Azura Benguerra

Mozambique’s first luxury boutique eco-retreat, Azura Benguerra was instrumental in raising the country’s luxury benchmark to new unsurpassed heights and in so doing, established Mozambique as a serious contender in the style stakes. If ever an island hideaway was said to have perfected the art of laid-back luxury castaway living in beach bliss, then this would have to be it! Nestled on the idyllic shoreline of little known Benguerra Island – the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago in southern Mozambique – Azura’s 20 stunning villas are reached via an exhilarating 15 minute scenic helicopter flight from Vilanculos. Honeymooners, romantics and divers will be in heaven here and what’s more, it combines perfectly with a safari in South Africa (there are regular flights to Vilanculos from Johannesburg and Kruger Mpumalanga airports).

SLEEP

Pure pampering and privacy are the keynotes here. A wonderful blend of contemporary modern African-chic with all that is traditional in Mozambique, each villa is a private sanctuary, designed with the utmost seclusion in mind. A fusion of indoor and outdoor space with little but the gentle sea breezes to disturb the solitude, each villa nestles amidst the indigenous trees and bush, just footsteps from the island’s squeaky clean pristine white sand. Better still, Azura was hand-built by the local community and is operated in partnership with it. The villas each have their own private pool, a sundeck and outdoor sala. Mozambican butler-hosts look after your every need while you relax and melt into the sea’s countless shades of turquoise. Life really is a beach here!

There are three Beach Villas (the smallest with plunge pools), three Luxury Beach Villas (slightly bigger), 10 Infinity Beach Villas with 5 metre swimming pools, two lavish 172 square metre ultra-indulgent and utterly private one-bedroom Royal Beach Villas, the stunning two bedroom Villa Amizade with a 10 metre pool and the spectacular three bedroom Presidential Villa with 16 metre pool – the epitome of style and luxury! Your all-inclusive stay even includes a 15 minute refresher massage on your day of arrival, a land rover island drive and a dhow cruise.

EAT

Dine on fresh seafood, watch local dhows crisscross the horizon, enjoy star studded nights and savour the kaleidoscope of colour that greets you above and below the water. Azura's aim is for you never to dine in the same place! Enjoy breakfast at the water's edge, a picnic lunch on a remote island and dine on a candlelit beach beneath the stars!

PLAY & PAMPER

Go snorkelling and scuba-diving (there’s a PADI dive centre), horse riding, fishing, sail at sunset on Azura’s dhow and picnic in splendid isolation on a deserted sand bank. The incredible reefs offer an array of fish and corals, turtles, dolphins, rays and even migrating humpback whales in season (July to October). When revitalisation beckons, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment! Azura’s spa signature treatments are based on local ingredients and traditions. Try the 'Tribal Traditions' massage, where olive and shea butter is poured all over the body and massage strokes mimic the beating of African drums! This is definitely a place to lie back and be pampered!
