Azura Beach Holiday

Stay in a stunning location on the western coastline of Benguerra Island. Elegant accommodation, a highly personalised level of care and a wide range of land and water-based activities make Azura a fantastic destination for travellers.

Azura Beach Holiday: Summary

Azura Beach Holiday in a nutshell

Situated on the western coast of Benguerra Island, within a marine national park, Azura Benguerra is arguably one of the more exclusive destinations on the Bazaruto Archipelago.

Each villa has its own butler and offers an especially personalised service which, whilst attentive, is never over-bearing. This high level of care, coupled with the stunning beachfront location and luxurious design, makes it a wonderful destination for honeymooners – although as all of Azura’s unique villas are elegantly designed and come in differing styles and sizes, it’s likely there will be something to suit the needs of most travellers, be they part of a group, family or couple.

In addition to the indulgent comfort of the rooms, Azura has a spa and occupies a stunning stretch of white sandy beach. The setting is one to encourage utter relaxation, where spectacular views across the ocean catch the orange hues of sunset and technicolour coral reefs beckons beneath the waves.

A great destination for discovery as well as relaxation, Azura offers a range of land and water-based activities through which to explorer. Their fleet of seven boats allows considerable flexibility with these activities, among which are scuba diving, snorkelling trips, fly-fishing, island hopping and sunset dhow cruises.

Whether guests wish to adventure further inland with island drives, discover the myriad marine creatures below the waves or simply unwind in a hammock admiring the view, they will be able to do so in complete comfort, with a peaceful backdrop and the assistance of a friendly, top-quality team.

Azura Benguerra, or 'Azura Retreat' as it's often simply referred to, lies on the western coast of Benguerra Island. Although it opened in October 2007, it remains the 'newest' beach lodge on the Bazaruto Archipelago. With only 20 individual villas, it is also probably the most luxurious and exclusive.
