About This Accommodation

Azura Benguerra, on Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, is probably the most luxurious beach property in Mozambique, followed closely by its sister property Azura Quilalea in the north. The signature elements of the Azura brand are all present at Azura Benguerra including stylish décor, private butler services for each villa, private dining in a new setting every night, and excellent fresh food. While there are only 17 villas, we like that Azura Benguerra offers options at several different price points. Every villa boasts a personal infinity pool, thatched roof, and spectacular beach views and access.

Azura Benguerra offers a range of activities; from snorkeling and diving, to scaling dunes, to an island tour, to a catered picnic on a deserted island. It is important to note that while snorkeling and diving right off the beach is a signature draw of Azura Quilalea, you cannot do the same at Azura Benguerra. The snorkeling and diving is excellent at Benguerra but you have to take a boat to get to the sites.

Azura Benguerra is an outstanding luxury beach property (with a hefty price tag). It combines perfectly with properties like Singita Ebony, Singita Boulders and Royal Malewane in the Kruger area, especially now that you can fly directly between Kruger and Vilanculous in Mozambique. You can be on safari in the morning and on the beach by the afternoon! It is a year-round destination, although oftentimes January through March can be quite hot and humid.

  • Imagine an unspoilt island within a Marine National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles, sparkling turquoise seas criss-crossed 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.
  • Azura is honeymoon heaven, it is simply one of the most romantic places in the world. These are unique special places and all are a haven of privacy to spend the most important vacation of your life. Find out more about our special honeymoon packages at Azura.
  • On land or sea, at Azura it’s all about your experience. About doing things a little differently. About our experienced guides sharing their knowledge and passion for the pristine environments we are lucky enough to have around us. About our guests getting the most out of their stay, whether it be plunging the ocean’s depths, just relaxing with a picnic on a private island, or walking up close with wildlife.
  • Our hand-built villas blend modern chic with all that is traditional in Mozambique. Each of our 20 villas is just footsteps from the beach, yet designed with seclusion in mind. Nestled amidst indigenous gardens, we have created your own sanctuary, with a personal infinity swimming pool and spectacular beach-side view. A haven of rest and relaxation, where you can feel at one with the environment.
  • Children and teens will be spoilt for choice when it comes to spending time here with us. Whilst we don’t have the traditional kids and activity clubs you find in larger hotels, we offer a host of activities for children and families to participate in. There is so much to experience and learn about. Children can enjoy seeing interesting marine life above and below the water, search for pansy shells on an island that appears at low tide, experience cultural encounters and climb the dunes.
