The spirit of Azura Benguerra

The exceptional Azura resort rests on the idyllic shoreline of Benguerra Island. Built entirely by hand by the local community, Azura offers 18 splendid villas set amidst indigenous gardens only steps away from the beach. Each villa features a beautiful ensuite bathroom with an alfresco shower, a dressing area, a huge comfy bed, a private plunge pool, a beachside sala, a sundeck and day beds.

Guests are assigned a dedicated Mozambican host, who will attend to their every need for the duration of their stay. Dining is a delectable affair, with a superb seafood menu. Meals can be savoured in the restaurant, on the beach or at a picnic in a romantic and secluded spot. Azura houses a decadent and luxurious spa, as well as a water sports centre that offers adventures such as scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing, big game fishing and kayaking. Island drives and cultural excursions can also be arranged.

What we love about Azura Benguerra

  • Indulge in a “Tribal Traditions” massage, which mimics the beating of African drums, at the Azura Spa.
  • Ask your host to prepare a secluded beach picnic or a romantic candlelit beach dinner at your villa.
  • Embark on a scenic sunset cruise on a traditional dhow and witness the sun disappearing beneath the African horizon.
