About Azura Benguerra

The Azura Benguerra Island is located in one of the last truly untouched beach destinations on earth. The island sits in the middle of a protected marine preserve near the picturesque mainland of Mozambique. Benguerra is surrounded by warm, clear waters and ringed with the softest sand you will ever set foot on. Panoramic views of the beach and the ocean are available from each of the 17 private villas at the Azura. The villas were all hand built and feature Azura’s trademark afro-chic designs. Airy layouts, thatched roofs and palm-tree-filled gardens are all a quintessential part of the Azura Benguerra experience. Each villa also features a private infinity swimming pool, butler service, air conditioning and mini-bar, and decks with daybeds and lounge chairs. The 10 Infinity Beach V ...

Each villa also features a private infinity swimming pool, butler service, air conditioning and mini-bar, and decks with daybeds and lounge chairs. The 10 Infinity Beach Villas put guests within a few footsteps of the sand. The three Luxury Beach Villas serve up a similarly attractive location, while the two Beach Villas are located in the most secluded part of Benguerra, making them ideal for honeymooners or couples seeking a romantic getaway that has an amazing setting and almost complete privacy (as well as romantic extras like alfresco showers). The resort boasts two showcase villas. Villa Amizade is a two-bedroom accommodation that is perfect for families or couples who desire a bit more space. Extra features include an expanded sitting area with home theater, a wine bar, a 10-meter tiled swimming pool and spacious dining areas. Guests can enjoy the ocean breezes while lounging in the villa’s beachfront garden. The three-bedroom Presidential Villa features its own private butler and chef. This villa can only be described as the "perfect beach house." The amenities speak for themselves: a spacious master bedroom, outdoor showers, a media room, dining and wine bar areas, and even a treehouse that offers some of the best views on the island. The 16-meter swimming pool rounds out this very impressive accommodation's list of special features. Diving, snorkeling and kayaking in the waters around Benguerra will put you in touch with some of the most exotic and colorful seascapes on earth, while Azura’s boats can bring you face to face with dolphins and humpback whales. You can even try your hand at sailing a traditional East African dhow. On land, you will be able to enjoy everything from beach picnics to wildlife drives. Azura Benguerra’s spa offers treatments that use traditional African ingredients. Meanwhile, the island’s skilled chefs create wonderful seafood dishes that are served with flare in whatever setting you choose. These meals can be accompanied by a bottle from the resort's impressive wine list. What to do Snorkel or scuba dive with the resort’s guides. You will see an amazing array of marine life. Enjoy a picnic on the beach before heading to the spa for a session of pampering and relaxation. Explore the island, walking on its dunes, seeing its wildlife and maybe even taking in a football match played between two of the local resort staff teams. All Images provided by Azura
