Azura Benguerra Island
Benguerra Island
Azura is located on Benguerra Island within the Bazaruto Marine National Park. Benguerra Island lies 14km north east of Vilanculos, the nearest town and site of the international airport.

Hotel Overview

Imagine an unspoilt island within a National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, swaying palms, sunny days and star studded nights and you have Azura Mozambique.

Their handbuilt 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. Each is just footsteps from the beach, yet designed with seclusion in mind. Nestled amidst indigenous gardens, they have created your own sanctuary. A haven of rest and relaxation, where you can feel at one with the environment. A fusion of indoor and outdoor space where time becomes your own. Wander down to the pristine white beach and welcoming azure sea beyond. Lounge around on plump cushions on your daybed, or tan in private and cool off in your sparkling plunge pool. Dine on your deck, or sip champagne in your beachside Sala as the sun goes down. Lie in your bath and gaze at the view, or shower beneath the stars. Do whatever you want to do. Their villas are a welcoming place to stay. You may not want to leave them at all.

Our top chef combines local ingredients with contemporary style and flair, with an emphasis on fresh fish and seafood. We always offer a choice of dishes, and our chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have. Dinner is always a special event, eaten on the beach by candlelight beneath the stars whenever we can. There's a choice of main course, with the emphasis on local seafood, and we offer snacks in the Star Bar before dinner including fresh sushi when our fishermen have been lucky in their catch. Our 7 course tasting menu showcasing the chef's favourite creations is a highlight of the week, along with our 'Fruits de Mer' platter and Traditional Dhow Barbeque.

Azura Spa
Azura's spa has 2 double treatment rooms located right on the beach and open to the breezes so that you feel at one with nature. Our signature treatments are based on local ingredients and traditions, and offer a wonderfully relaxing and pampering experience. Our signature treatments take their inspiration from the very heart of Africa. Be rubbed down with 5 carats of genuine diamond dust in our 'Diamonds are Forever' Scrub for the ultimate in glitz. Or try a 'Butter me up' wrap using a unique blend of African body butters and oils, including the highly prized Mongongo Nut Oil. Follow that up with a relaxing massage using the new beauty miracle, Marula Oil.

Azura Conservation
Their dedication to conservation and the community lies at the heart of everything we do. Being a luxury resort with all mod cons they are not ?eco? in the traditional sense of the word, but have defined their own ?eco? in terms of their focus on the community and the preservation of the pristine environment that they find themselves in. They are one of only a handful of resorts in Mozambique where the community are major contributors and stakeholders. Gabriel and his family, after whom the site is named, first established a tourism business there several years ago. They are major stakeholders in the resort, and continue to be involved on a daily basis.
