Castaway to the tropical Benguerra Island

Azura Hotel is a castaway fantasy: a remote retreat of luxury thatched villas on the sunny shores of Benguerra Island within the Bazaruto Marine National Park, off the coast of southern Mozambique. Azura is the country’s first luxury ‘eco’ boutique retreat. Built entirely by hand by the local community and operated in partnership with them, it has just 14 villas, each with their own infinity pool and designed for both pampering and barefoot escapism.

The 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. A sanctuary awaits you, nestled amidst indigenous gardens, 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; the villas are a welcoming place to stay.
