Azura Quilalea

Quilalea Private Island, Mozambique


Stay at Azura Quilalea

Set in the waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary Azura Quilalea Private Island is a sanctuary, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Beach-chic Quilalea sits quietly in its forest surroundings. Throughout, sandy pathways lead through the dappled shade of the forest to the villas and beaches, and a simple building style – adobe-style walls topped with traditional palm and simple timber shuttered windows – that taps into Robinson Crusoe fantasies. It’s enchanting and relaxing; the kind of place where you might never bother lock your room, and spend your time barefoot in swimware, circumnavigating the uninhabited island, identifying birds, turtle spotting, snorkelling, swimming and feasting on fresh food.

The rooms at the hotel are so large you could happily call them home for a week or more: at 75sqm, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space including a shady terrace and loungers overlooking the ocean. Most importantly, each of the nine cottages are very private. Huge shuttered windows and doors throughout give you plenty of light and fresh air coming throughout and the showers enjoy sea views. Perhaps best of all, there are no telephones, docking stations or Wi-Fi – nothing to distract from the island life.

The Haughtons

We really loved our time at Azura Benguerra ­- the beach here was ­perfect. The tide came right up to the edge of our beach cabana each evening at sundowner time. Both the staff and food were great and we were really well looked after. There was just the right amount of things to do, including­ fly fishing from the beach or from SUP and snorkelling. Overall it was just an incredible experience and we absolutely loved it – a real once in a lifetime trip.
