world with all the creature comforts you could wish for and butler-hosts to look after every need. Contemporary furnishings and finishes blend with local building materials and colors that bring the beauty of the shore indoors. Each villa is appointed with a private, sparkling plunge pool, indoor and outdoor showers, and a private covered sala which is perfect for enjoying the unbelievable view of the Indian Ocean. For guests who desire an expanded space, Villa Amizade offers a two-bedroom suite with a residential feel, and the Presidential Suite includes three bedrooms, a media room, and massive swimming pool in a secluded location on the beach.
Unique dining experiences come standard at Azura and a staff that ensures that no two dining locations are ever the same. Take a picnic lunch on excursion or dine casually on the deck. Alternatively, opt for private dinners by candlelight on the beach or in the privacy of the villa. Fare is always light, fresh, and inspired by the sea. The Star Bar is primed to offer wine, cocktails, and spirits with lovely ocean vistas.
Whether aiming to simply luxuriate in paradise or explore the island and surrounds, guests are treated to unforgettable experiences. There is a fantastic range of activities and experiences here. Choice snorkeling and diving is found in the reefs offshore in waters frequented by migrating whales, dolphins, and dugong. Pampering African spa treatments are offered beach side and include massages, wraps, and a variety of therapies. Private excursions to tiny nearby islands or land drives to discover local flora and fauna can be arranged, and a sunset cruise by private dhow is the perfect end to any day.Request Information
