Azura Benguerra


Azura, on beautiful Benguerra Island, is Mozambiques luxurious ‘eco’- boutique retreat. Built and operated in partnership with the local community, it has just 16 spacious ‘beach chic’ designer villas, each with a private infinity pool, located on a pristine white sand beach. The ultimate island getaway, hand-built by the local community, who play a large part in its day-to-day life. The lodge also has a five-star PADI dive centre with training pool, and is only 20 minutes by boat from some of the best snorkelling and diving in east Africa. For families and friends, try their two bedroom Villa Amizade with a huge pool and its own wine bar, or the three bedroom Presidential Villa, with its own social area, treehouse lounge, 18m infinity pool, private chef and butler. This is the ultimate in seclusion and luxury. All meals and house drinks are included in your stay, so you can enjoy all the delicacies on offer. Understandably, fresh fish and seafood are the main focus. The open-fronted Jellyfish Restaurant serves the catch of the day – chalked up on a blackboard – and wine is brought in from the owner’s chateau in the Loire Valley. Slow down and relax, this is barefoot luxury at its best. Come and discover why Azura has won multiple awards and accolades, including Best Beach Villas in the World 2010 in Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
