The island forms part of the Bazaruto Archipelago, near the town of Vilanculos. The private villas combine modern chic with traditional Mozambican design. The spa at Azura offers signature treatments based on local ingredients and traditions.

They are furnished in afro-contemporary style with a king size bed, minibar, ensuite facilities, indoor and outdoor shower, private deck, air conditioning and ceiling fans, Nespresso machine  and look out over a private 16 ft infinity pool towards the beach and sea beyond.

Dining at Azura Benguerra is all part of the island experience. Meals are prepared by an award winning chef. Fresh Mozambique seafood of every description will make your culinary experience truly memorable.

Activities are certainly not limited to lying in your hammock with a cocktail and taking the occasional dip in your pool. With the sea being only feet from your room, it means that so too are exquisite diving and snorkeling opportunities, as well as fishing or taking a trip on a traditional dhow. Trips to neighboring islands and secluded picnics are always popular.   Also popular is the island drive which passes many villages and you have the opportunity meet members of the local island community and learn some of the local history.
