Surrounded by the turquoise Indian Ocean waters, the island is an unspoilt haven of swaying palms and soft white sand, reached via a 10 minute helicopter flight from the mainland. Blending modern chic and traditional Mozambique, the 18 luxurious villas are just footsteps from the beach. Each has its own private pool, outdoor sala and deck. A two-bedroom villa and presidential suite are available for those requiring additional space. Dining is all part of the experience, and in a variety of different venues: from breakfast in the main area, to dinner on the beach under the stars, the gorgeous views and ocean breezes adding to the island ambiance.
Azura has a spa and a fully-equipped 5 star PADI dive centre. A wide variety of optional activities can be arranged at an additional cost: landrover island drives, sunset dhow cruises, diving, snorkelling, fishing and island hopping. Benguerra’s considerable tidal range means low tide could be a fair distance from Azura.
