Azura Retreats

Operates in:



Imagine staying in one of the world’s most undiscovered, pristine environments, private and removed from the rest of the world. Where there is a philanthropic goal of both protecting the environment and giving back to the local community. Privately owned and managed Azura Benguerra lies on the western side of the unspoilt Benguerra Island within a Marine National Park of The Bazaruto Archipelago.

The Bazaruto Archipelago has become known as one of the most romantic island getaways in the Indian Ocean and was recently voted as the number 1 Indian Ocean island to experience. The award-winning unspoilt Azura Benguerra Island offers deserted beaches of pure white sand that extends for miles, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, sunny days and star-studded nights. This is the enchanting island escape you always imagined. Azura Benguerra, the first eco-friendly resort in Mozambique, was hand-built by the local community and is operated in partnership with it.

At Azura Benguerra guests spend sun-drenched days fishing, snorkelling or diving protected reefs, Azura Benguerra is right on the beach and open to the sea. We have created several different zones for your enjoyment and relaxation, from the comfortable lounge area to the vibey Star Bar, and our fabulous wine cellar offering a selection of the owner’s wines, specially flown in from their Chateau in France. The Jellyfish Restaurant offers breakfast and more formal dining. A boutique at reception, and our Padi 5 Star dive centre with top of the range Scuba pro equipment.

Just 20 villas are nestled along with one of the last undiscovered stretches of beach in the world, with all the creature comforts you could wish for, sparkling private pools, Mozambican butler-hosts to look after your every need, fish and seafood fresh from the ocean, a fantastic range of activities and experiences, an African spa to relax in. Azura Benguerra Island is paradise found.
