Azura Quilalea Private Island sits in quiet solitude on the pristine white beaches of the uninhabited Quilalea Private Island, surrounded by lush bush and the clear blue waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary. This is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer in the nine seafront villas. For the utmost luxury, dedicated Mozambican butler-hosts attend to guests' every need with a warm smile.

Property Details

Nine seafront villas dot the sandy coastline of the private island. The African-chic villas of Azura Quilalea draw their inspiration from their surroundings, utilizing local materials of natural coral stone, makuti thatch roofs, and local wood for decks and beams. Private decks and spacious en suite bathrooms with baobab tiled showers and double vanities look out onto the sea. For ultimate privacy, consider the Villa Quilalea, the resort’s exclusive cliff top villa, complete with a private plunge pool and breathtaking views of the ocean. Every villa has its own private plunge pools. Access the ocean from your own cliff top step-ladder, leading into a private alcove with a small beach at low tide and immediate swimming and snorkeling at high tide.

Dining at Azura Quilalea is relaxed, with plenty of fresh fish and seafood options, while local produce and wine from the well-stocked cellar complete every meal. Choose to dine at the water’s edge or opt for a quick picnic on the beach. Round out the day with an evening meal by candlelight under the stars.

The protected reef system surrounding Azura Quilalea provides incredible snorkeling and diving opportunities directly off of the main beach. Swim with dolphins and discover the variety of fish and coral beneath the sea in the undisturbed dive sites, or stay above water and kayak among the mangroves. Relax under the large baobab trees in a hammock and in the evening enjoy a cocktail on a dhow sunset cruise.
