Azura Retreat

Azura Retreat

Imagine an unspoiled island within a Marine National Park.  Miles of deserted beaches with soft white sand.  Sparkling turquoise seas, crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade.  Sunny days and star studded nights…and you have Azura Mozambique.

Benguerra Island

Inquire Now

Azura is the country’s first luxury ‘eco’ boutique retreat.Built entirely by hand by the local community and operated in partnership with them, it has just 14 villas, each with their own infinity pool and designed for both pampering and barefoot escapism.

Hand-built villas blend modern chic with all that is traditional in Mozambique. The creature comforts you would expect from a luxury boutique resort are there, set off by locally sourced wooden beams and traditional artwork beneath a thatched jekka roof.

A kaleidoscope of color greets you above and below the ocean. Magnificent reefs for diving and snorkeling, home to the turtles that nest on the island’s outer shores.

Dedication to conservation and the community lies at the heart of everything at Azura. Being a luxury resort with all mod cons we are not ‘eco’ in the traditional sense of the word, but have defined our own ‘eco’ in terms of our focus on the community and the preservation of the pristine environment that we find ourselves in.
